Italy has done well in the group so far by getting three wins and a draw against Spain.Both teams are having a battle for the first place to secure the promotion.Italy is positioned first with respect to other teams that are 2nd in their own groups.
Italians are having a great form and differently from other seasons, when we see them in a bad form but crawling to a qualification and then actually surprising by beating even the toughest teams, now they are showing great personality and have the ability to punish the opponent more than once.Belotti and Immobile are both in their best form at the moment.
On the other side, Albania, a small country not heard that much about their football but recently they have made a reputation for themselves after qualifying for the first time in their history a Uefa Euro Cup.They have managed to get two wins so far against FYR Macedonia and Liechtenstein, however, they lost at home in a 2-0 defeat against Spain and 3-0 against Israel in a very discussed match where they played with 10 players after the 17th minutes and with 9 players after the 55th minute.They are not a team to underestimate as they shown great personality and strength even in the Europian Cup in France earlier this year, by winning against Romania and losing 2-0 to the Runners-up of the competition France by two goals scored in the 90th minute and 96th minute.In the Euro qualifiers, they also beat the Europe champions Portugal 1-0 in an away from home.
They are a strong defensive team and 6/8 last matches have ended under 2.5 goals.
The only head to head match between these two teams ended 1-0 for the home team, Italy by an own goal in the 82nd minute.
Italy are the favorites in this match of course but in my opinion they will not be able to get to win with more than one goal, Albania are very strong defensively and they still believe that they can qualify for the first World Cup in their history so this will be a really narrow match in my opinion.
Also under 2.5 goals @ 1.80 is a good option.
