Italy vs England Betting Tips and Predictions

It’s coming home? Or is it coming (to) Rome? What a final match this could be after what has been a very exciting tournament. We’ll long remember the heroics of Denmark in reaching a semifinal, Switzerland’s great run, beating France and taking Spain to penalties. Belgium and Portugal played some fantastic football early in the tournament and it was a shame that one had to put the other out in the Last 16 with Belgium going on to lose to Italy in the quarter finals.

Italy have been the best side of the tournament, they’ve played some great football and have been a solid team. England have had the luck of the draw and in playing five of their six games at home were only really tested in a 0-0 draw with Scotland and in their semifinal against Denmark where they got a penalty after a dive. Saying that, in their other games they’ve deservedly won and have been the better side. With a home crowd roaring them on they’re the bookies’ favourites to win the games. Let’s find some value in the markets.

Italy vs England Betting Tips and Predictions

From their opening game that saw them beating Turkey 0-3, Italy have looked like a side intent on winning their second European championships. The only one they’ve won so far was back in 1968 when only four teams participated in the finals. England, of course, have never won a European Championship and this will be their first time in a major final since 1966. England manager Gareth Southgate wasn’t even born then.

Italy have now gone a total of 33 matches without losing and over the tournament so far have won four of their six matches, winning another in Extra Time and another on penalties. England are also enjoying an impressive run of form, they’ve now gone 12 matches without defeat and over the tournament have won four of their six games, drawing two, winning one of them in Extra Time.

The Italians have kept three clean sheets over their six games so far and have scored a total of 12 goals, conceding just three. England have scored 10 goals over their six games but most impressively of all they’ve kept five clean sheets over their six games, in a defence with Harry Maguire and Jordan Pickford in goal that’s simply outstanding.

The sides have met five times since 2012 with three ending level and both teams winning one each, one of those matches was won by Italy on penalties. Two of those games saw Over 2.5 goals landing while four of them saw Both Teams to Score. While England’s defence has been solid, it’s still mind-blowing to think about their record, it’s tough to see Italy not getting at least one or two here especially considering the quality they have in their midfield and attacking departments. Both Teams to Score is currently available for as high as 2.20 with some bookies and looks like a good shout.

Both sides have a slight advantage over each other here and it remains to be seen which will matter more when it comes to kickoff. Italy will have had a day longer to recover for the match while England had to go to Extra Time against Denmark. England too, although officially the away side, are playing at their national stadium and the vast majority of the crowd will be England fans. No doubt this will be a factor in the opening period of the game.

Something that might also be worth looking at here is BTTS and Draw. Italy have had two draws over their three knockout phase games while England have drawn two of their six matches in the tournament and this could well go to Extra Time. It’s going to be a fascinating match, it could be coming home, it could be going to Rome.
