Italy: Though it took them a while to get going, the opening win was encouraging all around. Italy created 24 shots, 21 more than the Turkish team, dominating from start to finish. Against the Swiss, they can expect more pressure in the middle and a defense that is more challenging to break down. But, they'll still get their chances and should have more than enough to take the points.
Switzerland: The attack has to be sharper. They aren't likely to get the looks on set pieces that they did in the opener, so somebody has to be the creator. Xherdan Shaqiri has the chance to step up here, fueled by surprisingly being subbed off midway through the second half. Can he and Breel Embolo find a connection to help them potentially earn a surprising result? They put just four of their 18 shots on frame against the Welsh, and a similar showing here will see them take zero points.
Italy start quick but the Swiss manage to steal a surprising point from the home side. Pick: Italy 2, Switzerland 1
