England 24/13 to beat Italy in Group D meeting tonight
Competition: World Cup
Market: England to win against Italy
Odds: 24/13 @ 888 Sport
England want to get their World Cup campaign off to the perfect start with a win in their opener, but have a tricky tie against Italy. Thoughts go back immediately to the two nations’ Euro 2012 quarter-final meeting that saw the Italians dominate the game and reach the semis-finals, but England have come a long way since then.
They have a much younger squad of players that can offer pace and penetration, while facing an ever-ageing Italian outfit who have failed to win their last four all-international friendlies, scoring just two goals in the process.
Italy are likely to line up with AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli in attack, but he’s been short of form. Ciro Immobile stands an honest chance of featuring as he’s bagged a hat trick in a World Cup warm-up game against Fluminense.
But England come into tonight’s clash off the back of three wins and two draws from their last seven games, of which opponents included Chile, Germany and Denmark.
888 Sport are giving odds of 24/13 for the Three Lions to get their revenge against Italy tonight, which could see them topping Group D.
