Italy vs Switzerland Match Preview and Team News
Memories of Italy missing the last World Cup will linger when the European champions get to host Switzerland in the next round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. These two sides are tied in Group C, with 14 points each, with Italy edging Switzerland to the top spot because of the goal difference. Spain ended Italy’s lengthy unbeaten streak in the Nations League finals; it was the first loss in 39 matches, and going to this game, the hosts seem to have lost their defensive solidity. Just one of their last five home matches has produced a clean sheet, and in their previous 10 World Cup qualification matches, they have one loss. At home, in the last five World Cup qualification matches as well, Italy has drawn three, and four of their previous five meetings with Switzerland ended in draws. 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.
Switzerland head to this game unbeaten in 90 minutes in the last eight matches. They have two straight wins heading to this game and will be gunning for a win to make a giant step as far as qualification is concerned. The last time the Swiss tasted defeat, it was against Italy, 3-0 at Euro 2020, which Italy went on to win. Switzerland head to this game not just with a four-match unbeaten run but also four clean sheets. Two of the four matches ended in draws, and Switzerland has only failed to score in three of their last ten matches. In seven of their previous eight matches in World Cup qualifiers, the Swiss have kept clean sheets. Denis Zakaria plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Seferovic is an experienced striker, he plays in Benfica and has a great season. He means a lot to the national team, and he is expected to score more goals and bring joy to his nation.
