England U21 v Italy U21 Betting Predictions

Opening games of any major tournament are difficult to predict and both sides will be fully aware that defeat in this game could make it extremely difficult to progress into the latter stages of this tournament in what looks a tough group so the emphasis on winning this opening match will be of obvious importance for both sides.

England certainly look the more likely to get their campaign off to a winning start as they head into this match having won all of their previous five matches in which they have conceded no goals and with players like Wilfred Zaha and Tom Ince leading the attack up front Stuart Pearce’s ‘Three Lions’ definitely have the firepower to cause the Italian defence some serious problems.

Italy however are the clear favourites with the online bookmakers to win this game and do have a better head to head record over England in recent meetings and they also have a strong attacking squad which will no doubt score goals in this tournament which include the likes of Fabio Borini and Ciro Immobile the latter having scored in three of the last four matches for this country.

A tough game to be really confident in choosing a winner, but the stats do favour Stuart Pearce’s side and they certainly look huge value at their current odds and well worth a small interest along with the goals market with the goal stats suggesting very few goals to be scored in this one.
