  • Date: 16th November 2022
  • Kickoff: 21:45 CET
  • Venue: Air Albania Stadium

All eyes will be on the Air Albania Stadium on Wednesday night as Albania and Italy meet in a crucial friendly. The hosts will be looking to get back on the winning track after failing to win any of their last five competitive matches. However, Albania scored exactly one goal in each of those matches, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Edoardo Reja's men score on Wednesday.

The visitors, on the other hand, will go into this match full of confidence after back to back wins in the Nations League without conceding a goal. However, the Gli Azzurri have been struggling in the final third lately, scoring less than 1.5 goals in seven of their last 13 matches in all competitions. Seven of Italy's last 10 games ended with less than 2.5 goals, but with the return of striker Ciro Immobile from injury, things could change on Wednesday.

Albania vs Italy Betting Tips: Away win

With three wins from the last three meetings between these two teams, the Italians go into this match as favorites and we see nothing other than an away win.

However, the hosts have been providing some offensive danger lately, so we expect them to score what would be their first goal in four meetings with Italy.

  • Best Tip: Away win
  • Albania vs Italy prediction: 1-2

Albania will have to do without Endri Cekici, who suffered a hamstring injury earlier this month. The midfielder, who has scored two goals in 8 games in the Turkish Süper Lig this season, is not expected to return to action until after the World Cup.

The hosts had to do without Keidi Bare for the 1-1 draw against Iceland in September, but the Espanyol player has recovered from his injury and could be involved on Wednesday.

Sampdoria Manolo Gabbiadini featured for Italy for the first time in five years in the Nations League win over Hungary last time out and would be hoping for another opportunity here.

Marco Verratti, Sandro Tonali and Matteo Politano were all missing from that game due to injury, but the three have recovered from their injuries and should be available for this match.

Lorenzo Pellegrini was also absent from that game and will not be available on Wednesday again after picking up a muscle injury in last week's Serie A game with Lazio.
