Belgium and Italy meet Monday for their opening match in Euro 2016.

The two squads are joined by Sweden and Ireland in Group C. 

Belgium, which comes into the tournament ranked second in the world, is a favorite to advance from the group into the knockout rounds. Belgium is widely considered one of the top teams in the tournament, led by English Premier League stars like Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku. 

Italy is currently the No. 12 team in the world and is looking for its first major championship since winning the World Cup in 2006. Italy made a surprise run to the Euro 2012 final, where it fell to Spain.
