Italy vs Switzerland predicted line-ups: Euro 2020 team news ahead of fixture tonight

Italy take on Switzerland in Rome for their Group A match at Euro 2020.

In the opening match of the tournament, Italy comfortably disposed of Turkey with Lorenzo Insigne, Ciro Immobile and an own goal allowing for an easy win.

It was the perfect start for Roberto Mancini’s men, who will eye maximum points against Switzerland.

While they didn’t secure all three points, Switzerland impressed against Wales and were denied the win by a late Kieffer Moore header in a 1-1 draw.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match:

When is it?

The fixture will kick-off at 8pm BST at the Stadio Olimpico.

How can I watch it?

The match is live on ITV1, with coverage starting from 7.15pm BST. It can also be streamed online via ITV Hub.

What is the team news?

The game will likely come too soon for Marco Verratti, who has overcome a knee injury but may not be match fit. Manuel Locatelli, linked with a move to the Premier League, will join Jorginho and Nicolo Barella in midfield. Giovanni Di Lorenzo will start in place of Alessandro Florenzi, who has a calf issue.

Vladimir Petkovic may bring in Denis Zakaria to counter Italy’s strength in midfield. The Swiss also called up goalkeeper Gregor Kobel to replace the injured Jonas Omlin as cover for Yann Sommer.

Predicted line-ups:

Italy: Donnarumma, Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola, Barella, Jorginho, Locatelli, Berardi, Immobile, Insigne

Switzerland: Sommer, Elvedi, Akanji, Schar, Mbabu, Xhaka, Freuler, Rodriguez, Shaqiri, Embolo, Seferovic

Odds:

Italy: 4/7

Draw: 3/1

Switzerland: 11/2

Prediction:

While Italy were dominant in their win over Turkey and are deserved favourites here, don’t rule out a draw as Switzerland can be stubborn. However, I think Italy will have too much. 3-1 Italy.
