ITA vs SUI Dream11 Teams: Italy are all set for their second game of Euro 2020 as they take on Switzerland at the Stadio Olimpico. The Azzuri are on the back of comfortable 3-0 win versus Turkey and will be eager to build further momentum heading forward. It was an own goal from Demiral, followed up by goals from Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne that bagged maximum points for Italy.
Meanwhile, Switzerland drew their game 1-1 to Wales, and will be disappointed to not walk away with all three points considering the chances they had.
