Italy vs Austria, EURO Round of Sixteen, 26.06.2021
Italy has been fantastic, with wonderful team spirit, and they appear to be extremely sure that they can win this tournament. They’ve generated a lot of opportunities while only giving up a couple. They advanced to the round of 16 after winning all of their group matches.
Austria qualified for the playoffs with victories against Ukraine and North Macedonia.
This bodes well for an exciting clash, and we will look at Mr. Play Sports registration bonus and prices for our betting suggestions in this preview.
Italy entered this tournament as a dark horse to win the trophy, but they have now been elevated to the position of real contenders. They were one of the most outstanding teams at this year’s competition, cruising through the group stages with three consecutive wins without allowing a goal. They won 3-0 against Turkey and Switzerland before losing 1-0 to Wales with a much-changed lineup.
They are now undefeated in 30 games, which is the joint-longest streak in club history. They would want to safeguard that streak as they pursue the first European trophy since 1968.
Austria finished second in their pool, trailing only the Netherlands, after overcoming North Macedonia 3-1 and Ukraine 1-0 before falling to the Dutch 2-0. In the first stage of the European Championship, they had 6 points with a total of 4 goals scored while allowing 3 goals to their opponents.
Austria has never even made it to the final of a European Championship. As a result, supporters anticipate a mediocre competitive campaign at best. They will be aiming to make a name for themselves.
Possible Line Ups

ITALY VS AUSTRIA BETTING TIPS
Italy was the dark horse when they began their EURO 2020 campaign, and we have seen them do exceptionally well in the group stages. Austria also outperformed itself, and we anticipate a really interesting encounter between the two. We had over 2.5 goals been scored in four of Italy’s last five games, with the Italians winning both of their group games by a combined score of three goals to zero. On the other hand, over 3.5 goals were scored in two of Austria’s last six international matches, including a 4-0 loss against Denmark. Additional reason as to why we expect goals in this game is that at least three goals have been scored in four of the last six meetings between these two countries. We are therefore backing Over 2.5 goals @ 2.15 as the best of our bet tips today.
