Match status: 2020 UEFA Nations League
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence)
Interestingly, these two sides were pitted alongside one another in Group J of the EURO 2020 qualifiers back in 2018. It’s a bit of a coincidence seeing them thrown in the same hat for the second edition of the newly-incepted Nations League.

Blowing everyone out of the water, Italy steamrolled their way to the top of their EURO qualifying group in impeccable fashion. Having won all ten of their games, Gli Azzurri sit pretty at the summit, a whopping 17 points clear of fourth-placed Bosnia.

With acquaintances set to be renewed in this season’s Nations League tournament, expect an enthralling game of football between these top European sides. Surely, both sides will be seeking a winning start to bolster their chances of topping the pack.

Italy vs Bosnia & Herzegovina Team News

Since narrowly missing out on the 2018 World Cup showdown in Russia, Italy have slowly crawled back to the pinnacle of international football. Sending shockwaves around the footballing world, Gli Azzurri failed to make it to Russia, as minnows like Iceland made their WC bow.

Looking to put their woes behind them, the Blues could only pile on the misery with another disappointing outing in the inaugural Nations League, finishing behind eventual champions Portugal. They had been horrific, managing just one win from their four fixtures.

Now, Italy are in unbelievable form, securing positive results in every single game they have played in recent times. Roberto Mancini has already made known his intentions of bringing glory back to his country with a successful Nations League outing this term.

Impressively, Gli Azzurri are currently on a brilliant 11-game winning streak – a new European record. They will fancy their chances of extending that imperious run to twelve on the bounce with victory over Bosnia on Friday.

Handed a rather easy EURO qualifying group alongside Bosnia, Finland, Greece and Armenia, the Blues could not have asked for a more favorable cluster. The Italians made it 10 wins from 10, hitting the target 37 times and conceding just four down the other end of the pitch.

With Bosnia & Herzegovina providing Roberto Mancini’s men with their sternest test, Italy rose to the occasion, recording victories in their double-header versus the Dragons. With Insigne and Belotti spearheading the attack, Italy strolled to success in both games.

Dusan Bajevic and his boys will not have fond memories of Italy, as the injuries from those two defeats remain fresh. However, the Dragons have every reason to be optimistic ahead of this clash, as they look to make history in this tournament.

Having toppled Group B3 last time out, they gained promotion to the elite League A, where they will be taking on a couple of European heavyweights. To stand any chances in this deadly pack, the Golden Lilies will need to record a positive result against Italy in this opening fixture.
