Portugal vs Italy: Predictions & Odds

 

UEFA Nations League Portugal vs Italy

Portugal 13/10| Draw 43/20| Italy 21/10


Predictions | Odds

European champions Portugal collide with fellow heavyweights Italy in the Nations League on Monday at Benfica’s Estadio da Luz.

However, it was a quiet summer for the Italians with no World Cup for them to contest for the first time since 1958, meaning now is the time for the Azzurri to show the rest of Europe that they are back with a bang.

Predictions

Italy will be buoyed by the absence of Portugal’s star man Cristiano Ronaldo who has not been selected for the squad by head coach Fernando Santos as he adapts to life at his new club – ironically in Italy with Juventus.

To add further misery for Portugal fans, Italy’s record over their opponents paints a picture of pure dominance.

Portugal’s win over Italy in a June 2015 friendly was the first win in 11 games between the two with the Azzurri winning the previous 10 in a row.

Because of this, expect Italy to have the bit between their teeth and bounce back with a narrow 2-1 win.
