Belgium vs Italy Tips and Analysis
Belgium vs Italy @ 20:00 GMT
Tip: Match will end 1 – 1 between 1/10 stake (5.50 odds)
Belgium will be hosting Italy in their first game of euro 2016. Belgium is the favorite here but both sides are actually up to the task of making the top 2. With their good squad Belgium would play to win this game.
Italy is not coming to lose their opener either, they are actually capable of a win.
Belgium has not beaten Italy in the euro since 1972, only in friendlies. We do not expect too many goals in this game and that is why we will be expecting both sides to score and end it in a 1-1 correct score.
Tip: Both teams to score – yes 2/10 stake (2.10 odds)
Opening game @ GROUP E at the EURO2016 @ Parc Olympique Lyonnais:
Belgium vs Italy
On 13th of June, games in GROUP E begins and these two have a real chance to move forward to the knockout phase. Both side had a good prep period in 2016 with 4 international friendlies for each.
Portugal’s stats on these friendlies: 2W, 1D, 1L
Italy’s stats on these friendlies: 2W, 1D, 1L
Their H2H statistic since 2000 is 2 wins for The Azzurri and 1 win for the Red Lions.
(2-0, 3-1 and 3-1)
Belgium are seeking their first competitive win against Italy since May 1972.
We won’t predict the winner here, it depends on many things for sure, but somehow we feel the resources quite equal on both sides.
We think both teams are organized and good enough to score on their EURO opening.
Tip: Under 2.50 goals in full time 4/10 stake (1.50 odds)
Belgium meets Italy in a group which seems the toughest in this tournament. They managed to qualify top of the group with 7 wins 2 draws and 1 loss, losing away to Wales, drawing home to them and away to Bosnia.
In 2016 they did not impress in the friendlies beating the Swiss and Norway but losing to Portugal and drawing home to Finland. Italy managed to stay undefeated in their group winning 7 and draw vs Croatia and Bulgaria away and home to Croatia.
In 2016 beat SCO, FIN draw vs ROM and SPA but got trashed 1-4 away vs GER. We see a very tight game and no more than 1 goal despite both teams being involved in high scoring affairs in friendlies.
