Ace Football previews the Group F match between Hungary and Portugal in Euro 2020 and offers betting tips, the best odds, and form guides.
Italy go up against Switzerland at Stadio Olimpico, Rome on Wednesday in the European Championship. Italy bring a ranking of number 7 in the world charts to the table, thus indicating a close match against Switzerland, who look at the Euro 2020 from number 13 in the FIFA world ranking.
Heading into their second match of the tournament, Italy are highly expected to win their group and dream of once again seeing a final at a European Championship.
It has the look of a close battle to get through the group but with their qualifying campaign in mind, Switzerland could pose a threat to most opponents. They usually manage to get out of the group stages, trouble arrives when battling it out in the knock-out round. Booking a place at the Euros perhaps proved a little more exciting than Switzerland dreamed but they proved to have enough quality for 1st place in the qualifiers group.
