Saturday 26th June, Euro 2020: 11/2 Italy vs Austria Bet Builder
Italy to win – The Italians have had an amazing start to the tournament and are now most people’s dark horse to win. I’m not even sure you can call them that.
They’ve won 3 games on the spin so far and they haven’t conceded a goal. Get this, they’re on a 11-match winning streak in all competitions and they didn’t concede in any.
Italy to take 5+ corners – This isn’t too big of an ask in my opinion. Italy should dominate for the vast majority of the game and they’ll have big guns like Immobile and Insigne back after a well-earned rest. Italy took 8 corners against Turkey in the group stages and another 7 against Wales!
Ciro Immobile 2+ shots on target – As I say, Immobile will be back after a rest and he’s been amazing so far this summer. He averages 4.20 shots per game for Italy with around 1.64 going on target. That’s his stats in all competitions internationally. At the Euros, he’s had 3 shots on target across 2 matches and is averaging a huge 5.29 shots per game. Surely he tests an average Austria side a couple of times?
Marko Arnautovic to have 2+ shots – Austria will be relying heavily on Arnautovic to make something from nothing whenever they gain possession. It’s obvious that Italy will dominate and with that, I think Arnautovic will rush any chances he gets and shoot at any opportunity.
The big man averages a tasty 4.56 shots per game for Austria in all competitions with 2.17 going on target. That makes for great reading given that we only need a couple of attempts towards goal.
