UEFA Euro 2020 is back in action this weekend after a brief hiatus as Italy competes Austria on Saturday at Wembley Stadium. Italy were exceptional under Roberto Mancini and have the upper hand in this game.
Austria flattered itself to be wrong at Euro 2020, but managed to defeat Ukraine in the last group game. The Austrians have impressive players in their ranks and will have to play on their own to survive one of the tournament’s surprises this weekend.
Italy, on the other hand, is one of the favorites at Euro 2020 and has exceeded expectations in their group matches. The Azzurri have a balanced squad and their incredible bench strength gives them a clear upper hand in this game.
