Euro 2020 Final - James Capps' 8/1 Bet Builder: Italy vs England


England are on the cusp of major glory for the first time since 1966 but they arguably face the most impressive side of the tournament in Roberto Mancini’s Italy. 

The Azzurri have only won this competition once, though, and have lost their last two Euro finals.  

And I’m hoping for the same again with my 8/1 bet builder

  • Under 2.5 goals
  • Marco Verratti to be booked
  • England to lift the trophy

Claim 16/1 Italy OR 15/1 England to win the Euro 2020 Final

Under 2.5 goals 

England have only conceded once all tournament and I’m not convinced their pragmatic style will breed many goals against an Italian side that are notoriously tough defensively. 

This fixture also doesn’t tend to provide many goals, with seven of the last ten meetings between the two seeing under 2.5 goals. 

Marco Verratti to be booked

The PSG midfielder picked up a yellow card in the quarter-final win against Belgium and is the sort of player who is happy to take one for the team if he senses a dangerous counter-attack.

The 28-year-old has picked up a further eleven bookings during the course of the domestic campaign, so he isn’t going to be far away from the referee’s notebook at Wembley. 

England to lift the trophy

I mean, I’d probably have to turn in my English citizenship if I tipped anything other than this. 

With home advantage and a rock-solid defence, I think England have just enough to go and clinch this one. Italy have had to endure some gruelling battles over the course of the knockout rounds and this slightly fresher Three Lions outfit have the goods to deal with the Azzurri’s attacking threat.
