Italy and Switzerland will face each other in Friday’s most interesting match in the World Cup Quals. Both sides want to secure a positive result here, as a victory could book them a direct ticket for the final tournament.
Italy vs Switzerland Match Preview & Team News
The home side’s unbeatable run ended in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals, as Spain celebrated a 2:1 victory. Nevertheless, the defending European champions finished third after beating Belgium with the same result. Italy is joint first along with their upcoming rivals in the World Cup Quals, and their advantage should be playing this important match at home. Roberto Mancini’s side hasn’t been too tight in the back lately, as they kept the clean sheet twice on the previous nine occasions. On the other hand, Ciro Immobile and the lads have been pretty productive, failing to score only once in the last 21 games. Italy still hasn’t suffered a defeat in the qualifiers, and they want to win and secure the top spot.
Switzerland faced Italy in EURO 2020, and they suffered a heavy 3:0 defeat. However, they are in a better form now and will search for revenge. The away side also hasn’t tasted a defeat yet, and if they continue that unbeatable run, they will stay in the race for the top spot. Vladimir Petkovic’s side has been very disciplined in the back, as they conceded only once in the qualifiers. Manuel Akanji and the lads kept the clean sheet four times in a row, and another tight defensive display would increase their chances of taking a point at least. However, a very challenging task is ahead of the visitors, and we should see a tough battle.
