This will be the first time both nations will meet in the European Championship, and both will be looking for a win to secure a commanding position in the points table.
Italy vs Switzerland Team Preview
Italy defeated Turkey 3-0 in a resounding triumph and the Italian camp is in high spirits after a dominating performance in the tournament’s curtain-raiser. Immobile and Insigne both scored goals in their Euro 2020 openers and will be looking to add to their tally against Switzerland.
A win in any of their last two games should be enough to ensure their place in the knockout rounds, however, Roberto Mancini’s side will be focused on finishing first in Group A.
For the most part, Switzerland dominated their opening match against Wales, but a late goal from Kieffer Moore saw them squander two crucial points that might prove costly. They were unable to maintain their lead and were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw.
The Swiss will have a tough test in the coming days and will need to take something positive from their encounter against Italy. Switzerland have excellent attackers and tactical diversity at their disposal, which will make it tough for Italy to overcome them.
