Italy vs England Match Preview & Team News
Italy is arguably a team that showed the most convincing performances so far in the tournament. They stormed through the group stage, keeping their net intact on that course. However, Roberto Mancini’s side struggled with Austrian discipline but secured a victory after the extra time. Their performance against Belgium was excellent, and the team showed all its talent. On the other hand, a completely different approach against Spain. Azzurri showed they could play direct and attractive football like in the match against the Red Devils, but here, La Furia Roja dominated the game. Giorgio Chiellini and the lads didn’t forget the “Italian” style, and they secured a ticket to the finals after the penalty shootout, although they were inferior against Spain. Now, they are one step away from winning the first EURO title since 1968 and two unsuccessful attempts back in 2000 and 2012. Italy is on a stunning run of 33 games without tasting a defeat, and they are looking forward to extending it. Their defense has been tough to crack lately, despite conceding in all knockout games in EURO 2020.
Maybe they were not too convincing in the group stage, but England improved its game in the knockout stage. They also had one disappointment in the form of a goalless draw, but it came in the group stage against Scotland and didn’t affect their chances of progressing further. Gareth Southgate’s side celebrated against Germany and was excellent in a 4:0 victory over Ukraine in the quarter-finals. However, they needed to come from behind for the first time in the tournament in the semi-final clash against Denmark. Additionally, the Three Lions also went into the extra time but managed to avoid a penalty shootout drama. However, England was lucky to get the penalty kick awarded in the very finish of the first 15 minutes of additional time. They also conceded their first goal in EURO 2020 in this game after keeping the clean sheet in seven consecutive matches. Harry Kane and the lads want to bring glory to their country for the first time since 1966, when they became the World champions.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a very tight match, and both teams have a good chance of winning the trophy. England will have a slight advantage due to playing on the home ground, but that could also put some additional pressure on them. Italy could wait for its chance patiently, and we wouldn’t be surprised if this match goes into the extra time.
Goals Market Prediction
Both teams have been very disciplined in the back lately. Although Italy failed to keep the clean sheet in their last three games, they kept their net intact 11 times before the game against Austria. We saw just one England’s game going over a 2.5 margin on the previous eight occasions, considering only the regulation time. Since the stake is very high, we don’t expect to see more than two goals in total.
