Belgium v Italy
Italy and Belgium will get their Euro 2016 campaigns underway when they meet on Monday night at the Stade de Lyon. The Red Devils of Belgium are in search of their first competitive win over Italy since 1972.
The two sides met at the 2000 edition, which Belgium co-hosted. The Azzurri won 2-0, with Belgium coach Marc Wilmots and Italy boss Antonio Conte both playing in the match.
Both nations qualified for the France showpiece as winners of their qualifying groups, both with seven wins from ten matches. Belgium, however, managed to scored 24 goals compared to Italy’s 16.
Italy kept shut-outs in both of their warm-up matches, beating Finland and Scotland 2-0 and 1-0 respectively. They were, however, thrashed 4-1 by Germany back in March.
Conte is expected to field a familiar 3-5-2 formation, with Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian and Emanuele Giaccherini operating as wing-backs. Southampton’s Graziano Pelle scored 3 goals in qualifying and should start up front alongside Inter Milan’s Eder.
