Italy vs Finland by Ashjkc
But the question is not about whether Italy will win but rather by how many goals can Italy win. Despite having a literally easy group (finished qualifications table in 1st place), the scores displyed were not convincing at all-
2-1 vs Norway, 1-0 vs Bulgaria, 1-0 Malta, 1-1 Croatia. However, do not be surprised that such scores will continue to occur with this present squad. Conte has at his disposition an aging team, with the likes of Buffon (GK/38), Barzagli (D/34), Bonucci (D/29), Chiellini (d/31), Rossi (M/32), Motta (M/33), Pellè (30/F). Also, many Italian fans are in disagreement over Conte's decision of giving Motta the iconic number 10. Which Italian ragazzo would like to wear a Motta shirt anyway. But the point is that Italy is not proving its worth through convincing wins and I don't expect this fact to change soon with this aging squad. The big positice is that Italy has a very experienced, excellent and mature back in the names of the athletic Chiellini, tactical Bonucci and the tough Barzagli. Scoring goals against these 3 alone seems a mountain to climb in itself and Finland neither has the appropriate squad not the motivation to score against Italy tonight.
Italy does not have the energy it had in 2006 squad with younger Totti, Toni, Del Piero, Inzaghe, Gilardino. Now we are talking about Immobile, zaza and Pelle, who despite being good, are not good enough for the Euros. And my prediction for tonight is that they will win by the slightest margin of 1-0 in full time. You might also try half time correct score 0-0 and under 2.5 goals in full time. Odds have dropped considerably for correct score 1-0 and the market also believes that Italy does not have that firepower to crush Finland, but they will certainly be imposing both in defense and midfield.
Good luck on this
