Italy Preview – Can Italy resume with a win?

Italy racked up an impressive 15th straight win on the trot in all competitions on their way to winning the European Championship, beating England on penalties and the hosts will be keen to carry their form into these upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Italy sit top of Group C three points above 2nd placed Switzerland and having now been unbeaten in their last 34 matches in all competitions, the Azzurri look well placed to pick up a fourth win on the trot in this upcoming World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria.

Goals could also figure here as Roberto Mancini’s side will be relaxed and raring to go at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Thursday night.

Bulgaria Preview – Can Bulgaria pull off upset?

Back-to-back defeats to the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign has left Bulgaria with a mountain to climb if they’re to secure a top two finish in Group C following losses against Switzerland 3-0 at home and a 2-0 loss at home to tonight’s opponents, Italy.

Bulgaria did manage to hold out for a point in a 0-0 draw away at Northern Ireland in their last qualifier but this has left the visitors five points adrift of 2nd placed Switzerland ahead of this tough trip to Italy on Thursday night.

Bulgaria have failed to win any of their last six World Cup qualifiers and overall results away from home have been poor; the visitors are without an away win from their last 14 outings on the road in all competitions.
