ITALY, A QUARTER FINAL
They had to resort to extra time, but Italy beats Austria 2-1 and qualifies for the quarterfinals.
Kalajdzic shoots from outside the area and almost does not find a goal.
Goal goal goal goal goal by Dragovic !!! Austria’s goal goal goal goal goal !!! Corner kicked by Schaub, Kalajdzic dives into the plate and makes it 2-1 with a header.
Double shot by the Austrian midfielder in the mouth of the goal. The 2-1 was already canataba, but his shot has gone high.
The chance of scoring for Austria in Schaub’s shot was very clear, but the Italian goalkeeper responded wonderfully.
The first part of extra time ends with Italy having a double advantage on the scoreboard against Austria. The ‘Azzurra’, now yes, is one step away from the quarterfinals.
Pessina’s goal goal goal goal goal !!! Goal goal goal goal gooooool of Italy !!! Insisgne puts it into the area from the left, the Acerbi fight, and Pessina arrives from behind to make the second. Italy puts land in the middle, which already smells like rooms.
Chiesa’s goal goal goal goal goal !!! Goal goal goal goal gooooool from Italy !!! Spinazzola filters a ball into the area, finds Chiesa heeled on the right, and he, with good control before shooting, shoots Bachmann. Great goal to overtake Italy against Austria.
Spinazzola centers from the left, receives only in the Berardi area and tries a scissors that goes completely wrong.
Arnautovic’s goal goal goal goal goal !!! Austria’s goal goal goal goal goal !!! Head shot at goal assisted by Alaba. Jump the surprise!
Sabitzer shoots from outside the area and the ball hits Bonucci before going for a corner narrowly.
ITALY 0-0 AUSTRIA
Despite being ostensibly closer to the goal than Austria, Italy went into halftime without being able to open the scoring. The clearest occasion was signed by Immobile with a shot that ran into wood.
Spinazzola tries fortune and Bauchmann stretches to star in a very good stop below.
The striker receives about 25 meters from goal, and neither short nor lazy a right hand is removed from his sleeve that, with Bauchmann making the statue, bumps into the wood. About to make 1-0 Italy!
Very his play the one he just starred in by receiving in front of the area and shooting (high) without seeing that he had a better positioned teammate.
Italy’s first serious notice. It ends with a shot from Spinazzola who narrowly missed the goal.
Italy play with Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Acerbi, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne.
Austria play with Bachmann; Lainer, Dragovic, Hinteregger, Alaba; Xaver Schlager, Grillitsch; Laimer, Sabitzer, Baumgartner; Arnautovic.
In football anything can happen, and this starts 0-0, but it is undeniable that Italy is a clear favorite to win against Austria. So say the predictions, although then what has to happen will happen.
The polyvalence of several of its players, such as David Alaba or Laimer, among others, makes that when seeing the ‘eleven’ different tactical dispositions can exist. But taking as a reference the duel against Ukraine, everything indicates that Austria will raise the meeting from a 4-2-3-1. Previously, he has been seen playing with a defense of 3 and it cannot be ruled out that this is the case.
Franco Foda bet for this duel by the same starting team with which he raised the match against Ukraine in which a 1-0 win earned him access to these round of 16.
Pervan (p.), Alexander Schlager (p.), Ulmer, Posch, Lienhart, Ilsanker, Baumgartlinger, Trimmel, Schöpf, Schaub, Kalajdzic, Gregoritsch.
The game is lost Valentino Lazaro, with muscular discomfort.
Franco Foda I bet you Bachmann; Lainer, Dragovic, Hinteregger, Alaba; Xaver Schlager, Grillitsch; Laimer, Sabitzer, Baumgartner; Arnautovic.
Roberto Mancini bet on the 4-3-3 as a tactical drawing, Italy being a very dynamic team, always trying to give amplitude to the game by opening its ends a lot. It is a very good team and wants to show it in this Eurocup.
The main surprise (although it had been commented on) is that Locatellí, one of the great sensations so far from Eurocup, is a substitute in Italy. The reason is that Verratti, who missed the start of the tournament due to injury, is now fully recovered.
Sirigu (p.), Meret (p.), Toloi, Bastoni, Emerson Palmieri, Locatelli, Chiesa, Cristante, Pessina, Belotti, Bernardeschi and Raspadori.
They miss the game Chiellini and Florenzi, with muscular discomfort.
Roberto Mancini goes out with Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Acerbi, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Berardi, Immobile, Insigne.
