Italy will take on England in round 5 of UEFA Nations League (League B). The match will take place at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, San Siro (Milan) on Friday, September 23rd. In recent years, the
Italia national team has been a source of diametrical emotions for its fans. Then, “Scuadra Azurra” became the continental champion. There were also failures that made it stronger. The first was the defeat by Switzerland in the dispute over 1st place in World Cup qualifying. The shocker is the defeat of Switzerland in the dispute for 1st place in World Cup qualification. The favorite was eliminated from the dispute to reach the world championship in the first round of the playoffs. Roberto Mancini, however, retained his position. However, the summer proved that he was unable to bring his wards down quickly. They won 2-1 at home after only one victory in four matches against Hungary, the outsider. The asset can also include 0-0 away to England. They also had 1-1 home matches with Germany, and most importantly, a 2-5 away loss.
England seems to ignore the League of Nations. They are distracted by her thoughts about Qatar and their chances. Gareth Southgate’s team raised their expectations. They reached the semi-finals at the World Cup 2018. They lost the title last summer to Italy only by virtue of penalties. While both tournaments were evaluated, many had reasons to criticize the current “three Lions” pragmatic approach. They still hope for a stronger breakthrough in November and December in the UK. England was disappointing in the summer, however. The Hungarians lost both of their fights. Finally, they lost in the field to a nominal outsider — 0-4! Kane and his company couldn’t score to the Italians. Only 1-1 in Germany is considered a good result. There is a risk that you will fly out and remain in 4th. Only a win now can lift us out of this position.
The teams have remained at a draw for the past four head to head matches. This is despite the fact that they had played in a penalty shootout at Euro last year. The score was also 1-1 on three occasions. Bookmakers see the odds of rivals as nearly equal. It’s obvious, however, that Southgate and Mancini’s dispute will not be spectacular. We bet on “less then 2.5 goals”.
Prediction: The match will be scored under 2.5 goals.
