Italy v Switzerland Match Preview & Trends

Mancini looking to seal early qualification

After a dominant display on the tournament’s opening fixture, Roberto Mancini will want his Italian side to continue with the full-throttle approach that served them well against Turkey. After a frustrating first half in which Turkey ran themselves into the ground, The Azzurri hammered home their dominance with three second-half goals to complete an emphatic victory. 

Switzerland were denied a win against Wales in the dying moments when their winning effort was ruled out for offside in a tight but correct decision. Vladimir Petrovic will know that a result in this fixture will give them a great chance of progression going into the last match against Turkey. In their opening fixture, the Swiss were quietly efficient and largely in control for long periods against Wales. 

Switzerland managed 62% possession, which they can expect not to match against Italy but impressively had 88% passing accuracy. They will once again need to at least match this figure to have any chance when competing with the strong Italian midfield. Their 40 attacks only created one opportunity but they were clinical enough to score from it and penetrate the Welsh goal-line in the 1-1 draw in Baku.

Interestingly Italy fell just short of these statistics with 61% and 87% passing accuracy against the Turks. They did however win comfortably and made 58 passes in the attacking third, with 45 of them in key areas. The Italians covered a lot of ground too with a total of 111.3km compared to Switzerland’s running amount of 87km.

Key trends

4 out of the last 5 games between these two nations have ended in a draw
