Euro 2020 – Wednesday 16th June 20.00
It’s Italy vs Switzerland in both teams second Euro 2020 Group A game. We take a look at the stats and best football tips.
The second group games of Euro 2020 kick off on Wednesday and we take a look at Italy vs Switzerland. These two teams last played in 1962 so there is unfortunately not a lot to go on there, Italy won 3-0.
Turkey and Wales make up the group, Italy look like they have top spot sewn up but the battle for second looks tight. The bookies rate Italy 4/7 favourites, with the draw at 29/10 and Switzerland 11/2.
Italy faced Turkey in their first match and put in a very impressive performance to win 3-0. Switzerland played Wales and drew 1-1 despite dominating possession, corners and shots.
Italy – PL 10 | Won 10 | GF 37 | GA 4
The Italians faced a much fancied Turkey side in their first group game and put it an excellent performance to win 3-0. Italy dominated the match with 63% possession, 24 shots and 8 corners. Turkey were restricted to just 3 shots and 0 on target, which tells you how convincing the win was. Italy certainly know how to score hitting 37 in their 10 qualification matches and against Turkey they kept going and looking to add more. They only conceded 4 goals in qualification and never looked likely to concede against Turkey.
- Ciro Immobile – 1 goal in 1 appearance & 2.25 SOT per 90
- Lorenzo Insigne – 1 goal in 1 appearance & 2.25 SOT per 90
Switzerland – PL 8 | Won 5 | GF 19 | GA 6
The Swiss have been in great form winning 8 games in a row prior to Euro 2020 but will probably feel they should have made that 9 in a row against Wales given the games will probably only get tougher. Switzerland kept 63% of possession, had 18 shots and won 12 corners. They will do well to keep that up against Italy and i think it is pretty hard to tell whether Switzerland will fare any better than Turkey as they have not been tested of late.
- Breel Embolo – 1 goal in 1 appearance & 3.00 SOT per 90
- Fabian Schar – 0 goals in 1 appearance & 1.00 SOT per 90
Betting Tips: I expect Italy to dominate but i do think Switzerland can help the corner count. Leonardo Spinazzola was particularly impressive and attacking in the opening game and looks good odds to have a shot on target.
