Italy vs Sweden live stream/TV listings: June 17, 2016 UEFA Euro match

June 15, 2016 By Michelle Bonsu
After winning their respective games, Italy and Sweden will square off for their second group stage match at the Stadium de Toulouse on Friday, June 17th. Here are your live TV listings & online streaming options for Italy vs Sweden.

On Friday, two sides will meet for their second group stage game at UEFA Euro 2016. And naturally, both Italy and Sweden will be gunning for all three points. For one team, a win will secure them a spot in the quarter-finals, whilst for the other, they will need a victory in order to guarantee themselves in their first knockout round since the 2004 edition.

Italy

Although they finished as runners-up at Euro 2012, Italy, in their tie against Belgium, were viewed by some as the weaker side. Well, the Azzurri again showed that they are not a team to be dismissed as they overpowered, outplayed, and outclassed Belgium in an entertaining end to end game that had everyone on the edges of their seats.

It was also a very interesting match-up for coaches Antonio Conte and Marc Wilmots. Both men were on the pitch during Italy's Euro 2000 win over the Red Devils, and the ex-Juventus boss now got the better of his former opponent as a tactician 16 years later. Given that Belgium were regarded as Italy's toughest opponent in their quartet, some may feel that Italy's most difficult test is behind them, but they will be coming up against Sweden, who boast one of the top strikers in the world in Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

If history is any precedent, a win for Italy not only will obviously guarantee them a spot in the round of 16, but potentially mean that they just may be able to make a run to the final. Or is it?

16 years ago, when their current manager Conte was with the squad, the Azzurri won all their group stage matches en route to the final. Coincidentally, that tournament was also contested in France. However, the hosts beat them 2-1 on a golden goal to lift their second Euro title. It's also important to note that in 2012, Italy drew their first two games (against Spain and Croatia) and still made it to the final, where they were thrashed 4-0 by Spain.

In terms of personnel, Conte so far has no selection worries, except for goalscorer Graziano Pelle who reportedly picked up a knock during the win over Belgium. However, the powerful Southampton striker should be fit nonetheless to feature for Friday's match.

Sweden

2004. That was the last time Sweden were able to get out of their group, and the Blågult will certainly want to avoid making it a fourth straight exit at this juncture. Unfortunately, their UEFA Euro 2016 campaign has not started off as well as that of upcoming opponent Italy. For large spells of their game against Ireland, Erik Hamren's men were left frustrated as they failed to even muster a single shot on target during the match.

It was also a very disappointing opener for talismanic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Despite seeing his cross turned into the net by Irish defender Ciaran Clark, the 34-year-old missed out on a chance to open his Euro account - something that the second-most prolific goal-scorer in Euro qualifiers will be seeking to do on Friday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic naturally will be the man Italy will be focused on stopping as the two sides clash on Friday

Ibrahimovic, who could also be featuring for Sweden in the upcoming Olympics, is no stranger to Italian football tactics, having played for Italy's three major clubs at varied points during his career. Naturally, as captain and his nation's all-time top goalscorer, he will be the go-to man for Hamren's side as they hope to build up some positive momentum after their disappointing showing versus Ireland.

Like Conte, Hamren has pretty much everyone available, with only Mikael Lustig potentially being in doubt after suffering a knock in the one-all draw with Ireland.
