Italy vs Switzerland build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

After the national distress of failing to make the 2018 World Cup, Italy have bounced back with braggadocio under Mancini, looking like Gli Azzurri of old and seemingly on a mission to banish the ghosts of three years ago. The dismantling of Turkey has set the tone, and they will look to follow up against Switzerland.

Vladimir Petkovic’s men enter matchday two with a point on the board and looking to stay hot on Italy’s heels. A win for Switzerland would blow Group A wide open, but defeat could see Mancini’s side leave the rest in the dust, placing a huge emphasis on this showdown in the Eternal City.

  • Italy (vs Turkey): Donnarumma; Florenzi*, Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Locatelli; Berardi, Insigne, Immobile.
  • Switzerland (vs Wales): Sommer; Elvedi, Schar, Akanji; Mbabu, Freuler, Xhaka, Rodriguez; Shaqiri, Seferovic, Embolo.

Alessandro Florenzi has sustained a calf injury and is now a major doubt for the Switzerland game, opening the door for Giovanni Di Lorenzo to deputise in the PSG player’s absence. Switzerland meanwhile came through their curtain-raiser unscathed.

Players to watch:

  • Italy: It was a one-sided affair in Rome on Friday, with Italy enjoying the lion’s share of possession (64%) and limiting Turkey to just three shots, none of which were on target, giving Gianluigi Donnarumma a comfortable introduction to tournament football. Part of that success can be largely attributed to Italy’s midfield trident, consisting of Jorginho, Manuel Locatelli and Nicolo Barella, the latter of whom produced a season masterclass as Inter sealed the Scudetto. There is something of a young Luka Modric in the way Barella surges up the turf with precision and elegance, gracefully connecting the dots and linking up with Mancini’s front three. Alongside the tempo-setting exploits of Jorginho and Serie A pass master Locatelli, Barella has authority and confidence to flourish as a mezzala, exploiting the half space and playing laterally rather than horizontally. He is Italy’s hub, their portal to the final third, and Switzerland must be wary of his ability to link.
  • Switzerland: So, that places an emphasis on Remo Freuler to get a foothold in the middle of the pitch. It could be argued that this game will be decided in the midfield battle, and Switzerland can take comfort knowing they have a player capable of matching Barella and Co in the centre circle. Freuler performs similar heroics for Atalanta in Italy and will be well-acquainted with Mancini’s midfield, giving him an insight into the way they operate and like to hog the ball. If Switzerland are to avoid the mistakes Turkey made and put up a more threatening display, then Freuler’s ability to break up play and disrupt the passing rhythm of Italy will be key to that end.
