Good night from rome
Welcome to our live coverage of the Euro 2020 group match held in the Olympic Stadium in Italy and Switzerland.
The Azzurri hopes to extend their amazing three-year undefeated record through a victory, thereby qualifying for the round of 16.
However, as the midfielder has not completely gotten rid of a knee injury, coach Roberto Mancini is expected to still be sidelined by Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Villati.
Therefore, it is safe to expect Sassuolo ace Manuel Locatelli to partner with Chelsea’s Jorginho and Inter Milan’s Niccolo Varela again in midfield.
But Mancini may need to make a change in last week’s right-back defeat of Turkey, because Paris Saint-Germain defender Alessandro Florenzi is dealing with calf problems, so Giovanni Dillo of Naples Renzo may replace him.
After the draw with Wales last week, Swiss coach Vladimir Petkovic is also expected to maintain a relatively unchanged lineup.
Petkovic may choose to start Monchengladbach star Dennis Zakaria in midfield to deal with this difficult game.
The Bosnia-Swiss coach also summoned Stuttgart goalkeeper Gregor Kobel to replace the injured Jonas Omlin, who sprained his ankle during training.
Kobel is expected to become Switzerland’s third choice goalkeeper after Jan Sommer and Yvonne Mwogo
