Spain and France will battle it out in the UEFA Nations League final staged at Milan's San Siro this Sunday. Spain upset European champions Italy while France came from 2-0 down to shock Belgium 3-2 in a thrilling semifinal. Despite just one loss over their last 18 games (in 90 mins), that semifinal win was a fifth consecutive knockout match (in any competition) in which Spain failed to keep a clean sheet. We're going against the recent trend of low-scoring finals at this level.
