Speaking after the match Italy coach Antonio Conte said “We knew it will be a difficult match, playing against the best side is never easy, we have shown what we are capable of, our defense was good and so was our attack, Our player showed passion, hunger and desire to win the game and as a result we got off to a better start”.
Sweden meanwhile managed 1-1 draw against Republic of Ireland. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was especially quiet in that match but his thumping cross forced Clark to put In the back of his own net.
In the last 21 meeting between these sides, Italy have won 9, lost 6 and drawn 6. Italy hasn’t lost to Sweden since 1998, which means Zlatan has never beaten the Azzurri during his playing career. Their last meeting at European championship was in 2004 where Zlatan late goal cancelled out Antonio Cassano opener in 1-1 draw.
Italy Vs Sweden Team News:
Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian was too sloppy against Belgium giving away possession for dangerous counter-attack while he is also believed to be carrying a minor knock, and he will likely to make way for De Sciglio or Roma defender Florenzi. Daniel De Rossi also looked slightly uncomfortable in the first match which means Thiago Motta could replace him while Graziano Pelle didn’t take part in training on Wednesday and is a doubt so Conte could turn to Ciro Immobile.
Sweden doesn’t have any injury concerns and will start with the same starting XI that face against Republic of Ireland in the first match.
Italy Vs Sweden prediction:
Sweden is a one man team and playing against the stubborn defensive side, we expect it will be a difficult match for Zlatan Ibrahimovic side. We expect the match in favor of Italy.
Final prediction: Italy 1-0 Sweden
