Almost two months on from that glorious night at Wembley that saw Italy crowned European Champions, the Azzurri return to World Cup qualification action as they host Bulgaria in Florence. Whilst the crowd will no doubt still be in party mood, Roberto Mancini’s side will want to establish they place firmly at the top of Group C with Switzerland only three points behind them. Unbeaten in 34 matches, victory here would see Italy tie the all-time international record of 35 games without defeat. Such a carrot should ensure no complacency on the part of the home side and when taking into account their momentum, team structure under Mancini and superior all-round players compared to their opponents, an Italy win by at least two clear goals has to be favoured.
