Austria vs Italy
Austria will be looking for another win after the 0-1 International Friendlies victory over Andorra.
The only scorer from Austria was Marko Arnautović (87').
It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Austria have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Austria have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 10 goals in the process.
Italy come into this encounter following a 1-3 International Friendlies win in the defeat of Albania in their previous game.
For Italy, goals were scored by Giovanni Di Lorenzo (20') and Vincenzo Grifo (25', 64'). Ardian Ismajli (16') scored for Albania.
During their six latest matches, Roberto Mancini's Italy have found the back of the net 9 times therefore earning them a goals scored per game average of 1.5.
Our assessment here is that Austria will do well to see themselves scoring against this Italy lineup who we think will score at least once to gain the upper hand.
That’s why we have predicted a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 win for Italy when the referee blows for full-time.
