Italy Preview – Will the Italians round off their preparations with a win?

It might been 12 months later than originally planned but there is just over a week to go before Euro 2020 kicks off and Roberto Mancini’s men will play Turkey in the opening game in Rome a week on Friday. It means this will be their last match before that and Mancini will be hoping to go into that game on a high after confirming his squad earlier in the week.

Italy will also play Switzerland and Wales in their section and although favourites to progress into the knockout stages as winners of their group, it will be one that poses them questions.

The Italians missed out on the World Cup in Russia three years ago so these finals will have felt like a long time coming. It will also be their first under Mancini and they could barely be in better form. The 7-0 win over San Marino last week was their seventh straight win and they have not conceded in any of them. They’re also unbeaten in their last 26 games so confidence could not be better.

As well as being Mancini’s first time at a major championships it will be the same for a number of their players who have been part of the rejuvenation of the national team in the last couple of years.

Czech Republic Preview – Can the Czech Republic pull of a surprise result to build confidence ahead of the Euros?

The Czech Republic are also bound for Euro 2020 where they well compete in a group along with Scotland, Croatia and England. They many not be favourites like their opponents but there are promising signs with this group and they may be a team to keep an eye on. The Czechs finished second in their qualification group behind England and defeated that opponent 2-1 at home, so they are dangerous.

With their campaign starting later, Jaroslav Silhavy’s men will take in another friendly game when facing Albania on Tuesday. They’ll then make the trip to Glasgow for the match against Scotland.

It’s been a mixed bag of results for Czech Republic lately with a win, draw and loss to start their World Cup qualification. They did hold Belgium to a 1-1 draw at home, again showing their ability to compete against the best teams in the world.

West Ham duo Toma Soucek and Vladimir Coufal will be leading players for the team and having both came from Slavia Prague will be joined by a number of that club’s current players who have done so well in recent years.

Italy vs Czech Republic Betting Advice

In a week’s time it will be the real thing for Italy but Mancini will be determined to go into that game on the back of a win and extend their winning run to eight games. This will be the Czech’s first game since playing Wales at the end of March so it will be used – along with Tuesday’s game – to find the cohesion and intensity required to hit the ground running when the competitive stuff begins for them.


Key Facts – Italy vs Czech Republic Betting Tip

  • Italy travel to Rome after this game for the first match of Euro 2020, taking on Turkey
