There is no better time for Italy to beat Croatia for the first time in a competitive game than in tonight's European Championship showdown in Poznan

The Italians take on the Group C leaders needing a win to keep up their hopes of progressing to the next round. Italy held holders Spain to a 1-1 draw in their pool opener while Croatia beat the Republic of Ireland 3-0. “We face a very complicated game,” Italy coach Cesare Prandelli said. “Our aim is to win because I reiterate this is a key match for us.”

The Azzurri go into the encounter at Poznan's Municipal Stadium looking to halt a four-match winless run. Prandelli’s side showed a vast improvement on Sunday against Spain but need to step up their game against Croatia.
