The 1/8 finals of EURO 2020 are here with us! Italy against Austria! At first sight, the final outcome looks quite predictable but let’s see what is going to happen. The game is set to be played at Wembley Stadium among 65 000 visitors. The atmosphere will be like a real football holiday – a game at almost full capacity. We have never watched a game of such calibre with thousands of fans for more than a year. The official kick-off is set at 20:00 GMT 0.

Impressive Record

We could write only positive stuff about the Italy of Roberto Mancini. We have never seen such a balanced and complete version of Squadra Azzura. The team is still to concede a single goal in the tournament or more threatening (for the opponents) for 11 matches in a row in total! Italy looks like the firm favourite for continuing to the quarter-finals.

Foda Way

The manager of Austria Franco Foda has been highly criticized for the defensive approach he applies. However, all critics down as the Austrian team reached the 1/8 finals of the tournament with 2 wins out of 3 games. We should not underestimate Austria as there are several established and experienced players that could do the difference as Marcel Sabitzer, David Alaba and Marco Arnautovic.
