Switzerland vs Italy Match Preview and Live Stream

Switzerland have been the underdogs almost every time they’ve played in the big tournaments, but on many occasions, have come out as surprise victors. They have had talented players over the years but have failed to really make a mark when it comes to having a fairytale run in the World Cup or the Euros. They were impressive this summer in the 2020 European championship and would undoubtedly want to build on it.

Italy, on the other hand, are champions in more ways than one. They have conquered the World Cup and the Euros two times each and have never once been a weak team. Schweizer Nati and Azzurri are perhaps the favourites to qualify from Group C and they are both in strong positions to do so. The The two teams have met 58 times in the past, with Switzerland winning just 7 times and Italy, 29. Italy are also undefeated vs the Swiss in 9 games and last lost in a FIFA WCQ game in 1993.
