Italy and England will be the final of EURO 2020, as both teams pass the semi finals, after penalties in Italy – Spaind and win at extra time in England – Denamrk.
Italy showed that it deservedly goes to the final, after very strong matches, with a few exceptions against Austria and Spain, which at certain moments made it very difficult to defend the Azzurri. Italy with Roberto Mancini has grown in recent years, having reached the point where it failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2018, but with a lot of work and new additions to the team, they made a good team that includes both experienced players over 30- they, like Chiellini, Imobile, who have a lot of experience and at the same time have players under 25, such as goalkeeper Donaruma, Chiesa, Locatelli and others. The team plays mostly in the middle of the field, trying to keep the ball as much as possible and relies on quick counterattacks with a few passes, where great credit goes to Ciro Imobile, who on the wings is almost unstoppable. Very strong team definitely, and in this match they have great opportunities to win the cup.
England, for their part, did not start the championship strongly. except for certain moments of the match with Germany and a very strong performance in the semifinals against Denmark, in the other matches the English bet on a different style, rare in football, with more control, in the middle and often returning the goalkeeper without much idea ahead. In the semifinals they performed at a very high level and if they play like that against Italy I expect a match with more than two goals. This style is a prerequisite for burris attacks, but also for counterattacks of the Italians, where they have the strength.
In the matches between the two teams, the statistics show that out of the last 5 matches between them, there are 3 draws, one victory for Italy and one for England. In general, an equal performance, and in terms of goals, two matches ended over 2.5 goals and 3 matches under 2.5 goals. My prediction for this final is a victory for Italy, as I believe that in an attacking style of play, such as in the match with Denmark, Italy will use fast attackers and will rely on counterattacks, which are very successful for the Italian team.
Prediction – away win – 2.90 from 22bet
