Italy Prediction – Can Italy complete 100% record?

The Italians have produced an excellent and flawless Euro 2020 campaign under coach Roberto Mancini as the Azzurri sit top of Group J by a significant 9-point margin ahead of 2nd placed Finland who will be joining Monday night’s hosts into next year’s European Championships.

Italy have won all 9 of their group matches to date and will no doubt be desperate to complete what would be an amazing campaign with a 100% record spanning both home and away matches in Group J, and in turn, along with Belgium, would be the only nation to achieve this in this year’s qualifiers.

The margins of victory have also been impressive under Mancini too as previous incarnations of the Italian national side would have been content with grinding out 1-0 wins, under Mancini, Italy have powered forward and goals have flowed as a result.

Indeed, 7 of Italy’s 9 group matches to date have seen them win along with beating the 2.5 goals mark as well, and having already recorded a 3-1 win away at Armenia, further goals look likely to feature in Monday night’s corresponding clash on home soil.

Armenia Prediction – Can Armenia snatch 3rd place?

It’s been a much more modest Euro 2020 campaign for visitors, Armenia, as they currently occupy 4th place and find themselves 8 points adrift of 2nd placed Finland and a massive 17 points behind Italy, but nevertheless, it’s also been a reasonably successful campaign for Abraham Khashmanyan’s side.

Armenia’s campaign started badly though as they suffered early back-to-back defeats to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Finland which immediately set them on the back foot, but they did manage to bounce back by recording 3 wins from their subsequent 4 matches to set them back on track and a possible tilt at a top two finish.

Wins over Liechtenstein, Greece and Bosnia-Herzegovina were solid results but Armenia were unable to continue their momentum in the closing stages of the group matches as they lost 3 of their last 5 matches with defeats to Italy, Finland and Greece.

The visitors head into this final group match on the back of 3 matches without a win but goals have also featured where Armenia have been concerned as 6 of their 9 matches to date have also resulted in over 2.5 goals being scored.


Key-Facts – Italy vs Armenia

  • Italy still possess an amazing 100% winning record across 9 matches
  • 7 of Italy’s 9 group matches have resulted in a win and over 2.5 goals
  • 6 of Armenia’s 9 matches have also resulted in over 2.5 goals being scored


Betting Tips Verdict

Italy are by far the superior outfit here and a win with over 2.5 goals scored looks to be on the cards in this one.
