This match marks the fifth encounter between Switzerland and Italy at major international tournaments.

Switzerland won both meetings at the 1954 World Cup, but Italy have since won the last two encounters in major tournaments.

Switzerland’s last victory against Italy dates back to May 1993, with the Italians remaining unbeaten in their recent matchups.

The game will be held at Berlin’s Olympiastadion, a venue where Italy famously won the 2006 World Cup final against France on penalties.

Switzerland enters the knockout stage of the European Championship for the third consecutive time, buoyed by an unbeaten record in Germany during this tournament.

However, Switzerland will miss wing-back Silvan Widmer due to suspension, while Italy will be without wing-back Federico Dimarco due to injury and centre-back Riccardo Calafiori due to suspension.

Kick-off is scheduled for 4:00pm local time.
