It is a remarkable improvement for Italy, who have managed to score two or more goals in only three of their last 23 fixtures since mid-2017. While their attackers have not delivered in recent years, the Italians continue to dominate in international football with a deadly combination in defense. They have just conceded three goals in their first six Group J qualification games. On the other hand, Greece are having a tough time at the Euro 2020 qualifiers so far. Their 2-0 win against Liechtenstein on Matchday 1 remains their only win in the competition.
