A fight to qualify for the UEFA Euro Cup 2020 begins as Italy hosts Finland in what will be either team’s first game of qualifiers on Saturday.
Italy are former champions of the FIFA World Cup, and are still trying out things to make their return to the international scene. Even though the country missed out on qualifying for the last edition of the tournament, they still have been relevant in the UEFA Euro Cup regardless. With Roberto Mancini at the helm of the things, the side has not got some new players at their disposal and the deadweight the team carried for years has been done away with.
Meanwhile, Finland are a relatively small side in Europe but doesn’t lack players who can genuinely turn things around. Their star striker Pukki has been absolutely sensational in English Championship, and he will be looking to lead the side to success in these ten games. They are aware of the fact that the team will be underdogs more of than not, and will be playing football without any pressure of expectations.
When and where?
This match is to be played at Friuli Stadium, Udine, Italy. The ground has a capacity of 25,132.
Where to watch Italy vs Finland live?
The clash will take place at 1:15 AM (IST) on March 24th, 2019 and can be streamed live on Sony LIV.
