Women's EURO 2017: Italy vs Russia

Italy have never failed to reach the last eight of a UEFA Women's EURO and are on a run of three consecutive 2-0

wins against Russia in this competition.

They met in the 2009 group stage in Helsinki and goals in the last 13 minutes from Melania Gabbiadini and Tatiana

Zorri took Italy through at Russia's expense in a group topped by Sweden.

Italy and Russia were then drawn together in 2013 qualifying. The Azzurre triumphed 2-0 home and away.

Pamela Conti scored both goals in Italy's home game and Patrizia Panico struck twice in Russia.

Russia did win their two other competitive encounters, 3-1 away and 2-1 at home in 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup

qualifying.

Current Russia coach Elena Fomina played in both matches and scored in the 3-1 victory. She was also involved in

the 2009 group fixture.

Including friendlies, the sides have met nine times with Italy winning six to Russia's three and leading 15-7 on goals.

Their most recent meeting was in December in Brazil, Sara Gama, Valentina Bergamaschi (not in the finals squad)

and Ilaria Mauro on target in a 3-0 Italian success.
