Italy vs Switzerland Preview and Prediction 2021

Italy vs Switzerland predictions for Wednesday’s Euro 2020 clash in Rome. Italy hope to build on their fantastic opening day win when they host Switzerland in their Euro 2020 clash. Read on for all our free Euro 2020 predictions and betting tips.

Italy have won their last nine games without conceding.

Ciro Immobile has scored in four of his last five appearances for Italy.

Switzerland have failed to win each of their last eight meetings with Italy.

Italy have lost just one of their last 31 internationals

There have been under 2.5 goals in Switzerland’s last five European Championship group games

Azzurri live up to the billing

Italy were heavily backed in the lead up to the start of Euro 2020 and they certainly didn’t disappoint their backers at the Stadio Olimpico on Friday. They controlled the game throughout against Turkey and ran out comfortable 3-0 winners, and I expect a similarly impressive showing against Switzerland on Wednesday.

Once again the Italians will enjoy home advantage as they line up at the Stadio Olimpico and Roberto Mancini’s side will be in high spirits following their opener. They passed their opponents to death on Friday and fully deserved their ninth win to nil in a row.

Switzerland rue missed chances

Switzerland will still be wondering how they didn’t come away with three points in their opener. They controlled the game against Wales in Baku, squandering a host of chances before finally opening the scoring early in the second-half only for Kieffer Moore to grab a somewhat undeserved equaliser.

That ended a run of six wins in a row for Switzerland, but their chances of returning to winning ways look slim. They haven’t beaten Italy since 1993 and while they have only lost half of their eight meetings since then, this Italy side looks like the real deal.

Immobile to shine for Italy

They head into this clash unbeaten in 28 games, with 23 of those ending in victory and an incredible 21 clean sheets. They were one of two teams to qualify for Euro 2020 with a perfect record and it’s hard to see past them here.

I’m backing a straight Italy win, and another clean sheet could be on the cards. Five of those nine wins to nil in a row came by a 2-0 scoreline, and that’s what I’m tipping as a correct score prediction.

Once again, Ciro Immobile makes the cut for our anytime goalscorer predictions. He deservedly found the net against Turkey and has now scored in four of his last five appearances for Italy. He’s coming off the back of a 25-goal season with Lazio and will be a real threat to this Switzerland defence.
