Gli Azzurri have a perfect record against the Red and Blacks.

Defending champions Italy kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Albania in a pivotal Group B clash on Saturday in Dortmund.

The Azzurri are aiming to repeat as European kings after their surprise triumph in 2021. Coach Luciano Spalletti has blended the core of that title-winning squad with an injection of promising young talents like Wilfried Gnonto and Sandro Tonali.

Historically, Italy have a perfect record against Albania, winning all four previous encounters. The Azzurri will look to maintain this dominance against an Albanian side making just their second major tournament appearance, led by coach Sylvinho.

Albania, buoyed by the presence of several Serie A players and motivated by recent friendly victories, including a notable 3-1 win over Azerbaijan, aim to upset the odds in a tough group that also features Spain and Croatia.

The Albanians will look to key men like Inter Milan’s Kristjan Asllani and Chelsea striker Armando Broja to help spring an upset in a daunting Group B containing Spain and Croatia. With several players plying their trade in Serie A, Albania will be no pushovers.

For Italy’s veteran centerpieces like captain Gianluigi Donnarumma, Jorginho and Leonardo Bonucci, this match begins their quest to cement a legacy as back-to-back European champions. A winning start is pivotal to negotiating around a difficult group.
