Ukraine, Jun 29:  Stingy as it may be, Spain's defenders are still a little worried about their rematch with Mario Balotelli and Italy in the European Championship final.





Spain's bid to win a third straight major title comes Sunday at Kiev's Olympic Stadium, where the Mediterranean rivals meet for a second time, after starting Euro 2012 with a 1-1 draw.

Spain hasn't conceded since then and has reached the final with the fewest goals conceded since West Germany went on to win the tournament 40 years ago.

Spain's defense hasn't conceded in its last nine knockout games.

After Balotelli scored twice against Germany in the semifinals, defender Sergio Ramos says “it would be a lie to say I'm not worried about them but we are not obsessing over” Italy.
