Final Betting Analysis: England vs Italy
On paper, England looks like the better squad. Not only do the English start Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, and Harry McGuire, three of the best players at their respective positions in the world, but the English are so deep they can bring a player of Phil Foden’s quality off the bench.
Foden, Kane, Sterling, and McGuire make England close to impossible to beat. However, the Italians have won 33 straight, a record. Italian fans would have reason to worry if Italy hadn’t won many of those matches in different ways.
Italy faced a tough customer in Spain, but the Italians pulled through via penalty kicks. In the match before, Italy beat Belgium by being aggressive. The Italians dominated Switzerland and Turkey during group play by playing the same way they did against Belgium.
In the 1-0 win against Wales, Italy played a more subdued style. Italy’s flexibility makes them the team to back on Sunday. England can be flexible as well, but the Italians can strike quickly, or take their time after grabbing possession.
It will be tough for England to deal with Immobile, Insigne, and Chiesa and then break down Italy’s defense led by Emerson, Bonucci, and Chielini. Once the English get a shot on goal, one of the top keepers in the world, AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma, will be there ready to prevent Kane and Sterling from kicking it into the back of the net.
England can win this match. But there’s something special about this group of Italian players. In the EURO 2020 Final, Italy should prevail.
