Italy had their unbeaten streak broken by Belgium in a 3-1 defeat last week. To bounce back, they’ll attempt to end Romania’s own unbeaten run.
Italy scored three minutes into their friendly four days ago, but top-ranked Belgium roared back to hand the Azzurri their first loss in 12 games. Now they face off against Romania, who qualified for EURO via Group F and have gone 14 matches without a loss.
Romania may have advanced to next summer’s tournament, but today will be a real test of where they stand with Europe’s elite. They qualified from one of the tournaments weakest groups, finishing behind group leader Northern Ireland.
