Italy are one of just three teams in the 2020 UEFA Euro qualifiers to have played five matches and won them all, according to UEFA.com, and they have a chance to hit 6-0 Sunday. But they face their biggest threat so far when they travel to Finland to take on the team that sits just three points off of Italy’s pace in 2nd place in Group J. Though Italy took the home fixture 2-0 back in March, manager Markku Kanerva has led his team to four consecutive wins since that defeat, without conceding a single goal, a streak they hope to continue in the game that will stream live from Finland.

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini is the most notable injury scratch for Italy.
