by | Jun 17, 2021 10:04

Italy are through to the knockout stages of Euro 2020 after two consecutive 3-0 wins, take a look at the possible scenarios for the last 16.

Roberto Mancini’s men have already qualified for the round of 16, as they have collected six points in two games so far.

The 3-0 wins over Turkey and Switzerland mean the Azzurri sit first in Group A and could secure top spot if they avoid defeat against Wales in the third and final round of the group stage.

The opponent in the last 16 will be determined by the final position in the group.

If Italy finish first in Group A

If the Azzurri finish top, they will travel to London to face the team finishing second in Group C on Saturday, June 26.

Group C consists of Austria, the Netherlands, Ukraine and North Macedonia, where Frank de Boer’s Holland currently sit second behind Austria on goal difference.

If Italy finish second in Group A

But Mancini’s men could still end up second, if they lose to Wales in the third leg, and would then face the team finishing second in Group B.

The match will take place in Amsterdam on the same date, and the potential opponents are Belgium, Russia, Finland or Denmark.
