What do we see in this then?

Another Italian master class or will one the tournament's elite players help the Swedes?

I think Italy to win to nil.

Lots of reasons to make me suspect this may be difficult for Italy.

Not won in the last 7 second games in major tournaments
Zlatan effect (Italy seem strangely over worried about him, probably because of 2004)
Did they over celebrate in the last game and think there work was now done?
Ageing team playing 2nd game this week
Italy may have preferred being outsiders and won't have that luxury this time

So in summary, Italy to win 3-0?

Two nil to Italy, but I think they'll make hard work of it.

With 3 points in the bag already, I'm prepared to wager a small amount that the Azzurri will not be willing to take many chances. Play for the draw and look to score on the break.

In other words, the classic Italian approach since the year dot.

Either a 0-0 boredraw or a scrappy 1-0 to Italy.

Backed Italy pre tournament at 22/1 - thought they played very well against an overrated Belgium team who created nothing.

Actually thought Italy played some of the best football all tournament so far, don't bet on football really but thought evens was generous against a Swedish team who created barely anything against Ireland.

3-0 nil to the Italians. Played well last game and Sweden (being my sweep stake team) have been piss poor. If Conte can get Chelsea playing with the same work ethic they should do well next season.

Sweden need points more than Italy, they are trying to attack, but with limited success. Italy look quite capable of scoring if they get enough space behind the Swedish defence.

HT: 0-0

Has this game been even worse than Germany-Poland? Absolutely nothing has happened

Louis

I think there's a good chance Italy will nick this in the last few minutes.

Sweden don't look like scoring, but they need the win more than Italy.

Italy are looking more and more comfortable.

65 mins: 0-0

I think Ireland will qualify from this group despite it on paper being a tough group.

Ireland will be happy. They'll be hoping this goes some way toward Italy resting a few for the last game (particularly their holy trinity at the back)

Italy have picked up a few yellow cards already, so I'd imagine some rotation is likely
