Match status: World Cup Qualification
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma)
After their attempt to qualify for Russia ended in a playoff loss, Italy will commence their qualification campaign with a much-revitalized squad, with new faces looking to make an impression for the European Championship later this summer.

Following their disappointment of narrowly missing out on qualification for the Euros, Northern Ireland will hope to make up by making a strong case in this Group C. With a record of stringing shock results against bigger sides, this makes them an interesting opponent for a potentially entertaining match.

Italy vs Northern Ireland Team News

Italy will head into this clash on the back of a convincing 2-0 win against Bosnia and Herzegovina last November. Clearly on top at Stadion Gbarvica, goals from Torino forward Andrea Belotti and Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi were enough to secure victory for Italy.

As earlier mentioned, the four-times world champions missed out on the grand tournament in 2018 - underlining their period of decline. However, they are back on their feet, in their usual heavyweight stature. In fact, they are billed to participate in the semi-finals of the Nations League next autumn.

Moreover, it's worth mentioning that it took topping a group comprising of Netherlands and Poland to seal a place in the final four of the competition. Roberto Mancini will urge his side to build on this momentum as they seek a return to the upper echelons of the footballing world.

Without any doubt, the Azzuri will be aiming to top their group which includes Switzerland, Lithuania and Bulgaria. And the former Manchester City coach will be charging his side to kick off their campaign with a win against Northern Island.

Meanwhile, Northern Island were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Romania at Windsor Park. With no goals at halftime, it was all to play for in the second period. And Northern Ireland took the bull right by its horn, breaking the deadlock just 10 minutes into second half. However, they allowed Romania to grow into the game, and steal a point, with the visitors cancelling the opener courtesy of Eric Bicfalvi's goal.

This stalemate means Northern Island are winless in 10 consecutive games, albeit they won against Bosnia and Herzegovina through penalty shootout in the Euro qualifiers last October. However, they went on to lose to Slovakia, thereby missing out on the European Championship qualification.

With the 2021 Euros out of the picture, the Green and White Army will be pulling their weight to mount a challenge for qualification for Qatar 2022. Kickstarting this challenge, Ian Baraclough's side will have a daunting task to deal with, when they travel to Italy on Thursday.

Who will win the match?

Italy vs Northern Ireland Predictions

Italy are currently in an outstanding form. In fact, they are unbeaten in their last twenty matches, winning sixteen during this spell. The defensive aspect of their game gives little joy to their opponents, as it is evident in their recent record of six clean sheets in seven games.

Northern Ireland, on the other hand, have failed to keep the opponents out in their last nine matches, and it won't be very much surprising to see them struggle, yet again, against the Italians. Clearly, Italy are huge favorites to win this game, without conceding a single goal.
