Wednesday, June 16 2021, 9:00 p.m., Rome, Olympic Stadium
On Wednesday evening, the game between the sovereign Italians against Switzerland is on the EURO 2020 betting list. While Roberto Mancini’s team could convince one hundred percent in the first game, the Swiss will not have been completely satisfied with the opening game in the European Championship against Wales.
A tailor-made Italian start
Due to the convincing results in the recent past, Italy is one of the extended favorites at this European Championship and after the 3-0 win against Turkey, the selection of Roberto Mancini impressively underpinned that she wants to have a say in this final round.
The Squadra Azzurra controlled the entire game and showed themselves to be at their best, especially in terms of team tactics. The expected tactical patterns were implemented excellently, with left-back Spinazzola in particular delivering a splendid performance.

Spinazzola never got under control
The left-back moved straight forward in Italian possession and acted in the style of a winger. His teammates never forgot about the necessary protection and one cog went into the other. The left midfielder in the 4-3-3 formation, Manuel Locatelli, secured behind his forays and dropped back a little, so that he took a slightly lower position than his colleague Jorginho beside him.

The nominal left winger Insigne repeatedly moved into the center and generated free space for Spinazzola on the wing, also because he dragged the Turkish right-back Zeki Celik with his inverse movements from his position. The team’s tactical processes work perfectly, only the ball circulation needs improvement. The Italians did not manage to let the ball run in the initial phases of the game.
Own goal as the crux of the game
In the second half, the Mancini-Eleven also showed themselves in combinatorial terms and the first goal was in the air. An own goal by Juventus’ central defender Merih Demiral was the crux of the game. Until then, the Turks defended quite consistently, then more and more mistakes crept in. There were two main reasons why the game finally became clear. On the one hand, the Italians presented themselves as an extremely hungry team, even after the lead, and the players really wanted to add more and score more goals.
Italy stayed compact, left little chances and continued to create a lot of pressure. On the other hand, Turkey faced a dilemma throughout the game that they could not resolve until the final whistle. The team of coach Senol Günes clearly has its strengths on the offensive and does not have the player material for a defensive battle.
How many goals are scored at Italy vs. Switzerland?
However, the Turks did not succeed in taking the game into their own hands and finding solutions in possession of the ball against the disciplined opponent and their good staggering. So the other goals were a logical consequence and in particular the Italian striker Immobile (→ betting odds top scorer EURO 2020), who often falls short of the high expectations in the national team’s jersey, knew how to convince in the second 45 minutes.
Switzerland only collected one point against Wales
In contrast to Italy, Switzerland is struggling with their team’s opening game, because despite great dominance, coach Vladimir Petkovic’s selection only scored one point against Wales. While the Swiss went into the game with a back three as usual, Welsh coach Rob Page switched to a back four and was quite lucky that the Swiss couldn’t convert their dominance into goals in the first 45 minutes.
Haris Seferović in particular had two good chances, although his team-mates often had no brilliant ideas in the last third of the pitch.

Embolo’s committed appearance too little for Switzerland
In the second half, Breel Embolo started the turbo several times and rewarded himself with the opening goal to make it 1-0 in the 49th minute. The attacker was, for the most part, the only player in his team who could call up an absolute top performance, also because his colleagues were far too passive after the 1-0 win and the Welsh made it up.
Kieffer Moore punished this in the 74th minute when he headed the equalizer to make it 1-1. In the closing stages, Vladimir Petkovic’s team woke up a little, but the winning goal wasn’t scored
Betting tip – Italy wins without conceding a goal
Italy not only acted very confidently in the 3-0 win against Turkey, but also in the months before that. There have been nine wins in the last nine games and the goal difference was 28-0! Mancini proved that he can cope with the absence of Marco Verratti, who should slip into the Starting Eleven in later phases of the tournament, and wants to make everything clear against Switzerland.
With a win against the Swiss, the promotion to the knockout phase would be one hundred percent clear, which is why you shouldn’t expect a lot of rotation. Only Francesco Acerbi and Federico Chiesa could slip into the starting XI, but otherwise not much will change and Mancini will only give some regulars a break in the third group game, provided his team prevails against Switzerland.
After the 1-1 draw against what is probably the weakest opponent in this group, Switzerland is already under pressure. The Swiss could look a little better against Italy than Turkey did, as they are more compact in their midfield and defense, but not much is to be expected on the offense against the pragmatic Italians. That’s why we’re guessing that Italy will prevail against Switzerland without conceding a goal. If you are less willing to take risks, you can bet on an Italy win as part of a normal 3-way bet.
