Azzurri’s Biscotto Fear

Denmark and Sweden played out each other in a 2-2 draw in the last edition of Euro 2004 to eliminate the Italians on the last matchday of the group stage and the Italians are fearing a similar situation tonight. These are the probable formations for the other game between Holland and Romania which will decide whether Italy will go through or not.

Van der Sar, Robben, Van Persie and Huntelaar will need to be on fire as the Italians are pushing forward to support the Oranje on the final matchday.
