Today’s Match Preview

Italy vs Norway, U21 Euro Cup – Matches, Cluj Arena, Romania, Time: 19:45

Needing a victory to ensure their place in the European Under-21 Championship quarter-finals, Italy Under-21s meet the already-eliminated Norway Under-21s on Wednesday.

After hanging on to beat Switzerland at the weekend, the Azzurrini must simply match the Swiss side’s result against Group D leaders France in order to progress; meanwhile, Norway has lost both games so far and will head home after the final whistle in Cluj-Napoca.

Following an agonising 2-1 defeat to France in their opening Euro 2023 match, when the absence of goal-line technology meant a potential last-minute equaliser was not awarded, Italy dusted themselves down and bounced straight back on Sunday.

Beaten Euros finalists in 2013, the Azzurrini have combined two group-stage exits with quarter and semi-final appearances since, but having come through qualifying with seven wins and three draws, Nicolato is expected to lead a gifted squad to this summer’s final in Batumi.

After their Under-20 counterparts recently reached the World Cup final and three Serie A sides fell at the final hurdle in UEFA club competitions, claiming silverware would be greeted with glee along the Italian peninsula. First, though, Nicolato’s boys must see off the challenge of Norway.

Leif Gunnar Smerud’s side has little left to play for in their final group fixture after they failed to hold on to the lead against Switzerland and were beaten, before being edged out by tournament favourites France on Sunday.

Always outsiders to reach the last eight – as they did in 2013 when they ultimately made the semi-finals – Norway had done well to hold off Croatia, Finland, and Austria during qualifying, but a four-game winless streak before heading to Romania perhaps highlighted some deficiencies.

The Norwegians certainly pushed a much-changed France side hard at the weekend, though, and with the pressure now off they may fancy their chances of testing Italy and departing the Euros with at least one point.

A nervy 90 minutes could be in store for Italy, as a relaxed Norway side may return to the form shown in qualifying – and Switzerland will prove no pushovers for France in the other Group D game.

Nonetheless, even a draw may be enough for the Azzurrini to progress to the knockout phase, where few teams will want to face them.
