Italy 1-1 Switzerland: all the statsThe numbers to come from yesterday evening’s World Cup qualifying match at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome
Saturday, November 13, 2021
After scoring all of his first six penalties for Italy, Jorginho has missed his last three, two of which were against Switzerland.
Italy have drawn five of their last eight matches (W2, D1), as many as they’d done so in 33 games prior to this.
No Italy player has been involved in more goals than Lorenzo Insigne (14, the same as Ciro Immobile) since Roberto Mancini took charge: six goals and eight assists for the Azzurri playmaker.
Giovanni Di Lorenzo scored his second Italy goal after previously netting against Lithuania in World Cup qualifying in September.
Giovanni Di Lorenzo scored Italy’s first headed goal since October 2020, when Stephan El Shaarawy found the net against Moldova in a friendly.
Italy’s last three goals have arrived from set-pieces, as many as in the previous 26.
Leonardo Bonucci and Jorginho are the two players Roberto Mancini has used the most since he’s been in charge of the National Team: 36 matches each, including yesterday evening’s game.
After eleven consecutive clean sheets, Italy have conceded in eight of their last ten matches.
Italy have conceded two goals during their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign, both of which came in the first half. The other was scored by Bulgaria’s Atanas Iliev in September.
Italy hadn’t conceded a goal from outside the box since November 2019, when Babayan netted for Armenia in EURO 2020 qualifying.
Before Widmer’s finish, Switzerland’s last goal against Italy had come in a friendly in June 2010. Gökhan Inler scored back then, and he also did so from outside the area.
