The last time the two sides met was on 29th March 2011 in an international friendly match where Italy won by two goals.
Overall, the two teams have met only 8 times in their history of which Italy won six times, drew on one and lost once. This is a wonderful time for the two teams to measure their strength against one another as they meet on Wednesday tenth of October this year at the Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
Based on their performance in their last six games, Ukraine appears like it is a stronger team. It has won four of these matches and drawn in two while Italy has lost two matches, drawn in three and lost one. However, it is important to remember that Italy is ranked ahead of Ukraine by Fifa. Will this raking be a factor in the Match or will History be repeating itself? It is an important aspect to look out for.
