Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy will be the venue for one quarter-final game at Euro 2020 as well as three matches in Group A (sharing duties with Baku’s Olympic Stadium).
Home of Serie A giants Roma and Lazio, Stadio Olimpico has a storied history in football.
It has been the venue for the final of the European Cup/Champions League on four occasions (1977, 1984, 1996 and 2009) as well as hosting the 1980 European Championship final and the 1990 World Cup final.
Along with Parken Stadium, Hampden Park and the Johan Cruyff Arena, Stadio Olimpico represents one of four 20th century stadiums being used.
It’s highly unlikely that Marco Verratti might return to the Italian starting line-up though he has overcome a troubling knee issue. The PSG midfielder has started training but this match might be too soon for him. Another injury doubt for Italy is right-back Alessandro Florenzi who was taken off at half-time in their Euro opener. He has a calf problem and is likely to be replaced by Giovanni Di Lorenzo.
There doesn’t seem to be many problems for Switzerland manager Vladimir Petkovic as far as injury concerns go. Switzerland did call up uncapped goalkeeper Gregor Kobel to replace injured Jonas Omlin in their 26-man squad.
Italy striker Ciro Immobile has scored 92 goals in his last 118 appearances at the Stadio Olimpico since moving to Lazio in 2016 – Immobile or Lorenzo Insigne are looking to become the first players to score in Italy’s first two games at a major tournament (Euros + World Cup) since Christian Vieri at the 2002 World Cup.
Switzerland have drawn each of their last four games at the European Championships – no nation has ever drawn five games in a row in the competition.
