Switzerland vs Italy Match Preview & Team News
The hosts booked two wins so far from the same number of matches played, and they look forward to keeping up in the same fashion. Vladimir Petkovic’s side was one of the biggest overachievers in EURO 2020, as they reached the quarter-finals. The Swiss are a tricky team with strong determination that can upset anyone. France felt that on their skin in the EURO 2020 as they dropped a two-goal advantage in the last ten minutes of the game. In the front, Haris Seferovic and the lads are dangerous, while Switzerland is not that easy to beat in defense. If the home side can put another disciplined performance, they might remain undefeated here.
Italy’s unbeatable run is still active, and the current European champions don’t want to stop there. They top Group C being four points ahead of their upcoming rivals. However, Switzerland has two games in hand, and Azzurri seek points on this tricky road. Roberto Mancini’s side heads to this game after picking up a point against Bulgaria at the home ground. Since it was quite an unexpected draw, the visitors want to get back on the winning track.
