Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Nations League
Italy and Portugal will fight in the First Division. The match is quite important and the hosts are demonstrating quite good results recently.
Roberto Mancini’s players take only the second place in the group but at first the draw 1:1 and then the victory with the score 1:0 over Poland made it possible to save positions in elite Division A.
Not so long ago Italy has tied the control meeting with the Ukraine (1:1) though it possessed the ball for 66% of time and 20 times shot on target.
The national team didn’t get on the World Cup.
Portugal failed on the FIFA World Cup, having left the tournament at the first stage of the playoffs.
After that the national team seems to be confident – friendly matches against Croatia (1:1) and Scotland (3:1) were spent at the high level.
In the Nations League Fernando Santos team won both matches with the difference in one ball.
The match against Poland was very productive, teams managed to score five times.
It seems that Italians are improving themselves but Portuguese aren’t very simple, but the truth is that without Ronaldo it will be much more difficult to gain the victory.
Both teams are very disciplined and strong. We believe that the draw is quite possible here.
Our tip: draw in the 1st half – odds 2.1 Pinnacle
