Match: Italy vs Bulgaria; FIFA World Cup 2010 Qualification

Date: 9 September 2009 (Wednesday)

Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Turin, Italy

Live on TV: Super Sports 6 TV Channels

Time: 19:50 BST (British Summer Time), 18:50 GMT

UEFA group 8 point table shows that Italy is currently leading the table with 17 points from 7 games with a point of advantage over the second placed Ireland who played a game more than Italy. Third placed Bulgaria is 6-point shy of Italy in the standing. Naturally, Bulgaria’s hopes for a direct qualification will totally fade away if they loses to Italy and in that case, Bulgaria could reach the world cup finals only through play-off stage.

Italy can not be relaxed yet because even though they are leading the point table, a defeat to Bulgaria could see them slip down to the second place from where they have to go through the play-off stage to qualify for next year’s world cup finals in South Africa. Italy has been in good form recently as they won 5 out of their 7 matches in this campaign without suffering any defeat. What is more important is that Italy will be playing in front of home fans against Bulgaria. Naturally, they will have home advantage.

The first meeting between the two teams in the current world cup qualifying campaign ended in a goalless draw. However, this time Italy seems to appear in an attacking mood as coach Marcello Lippi indicated that he would employ three strikers in front of a three-men defense against visiting Bulgaria.

Goal.com reported:

According to Sky Sport Italia, La Nazionale will play in an attack-minded 4-3-3 formation. Italy have not scored in 360 minutes of football, and the coach is eager to stop that statistic from growing any further.

Italy is one of the football powerhouse and they are the reigning world champion. So, it would not go with their status and class, if they fail to qualify for the world cup finals or need to go through the play-off phase to reach the world cup 2010 finals.

A win over Bulgaria would take Italy very close to a direct qualification, and even if they lose the next two qualifying games, they would not miss the second place in the standing, and thus, ensuring at least their participation in the play-off round.

Italy traditionally plays defensive football, but this time they are going into the match with an attacking intent. So, it is pretty much clear how desperate Italy is to win the match.
