Italy vs Austria Team Preview
Italy have been the side to beat thus far in the Euros. The Azzurri began Group A with a 3-0 win over Turkey and backed it up with a thrilling 3-0 victory over Switzerland to secure a spot in the knockout stages.
A much-changed team then defeated Wales 1-0 in the third group match to become the first team in European Championship history to win all three group stage matches without conceding.
Austria, meanwhile, started things off in Group C with a 3-1 win over tournament newcomers North Macedonia, only to lose 2-0 to the Netherlands in the following match. They finished second in their group with a 1-0 win against Ukraine in the last match, setting up a meeting with Roberto Mancini’s side in the knockouts.
Austria will attempt to face their first-ever knockout game in European Championship history, despite the odds being stacked against them owing to a difference in global rankings and historical significance.
