Match review

The Estadio Olimpico in Rome will host the match between Italy and Switzerland for the Euro 2020 tournament. The clash between the two international rivals kicks off at 20:00 (UK time) on Wednesday, 16th June. Italy and Switzerland have been drawn in group A alongside Turkey and Wales.

The managers of both teams have submitted their final list of 26 players to UEFA as per the 1st June deadline. The uncapped 21-year old Giacomo Raspadori from Sassuolo is the surprise pick by Roberto Mancini. Meanwhile, the selection of Arsenal's Granit Xhaka and Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri brings experience to Vladimir Petkovic's side.

Italy Form, Stats & Tactics

The Azzurri’s are off to a perfect start in their Euro 2020 campaign. With 3 decisive points against Turkey on Matchday 1, they only need a draw to progress to the next phase. The tournament opener saw Mancini’s men dominate possession and had the game in control from start to finish. Just as the qualifiers, they showed class, pace and creativity in all departments.

Once again, Bonnucci and Chiellini closed down the backline to prolong their clean sheet record. With Florenzi and Spinazzola completing the back 4, this is the best defence in the championship. They made sure that none of Turkey’s 3 shots were on Target. All this happened without any bookings from the Azzurri. Combined with Insigne’s brilliance, the Italians are set for the finals.

As Mancini prepares his team for matchday 2, there will be no changes in the starting line-up. Florenzi and Berardi might miss out on the next game with calf doubts and their place taken by Di Lorenzo and Bernardeschi, respectively. Locatelli might also start from the bench to give room for the creative Cristante. This team can easily maintain 60% and above possession with a clean sheet.

Switzerland Form, Stats & Tactics

Despite a brilliant game and creative passing, Switzerland couldn’t keep a clean sheet to keep off the advancing Wales. A win or draw against high-flying Italy will edge them closer to the knockout phase. To achieve that, the Petkovic men need to improve their defensive formation. Wales equalising goal was too easy, which are mistakes that could cost them valuable points.

Switzerland’s midfield is star-studded, which resulted in the dominant performance. However, their attacking formation should attack more from the centre to improve their goal conversion. Of the 18 shots on target, the Swiss only managed 4 on target, with 1 goal to show for it. With Schar and Mbabu booked, the team needs to play from the midfield to avoid losing 2 of their best defensive players for the next game.

The Italians are likely to maintain the 4-3-3 formation. To reduce Jorginho and Barella’s influence in the midfield, the Swiss should use the 4-3-3 or 4-3-2-1. The latter formation adds 1 player on to help Shaqiri in offensive midfield, which improves conversion. If they use their preferred 3-4-1-2, they will pile pressure on the defence, which will cost them dearly.

Italy vs Switzerland H2H

The Azzuri come into this fixture as the dominant side against Switzerland. Out of 58 matches played against each other, the Italians have won 28 games and lost only eight times. Italy's last win against Switzerland came in 2003 during an international friendly at Geneva.

Their most recent encounter was during an international friendly at the Stade De Geneva on 5th June 2010. Gökhan Inler opened the scoring only for Fabio Quagliarella to equalize four minutes later.

Euro 2020 will be Switzerland's fifth appearance during the previous seven editions of the tournament. Nicknamed 'Rossocrociati', Euro 2016 was the first time the team advanced beyond the group stages.

Notably, Italy has failed to qualify for the competition only once in 1992. The team emerged victorious during the 1968 European Championship final in Italy against Yugoslavia. Additionally, the Italians have been runners on two occasions, Euro 2000 and Euro 2012.

Italy vs Switzerland Betting Prediction

Most punters across the globe will bet on Italy to win based on their status in the football world. However, Switzerland will be no pushovers, especially after topping their group in the run-up for Euro 2020. The group included the likes of Denmark and the Republic of Ireland.

Moreover, Vladimir's managed to score a goal in each of their last seven matches. The team's recent win was a friendly match against the USA on 30th May 2021.

After shockingly missing out on the 2018 World Cup, the Italians have displayed a more dynamic style of play. Roberto Mancini's are not just unbeaten in the qualifying matches but have scored 37 goals in those games. The attacking trio of Lazio's Ciro Immobile, Andreas Belloti and Lorenzo Insigne also means goals galore.

Our betting tip: Over 2.5 goals.
