#PickYourPunt @ 7/1
Half/full time result – Draw/Draw
I’m expecting a cagey affair in Naples in what could be pivotal clash in the qualification campaign.
Four of the last five meetings between these sides have been draws after 90 minutes, three of which finished 1-1. Italy ran out 1-0 winners when these two met in the Nations League last year with Giacoma Raspadori scoring the only goal of the game.
England have failed to beat Italy since a 2-1 friendly win in 2012, going six games without victory, so I’m backing the half/full time result – draw/draw.
Total goals – Under 2.5
Of the last 13 games between these two, only three saw more than 2.5 goals.
In fact, under 2.5 goals has landed in the last five meetings between these sides, so I fancy it to land again here.
Both sides tend to find the scoresheet when these nations meet, but once more, I’m expecting a cagey affair.
Team corners – Italy over 4.5
Roberto Mancini’s side racked up 12 corners in their last match against Austria in November and four corners in the prior match against Albania, so I think backing over 4.5 Italy corners is a decent shout here.
In fact, the last time these two nations met, Italy had 5 corners.
