Italy 1/4 to win Group E in Euro 2016
Competition: Euro 2016
Market: Italy to win Group E
Odds: 1/4 @ Betfair
Italy enjoyed a 2-0 win against Belgium in their opening Euro 2016 Group E clash, and now find themselves in pole position to make the knockouts against all odds. The Azzurri were much-maligned for a lack of quality in the squad compared to part tournaments, but the win in their first group game sees confidence a lot higher than before.
Currently top of Group E with three points from the opening game, Italy have already opened up a two-point lead over the chasing pack. Second-placed Sweden are adrift with only a point from their first game, as are the Republic of Ireland in third. Italy next face Sweden, and are favourites to come out on top, so they could make the knockouts with a game to play.
Manager Antonio Conte was somewhat disparaging of his team ahead of the European Championships, but was left celebrating with the squad after their Belgium win. And given Sweden are an inferior footballing nation based on squad quality, Italy are expected to get the job done, when many felt they could struggle to register a point. Betfair are giving odds of 1/4 for Italy to win Group E.
