France vs Italy Preview:

The stage is set for the first match of Group D of U21 Euro 2023 between France and Italy. Both teams will be looking to start their campaign off with a win to set the tone for the rest of the tournament. France came flying through the qualifying stage with eight wins and two draws from the ten matches. They only conceded five times while they put the ball in the opposition net thirty-one times. However since then they have had a dip in form winning only one of their last five games. They also lost 4-0 to England during this time. They will be looking to get back to winning ways at the start of this competition which is why this should be an interesting match.

As far as Italy are concerned, they should definitely not be slept on. Paolo Nicolato’s men came through qualifying with seven wins and three draws from the ten matches. They are definitely contenders, particularly on the back of just reaching the U20 World Cup final which unfortunately they lost 1-0 to Uruguay. They had however, put together a three-match winless streak in international friendlies, but they turned their form around and prevailed against Serbia and Ukraine which took place in March leading up to this tournament. Therefore, this should be one of the matches of the group stage.
