Euro Qualifications / Italy vs Greece – This was supposed to be the most interesting match in the Group J but the situation in the table is exactly the opposite. Italy firmly holds the 1st place having won all six matches played so far. In fact, the Italians have practically qualified for the final tournament. On the other hand Greece is a great disappointment and it occupies the penultimate place having 13 points fewer than Italy, which won their first match in Athens by 3-0.
Game Italy vs Greece begins 12.10.2019 at 20:45 CET
After a major failure in the previous qualifying cycle when they failed to qualify for the World Cup in Russia Italy has very seriously understood these qualifications. The Italians dominate their group from the day one and they won all six matches so they occupy the first place in the Group J and only theoretically can fail to qualify for the European Championship. If they win Greece now they will definitely confirm their qualification and this is the motive for them in this match. It should be said that the Italians didn’t win easily and they had problems with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Armenia and Finland in three previous matches when they received goals. Regarding the team, Sensi is injured, while Emerson and Pellegrini are not in the team.
Probable lineups Italy: G. Donnarumma – D’Ambrosio, Bonucci, Mancini, Spinazzola – Jorginho, Verratti, Barella – Chiesa, Belotti, Bernardeschi
Another qualifying cycle that has turned into a true disaster for the Greeks as it become clear already after half of matches were finished that they won’t qualify for the European Championship. The Greeks were European Champions 15 years ago and now are below-average national team that has managed to defeat only Lichtenstein in the first round. In the previous round they drew 1-1 with the same opponent and it was another confirmation of the catastrophe. Change of manager hasn’t helped much, and not inviting Manolas, Sokratis, Samaris and Mitroglu is confirmation that they threw in the towel. Fortounis and Tsimikas are injured, while Masouras is suspended.
Probable lineups Greece: Vlachodimos – Bakakis, Retsos, Siovas, Stafylidis – Kourbelis, Bouchalakis – Limnios, Zeca, Mantalos – Donis
Betting Pick: Italy vs Greece
Italy has very comfortable situation and they are maximally relaxed and ready for a new triumph. Greece seems like a shattered army, they go to Italy weakened and it seems that they have surrendered in advance, so they will most probably lose without any uncertainty about it.
Pick: Asian handicap -1.5 Italy
Odds: 1.70 at betsson (down to 1.60 can be played)
