After a disappointing performance in the 2014 World Cup, where they were knocked out of the group stages, Italy will be looking to do well in the 2016 European Championship qualifiers, where they have been placed in Group H alongside Croatia, Norway, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan and Malta.
Looking at the group, Italy's route to the 2016 European Championships finals looks pretty easy, with Croatia being the only team who are likely to give some competition to the Azzurri.
Italy, who were impressive in the 2012 Euros, reaching the final of the competition -- where they eventually suffered an embarrassing 4-0 defeat at the hands of Spain -- have also been looking in fine form of late, beating Netherlands with a convincing 2-0 scoreline.
This game will also be Italy's new head coach Antonio Conte's first competitive fixture since his appointment in August.
The 45-year-old manager, who found a lot of success at Juventus, helping them lift three successive Serie A titles in 2011/12, 2012/13 and 2013/14, is being tipped to do well with Italy as well.
Italy midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini, despite describing Conte as a "hard coach", feels that he will be able to bring out the best in the players.
"Conte is a hard coach and he demands a lot,'' Giaccherini told the Italy football association's official website. "But he brings out the best in players and they give him 110 percent.''
Despite Norway being the underdogs in this fixture, Giaccherini feels that Italy should not underestimate them
"We go into this game as favourites,'' Giaccherini said. "But we will not underestimate Norway. They are a battling side and this was evident in their game against England.''
Norway are certainly not the favourites to win this fixture considering their record against Italy, where they have won only three games out of thirteen.
However, the Norwegian side's performance against England during a friendly fixture at the Wembley Stadium was decent, even though the Three Lions eventually won the game with a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
And Norway coach Per-Mathias Hogmo insists that his side will try to do well against Italy as well.
"I thought there were a lot of positives we can take into the Italy game,'' Hogmo told ESPN. "There is no doubt that Italy are the clear favourites. Historically we have had a lot of good matches with Italy, both in qualification and in final tournaments, so it is going to be very exciting.''
