      The Azzurri win against Greece and qualify for Euro 2020 three days in advance. A great evening also for Pjanic, who helps Bosnia to victory with a brace. More Bianconeri set to be in action today

      It was another splendid evening of international football for Juventus. Leonardo Bonucci and Federico Bernardeschi have achieved a victory that means Italy's early qualification for Euro 2020. Elsewhere, Miralem Pjanic scored twice in a 4-1 victory for Bosnia and Herzegovina against Finland.

      GREAT ITALY

      There was the Juventus stamp in Italy's all-important victory last night at the Stadio Olimpico. A victory that brings the Azzurri to Euro 2020, with three days in advance and with the first place secured.

      Bonucci took to the field for the full 90 minutes with the captain's armband, with Bernardeschi, who replaced Federico Chiesa at the end of the first half, scored Italy's second goal (after Jorginho's initial penalty kick), which sealed the victory and the qualification of the Azzurri.

      In the same group as Italy, there was an important win for Pjanic's Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Juventus midfielder scored twice in their 4-1 win over Finland to put them back into contention for qualification.

      Elsewhere yesterday, Juan Cuadrado played the full 90 minutes for Colombia in their 0-0 draw against Chile played in Spain.
