Italy – Greece, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ITALY - GREECE
After not qualifying for the World Cup, Italy are doing their best to correct this huge mistake and to be perfect in their qualifications before Euro 2020. And for now they really are. You can see the concentration and full self-control in every match. Perhaps the most difficult test was the visit of Finland, which also passed successfully. Italy is currently one win away from the theoretical participation of Euro 2020.
Greece can only hope to finish 3rd if they sharply lift their form, which is tragic. Losses from Finland and Italy are understandable, but defeat by Armenia as host and draw with Liechtenstein are another black spot in the history of the Greeks. And they are not a weak team. There’s just a lot of things around the national team that don’t go well.
Expert view : Judging by the current form, it is likely that the Italians should take the game with ease. We will, however, give Greece one last chance, because usually in the matches with the stronger rivals somehow they manage to rise and play valuable games. We also expect the Italians not to strain as much after they are already on their way to the Euros. Winning 1 goal difference is typical in their style. Prediction – Greece +2.0 AH at 1.70.
