The Azzurri have arguably been the team of the tournament so far, navigating through the group stages with nine points and no goals conceded.
Austria are hoping to create a surprise when they face Italy in the Euro 2020 round of 16 match on Saturday night at Wembley.
While few made them pre-tournament favorites, Roberto Mancini’s side now look like a serious contender to lift this trophy for the first time since 1968.
Having become the very first team to make it through the group stages with three wins and three clean sheets under their belt, they will be confident to see a nation celebrate their very first appearance at this stage.
While impressive in their 1-0 win over Ukraine, Austria will surely struggle to find a way to get past an opposing defense who has now gone 11 games without conceding – having scored just seven goals in 30 meetings since his last defeat.

Matches: Group stage, last 16, semi-finals and final (eight games)
Year Built: 2007
With three Euro 2020 Group D matches organized here, Wembley will host a total of eight Euro 2020 matches, including the round of 16, semi-finals and final.
The London venue was initially only supposed to host the semi-finals and the final, but was awarded four more games following the exclusion of Brussels as the host city and another when Dublin was withdrawn as that host.
Rebuilt in 2007, it is one of the largest football stadiums in the world and the second behind Barcelona’s Camp Nou in terms of the largest arenas in Europe.
Giorgio Chiellini is unlikely to figure after suffering a hamstring injury in the last group game against Wales, while Alessandro Florenzi and Lorenzo Pellegrini are also uncertain.
Konrad Laimer and Christoph Baumgartner will both undergo late fitness tests after injuring against Ukraine.
