Portugalia vs Italy Prediction Today
This game will mark the debut of the Portuguese in the UEFA Nations League and will surely want to start the campaign with a victory to occupy the first position of the group since Italy and Poland have taken the chess draw with the score of 1-1 Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.Friday night, I saw a new face of the Squadra Azzura headed by the new Roberto Mancini. He made several changes giving Mario Balotelli the chance to lead the attack line.
Super Mario could not find the net of the side against the solid Polish defensive, but in the 78th Century Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho managed to score a goal in the penalty, thus canceling the advantage of Poland that opened the score by Piotr Zielinski.Italy dominated almost all direct confrontations with Portugal. Azzurri won 17 times, pulled 2 draws and lost only 4 times in the 24 matches with Portugal. The latest confrontation took place in 2015 when the two teams met in a friendly match ended with the 1-0 victory of the protesters.

Fernando Santos made a lot of rotation in his friendly team with Croatia on Friday against the base team with which he presented himself at the World Cup in Russia.Cristiano Ronaldo decided to stay at home and look for a good form at Juventus, while the attack line was led by Valencia’s new striker Andre Silva.Neither Ricardo Quaresma was called, to the detriment of new names such as Pizzi and Ruben Neves who were responsible for creating the stages of attack alongside the Manchester City player, Bernardo Silva.Thus, Portugal drew 1-1 in front of Croatia, in a match with many goals on both gates.
Fernando Santos’s students generally played a football based on the attack book (here the first game that comes to my mind is being drawn with a score of 3-3 against Spain from the World Cup) and I would not be surprised if we will have another playing with many goals on Estadio da Luz, when they will host the Italians. Therefore, over 1.5 goals scored at 1.50 is the best betting option here!
