Italy vs Austria Overview
Austria will try to accomplish what 30 previous opponents have failed to do against Italy’s national team: defeat the Azzurri in a competitive match.
Italy is a heavy favorite in its Round of 16 matches at Wembley Stadium, as one of the most impressive teams in the Euro 2021 group stage. The Italian men’s team is just one game away from breaking the all-time record for consecutive undefeated matches.
In its first three group matches, Italy put on a show at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Roberto Mancini’s team is shattering the long-held image of Italian soccer as a sophisticated, tactical, and defensive powerhouse. Instead, his team has evolved into an offensive force.
The Italians go vertical and fast, with multiple players sprinting forward at full speed.
