  • Competition: Euro U19 Championship Qualifiers
  • Date: 20th March 2024
  • Kickoff: 14:00 UTC / 15:00 CET
  • Venue: Stadio G. Teghil

Scotland U19 and Italy U19 go head to head in Lignano Sabbiadoro on Wednesday afternoon with both nations looking to kick start their European Under-19 Championship qualifying campaign on a high.

The Tartan Army juniors go into Wednesday's game on the back of a confidence boosting 4-0 win over Latvia U19s in a friendly last weekend. Billy Stark's side have now scored at least two goals in three of their last four games and a similar result on Wednesday may see them start their Euro U19 qualifying campaign on a winning note.

The Italian U19s were also on the winning side in their last game as they thrashed Austria U19s 3-0. The win ended a run of three consecutive games without a win and clean sheet in all competitions but the question is whether that performance can be replicated on Wednesday.

Scotland U19 vs Italy U19 Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

The only meeting between these two sides some seven years ago ended in a goalless draw, but I expect a different result this time around.

Scotland U19s have looked very unsettled defensively in recent games, keeping a clean sheet just once in their last four games. Three of those games ended with over 2.5 goals.

The Italian U19s' last few games have also been very entertaining. At least three goals were seen in each of their last three outings and I expect a similar result on Wednesday.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • Scotland U19 vs Italy U19 prediction: 2-2
