Italy set their new record for consecutive wins (twelve), surpassing the eleven-game streak they achieved under Roberto Mancini in 2019.

Italy set a new record for the number of consecutive matches without losing in all competitions: 31, surpassing 30 under Vittorio Pozzo's management between 1935 and 1939.

Austria’s goal was the first conceded by Italy in 1168 minutes (the last time they’d shipped one was in October 2020 against the Netherlands). They thus fell short of the record of twelve full games in 1974 – that time, though, the Azzurri went 1143 minutes without shipping a goal.

Italy have gone into extra time in six of their last nine knockout games at the European Championship.

Federico Chiesa's finish was Italy's first extra-time goal in eight games at the Euros.

Federico Chiesa scored in a European Championship match 25 years and 12 days after his father Enrico did the same (14 June vs. Czech Republic).

Italy have won all five matches against Austria between the World Cup and the Euros, all by a single goal.

Matteo Pessina has scored four goals with Italy in just 347 minutes played: an average of one goal every 87 minutes.

Leonardo Bonucci has drawn level with Gianluigi Buffon in terms of number of appearances in the knockout stages of the European Championship (six).
