Italy vs England: Tips and prediction – 31.03.2015

By on April 1, 2015
Italy and England will face each other in a very interesting friendly today from 19:45, UK Time. These two sides were in the same group at World Cup 2014, but they were eliminated by Costa Rica and Uruguay at that time.

Italy are coming after a good run, without defeat in the past seven games, recording five wins and two draws in this time, looking forward to Euro 2016 already. The italians are undefeated in their last 11 home matches, ticking only five wins and no fewer than six draws. Perin, Pasqual, Marchisio and Buffon are all injured, so Sirigu will start in goal.
Italy probable lineup: Sirigu – Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, Candreva, Verratti, Parolo, Darmian – Vazquez, Eder, Immobile.
Italy missing players: Perin, Pasqual, Marchisio, Buffon.

On the other hand, England are coming after an impressive run too, with seven wins in the past seven games after WC 2014. They have no concern in the Euro 2016 Qualifications, proof that they won all five games so far. Henderson and his teammates managed to win the past three trips too, 2-0 in Switzerland, 1-0 in Estonia and 3-1 in Scotland, all three being played in 2014.
England probable lineup: Hart – Walker, Smalling, Jagielka, Gibbs – Henderson, Carrick, Delph – Barkley – Kane, Rooney.
England missing players: Welbeck, Milner, Sterling, Baines.
