Italy vs Wales Euro 2020 kick-off time, TV channel and live stream info

Italy have emerged as one of the favourites to win Euro 2020 after back-to-back 3-0 wins, with Wales next in the firing line.

Rob Page’s side will be looking to upset the odds and continue their quiet rise after their victory over Turkey, which was rubber-stamped by Connor Roberts in stoppage time despite Gareth Bale’s missed penalty.

The Italians will be looking to see off Wales and record their 30th straight win, as well as continue their run without conceding.

Roberto Mancini has evolved his side and has churned them into the fearful machine which has got many people tipping them for European Championship glory.

Ciro Immobile has fired in two goals in as many games as they become a force to be reckoned with but Bale and co will be hoping to cool their expectations.

Captain Giorgio Chiellini was forced off during their win over Switzerland, but with qualification secured, Mancini may not wish to risk their skipper ahead of further spells on the sideline throughout the tournament.

Midfielder Marco Verratti is in line to make an appearance after he missed their opening two matches.

Prior to their win over Turkey, Wales had no fresh injury concerns and there has been suggestions of rotation ahead of the final group game but they will no doubt be wary of Italy’s firepower, as a heavy defeat and a win for Switzerland could see them slip into third.

How to watch Italy vs Wales

The match will be televised on ITV for free, with kick-off at 5pm BST and coverage starting from 3:55pm.

It will also be streamed live on the ITV Hub.

The Stadio Olimpico will be the setting as it welcomes 25 per cent of its capacity. Wales will be no strangers to the fiery atmosphere after their match against Turkey in a hostile Baku Olympic Stadium.

Who is in charge?

Ovidiu Hategan is the man in the middle for the match at the Stadio Olimpico.

Wales will remember the 40-year-old well as he was in charge for their 1-0 World Cup qualifying win over the Czech Republic.

The Romanian official often officiates in Liga 1 in Romania and last officiated Italy at the last European Championships when they were beaten 1-0 by the Republic of Ireland. A possible omen for Wales.

What has been said?

Italy winger Domenico Berardi told “We have so many options in attack. We must try to give 100% in every game. There’s another important test coming up [against Wales] and we will aim to win that too.”

Wales manager Rob Page said: “We can’t plan for that, if four points is good enough to get through then brilliant.

“If it’s not, we’re already planning for Italy.

“We’ll pick a team and formation to go out against Italy and compete, and get the win. We want to win every game we play, and it’s no different than Sunday.”


Italy – 8/15
