Euro 2020: Three key battles of the Italy vs Wales clash
The Azzurri became the first nation to secure their place in the knockout stages having recorded two 3-0 wins against Turkey and Switzerland in the first two games. Roberto Mancini’s boys will be keen to continue their strong run of form when they take on Rob Page’s Welsh side on Sunday.
On the other hand, Wales head into the game on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Turkey and will need just one point to ensure their place in the knockout stages of the Euros. The Red Dragons picked up their first win of the tournament on Wednesday, when they claimed a 2-0 win over Turkey and prior to that, they were held to an opening-day 1-1 draw by Switzerland last Saturday.
Italy have been the dominant side against Wales over the years. They have picked up seven wins in nine meetings between the two sides, with Wales having picked up two. The most recent faceoff between the two countries was back in 2003 in Euro Qualifying, when Italy cruised to an emphatic 4-0 victory.
Italy – Nicolò Barella
Roberto Mancini is likely to opt for several changes to his starting XI against Wales in order to give some of his key players much needed rest. Star midfielder Nicolò Barella is however likely to retain his spot in the three-man midfield and can potentially be the one to make the difference against Wales.
Wales – Aaron Ramsey
In their 2-0 win over Turkey, star midfielder Aaron Ramsey scored the opening goal and had a brilliant game in the middle of the park. The experienced midfielder could once again turn out to be the player to make the difference as Wales take on mighty Italy.
