Italy Preview – Will the European champions get a home win?

Italy have also had a tough 2022-23 Nations League campaign. Gli Azzurri sit third in League A, Group 3 with five points to their name. The Italians, who failed to qualify for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup, have won one, lost one and drawn two.

Italy’s competition started with a 1-1 draw with Germany in Bologna before beating Hungary in Cesena in game two. However, they have taken just one point from the following two. They battled hard to draw 0-0 with England in Wolverhampton, but Roberto Mancini’s side were poor in a 5-2 defeat to Germany in Monchengladbach last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1616 GMT, Thursday 22 September)

Italy can still reach the Nations League finals, but they need to see off the English on Friday before focussing on their final group game against the Hungarians in Budapest.

England Preview – Can the Three Lions bounce back from Hungary embarrassment?

By their high standards, England have had a pretty miserable Nations League campaign up to now. The Three Lions, who reached the UEFA Euro 2020 final last year, have drawn two and lost two of their four matches.

England were humbled by Hungary in their previous Nations League game back in June, and Southgate’s side certainly owe their fans a performance in this one. The English lost 4-0 at Molineux Stadium, which was their biggest home defeat since 1928.

Southgate’s boys will want to finish a tough campaign on a high as they gear up for the World Cup in Qatar. After facing the Italians in Milan on Friday, they go up against old foes Germany at Wembley Stadium in the final game of the group on Monday night.


Italy vs England Betting Advice

Despite plenty of quality in terms of players in both ranks, the reverse meeting between these two at Molineux was a pretty drab affair. Both teams lacked a cutting edge in the 0-0 stalemate.

That was the first meeting since the Euro 2020 final, which the Italians won on penalties at Wembley.


Key Facts – Italy vs England Betting Tip

  • Italy have picked up just one win thus far
  • The Italians failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup
  • England have yet to win a Nations League game this year


After the woeful showing against Hungary last time out, England will be desperate to bounce back with a positive result here. We are backing the away team to pick up a point. The draw and under 2.5 goals is available at 11/4 with bet365.

Harry Kane has started the season in red-hot form, scoring six goals in seven Premier League appearances for Tottenham Hotspur. Back Kane to score anytime in the San Siro this Friday.
