Italy and Switzerland meet each other in the second round of Group A. It will be the first time the two sides have met in over a decade. Check out our full betting preview for the latest team news, match odds and betting tips and predictions.
Italy 🇮🇹 Team News
The Italians have performed well in the recent European Championship Finals. They've managed to reach at least the Quarter-Finals Stage in each of their last three appearances. They got this Euro 2020 campaign off to an impressive start with a 3-0 demolition of Turkey on the tournaments opening night.
Roberto Mancini, Italy coach...
"There is always some tension in the air before a big match and it's fair enough. This is an important game and we have a great deal of respect for the team we are facing. Especially in attack, they have players who can change a match in a moment. We could change some players but it does not change our team. We have 26 players here and they can all play at this level. I remain confident that Italy are one of the best teams in the tournament."
Italy Predicted Lineup
Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Acerbi, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Locatelli; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne
Key Player: Ciro Immobile
Immobile has had a fantastic season with Lazio and cements his place leading the line for the Azzurri. A goal and assist in the opening match against Italy was hugely impressive and secured him the player of the match award.
Switzerland 🇨🇭Team News
Switzerland is making their fifth appearance in seven European Championship Finals, having qualified for Euro 2020 as Group D winners with a 17 point tally from 8 games. They went ahead against Wales but some negative tactics allowed the Welsh back into the game late on.
Vladimir Petković, Switzerland coach...
"We certainly created many chances against Wales. We perhaps should have finished off one or two of them. It's disappointing, but we're not too displeased with our performance. Against Italy it will be a very different match."
Switzerland Predicted Lineup
Sommer; Elvedi, Schär, Akanji; Mbabu, Zakaria, Xhaka, Rodríguez; Shaqiri; Embolo, Seferović
Key Player: Granit Xhaka
Xhaka is a tough-tackling midfielder who has managed to turn his club career around at Arsenal. The one-time club captain had a very public dispute with fans that lead to him losing the armband. It looked like his Gunners career was over, but the arrival of Mikel Arteta changed that. Although no longer Arsenal captain, he's back making regular first-team appearances.
Italy v Switzerland Head to Head
Italy and Switzerland have gone head to head 58 times. Incredibly, this is only the third time the neighbouring countries have met at major tournament finals. The Italians have dominated, winning 28 and losing just eight games.
Italy v Switzerland Match Prediction
The Italian's have dominated this fixture over the years. Although the last trio of matches has ended all square, things will be different here. As one of 12 host nations, Italy finds itself in the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and will surely see off the Swiss challenge.
