1 / 7 The Italy national team will be ready for Euro 2016 when they face Belgium at Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
Here are some tips and tactics to help you beat Belgium in the group stage.
2 / 7 Italy’s goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is not only the man to beat in the air but also the one who will have to save the team’s pride at home.

3 / 7 With their hopes of qualifying for Euro 2020 in their grasp, the hosts have been forced to play with an air of caution against Belgium.
The hosts have conceded two goals in their last three Euro 2016 Group D matches, including two in the last two days.
4 / 7 Despite being outclassed in the opening stages, Italy have come through the first four games of Group D to win four out of five.
The first leg of the second round will be played on Sunday at Stadiense on 9 March.
5 / 7 There’s little doubt that Italy will win the match against Belgium in Stadion Olimpo, as they are the favourites for the first spot in the tournament.
However, the home side have shown in recent weeks that they are capable of going on the attack and will take full advantage of the opportunity given to them by Italy’s defensive frailties.
6 / 7 It’s no secret that Italy have the second-best attacking potential in the World Cup after Brazil.
However they need to improve their finishing and defensive discipline to avoid being overwhelmed by the hosts.
7 / 7 Both teams have been criticised for their performances in the first two rounds of Euro 2016.
The result of the first leg at Stadsport in August, however, will tell the true story of how Italy will fare against Belgium on Sunday afternoon.
