Italy and Wales will go head-to-head for first place in Group A when they meet at the Stadio Olimpico in Sunday’s Euro 2020 clash.
The Azzurri are already through to the knockout stages after taking six points from their opening two matches, seeing off both Turkey and Switzerland by emphatic 3-0 scorelines.

Those results have extended their winning streak in all competitions to 10 in a row, and they are priced at 9/20 (1.45) with bet365 to make it 11 by coming out on top here.
Rob Page’s men effectively booked their place in the knockout stages with an impressive 2-0 victory over Turkey last time out and can be backed at 7/1 (8.00) to go through in top spot by pulling off a shock win in Rome.
None of the nine previous encounters between this duo have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them cancelling each other out in this one.
Italy vs Wales Team News
Giorgio Chiellini is unlikely to feature after coming off injured against Switzerland, with Alessandro Florenzi, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Marco Verrati also doubtful.
The guests are likely to stick with the same line-up that proved so successful against Turkey, with Kieffer Moore continuing to lead the line in attack.
Italy vs Wales Preview
Although on a high after the impressive victory in Baku that brought back memories of the glorious Euro 2016 campaign, the Dragons will know that they now face a significant step up in terms of opposition.
Roberto Mancini’s side has been arguably the most impressive outfit in the competition so far, looking well drilled tactically and full of both skill and endeavour.
While they therefore face a tough challenge to get a result, the Welsh will at least back themselves to hold firm considering they have conceded just five first-half goals in their last 21 fixtures in all competitions.
Italy vs Wales Tips and Predictions
With Italy having scored five of their six goals so far after half-time, odds of 11/10 (2.10) look generous on the majority of the action taking place after the break for their fifth game in six.
