Italy go into their second game of Euro 2016 on Friday against Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Sweden in Toulouse. The Azzurri bagged a win in their opening game of the campaign, against one of the strongest teams of Group E, Belgium, while Sweden just managed to record a draw against the Republic of Ireland. 

Another win will lead Antonio Conte's side to the knockout stages of Euro 2016. However, Sweden will not be easy to battle against, and the former Juventus coach is wary of that.

Conte has thus urged his side not to give any room for complacency ahead of their second match. "It was a good performance against Belgium and we made the best start to UEFA Euro 2016, but we've not done anything yet, nor have we already qualified for the last 16, which is our first objective," said the Italian coach to the UEFA website.

"We have our feet firmly on the ground, preparing for tomorrow's [Friday's] game and looking for the win."

One of the key clashes of the match will be between the Italy defence and the Sweden attackers. The likes of Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini will be up against the likes of John Guidetti and Ibrahimovic -- that is where the battles will be the one to watch out for.

Sweden have to win this game to give a proper boost to their campaign in the face of a possible fightback from Belgium, the top-ranked side in UEFA, in their two upcoming group games.

"We have to get more right than we get wrong, for sure. It's wrong to focus on what you shouldn't do, you need to focus on what you can do as a team," said Sweden coach Erik Hamren. "We need to be very effective. We probably won't get many chances so we have to take what we get.

"We expect Italy to have more of the possession. We are going to have to run a lot, but we need to use our heads too," he added.

The two sides met in the European Championship previously in 2004. The result of the match was a 1-1 draw.
