Watch Italy vs Switzerland Live Match and Goal Highlights

Italy heads into Friday’s crunch visit of Switzerland with its World Cup hopes still in the balance, as the newly crowned European champion aims to definitively banish the ghosts of its disastrous 2018 qualifying campaign.

Still on a high from its triumph at Euro 2020, Italy leads Group C on goal difference from the Swiss, with the pair battling for a single guaranteed place in next year’s tournament in Qatar.

Roberto Mancini took control of the Azzurri in the toxic aftermath of the team’s failure to make the last World Cup in Russia, the first time the Italians had missed out on a place in six decades, and was well aware of the significance of making it this time around.

The two nations are currently neck-and-neck at the top of Group C, with the Azzurri ahead thanks to a goal difference of +11 compared to the Swiss +9.

Both have had to deal with numerous injury problems going into the big game and nothing will be decided tomorrow night, because it all goes down to the final games.

In Italy’s case, that is a trip to Northern Ireland, while Murat Yakin’s men host Bulgaria.
