EURO 2016 : Belgium vs Italy Match Preview

Published on:

Antonio Conte’s Italian side face Belgium in the EURO 2016’s Group E at the Stade de Lyon in Lyon on Monday evening.

Belgium are ridinh high on the wave of some of the world’s best and youngest talent, and Marc Wilmot’s side were ranked the best in the world, less than a year ago.

While Italy are always one of the best and most feared sides in the world, known for their technicalities and tactics, this might not be the best Italian side of the recent past, but writing an Italian side off is the biggest blunder any opposition can make.

Belgium will be hoping for some magic from captain Eden Hazard after the Chelsea winger showed glimpes of brilliance during the end of the 2015/16 domestic season.

While Italy will be hoping that captain Gianluigi Buffon will be able to hold off any attack that threatens the back of the Italian defense.

Probable line-up: Courtois; Alderweireld, Denayer, Vermaelen, Vertonghen; Nainggolan, Witsel; Mertens, De Bruyne, Hazard; Lukaku.

Probable line-up: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Candreva, Florenzi, De Rossi, Giaccherini, El Shaarawy; Pelle, Eder.
