Italy will play against Switzerland at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday in the group stage of UEFA Euro 2020.
Italy came into this clash with a 3-0 win over Senol Gunes' Turkey on Friday in their opening UEFA Euro 2020. An own goal from Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral and goals from Lazio striker Ciro Immobile and Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne sealed the deal for Italy Roberto Mancini's care.
Switzerland, on the other hand, drew 1-1 against Rob Page's Wales on Saturday in the first match of UEFA Euro 2020. A goal from Borussia Monchengladbach striker Breel Embolo for Switzerland was canceled out by a goal from Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore for Wales.
The two countries last met in 2010, with the match ending in a 1-1 draw. Midfielder Gokhan Inler's goal for Switzerland was canceled out by striker Fabio Quagliarella's goal for Italy.
Despite losing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti against Turkey, Italy produced a formidable performance. Verratti is still a doubt for this match. There have been several changes in personnel in the squad, with Stefano Sensi of Inter Milan and Lorenzo Pellegrini of Roma resigning due to injury problems and being replaced by Matteo Pessina of Atalanta and Gaetano Castrovilli of Fiorentina.
Meanwhile, Swiss manager Vladimir Petkovic also has a strong squad to work with. The Borussia Monchengladbach quartet of Yann Sommer, Nico Elvedi, Denis Zakaria and Breel Embolo will be key players, while Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and Liverpool forward Xherdan Shaqiri continue to be key players in the starting XI.
Italy was the dominant force against Turkey, and came out comfortable winners. The performance of the midfield trio of Jorginho, Manuel Locatelli and Nicolo Barella has been highly praised, and it is unlikely that Roberto Mancini will make any major changes to the team against Turkey.
Switzerland, on the other hand, will be disappointed with their performance against Wales. Striker Breel Embolo was in fine form in that match and has always been a thorn in the opposition defence, and he will once again look to have quite the impact.
Italy have been impressive under Mancini and they should have won here.

⭕ Switzerland vs Italy Lineup Prediction:

🔺 Switzerland (3-4-1-2): Yann Sommer, Nico Elvedi, Fabian Schar, Manuel Akanji, Kevin Mbabu, Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka, Ricardo Rodriguez, Xherdan Shaqiri, Breel Embolo, Mario Gavranovic

🔺 Italy (4-3-3): Gianluigi Donnarumma, Alessandro Florenzi, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Spinazzola, Nicolo Barella, Jorginho, Manuel Locatelli, Domenico Berardi, Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne

✅ Switzerland vs Italy Score Prediction: 1-2
