England v Italy Nations League Betting Tips 11/06/2022
England and Italy meet for the first time since their Euro 2020 final clash last summer, so enjoy reading our England v Italy Nations League Betting Tips 11/06/2022. The Nations League Group A3 sides have stuttered in their campaign so far. England, in particular, are struggling for form, while Italy has shown some improvement throughout the tournament. For both sides, a win at Wembley this weekend will be vital to their chances of qualification to the knockout stages. This fixture kicks off at 7:45 p.m, and it will be shown live on channel 4.
England came into the Nations League in solid form, winning four matches in a row. But Gareth Southgate’s side are yet to win in their opening two matches of the tournament. A disappointing 1-0 loss in Hungary came before a 1-1 comeback draw against Germany in Munich. Italy has made a more promising start in comparison. Gil Azzurri drew 1-1 with Germany in their first match before comfortably beating Hungary at home last time out.
Regarding team news, midfielder Kalvin Phillips is ruled out after coming off against Germany. Midfielder Phil Foden also misses out after withdrawing from the squad due to illness. Italy trio Federico Chiesa, Ciro Immobile and Nicolo Zaniolo withdrew from the squad before the Nations League after their respective injuries.
Matchwinner Betting Odds
Firstly, looking at the matchwinner odds for England vs Italy, the hosts are the clear favourites, with SBK offering the best odds at 16/19. The Three Lions are unbeaten in their last 15 matches at Wembley, winning 12 during this run. They are also on a three-match winning run after victories over the Ivory Coast (3-0), Switzerland (2-1) and Albania (5-0). Alternatively, Italy are current outsiders due to some patchy recent form. Roberto Mancini’s side are winless in five of their last seven in all competitions, including defeats against Argentina (3-0) and North Macedonia (1-0). As a result, Smarkets have the best odds for an away win at 43/10. But Gil Azzurri’s away form has been impressive, and they are unbeaten in their last 16 on the road. Given England’s equally impressive home form and the fact these sides have drawn 1-1 in 90 minutes in their last three meetings, we are backing a draw at Wembley. There is good value backing a stalemate, with SBK providing 28/11 odds.
The BTTS market could provide additional value in the England vs Italy Nations League match this weekend. Clean sheets have been rare for the Group A3 rivals in recent matches. England has failed to keep a clean sheet in five of their last six Nations League Matches. Italy has also struggled for shutouts, conceding one or more in eight of their last nine in all competitions. With defensive frailties in both teams, there is decent value in backing SBK’s 11/10 odds for BTTS Yes.
Anytime Goalscorer Bet Tips
Goals are expected on Saturday, which means there could be some reliable picks in the anytime scorer market. Italy has scored in their opening two matches and Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini has led the charge. Pellegrini has scored two of Italy’s three goals in this season’s Nations League. He has also netted three in all international competitions. At 8/1, provided by Bet365, Pellegrini could be a good outsider bet in the anytime scorer market. However, on current form, there is no ignoring, Harry Kane. The England captain scored the late equaliser against Germany to keep his side’s Nations League chances alive. The goal was also his tenth in his last ten matches for England. As a result, our anytime scorer pick this week is Kane, and Bet365 will return the best odds at 8/5.
England desperately needs a win to keep their hopes of progressing in the Nations League alive. But the Three Lions will have to overcome their Euro 2020 demons and put in an improved performance to take anything from a hard to beat Italy side.
