Liechtenstein hosts Italy
Liechtenstein hosts Italy in a game from Group J of the qualifications for Euro 2020. Let’s examine this fixture in Vaduz during our football prediction tips, shall we?
Everyone in the Italian squad is in a good mood right now. After shockingly missing to qualify for the last World Cup in Russia, now the Azzurri did a terrific job in the campaign for Euro 2020. With the win they achieved against Greece in Rome, Italy are now officially qualified for the next big tournament on the continent.
Italy’s manager Roberto Mancini deserves compliments for his work with the team. So far his boys are perfect in the European campaign – seven wins from seven games played. Now everyone in the country hopes that Mancini is going to be the man who leads the Azzurri to another memorable performance in a big tournament.
For the Azzurri it was a calm and convincing performance against Greece at the Olimpico. The visitors survived more than an hour without conceding a goal, but Jorginho from a penalty kick and Fillippo Bernadeschi decided the game with two goals behind Alexandros Paschalakis’ back.
We guess that Roberto Mancini will make some changes in his line-up for the match in Vaduz. Players like Nicolo Zaniolo, Andrea Belotti and the goalscorer Fillippo Bernadeschi could get a shot to start against Liechtenstein.
Speaking of Liechstenstein, far from surprising they are the underdog in this group, being at the bottom of the standings with just two points won so far. They don’t have a chance for anything meaningful in this group, but playing against a four time world champion like Italy is always a honour.
Few days ago Helgi Kolvidsson’s team hosted Armenia and fought for a point. Barseghyan put the Armenians ahead, but Yanik Frick equalised for Liechtenstein in the second half.
In today’s football prediction tips we believe that Italy will try to achieve 8th consecutive win in this group against Liechtenstein and they will probably succeed. The hosts are far away from the Azzurri’s quality, so don’t expect much from them.
