Italy and Austria will square off against each other tonight (Saturday) at the Wembley Stadium in London with a place in the quarter-final of the UEFA Euro 2020 on the line.
The Azzurri started off with a comfortable 3-0 win over Turkey in Group A and followed it up with a scintillating 3-0 triumph against Switzerland to seal safe passage through to the knockouts.
A much-changed side then clinched a 1-0 victory over Wales in the final group game to become the first side in European Championship history to win all three group stage matches without conceding.
Austria, meanwhile, kicked things off in Group C with a comeback 3-1 win over tournament debutants North Macedonia but were handed a 2-0 defeat by the Netherlands in the subsequent fixture.
A narrow 1-0 triumph over Ukraine in the final group encounter was enough for them to finish second and set up a date with Roberto Mancini’s men on Saturday night.
