Game should open up with Italy under pressure to win

The England win/both teams to score double clicked in the reverse fixture in Naples back in March, when the men with three lions on their shirts prevailed 2-1.

If that game was more open than expected given the Italians’ notorious pedigree for pragmatism, the rematch should be a more attacking affair again.

The Azurri and Ukraine are level on 10 points, three points behind England and play each other in a Ukrainian ‘home game’ in the final round of group C fixtures.

Gareth Southgate’s side, meanwhile, can effectively seal top spot in the section with a win as it would mean they’d have superior head-to-head records against both nations.

In an open game England are taken to have the superior attacking individuals capable of creating and consuming more chances.

Goalscoring Inter midfielder has been in prolific form the Azzurri

The expectation is that there will be goals at both ends in this clash and the name of Internazionale midfielder Davide Fratesi instantly stands out at the odds among his compatriots.

Fratesi played his way into the national team on the back of a seven-goal season for Sassuolo last term and has quickly set about chipping in with more strikes for the Azzurri.

The 24-year-old has struck four times in his last three games for Luciano Spalletti’s outfit and notched against Malta last time out despite only coming on for the last 25 minutes.
