Finland vs Italy, UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifiers Live Streaming: The top two sides of Group J – Italy and Finland clash at the Tampere Stadium for the battle of supremacy. 2006 World Champions Italy are currently leading Finland by 3 points, but both these nations have successfully maintained their gap with rest of the pack. Their encounter tonight would provide an end to a string of one-sided games that have been taking place in the group. The Italians missed out on the 2018 World Cup and have ever since worked extremely hard to get back to their previous best. Meanwhile, if you are searching for FIN vs ITA (Finland vs Italy) live streaming and live telecast in India, you will find all the relevant information below.
Finland playing at home should play a more attacking brand of football, unlike the defensive tactics they set up in their last encounter with Italy. Striker Teemu Pukki has been making waves in the English Premier League and should line-up alongside Jasse Tuominen in a 4-4-2 formation. Glen Kamara is the workhorse in midfield for the hosts, and he will have to put in a real shift to contain the Azzurri. Uncapped defender Niko Markkula could be handed his first-team debut at the back after some impressive performances at club level.
Marco Verratti, the heartbeat of the Italian team, misses the game after picking up his third yellow card of the Qualifiers against Armenia. Giorgio Chiellini is out with a long term injury, and his place in the team goes to Alessio Romagnoli. Lorenzo Pellegrini will start in midfield in place of the suspended Verratti and should have Chelsea midfielder Jorginho for company. Andrea Belotti scored a brace in the last game and will be confident of adding to his tally. Federico Chiesa and Juventus man Federico Bernardeschi make up the attacking three for the visitors.
