Spain will attempt to win their 30th consecutive match when they meet Brazil in the Confederations Cup final this evening.

But before the final takes center stage, Uruguay and Italy will square-off in the third-place match. Both teams are coming off of heartbreaking losses in the semi-finals, with Uruguay having the early advantage following Italy’s exhausting 120-minute battle against Spain.
