Italy v Spain betting tips – Mancini’s men favourites to win

Italy are now the Euro outright betting favourites to win the 2020 Championship and there’s plenty to like about a side who finished top of Group A after claiming a maximum nine points. They then overcame the challenge of Austria in extra-time in their last sixteen clash before beating Belgium in a high-quality quarter final.

The Azzurri will now meet Spain at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday 6 July, with Roberto Mancini’s side the strong betting favourites to overcome old adversaries, with La Roja having edged Switzerland in their quarter final clash after the tie went to a penalty shoot-out.

Are Italy a Good Bet to Beat Spain at Euro 2020?

Italy look a rock solid team in all departments and are hard to oppose in the football betting odds for Euro 2020, with the team producing an attacking brand of football which is seeing the goals flow from several different played. Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne have been practically ever-present.

It was Insigne who proved to be the match winner against the Belgians, while Gianluigi Donarumma is a young but solid stopper between the sticks and he operates behind the twin defenders that are Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini.

It’s crazy to think that Italy didn’t even qualify for the 2018 World Cup when they can be regarded as arguably the best team in the world right now, with some punters wanting to back them to win without conceding a goal although Spain will pose some kind of threat.

Spain Betting Outsiders for the First Time in the Tournament

Luis Enrique has certainly done an impressive job with the Spain team although there’s a feeling that they don’t quite compare to previous incarnations of La Roja teams, especially the ones who were so successful in 2008, 2010 and 2012.

Part of the problem is that while the Spanish were able to fill their boots against Slovakia and Croatia, they do seem to have problems breaking down more stubborn defences and that includes teams like Sweden, Switzerland and Poland, with Vladimir Petkovic’s side actually able to keep Spain at bay with ten men on the pitch for a long period.

Nevertheless, Spain will feel as though they can make an impact in this clash and some might find their betting odds to big in a one-off game where the stakes are high and the game could be decided by a slender margin.

What Are the Best Bets for Italy v Spain?

There’s a huge prize at stake for these teams who are bidding to claim the first final spot at the 2020 European Championship, with Italy looking the more impressive on the road to the semi-finals and you could do worse than backing the Azzurri at odds-against to claim a full-time victory.

However, the Italians are also a good football bet to qualify for the final and that means getting there whether they record a normal time, extra-time or penalty shoot-out triumph, with Mancini’s side showing a remarkable will to win en route to the business end of the competition.

Should you anticipate a tight game being played out, then Under 2.5 Goals could be a good shout and it could be a case of defences on top, with Spain arguably having a strong defence than Belgium who made some errors against Italy which led to them chasing the match.

You can go down the route of betting on Italy to win the game and keeping a clean sheet along the way, with the central defenders Bonucci and Chiellini potentially a decent bet to score the opening goal considering that they possess the sort of aerial threat that can make all the difference.
