THE TEAM NEWS

LIECHTENSTEIN

  • Liechtenstein sit at the bottom of EURO 2020 qualifying Group J with only two points from their seven matches played so far and are just playing for pride.
  • Although they do only have two points they are actually unbeaten in their last two matches having drawn against Greece in September and more recently against Armenia on Saturday when they came back from 1-0 down to level the match courtesy of a goal from Yanik Frick, the eldest son of Liechtenstein's record goalscorer Mario Frick.
  • Liechtenstein were defeated 6-0 by Italy when the two nations met in March and the Italian’s won 4-0 and 5-0 in their two meetings during the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.

ITALY

  • Italy confirmed their qualification for EURO 2020 with a 2-0 victory against Greece on Saturday with a goal each from Jorginho and Federico Bernardeschi giving them a seventh consecutive victory in Group J.
  • The win against Greece was their eighth in a row overall and means Roberto Mancini is one win away from equalling the all-time record of nine consecutive Italy victories, set by Vittorio Pozzo in the 1930’s.
  • A couple of changes will need to be made from the win against Greece with Inter defender Danilo D’Ambrosio missing out due a foot injury. Federico Chiesa, who limped off in the first half, is also expected to miss out but these changes are not to important due to the standard of opposition.

THE PREDICTION

Italy have already qualified for EURO 2020 having won all seven of their qualifying matches so far which includes a 6-0 thrashing of Liechtenstein when they met in Parma back in March. They should still be motivated enough to keep their winning run intact and are unlikely to slip up against the minnows of Group J. Whilst they might not match their tally of six goals in the reverse fixture this should still be a comfortable enough victory for the Azzuri.
