|It was a perfect opening game for Italy with a comfortable 3-0 win over Turkey in their first Group A match. Prior to that match, Italy never scored more than 2 goals in any Euro Cup matches but came out with flying colours against Turkey. The same is expected against Switzerland too.
This is a huge tournament for Italy. They have cruised through all 10 qualifiers to reach Euro 2020 and have won every game. Roberto Mancini’s side has had a memorable campaign. Italy would like to make their mark in this tournament having missed out on the 2018 World Cup.
Italy has achieved 37 goals in their 10 wins in qualifying. So, it leads to an average of 3.70 goals for each game. They have conceded only 0.4 goals every time, with a great 90% passing accuracy. The most incredible results were the 9-1 vs. Armenia. Andrea Belotti has been the top goalscorer of the Azzurri side. This summer tournament, too, he is expected to be the focal threat for the Swiss.
Italy’s record against Switzerland is formidable. They have triumphed 28 times, lost just 7, and have drawn 22 times. Italy has a goal difference of more than 41. The Swiss have 4 draws in the last 5 meetings. However, the most recent of them was 10 years ago in 2010.
|Switzerland scored 1 goal in their first game against Wales and managed to have a draw. Embolo scored that goal. When it comes to international tournaments, Switzerland has been pretty regular. Their run stretches back to 2006. However, during this time, they haven’t advanced beyond the last 16 teams.
Vladimir Petković, the manager, will expect his team to navigate some tricky fixtures with the game against Italy looking the toughest of all. Switzerland has been the topper of the qualifying group, finishing ahead of Ireland and Denmark, losing only once. They have secured 2 wins over Gibraltar as they made their way to Euro 2020.
The average of Switzerland was not that far behind taking into account that they have played 2 games less than their opponents in qualifying, scoring just 19 times in 8, averaging an impressive 86% passing accuracy and 2.38 goals.
Italy will win this match
This is one of those times when there is no value in taking the win for Italy. A draw in the game does hold appeal too. Italy and Switzerland are going to be a showdown between the neighbouring countries at Euro 2020 matchday 2 of 3.
In this, Italy is going to have a home advantage at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico. There could be a game where two nations take each other out. Both experienced teams would not like to leave empty-handed. A crowd of 72,000 will be the audience of the crucial match with a route the knockout possibly at stake.
