Italy will look to pick up a win over Switzerland when the two sides meet in the World Cup qualifiers this week. 

The two sides will meet on the 12th of November at 19:45 pm BST.

Italy are at the top of their group but they are level on points with Switzerland. The visitors will be looking to pick up a win here and overtake the European champions in the standings. 

The home side have not been at their best in their recent outings and they will need to improve in order get a good result here. Switzerland, on the other hand, are on an unbeaten run right now and they will fancy pulling off an upset here.

Italy vs Switzerland prediction

Italy are undoubtedly the better team on paper and it will be interesting to see if they can grind out a win. Switzerland are no pushovers and they will give the Italians a run for their money. 

That said, Italy are undefeated in their last seven matches against Switzerland in all competitions. They have also kept a clean sheet in six of their last seven World Cup matches. A narrow win for the home side is on the cards here. 

Prediction: Italy win.
