Italien – Wales 1:0 (1:0)
Tore: 1:0 Pessina (38.)
45 .: Half time in Italy!
43.: Not much was missing: Again Verratti is the flank giver, again Pessina taps the ball only briefly. This time, however, he doesn’t quite get it in the spreading step.
39.: TOOOOR for Italy!
Made strong. Verratti takes a short free kick from the left-hand position. Pessina only taps the ball lightly and extends into the far corner.
34.: In the parallel game of Group A, Switzerland is currently doing its best to reach the knockout round as third in the group. In our live ticker of the game against Turkey you get all further information >>>
29.: Italy is approaching the gate. A cross lands at Chiesa, who has to process the ball quickly and cannot complete it in a controlled manner from close range. The ball goes well past the left post. The hit might not have counted anyway because of a hand touch.
27.: That was close! Gunter’s head hits a corner and puts it just over the crossbar in the top left. The best Welsh scene so far and, for the first time, disorder in the Italian back line.
24.: Belotti gets a ball in the barrel and can actually close it himself from an acute angle. Instead, he tries to cross it again. His passport finds no taker and ends up in the gate.
23.: Wales are now at least approaching the opposing penalty area – everything is done through Gareth Bale. But the Italian defensive is at the latest on the edge of the sixteen with at least two defenders at the ball carrier.
17.: Next chance, albeit involuntarily. A long-range shot by the Italians is deflected by a teammate and hits the goal with a train. But Wales goalkeeper Ward can secure the ball.
12.: First smaller opportunity for Italy: Belotti jumps in Gosens-style into a cross from the half-field. But the shot that comes out is too weak and not dangerous. Probably the hit would not have counted anyway because of a narrow offside position.
6.: The claim and the balance of power are immediately clear: The audience whips the Italian team forward, Welsh action is whistled. So far no noteworthy individual actions.
1. Minute: Let’s go! Who will win the group?
5.13pm: The lineups are there. And they could be a great opportunity for Wales. Italy rotates massively. If they win, the Welsh could take the group win. Here is the overview:
- Italy: Donnarumma – Rafael Toloi, Bonucci, Bastoni, Emerson – Jorginho, Pessina, Verratti – Bernardeschi, Belotti, Chiesa
- Wales: Ward – Roberts, Gunter, Rodon, Ampadu, Williams – Morrell, Allen, Ramsey – Bale, James
2:14 p.m .: A small detail shows that Italy can score points at the European Championships mainly through the fast-paced offensive game: The national team has so far provided the fastest player in the tournament. Leonardo Spinazzola reached a top speed of 33.8 km / h, according to UEFA data.
12.13 p.m .: Many eyes will be on Manuel Locatelli today. The Italian is one of the tournament’s discoveries so far. He scored twice against Switzerland. Can he advertise himself again today?
Sunday, 8.56 a.m .: Good Morning! Is Italy still hungry for a lot of goals or are the players already sparing themselves for the round of 16? Or can Wales spoil the group win for the Azzurris with a win? Around 8.45 p.m. we know more.
6.40 p.m .: At the same time as this game, the game between Switzerland and Turkey will take place tomorrow. For these two nations the hope is still alive through the best third party group.
5:53 p.m .: Big cheers from Italy. Marco Verratti finally returns to the last group game after a long injury. Mancini announced on Saturday. “He trained with the team for a few days. He’s fit and on fire, ”said the trainer. It remains to be seen whether he will change his so far successful line-up.
