Italy won the first games of the group stage against Northern Ireland 2-0 at home, Bulgaria 2-0 on the road and finally the third game against Lithuania 2-0 on the road. A couple of days ago, on September 2, they drew 1-1 against Bulgaria at home. That game showed that Italy cannot play against a highly defensive team.
The Swiss defense is compact and strong at home. The only game on the road in the qualifiers was against Bulgaria but they knew how to score goals and prevent the home team from scoring more than one goal.
