Italy vs Wales: Head-To-Head Prediction 

This will be Italy’s real contest against Wales. Azzurri have already bagged their spot in the Round of 16 and most likely Mancini will deploy a much-changed side. Wales just needs a point out of the game to secure qualification from Group A.

However, knowing how dangerous Italy is, Bale and co wouldn't want to lose by a huge margin and keep things tight at the back.
