    It’s Italy vs England in the final of Euro 2020. We take a look at the stats and best football tips.

    Italy face England in the Euro 2020 final and we find out which team is going to get their hands on the trophy. The two teams last played back in 2018, a 1-1 draw with goals from Jamie Vardy and Lorenzo Insigne.

    The odds are tight with the bookies offering 19/10 on an Italy win, 2/1 on the draw and 17/10 for an England win.

    England beat Denmark 2-1 with an extra time Harry Kane penalty and Italy drew 1-1 with Spain, winning the game on penalties.

    Italy – PL 6 | Won 4 | GF 12 | GA 3

    The Italians looked impressive during the group stages and have managed to keep going despite being taken to extra time twice in three knockout games. They secured an impressive 2-1 victory against Belgium in the quarter finals and beat Spain on penalties in the semi finals. In both of those games Italy did actually lose on xG though conceding 1.7 xG in both games and against Spain only getting 0.4 xG themselves and have conceded in each of their last three games. Mancini has Italy set up in a style that suits and allows them to play to their strengths. It’s advantage Italy for me as they have knocked out two top sides in Belgium and Spain whereas England have not yet been tested by a top side.

    England – PL 6 | Won 4 | GF 9 | GA 1

    The Three Lions finally conceded a goal against Denmark after five clean sheets in a row but still looked dominant and responded really well to going behind. They have been brilliant but this will be their biggest test by far and it’s quite hard to judge just how good England are because they have had such a good route to the final. I don’t think England will ever get a better chance to win a major final and the players seem to be handling the pressure well. Games have been going to extra time quite regularly and i would not be surprised if this one does. That could be advantage England who have such a good bench and can bring on the pace of Grealish, Sancho and Rashford against tired opposition legs.

    Betting Tips: I think this will be a very tight game with barely anything to choose between the two sides. The Italians have passed bigger tests on their run to the final but have almost scrapped through the knockouts. I favour Italy’s midfield to be better technically but Rice and Phillips work together brilliantly and will make it tough for the Italians.
