Belgium vs Italy: 1-2

This is the beginning of our Belgium vs Italy Live blog, with updates below and with the most recent entries closer to the top. So follow us as we enjoy these huge Euro 2020 quarterfinals!

FULL TIME: Belgium 1-2 Italy

Italy is in the semi-finals of Euro 2020! An electric first half that saw Italy go up 2-0 before Romelu Lukaku converted a penalty for Belgium was followed by a tense second period. Italy will face Spain at Wembley Stadium in the quarter-finals.

Minute 90 + 4: Italy players fallen everywhere

There are players from Italy rolling on the ground everywhere. Belgian players are understandably frustrated.

Minute 90 + 2: Free kick for Italy

Donnarumma is down trying to waste time after the referee blew in for a free kick, following De Bruyne’s free kick inside the box.

Minute 90 + 1: Another change for Italy

Roberto Mancini has made a defensive change, with Rafael Toloi replacing Federico Chiesa.

89th minute: Belgium free kick in dangerous zone

Belgium now have a free kick in a promising area. De Bruyne was fouled after hitting the ball after his initial cross went headlong.

Minute 84: Finished the filming of the documentary

The documentary brilliantly edged out a pair from Italy before launching a shot from 25 meters that went over the crossbar. Impressive material from the Belgian forward, until the end.

81st minute: Great last 10 minutes for Belgium

With a goal behind, and with substitutions that have taken some of the intensity out of the game, Belgium must take their game to a higher level if they want to achieve a late draw.

79th minute: Spinazzola explodes

Spinazzola leaves the pitch crying on a stretcher, replaced by Emerson Palmieri, while Domenico Berardi replaces Lorenzo Insigne.

76th minute: Spinazzola falls injured

Leonardo Spinazzola seems to have taken something out and instantly signaled to the bench that he had to get out, that will be a big blow for Italy.

Minute 74: Replacement of Chadli and two substitutes from Italy

Dennis Praet replaced the injured Chadli, while Italy made two changes, as Marco Verratti and Ciro Immobile made way for Bryan Cristante and Andrea Belotti.

Minute 72: Chadli injured

Just minutes after coming in, Chadli is down with an apparent muscle injury, which appeared to rebound after playing cross for Lukaku / Hazard’s opportunity.

70th minute: Good opportunity for Belgium

Chadli made it to the baseline and his deflected center nearly landed on Lukuku’s head, as he was right behind Thorgan Hazard on the back post.

Minute 67: Double change for Belgium

Youri Tielemans and Thomas Meunier have given way to Dries Mertens and Nacer Chadli.

Minute 66: Spinazzola with a great chance!

An Insigne cross over Vermaelen landed on Spinazzola’s boot, whose volley was deflected from Courtois’ goal. What a career for the left back of Italy.

61st minute: Spinazzola blocks on the line!

The documentary chose De Bruyne, who played a ball across the six-yard box for Lukaku at the back post, but his off-balance shot was blocked on the line by Spinazzola. Italy can breathe again.

Minute 57: Italy claims penalty

Jorginho was looking for a penalty after a contact from De Bruyne in the area, but it was never going to be enough for a penalty.

54th minute: Belgium continues to advance

Belgium is making progress, but they have not yet created anything remarkable in this second half.

Minute 46: Italy gets us going again

Ciro Immobile has started the second part. Let’s expect more of the same in this second period.

HALF TIME: Belgium 1-2 Italy

Goals from Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Insigne gave Italy a 2-0 lead, but a late penalty from Romelu Lukaku reduced the deficit to just one goal. A fascinating second half awaits you.

Minute 45 + 2: GOAL FOR BELGIUM!

Romelu Lukaku shoots his penalty down the middle to score his fourth goal at Euro 2020. Belgium 1-2 Italy.

Minute 45: PENALTY TO BELGIUM!

Jeremy Doku showed his breakneck pace and arrived before Di Lorenzo in the area, with the Italian right-back pushing the young Belgian to the ground. It’s a penalty for Belgium!

Minute 44: GOAL FOR ITALY!

Lorenzo Insigne entered Tielemans and, with the Belgium defense on their feet, unleashed a kinky effort that flew past Courtois. An uphill battle for Belgium now. Belgium 0-2 Italy.

Minute 43: Chance goes begging for Italy

Spinazzola took Immobile out in the six-yard box, but the Italian forward was unable to shoot and that allowed more Belgian bodies to return. The Azzurri seem to be having a lot of joy against this Belgian defense.

Minute 38: The intensity has risen a notch

Italy looks even more confident after the goal, while Belgium’s players are moving further in search of a draw. It looks like there will be more goals in this match.

Minute 31: GOAL FOR ITALY!

Nicolo Barella gave Italy the lead with a wonderful goal. Belgium couldn’t clear their lines and that allowed Verratti to pick Barella, who drove into the six-yard box and shot through Courtois. Belgium 0-1 Italy.

Minute 26: Great counterattack from Belgium

De Bruyne drove the ball away from Jorginho on the edge of his area and led Belgium’s charge before finding Lukaku, whose effort curved into the far corner was brought down by Donnarumma.

Minute 22: Donnarumma saves De Bruyne’s shot

De Bruyne carried the ball forward from the midline before passing it to his left foot and unleashing a shot that seemed destined for the back of the net, but Donnarumma had other ideas.

Minute 21: Tielemans booked

Tielemans recovered from Verratti a minute later, leading to the referee also giving him a yellow card.

Minute 20: First yellow card of the match

Marco Verratti received the first warning of the match after knocking down Youri Tielemans, who had moved away from the Italian midfielder.

Minute 13: GOAL FOR ITALY … but it’s offside!

Leonardo Bonucci thought he had given Italy the lead after a well-worked free kick by Lorenzo Insigne, but there was an offside from Giovanni Di Lorenzo, who touched the ball just before Bonucci converted Courtois. It’s still 0-0.

Minute 10: Still no chances of it being noticed

Neither Belgium nor Italy have been able to create clear chances in the first half of this match, but presumably things will open up.

Minute 2: Lukaku gets closer

Kevin De Bruyne made a perfectly weighted pass to Romelu Lukaku, but the forward’s strong toughness allowed Donnarumma to come in and defuse the situation.

Minute 1: Belgium gets us going

Belgium has started at the Allianz Arena. Stay with us for updates on Belgium vs Italy.
