Italy vs England Bet Builder: Friday, September, 23rd

It has been just over one year since the Italians struck the fatal blow to England’s Euro campaign on home soil, and here at bettingexpert, we’ll attempt to fashion Italy vs England bet builder tips amidst any lingering heartbreak for some. So close, but not quite good enough for Gareth Southgate’s men in a tale that saw Giorgio Chiellini play the leading role in silverware-lifting duties.

Italy vs England Preview

Friday, September 23rd, 19:45 (UK)

Nevertheless, there has been plenty of football since and more than enough time to get over it – kind of. Italy’s crushing defeat to North Macedonia in March pencilled in a winter break this year for football-mad Italians across the globe. From clinching Euro glory to failing to make the cut for the World Cup at the second successive attempt following their Russian hiatus.

England’s comfortable unbeaten ten matches in World Cup qualifying places a different level of importance on the upcoming fixture in Milan, with players vying for seats on the plane to Qatar. After four winless Nations League matches and a 4-0 loss to Hungary at Wembley last time out, it’s safe to say that Southgate’s head can be turned. The inclusion of Ivan Toney is primed to do precisely that, with the Brentford forward in contention to earn his first cap. Toney hasn’t been involved in the England set-up throughout the varying youth levels, arriving bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and in the form of his life in the Premier League.

Though the Hungarian trouncing of England will take the headlines at international level, June’s Nations League fixtures also encouraged a 5-2 German-Italian walkover in Monchengladbach. Goals from Wilfried Gnonto and Alessandro Bastoni after Germany found themselves 5-0 up after 69 minutes made the scoreline somewhat palatable back home for the Italians.

With both sides venturing into the game on the back of humiliating defeats, we should expect a response in the fashion capital of the world on Friday evening.

Italy vs England Stats & Facts

  • England haven’t beaten the Azzurri since a 2-0 victory at Wembley in the 1978 World Cup qualifying campaign. That is the Three Lions’ only victory in ten meetings.
  • Italy won their first EURO title since 1968 last summer as they defeated an England side competing for a first-ever continental title at Wembley.
  • Fifty-goal Harry Kane is just three goals shy of Wayne Rooney’s (53) England goalscoring record.
  • England will likely face the drop to Nations League Group B if they vacate Milan without a win.

In a rather dull first step into Friday’s encounter, under three goals is on the agenda at an inviting 1.61 to provide a reasonable foundation to the bet builder. In June, the previous meeting ended in a 0-0 stalemate which is reassuring. Before that, the European Championship’s 1-1 showpiece final saw just two goals. In fact, despite the two humiliations last time out in the Nations League group, only Italy’s 2-1 win against Hungary had mustered three or more goals. On the other hand, England oversaw 1-0, 1-1 and 0-0 scorelines.

Suppose both sides tentatively approach the game in the hope of not conceding, first and foremost, to avoid facilitating another whitewash. In that case, we could be going into the half-time break with little to shout about in terms of goals. The Three Lions have only seen one goal in the first half of their four Nations League fixtures. Roland Sallai’s strike in the 16th minute in the 0-4 loss is the only goal, scored or conceded, before the break from four matches.

To round off the selections for England’s visit to Italy, let’s place our trust in Jesus Gil Manzano. The Spanish referee has delivered 24 cards in just three La Liga matches this term, with a 4.90 in Spain’s top flight last season. Furthermore, Manzano certainly likes sharing his cautions around, with both teams shown a booking in 80% of his 20 appearances in the league in 2021/22. With the addition of either side receiving a card in the bet builder, it drags the proposed builder to an odds-against punt.

  • Under 3 Goals
  • Both Teams Receive A Card
