After a heroic display of football against Turkey, Italy restricted the semi-Europeans to zero shot on target.
They will be taking on their local rivals, Switzerland, on the second matchday of UEFA Euro 2020.
Italy 2-0 Switzerland
Italy 3-0 Switzerland
On the opening night of UEFA Euro 2020, Italy lived up to the expectations of its fans.
However, they have a solid chance to seal the qualification if they succeed in beating Switzerland today. The team looks good on paper. The only force that will stop them from winning the game is the Azzurri themselves.
It will be difficult for the Switzerland manager to win against the most in-form side of UEFA Euro 2020.
They face an adverse challenge, but Petkovic is optimistic about his side, and he thinks that his team can fight against all the odds to get away with a point.
After Berardi got replaced by Chiesa just before the full-time whistle, we’re expecting him to be dropped to the bench in the second game.
Other than that, we should be expecting the same lineup from both teams.
Italy: Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Locatelli; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne
Switzerland: Sommer; Elvedi, Akanji, Schar; Mbabu, Xhaka, Freuler, Rodriguez; Shaqiri; Embolo, Seferovic
Italy is in their life form, and at present they are not stopped. They could even emerge as the underdogs to win the UEFA Euro 2020.
Our prediction: Italy 2-0 Switzerland
The Swiss will make persistent efforts to get away with a point, but the hosts will push the ball fluently to gain three points from the game.
