England Favourites In Euro 2020 Final Odds But Italians The Value
The time has finally come. For the first time since 1966 England have reached the final of a major tournament, writes Bradley Gibbs. On Sunday evening, the Three Lions will face Italy at Wembley in the final of Euro 2020 (8pm; TV: Live on BBC1 & ITV).
Can Gareth Southgate’s men do what no other England side has done in the last 55 years and lift a trophy? Or will the wily Italians spoil the party for the hosts? Read on for our preveiew and betting tips with reference to the Euro odds from bookmakers.
Grinding it out
It has been easy to criticise England performances at this tournament. They have not been the most flamboyant and at times it has been boring. They have lacked real attacking aggression, though the togetherness and effectiveness of Gareth Southgate’s team cannot be questioned.
The Three Lions clearly have a fantastic team spirit and they’ve been hard to beat, there’s no doubt about that and, crucially, they’ve continued to find a way. It wasn’t pretty against Denmark, but in their toughest game yet, England dug deep and ground out a result.
In the past it has often been Italy that grind out results and fight their way to victory. It’s usually them that are accused of being overly defensive and dull to watch, but this current crop of Italian players is a little different. Make no mistake, with the ultra-experienced Giorgio Chiellini and Leanardo Bonucci at the back, they’ve still got that gritty, hard-to-pass nature. Since Roberto Mancini took the reins, Gli Azzuri (The Blues) have played with lots more flair, as we’ve seen on numerous occasions at this tournament. As we approach the final game, the Italians rank as the second-highest scorers with 12 goals scored, so it’s fair to say that they’ve certainly not been here just to sit back and soak up the pressure.
Defences to be on top at Wembley?
As touched on in this preview above, England have been solid defensively throughout this tournament. They are yet to concede from open play, while the free kick that Mikkel Damsgaard fired in on Wednesday evening is the only goal that Jordan Pickford has conceded. Add in that the Italians are never easy to beat, never easy to create against and never easy to score against and it’s not difficult to envisage defences being on top on Sunday evening.
After all, we are talking about two teams with the two best defensive records at the tournament. Between them, the pair have conceded just four goals at Euro 2020, while they are the top performers in terms of xG against too. England have surrendered a massively impressive total of just 3.4 expected goals in their six matches, while Italy have conceded a total of 5.5.
Tournaments haven’t been kind to England, or rather the English have carved out a habit of failing to produce since 1966, but it’s only when you examine the record of a country like Italy that you realise quite how poorly the Three Lions have done. Sunday’s final will be England’s second ever.
In contrast, Italy have reached ten major finals, six World Cup finals, four European Championship finals. We’re talking about a country that is steeped in international football success having lifted the World Cup no fewer than four times, winning this competition in 1968 also. Interestingly, of the European nations, only Germany have featured in more finals than the Italians.
Such stats would suggest that England have got their work cut out on Sunday, but history goes out the window on the pitch somewhat. Besides, just like none of the England players have tasted European glory, neither have any of the current Italian crop. Only a handful of players remain from the side that lost to Spain in the 2012 Euros final, which was the last time Italy featured in a final.
Where’s the bet at the Euro Final odds?
Many England fans feel that the time is very much now for England. After years of failure, they are finally ready to get the job done. It is easy to see why this is the general feeling after the way they have gone about their business at the tournament so far. However, we’re talking about an England side that is yet to be seriously tested. Quite a few people, of which I was certainly one, expected the Danes to really test England’s backline. That wasn’t to be, though the Italians, having already hurt the likes of Spain and Belgium, certainly won’t make the same mistake.
Looking at the Euro 2020 odds with the bookies, it is hard to go against an Italy win at 21/10 in normal time. Defensively, England have been a little bit tighter than Sunday’s hosts, but they’ve certainly had an easier run to the final, while it is Italy who’ve offered a little bit more quality offensively.
As we can see from Italy’s average expected goal difference of +0.50 and England’s of +0.65, there’s not much between the pair and a tight game is likely to unfold, but if we think about it logically, the Italians really do warrant a little bit more respect in the Euro 2020 Final betting. On this basis, a small play on Italy breaking English hearts offers bettors a slither of value.
If it’s a player prop you’re looking for ahead of the final, then look no further than Ciro Immobile to score at any time at 5/2. The Italian centre forward has seen plenty of action at this tournament, notching twice. It is not that he has been scoring game after game, in fact he hasn’t scored since match-day two, but Immobile has delivered some eye-catching performances, seeing plenty of the ball in attacking areas.
The Lazio striker is averaging a pleasing 3.96 shots per 90 at this tournament, while he is also averaging a very steady 0.35 expected goals per 90 too. If anybody is going to breach England from open play, then there’ll be few more likely than Ciro Immobile on the pitch on Sunday. The Italian marksman looks worth supporting at the Euro betting odds to find the net at any time in normal time.
