Group A :white_check_mark: Who will join Italy in the Round of 16?


Italy vs Wales

After securing their place in the knockout rounds of the UEFA Euro 2020, Italy will be aiming for the top spot in Group A when they play hosts to Wales at Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

Italy have emerged as one of the best performers in Euro 2020, registering two dominant performances against Turkey and Switzerland. It puts them in the driver’s seat, with just a draw in their final group game enough to seal the top spot for Roberto Mancini’s men.

Wales, on the other hand, are once again punching above their weight in a major international tournament. They sensationally reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016, and are on course to sealing direct qualification to the Round of 16 this time around.

From their opening two matches, Wales have secured four points, meaning they have a chance of clinching the top spot to Italy if they register a win in Rome this tonight.


Italy vs Wales team news

Roberto Mancini is unlikely to risk captain Giorgio Chiellini even if he is fit after being forced off early in the win over Switzerland, but Marco Veratti is likely to feature after missing the first two games as he recovers from injury.

With their place in the last-16 already secure, Mancini could rotate, with the likes of Federico Chiesa and Andrea Belotti options.

Wales boss Robert Page has suggested he could rotate his side as he looks to manage the workload of several players who have not played consistently for their clubs this season.


Italy and Wales have met on nine previous occasions, with the Azzurri dominating the tie with seven wins compared to Wales’ two.


In 34 matches in charge of the Italian national team, Roberto Mancini has lost just twice (W25 D7), posting a highly impressive win percentage of 73.5.



Six of the seven goals Wales have conceded at Euros (all editions) have been in the first half whereas just one of Italy’s six goals this term has been scored in the first half.


Switzerland vs Turkey

Switzerland and Turkey will be hoping to stay alive in the competition with a win when they lock horns with each other at the Baku Olympic Stadium on Sunday evening.

Switzerland having entered the tournament on a six-game winning run, have struggled to carry that momentum forward. Indeed, La Nati have just one point from their two games so far, holding Wales to a draw in their opening fixture before falling to a 3-0 defeat to Italy. A big win, with Wales losing to Italy, would send Vladimir Petkovic’s men through, while a draw wouldn’t really help their chances of going through as a best third-placed team.

As for Turkey, they too came into the competition on the back of a six-game unbeaten run. But the Crescent and Stars have had a torrid beginning to the tournament, with back-to-back defeats against Italy and Wales relegating them to the bottom of the standings in Group A. A win here could, however, see them move above Switzerland and remain hopeful of going through the knockouts as one of the four best third-placed teams.


Switzerland vs Turkey Team News

Vladimir Petkovic started the same XI against both Wales and Italy but could make changes here, with Steven Zuber coming off the bench in Switzerland’s 3-0 loss to Italy to provide one of the few bright sparks.

Turkey reshuffled their pack for the Wales defeat but are still yet to score in the tournament and manager Senol Gunes will no doubt ring the changes once again.


Switzerland and Turkey have clashed 15 times in the past, with the former winning as many as eight of those fixtures while the latter have come out on top just four times (D3).


Switzerland have failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last five matches.


Turkey, meanwhile, have failed to score in three of their last four contests.



19 - Germany’s fourth goal yesterday against Portugal scored by Robin Gosens came at the end of a move of 19 passes, the most passes before a goal at EURO 2020. Tiki-taka.
