Betting tips Italy vs Germany

Having failed to qualify for the World Cup, morale is very much at a low for Italy and their pain continued on Wednesday in their 3:0 loss against Argentina.

With just 3 wins in their last 10 and just 1 win in their last 5, Italy will need major improvements with visiting Germany arriving in Bologna in great form having won 8 and drawn 1 of their last 9 matches. Germany also scored an impressive 33 goals in those 9 matches.

Typically an entertaining fixture in years gone by, 5 of the last 6 meetings between these nations have seen BTTS although this is their first match since a 0:0 draw back in 2016 and while goals are likely, Germany looks the more likely to claim the points considering the Italians' recent struggles.

As such, we´re backing Germany to pick up at least a point at 1.5 odds on and while Italy will look to improve on their midweek showing against Argentina, we expect an improving Germany to prove too strong with goals at both ends a potentially likely outcome.
