Italy-Australia is the third national rugby match test after they played at the beginning of the month against Ireland and Georgia. The match is disputed from 3 pm at the Euganeo Stadium in Padua. Italy comes there one week after Florence's decent victory against Georgia, a citizen who preceded a position in the world's ranking and against which it was important to win to emphasize his superiority in European rugby. However, against Australia will be a completely different game, because it is a team that is even higher in full crisis.
Italy-Australia will be broadcast directly and exclusively by DMAX, Channel 52 in the Digital Soil and 136 in the satellite, starting at 21.15. You can also follow live streaming via the application or DMAX website, accessed from this link.
Australia trained by Michael Cheika experiences one of the most difficult periods in his latest story. In the eleven matches played in 2018 he suffered eight defeats. It's a strange, unpredictable and incessant team that has replaced impressive tournament segments against opponents like New Zealand and Ireland, in recent months, to other extremely negative, which then led to many defeats this year. Italy is in a disadvantage but must try to stay in the match from the first to the last minute to take advantage of possible cases in the opponents. He will still be without his captain Sergio Parisse but will meet the extreme Jayden Hayward, one of the best of this year with Benetton Treviso. The captain will still be Leonardo Ghiraldini.
