ITALY vs SWEDEN – EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP 2016

ITALY vs SWEDEN HEAD-TO-HEAD

Italy have won 10, drawn 6 & lost 6 of their matches against Sweden.

The last Italy vs Sweden match was settled by a Giorgio Chiellini goal. That match was Swedish coach Erik Hamren’s first match in charge of the side.

Italy eliminated Sweden from Euro 2000 with 2-1 win in the group stages. The Swedes had their revenge in Euro 2004, when their 1-1 draw eliminated the Azzurri.

ITALY

Under Antonio Conte, Italy are unbeaten in 11 matches – 8 wins, 3 draws.

In the 34 matches Italy have played at the European Championship finals, they have never scored more than two goals.

Italy have kept three successive clean-sheets. Another one would see them match their best of four clean-sheets during the 2006 World Cup.

Antonio Candreva has played a part in three goals in his last two appearances – 1 goal, 2 assists.

Seven of Italy’s last nine goals against Sweden have come in the first half.

SWEDEN

Sweden have only managed to win three of their last 15 matches at the Euros. There have been 5 draws & 7 losses.

In their 1-1 draw against Republic of Ireland, Sweden did not have a single shot on target.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, like Cristiani Ronaldo, is vying to become the first player to score in 4 different Euros. He has so far scored 6 goals in 11 European Championship appearances.

Seven different players have scored Sweden’s last seven goals. This also includes an own goal.
