Italy vs England: prediction for the UEFA Nations League game
Italy enjoyed success in June and suffered only one defeat in four games, to Germany (2:5). The Italians were the only team in the group that managed to beat Hungary (2:1), who were relentless at their home arena. Italy also held Germany to a draw (1:1). With five points from a win and two draws, Italy is in third place in Group 3.
England only chalked up two points from four games and sits bottom of the group table. The team drew against Germany (1:1) and Italy (0:0), but suffered two defeats to Hungary. After a narrow loss in Hungary (0:1), the Three Lions got crushed at home (0:4). Moreover, central defender Stones was sent off in the last game and won't be able to help his team in the upcoming fixture.
Italy haven't scored in 4 of the last 8 games.
Italy conceded 6 goals in 3 games.
The visitors didn't deliver good results in June, but they still have two games remaining and a good chance to strengthen their standings. The vice-champions of Europe hope to retain their spor in League A, so they need to pull themselves together and get a win here. We will be backing extremely motivated England in this fixture.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to England
There should be goals in this match. Both sides will cling to points in effort to finish in the third line and go forward, creating many scoring chances. We believe that at least three goals will be scored here.
Second prediction - total over 2.5 goals
