There will be a repeat of the European Championship final in the Nations League on Friday, as both England and Italy look for a victory to improve their chances of avoiding relegation from League A. Both sides are yet to show their best form in the Nations League this term, but which sides can pick up a morale-boosting three points this week?
Before Betting On Italy vs England
There will be a high quality showdown in the Nations League this weekend, as England and Italy meet in the penultimate round of fixtures. It will be a repeat of the EURO 2020 final, which saw Italy overcome England at Wembley on penalties.
However, the Three Lions likely come into this fixture with slightly more confidence, as they will at least be playing at the World Cup in two months. Italy shocked the world, as they failed to reach the event in Qatar, which means that preparations for the European Championship qualifiers have already got underway.
England will be looking to bounce back after a recent disappointing run of form in the Nations League. They haven’t won in four games that they have played in the competition this year, and they have scored just once.
The Three Lions have been marginally better against the more talented sides, as their only defeats have come against Hungary. The most recent of those was one of their biggest ever home defeats, as the Three Lions were hammered 4-0 by Hungary.
Italy vs England Offshore Betting Odds
England’s record against Italy is an extremely disappointing one, and they have failed to win away from home against the Italians since 1997. For that reason, there could be value in the draw at +221 with Pinnacle for the game in the Nations League on Friday.
