Switzerland national team is showing great results, but team will now face a serious challenge. Italy national team confirmed the status of a favourite of this tournament in the first game. This match will be held in Rome, which will be a huge motivation boost for Nerrazzuri. We think that hosts will secure a confident victory at their home stadium.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) on Italy
In the first game Italy performed wonderful in the offense. We think that they won't have more problems than in the previous game. Visitors' defense is not looking good now, so they won't contain Squadra Azzurra.
Our second bet is on total over 2.5 goals
If you want to take the risk, you can place a bet on Italy to win with a two goal margin
