Key Players to Watch Out:
Belgium: With Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard a doubt for this tie, the onus will be on Romelu Lukaku to maintain the quality in the offensive area. The Inter Milan striker had a dry run in front of the goal against Portugal, however looked dangerous in the counterattack every time he had the ball. His performance will play a big factor in this game.
Italy: Italy have plenty of attacking options in their ranks who could impact a game in their own way. But their midfield combination has been the most effective so far. Although, it struggled a bit against Austria in the last game. Mancini could make a change in the line-up re-calling in-form Locatelli in the squad and his performance alongside Jorginho and Barella could be the key factor once again.
Head to Head:
Belgium wins: 4
Italy wins: 14
Last meeting: Italy 2-0 Belgium
Belgium are unbeaten in 12, winning ten of those while Italy haven’t lost since September 2018 and have been triumphant in their previous 12. So considering the current form, this is likely to be an even contest. But with De Bruyne and Hazard doubtful to start the game and their prospects somewhat have been hit. However, they are still a tough nut to crack and Italy will need to put in a strong show to get a result out of this game.
