Italy and Switzerland will go toe-to-toe in the Round 2 fixture of UEFA Euro 2020.

Roberto Mancini's men had quite a start in this competition, beating the Turks 3-0. Let's see if they can extend their winning streak with the Swiss.

Vladimir Petkovic's team failed to beat Wales and now it needs to fight for victory to get a chance to carry on and qualify to the playoffs.

The game will kick off in Rome at Stadio Olimpico at 10 p.m. Kyiv time. 

Earlier, Munich hosted the closing game of Round 1 of Euro 2020 group stage on Tuesday, as Germany and France crossed their sword on the pitch.

Both teams showed some their world-class performance, playing short passes. However, most of the initiative belonged to Germans who attacked a little more than the French; the latter, in turn, relied on counter-attacks. And the luck was theirs: Lucas Hernandez landed a cross from the left flank, and Mats Hummels could not prevent the ball from hitting the net. 

In the second half, the Germans speeded up but the French defended really good so Hugo Lloris did not have too much work. France actually had decent opportunities to score closer to the endspiel; Karim Benzema eventually used his opportunity but Kylian Mbappe appeared to be in the offside at the time.
