Betting tips & odds comparison 04.06.2022 Italy - Germany

Betting Tip for matchday 1 of the 2022/2023 Nations League A between Italy and Germany. The game will be played at Renato Dall'Ara (Bologna, Italy) on 04.06.2022 at 20:45.

Having endured disappointments following the Euro 2020 triumph, Italy will be looking for solace in the UEFA Nations League when they welcome old foes Germany to Bologna this Saturday for the group A opener.

The reigning Euro champions missed out on qualification for Qatar 2022 world cup and even had Argentina wipe the floor with their faces in their midweek Finalissima match. Germany though have had no such problems having qualified for the world cup with ease.

This should be an intriguing matchup between these two neighbours. Our betting tips today will be from 1xBet and Wazobet

ITALY

It’s been bittersweet moments for Italy in the last year or so. On the one hand, they did well to win the Euro 2020 tournament but that excitement soon turned to disappointment as they faded away in the latter stages of the world cup qualifiers, failed to win their group and were pushed into the playoffs. More pain was to follow as they had to endure the ignominy of losing the playoffs semis to minnows North Macedonia who later lost to Portugal in the final.

This was their second successive absence from the greatest soccer showpiece in the world having also missed out on the 2018 edition and there have been calls for heads to roll from a section of Italian fans, Those calls went a notch higher when they were outclassed in their midweek clash with Argentina at the Finalissima –  a one-off final pitting the Euro and Copa America champions.

With fixtures coming thick and fast, Italy will need to put behind these disappointments and focus on this German assignment as they look to rebuild their shattered ego.

GERMANY

Germany have looked rejuvenated under new coach Hansi Flick. He served under his predecessor when they led Die Mannschaft to World Cup glory back in 2014 and he is therefore quite familiar with the ins and outs of managing the national team.

They were eliminated by Spain in the round-of-16 at the Euro 2020 tournament, much to the chagrin of a highly expectant nation. They however had little problems punching their ticket for the 2022 Qatar World Cup with 9 wins from 10 games in a relatively easy group J.

Flick will be looking to measure the capabilities of his relatively young crop of players through this tournament in a group that has the two Euro finalists as well as Hungary who held them to a 2-2 draw last summer.

ITALY VS GERMANY PREDICTIONS

It’s crazy to imagine that this same Italy team were crowned European Champions less than a year ago. They have fallen from grace to grass in a few short months and they now look like a pale shadow of themselves. They look to be going into a full rebuild mode now. Germany on the other hand seems to be getting it together. They have a great balance of youth and experience in the side. The Germans are unbeaten in nine internationals (W8, D1) coming into this match and haven’t lost to Italy since 2012,  a run of four unbeaten games including their famous win on penalties in the quarter-finals of EURO 2016. We are backing them on the double chance in a game that should see both teams scoring @ 2.31 with Wazobet Bonus for our first tip.


We are staying on the German bandwagon for our second tip too. In this incredible run they have been on, they have played the up-tempo, high pressing style they have been known for over the years. This has seen them dominate possession in just about all the games they play. We expect the same to hold here. 1xBet app have them on a -3 handicap priced @ 1.82 and we feel this is excellent value for our final pick.

We have some great features for you! Check out our banker tip of the day to see where you get tips that are just about assured to land. Don’t miss the latest ones!
