Israel vs Italy by Mudhara_9er

Israel kick off their World Cup 2018 campaign off by hosting European semifinalists Italy.


The Italians will be looking to collect all 3 points as they will battle Spain for the top position in Group G and this will require collecting maximum points against teams that are on paper weaker then themselves.


Both sides come into this match off 3-1 friendly defeats but will both be eager to get the campaign started positively.


Israel lost away to Serbia while Italy were defeated at home by France.


Neither side has major injury concerns.


Israel have a decent home record against smaller countries but when it comes to the big teams it's a completely different story and not much backs them to win today.


Italy on the other hand are major tournament regulars and even when the side looks worn out or in bad shape they always to seem to get a result.


With Conte at Chelsea now the Azzurri will be under the guidance of Giampiero Ventura. The Italians are so big on football and filled with pride the new coach knows he can't afford a defeat in his first competitive match as that would quickly place him under pressure.

Forca Italia! Just like England yesterday. New coach new win. Just easier than Big Sam who had to push it all the way. Moreover, it should have been Italy not Germany the one to progress in the Euro. They would have gone all the way.
