UEFA Euro 2024 will take place next summer and the road to qualifying for that tournament continues this week with the latest international break. As clubs across the continent hit the pause button on their domestic leagues, plenty of countries will be hoping to edge closer to the finals. Today, we’ll be taking a look at what should be a fun encounter between England and Italy.England Form Guide
England fans are desperate to get their hands on a piece of silverware and after falling short at the World Cup, they’ll hope they can get the job done when they head to Germany next summer - but the Three Lions often seem cursed at the elite level. Gareth Southgate is being given the chance to lead them forward once again but if they can’t pull it off this time, serious questions will need to be asked.Italy Form Guide
They may be the reigning European champions, but the Italian national team have to focus on working hard to repair their image. They failed to qualify for the World Cup and as such, they need to remind fans that they are still an elite team within the continent. It’s not going to happen overnight, but gradually picking up points on the road to qualification will certainly help improve morale.Match Prediction
This is a fixture with a great deal of history and we expect the home crowd to be absolutely buzzing with revenge being on their mind. Whether or not they’ll get it is a different matter altogether, but one thing we’re confident in saying is that over 2.5 goals will be scored.
