Online soccer predictions that win for Italy – Wales
One of the contenders for the trophy Italy face Wales at the Stadio Olimpico in a match from Group B of the Euro 2020. It’s a good thing you’re here, now stay tuned for our online soccer predictions that win. Let’s get to work!
Italy are one of the most convincing team since the beginning of the European Championship. The Azzurri won both of their games so far with the same result – 3-0. They showed some impressive levels, team chemistry and efficiency in attack which makes us think they are major contenders for the gold medals. Roberto Mancini’s work since he was appointed as the head coach is just outstanding.
Mancini didn’t do things much different against Switzerland compared to the opening game against Turkey. And he didn’t have any reasons to – you don’t fix it when it’s working, right? His 4-3-3 formation once again offered a balanced performance which isolated the Swiss team and didn’t allow them to react to anything that was happening. Sassuolo’s midfielder Manuel Locatelli played one of his best games for the national team and scored a brace while Ciro Immobile his second goal in the competition.
For a second consecutive game Roberto Mancini picked Domenico Berardi in the line-up which left Federico Chiesa and Filippo Bernardeschi on the bench. Chiesa entered the pitch in the second half alongside Acerbi, Toloi, Pessina and Cristante.
What worries the Azzurri right now is the condition of Giorgio Chiellini. The experienced defender left the pitch against Switzerland injured, so he was replaced by Francesco Acerbi. Chiellini is going to miss the next game against Wales, and it’s still not clear if he’s going to be ready for the beginning of the knockout phase. Acerbi is going to replace him against Wales, but surely Chiellini would be massively missed in the 1/8-finals. He’s one of the best Italian defenders at the moment, and his partnership with Leonardo Bonucci have been proven with time.
Italy already qualified for the 1/8-finals, but they are just two points ahead of Wales, so they are not guaranteed winning the first place in the group. This means that Roberto Mancini can’t make too many experiments or rotations for the next game. We expect that he’s going to use his best XI once again. The only absentee would be the injured Giorgio Chiellini.
The Italian fans still expect the return of Marco Verratti. The star midfielder missed the first two matches in the group as he’s still recovering from his latest injury. According to some informations, though, Verratti could be really close to playing again. This would be a massive boost for Italy as he’s one of arguably the best midfielders in the game today. Verratti’s return will make the Italians even stronger and an even bigger contender for the title. Mancini has a real ace in his sleeve here.
Five years since they reached the 1/2-finals of the European Championship, Wales are once again impressing with their performance in the competition. We all thought that the absence of the manager Ryan Giggs will hurt them pretty badly, but so far the players are not showing any signs of slowing down. The Dragons are unbeaten in their first two matches and won four points. They also conceded just one goal in 180 minutes of play so far in the tournament.
Few days ago Wales celebrated their first win at the Euro 2020. Rob Page’s team faced Turkey in Baku and enjoyed a 2-0 win against the Crescent Stars. Aaron Ramsey opened the score at the end of the first half while Connor Roberts executed a great assist from Gareth Bale in the last few minutes of the match. Bale missed a penalty kick as well, but he found a way to fix his mistake with that great assist for Roberts in the 95th minute.
Once again Robert Page’s 4-5-1 formation worked well for the Dragons. Wales felt comfortable on the pitch and used the weaknesses of the Turkish team in their favour. Gareth Bale and Daniel James created trouble from the flanks while Joe Allen, Aaron Ramsey and Joseff Morrell did enough to control the midfield area. Turkey were left just helpless on the pitch because of the solid Welsh performance at the Baku Olimpiya Stadionu in the capital of Azerbaijan.
At this moment Rob Page doesn’t have a reason to make any changes in his line-up for the third game in the group. Kieffer Moore should be leading the attack once again while Chris Mepham and Joe Rodon should be at the heart of the defense again. Ben Davies and Connor Roberts should take their places at the two flanks of the defensive line.
Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey should be the main men against Italy. They are the players with the most experience at the highest levels, and the players who had met such an opposition before. Ramsey and Bale are the stars who must lead this Welsh team by example.
It’s a pretty logical thing to say that Italy are favorites against Wales on Sunday. The Azzurri have won the European Championship just once in their history so far and they are motivated to use this moment to achieve another triumph. The Italians lost two finals in the last 20 years, so they are aware that this team is strong enough to make the nation celebrate. They were dominant in their first two games, and they have enough reasons to avoid underestimating this third match in the group – the stake is the first place.
That’s the online soccer predictions that win for the Euro 2020 match between Italy and Wales from Group A. Too few people believe that the Welsh team can trouble the Azzurri, but careful with Wales – they are unbeaten in their first two matches at the European Championship, and showed some good levels so far. They remain underdogs in this clash, but it doesn’t mean we should completely write them off here.
