Recommended Italy vs Switzerland betting tips
3-0 Italy win. Italy were the 3-0 winners the last time these nations faced each other in a major tournament. They met in the final game in Group 2 of the 1962 World Cup to decide who would finish the tournament as the groupâs bottom-placed side. Italyâs victory wasnât enough to see them progress to the knockout stages but at least they finished above neighbours Switzerland. A repeat of this 3-0 score on Wednesday is available at odds of 11/1.
1-1 draw. It is over 11 years since these nations last faced each other. On that occasion, the sides played out a 1-1 draw in an international friendly. A repeat of this score on Wednesday is available at odds of 7/1.
4-1 Switzerland win. Switzerland have won 2 of the 3 matches between these nations in major tournaments. Their last victory was a 4-1 win in the 1954 World Cup. You can back them at 200/1 for the same scoreline here on Wednesday.
Under 2.5 goals. These sides have faced each other 20 times in the last 50 years. Of those 20 matches, 17 ended with under 2.5 goals scored. You can back another low scoring game here on Wednesday with odds of 4/6 for under 2.5 goals.
Ciro Immobile to score anytime.Â Immobile is the top goalscorer of the current crop of Italians with 14 goals in his 47 caps. The 31-year-old got off the mark in Euro 2020 with the 2nd goal in a 3-0 win in the opening match against Turkey. Immobile is the 15/4 favourite to score the gameâs opener on Wednesday. Or 13/10 to bag a goal at any time during the game against Switzerland.

Italy vs Switzerland betting tips: Match preview
Gli Azzurriâs tournament opener victory over Turkey has propelled them into consideration as one of the favourites to win the competition.
Did their very organised, tactical high press make one of the competitions dark horses look ordinary? Or did they simply batter a Turkey that failed to turn up for the tournament in the way many had hoped they would?
Either way, you can only beat what is in front of you and the Italians certainly did that. Although, it wasnât until half-time that they got going.
It was noticeable at halftime that almost every attack of Italy was coming doing their left flank. Leonardo Spinazzola particularly impressed and deservedly won the man of the match after 90 minutes of dominating that entire flank for Italy.
The contrast to Italyâs right flank in the first half was staggering. Alessandro Florenzi wasnât really offering any width or penetration and Giovanni Di Lorenzo was introduced at half-time. Although, it is rumoured that a minor calf problem was the actual reason for Florenziâs withdrawal.
The difference was staggering, with the runs of Giovanni Di Lorenzo paying immediate dividends, with Italy getting in behind Turkey down their right for the first time inside a minute of the restart. Suddenly, with decent width on both flanks, Turkey looked stretched horizontally and the Italian attackers were able to find space to exploit with ease.
Switzerland: A tougher opponent than Turkey?
Whether the same approach will be as successful against Switzerland remains to be seen. The Swiss were very successful in 2020 of being difficult to beat against top sides. Their 4 competitive matches in Group 4 of the Nations League against Germany and Spain produced 3 score draws and a narrow 1-0 defeat in Spain.
In the final 2 matches, a 3-3 draw with Germany and a 1-1 draw with Spain, Vladimir Petkovic used the same 3-4-1-2 formation that he started the tournament with against Wales.
While a lot of football is analysed on the result, Petkovic will likely look at the expected goals of 2.19 to 0.43 in their favour and believe his system succeeded in denying quality opportunities to Wales while creating several of their own at the other end.
Ultimately, had Haris Seferovic had a better performance on the ball, Switzerland could have won the match comfortably. As well as missing Switzerlandâs biggest chance, he had 3 other shots and managed to miss the target with all of them.
He also completed just 61% of his passes, which 20% less than any other Swiss player including the goalkeeper. The Swiss forwards likely see nowhere near as much of the ball against Italy on Wednesday and therefore the few times they receive it, they will need to keep possession of it better than this.
Italyâs form and depth of quality in their squad should they wish to rotate, coupled with Switzerlandâs wastefulness in front of goal would all suggest this could be a comfortable win for the Blues. Therefore, we are opting for a 2-0 win for Italy against their neighbours.
Italy team news vs Switzerland
Roberto Manciniâs side pressed from the front right until the end of the match against Turkey. He may look to keep his players fresh with some rotation here. Federico Chiesa, Andrea Belotti and Federico Bernardeschi will all be hoping to benefit should he opt to do so.
Jorginho, Nicolo Barella and Leonardo Spinazzola all impressed while playing the full 90 minutes against Turkey. Should any need a well-earned rest, Marco Verratti or Bryan Cristante would be most likely to come into midfield with Emerson Palmieri able to replace man of the match, Spinazzola, at left-back.
Giovanni Di Lorenzo is expected to come in at right-back to replace Alessandro Florenzi, who was withdrawn at half-time with a calf injury.

Switzerland team news vs Italy
With no injury concerns or COVID-19 outbreaks to deal with, Vladimir Petkovic is expected to stick with largely the same XI that started the match against Wales.
Denis Zakaria could come into midfield to offer fresh legs in place of either Remo Freuler or Granit Xhaka. Alternatively, he could replace Xherdan Shaqiri to create a flat 3-5-2 which is the change Petkovic made after they scored the opener against Wales.
Mario Gavranovic may also be given the chance from the start after Haris Seferovic squandered a bunch of chances in their opening match.
