The miraculous goal gave Italy victory before Euro 2024. But there are doubts about the performance of the Spalletti team

The current continental champions beat the Bosnians, although they made several serious mistakes on their own field.

There is less than a week until the Italian team’s first match at Euro 2024. Meanwhile, Luciano Spalletti tests the team. This time the current European champions faced the Bosnians in Empoli.

The first moment of the match is a consequence of the “entrance” of Riccardo Calafiori. The Italian national team defender “cut” his own field and passed the ball directly to the opponent’s feet. It was fortunate that Gianluigi Donnarumma saved the hosts after Haris Hajradinovic’s shot into the far corner. But, in general, for such mistakes the coach can receive a serious reprimand in the locker room.

How Italy and Bosnia played their previous matches:

It is true that Italy almost immediately created a decisive moment. But Davide Frattesi never shot and Federico Chiesa, who arrived on time on the rebound, fired at the defender. The goalkeeper for this episode has already been played. And a few minutes later, Frattesi himself wasted another opportunity, this time letting the ball go too far, which goalkeeper Kenan Pirich took advantage of.

The Italians’ performance before the break left a mixed impression. On the one hand, the locals had more possession of the ball and carried out a good positional attack. On the other hand, they had no active pressure. Plus it lacked flavor. However, Italy went into the break in good spirits. And all thanks to Frattesi’s perseverance. The goal turned out to be a sight to behold: Davide volleyed with the inside of his foot. Federico Chiesa made a great shot and Frattesi fired under the crossbar.

The second half was generally calm. Gianluca Scamacca could have scored a couple of times, but the goalkeeper withstood the Europa League winner’s shots. The current level of the Italian team is superior to that of the rival, as the match showed. Although substitute Federico Dimarco frankly “brought it in” in the end, Donnarumma was fine again. Spalletti has a lot to think about before a big tournament, but doubts remain for his team.

The hosts played with 1.77 expected goals, the Bosnians with 0.64. The Italians had the ball 59% of the time, they took 19 shots (six on goal) and the guests six (two on goal). At Euro 2024, Spalletti’s team will play in the same group as Albania, Spain and Croatia. The Italians will play the first match of the tournament on June 15.
