The top spot in Group A is up for grabs, but Italy and Wales will have an eye on what awaits them at Euro 2020 ahead of their meeting at Stadio Olimpico.

Italy: With one point sufficient to secure the top spot for an Italian side that will aim to deepen the competition, Mancini has confirmed that he intends to turn the team around. Marco Verratti is in line to return to the starting XI after missing the first two games of Euro 2020 with a knee injury. It’s a reminder of the tremendous depth of this team.
“I will ask the team to play as we know. We want to win to finish first in the group,” said Mancini. “This is our third game in ten days, some players are tired, and this might be the only time to keep the team spinning a bit.”

Wales: There may be more reasons for Wales, who have played their first two matches in Azerbaijan, to want to win their squad than other teams. Rather than worrying about playing the draw or securing their ideal opponents, leading Group A would mean Rob Page’s side would play their last 16 games in London, where the Welsh ‘Red Wall’ could roar them. .
“Supporting at home is one thing, but being there is another,” Swansea defender Connor Roberts said.
Italy can change their squad, but their victories against Switzerland and Turkey allowed the bench to add pressure and quality to the game. They should have enough to beat Wales. TAKE: Italy 1 Wales 0
