Spain and Italy meet for the third EURO running at the Stade de France on Monday, resuming one of football's great rivalries. EURO2016.com takes a trip down memory lane.

Spain and Italy will renew one of football's great rivalries in Monday's UEFA EURO 2016 quarter-final at the Stade de France.

The teams have met eight times at major tournaments, with Italy having the upper hand until Spain beat them on penalties on their way to winning UEFA EURO 2008. "Spain have been our nemesis since 2008," says Giorgio Chiellini. "I like the word 'revenge,' but we need to put it into practice."

EURO2016.com picks out five meetings to remember.

1934 World Cup quarter-finals: Italy 1-1 Spain; Italy 1-0 Spain (replay)
Their first clash at a major tournament was a bruising affair. Italy did most of the bruising. Luis Regueiro and Giovanni Ferrari exchanged goals in Florence, and the game remained 1-1 after extra time which meant a replay the following day. Spain, licking their wounds, were forced to make seven changes and Giuseppe Meazza soon put the hosts ahead. Spain then had two goals ruled out as they were eliminated.

EURO '88 group stage: Italy 1-0 Spain
A tactical battle supreme in Frankfurt, with a 19-year-old Italy defender playing a star role: enter Paolo Maldini. For 90 minutes he marked Spain's vaunted winger Míchel out of the game, paving the way for the only goal midway through the second half. Carlo Ancelotti threading a pass towards Alessandro Altobelli, whose dummy allowed Gianluca Vialli to strike low beyond Andoni Zubizarreta.

1994 World Cup quarter-finals: Italy 2-1 Spain
A simmering rivalry well and truly reached boiling point in Boston. Dino Baggio's long-range strike gave Italy the lead, but the real action came after the break. A nasty flying elbow from Mauro Tassotti caught Luis Enrique in the face – an incident bad enough to earn him an eight-match ban, but unpunished on the day. José Luis Caminero did make it 1-1 but two minutes from time, after a sensational end-to-end move, Roberto Baggio rounded Zubizarreta to fire in the winner.

UEFA EURO 2008 quarter final: Spain 0-0 Italy (Spain win 4-2 on pens)
Spain had never beaten Italy in a competitive game prior to this breakthrough night in Vienna. "I saw nerves in the players," said Luis Aragonés. "My message over and over was that we were the better side and we'd go through." And they did, as Iker Casillas denied Daniele De Rossi and Antonio Di Natale from the spot, leaving Cesc Fàbregas to win it. The 74-year curse was broken.

UEFA EURO 2012 final: Spain 4-0 Italy
Spain had failed to truly sparkle in Poland and Ukraine, though it soon became clear in Kyiv that they had been saving the best for last. David Silva headed in the opener following a mesmeric passing exchange, then Jordi Alba scurried through to make it 2-0. Italy never recovered. After the break Fernando Torres scored for a second EURO final running then teed up fellow substitute Juan Mata to cap a Spain masterclass.
