Read Blaugranagram’s live commentary of Belgium vs. Italy, the second match of the EURO 2020 quarter-finals.
One of the favorites to win the tournament, Belgium, will be facing the dark horses, Italy, in the quarter-finals tonight. As things currently stand, the teams seem quite even. Italy had a lot of work with Austria in the round of 16, while Belgium barely beat Portugal with a very unconvincing display. Both teams pride themselves in having a defense that is tough to beat and some great attacking options. Midfield is where Italy seems to be stronger. All in all, we are in for a ride.
Belgium XI: Courtois; Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Vertonghen; Meunier, Tielemans, Witsel, Thorgan Hazard; Doku, Lukaku, De Bruyne.
Italy XI: Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne.
