Spain's extra day of rest should go in their favor - while there is some concern about Balotelli caming off in the second half against Germany due to a cramp.
Italy boss, Cesare Prandelli said Spain is the best bet to lift the trophy.
"At the moment, even if I open my eyes, I am still dreaming," Prandelli said after his side's 2-1 victory over Germany in the semifinals, where Balotelli scored both goals.
"Spain remain favorites because of the years of hard work that they have put in. They have been dominant in every game they've played so far."
Spain hasn't lost in a European Championship game in eight years.
Pirlo, Balotelli, and Cassano are leading one of Italy's most agressive squads in recent history.
"We always just tried to play, I think that is our strength," said Prandelli, whose team is bidding to give Italy its second European title, the same number as Spain and France.
"When we started off at this tournament, we were convinced that by working in a certain way we could become a proper team - not just a quality team, but also a team with the right spirit."
Spain has not conceded since that opening draw with Italy and hasn't conceded a goal in nine elimination games at major tournaments.
Spain's attack has featured a rotating cast of forwards, with attacking midfielder Cesc Fabregas and striker Fernando Torres.
"When you send out a substitute who is upset it always makes things more difficult. When you send out a player who is happy and ready to play one minute if that's what's needed, that is very important," said Del Bosque, who has won a European Championship and a World Cup.
Del Bosque admitted that Portugal had not only made Spain look sloppy for over an hour, but had taken his players "to the limit."
"We're proud of what we are doing and of course we hope to achieve what no one else has done before," Del Bosque said, before touching on what victory would mean with an economic crisis back home.
"It would be good for everyone, for Spanish football and for our country."
