Italy vs Austria Match Preview and Team News
Italy ranks high among the most impressive teams at Euro 2020 so far, and after winning all their matches in Group A, they clash with Austria in the second round. Austria managed a second-place finish in Group C with wins over Ukraine and North Macedonia. Italy has racked up impressive numbers going to this game; they won all their group games with clean sheets, scoring seven goals. They had already qualified for this stage when they got to play Wales in the final group game, and the 1-0 win there was their 11th straight win and a clean sheet. They’ve conceded just one goal in their last 15 matches and are unbeaten in 30 games. No other team currently at the tournament has such numbers, which easily makes Italy strong favorites in the competition. Jorginho is an excellent defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it is not easy to take the ball away from him. He plays excellently for Chelsea and performs well on penalties. Domenico Berardi creates a lot of problems for the opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles.
Austria didn’t have it all smooth in their run for the second-round ticket. After beating North Macedonia in the opening Group C game, they fell to the Netherlands and needed a win over Ukraine in the final group game. They got it but in very nervy conditions as Ukraine was also pushing for the same. Austria hasn’t had a run as strong as Italy’s; they have three losses and two wins in their last six matches. They have failed to score in four of the previous six games, and apart from the 3-1 win over North Macedonia, they haven’t achieved more than a goal in their last six matches. Austria could miss the services of Christoph Baumgartner, who scored the only goal against Ukraine. Konrad Laimer plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Sasa Kalajdzic is the engine of this team, he goes through the defense of the opponent like a fast train, he has excellent ball control, he can be satisfied with his games. Many clubs are interested in signing this guy.
