Italy vs. Switzerland: all the stats

In the last 58 home games, excluding friendlies, Italy are undefeated with 45 wins and 13 draws (last defeat 08/09/1999 against Denmark).

Italy have won their last two matches by a margin of three or more goals, as many as in their previous 94 matches in both the Euros and the World Cup.

At 23 years, 159 days, Manuel Locatelli is the youngest goal scorer at Euro 2020 and the youngest for Italy at a European Championship since June 2012 (Mario Balotelli, 21 years, 321 days).

The Azzurri midfielder found the net with the only shot on target seen in the first half of Italy vs. Switzerland.

Manuel Locatelli scored more goals last night (two) than in his previous 11 games with Italy (one): this brace was also his first for club and country.

Manuel Locatelli is the third player to score a brace for Italy at the Euros: Pierluigi Casiraghi vs. Russia (EURO 1996) and Mario Balotelli vs. Germany (EURO 2012).

Having won all of their last nine games in a row without conceding before last night, Ciro Immobile scored Italy’s 31st consecutive goal without the opposition scoring.

Ciro Immobile has been involved in 13 goals in his last eleven games as part of the Azzurri starting line-up (eight goals, five assists).

Domenico Berardi has scored four goals and provided an assist in his last six games with Italy, having scored just one in his previous seven.

That's 10 clean sheets in a row: the last time the Azzurri had not conceded a goal in 10 consecutive matches was between November 1989 and June 1990.
