Italy v Austria Match Preview & Trends

Can Italy maintain their unbeaten run and keep Alaba quiet?

London is the setting for this last 16 clash between Italy and Austria. After impressing in the group stages with a hard-fought win over Wales and emphatic 3-0 victories against Turkey and Switzerland, the Italian swagger is in full force. Roberto Mancini has assembled a team as stylish as his dress sense. Have they been properly tested yet? Are Austria the team to do it?

With the winners of this tie set to face the victor of the Belgium vs Portugal match in the quarter-finals in Munich, it should be a fascinating contest between two quality footballing sides. Austria has shown they can and score goals in flashes but will need a lot more of a consistent performance if they are to trouble the Italians who are undefeated in 3o matches and have not conceded a goal in the tournament yet.

Italy covered 325km in the group stages and have maintained a passing accuracy of 88% and averaging 58% possession. The Italians have made 133 passes into the attacking third with 98 of those in key areas. They have completed 15/49 crosses, which left them at 31%.

The Austrians made 125 passes into the attacking third with 82 of those in key areas. They completed 20/54 crosses, which left them at 37%.
