The Italian national team at home against Spain in the semifinals of the decisive stage of the League of Nations. The match will take place on October 6 in Milan.
After the triumph at Euro 2020, the Italian national team played three matches, in which they won only one victory.
Oddly enough, the Italians have added to themselves problems in the fight for first place in their qualifying group for the 2022 World Cup. Squadra Azzurra drew with Bulgaria and Switzerland in early September. In both meetings, Roberto Mancini’s team dominated, but could not score the decisive goal.
After that, Italy smashed Lithuania at home (5: 0), scoring four goals in the first 30 minutes of the match.
In addition, the Italian national team has updated the world record – after meeting with Lithuania, its unbeaten streak reached 37 matches…
Italy last conceded more than one goal in June 2018 in a friendly against France.
The Spaniards also had one unsuccessful match last month. Luis Enrique’s team lost away to Sweden (1: 2) in the selection for the 2022 World Cup. In the table of their group, Spain takes the first place, but the same Swedes have played two matches less and can get ahead of it.
After that, the Spanish national team won two victories. First, the semi-finalist of Euro 2020 defeated Georgia (4: 0), and then there was a victory over Kosovo (2: 0).
Spain in 17 previous matches suffered only one defeat (taking into account only regular time).
Interestingly, for the upcoming matches, Luis Enrique again did not call not a single Real Madrid playerbut also included Gavi as a 17-year-old Barcelona midfielder.
Forecast and rate
You can bet on Italy for 2.44 , 1xbet download app offer a draw in this match for 3.32 , and the victory for Spain – for 3.44
The Italians have the advantage of their home field, in the matches between the national teams this is sometimes of great importance. On the other hand, I recall the meeting of these teams at Euro 2020 – there the Spaniards, despite the offensive defeat in the penalty shootout, sometimes very famously “drove” the Squadra Azzurra.
So it is far from the fact that Italy will be helped by the home field factor.
The bet is the victory of Spain in 3.44.
.You can also consider a bet on a draw based on the results of the first half at 1.98.
