Italy vs Greece Saturday 19:45 (UK time)

The perfect record of six victories place Italy at the top of Group J so far, and hardly that can be changed. On Saturday they play against Greece at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Greece disappointed its fans, with its poor performance in this qualifying campaign. With only 1- won game, Greece will pray for a miracle to qualify them on the finals next summer. The host possesses high-class players, which will strive to make a new enjoyable win for their fans.

The facts

Italy

Italy scored 18 goals and received only 3 in 6 games until now. They showed a solid performance in all game stages. In their last 10 games, the Azzurri did not receive more than 1 goal per game. The team is unbeaten in 18 home games and conceded only 7 goals in them. The players, which the team possess such as Bonucci, Chiesa, Immobile, and others will give their best to continue their wonderful performance and to make another win.

Greece

The former European champion Greece won only 1 game in this campaign and definitely the team is in football crisis. The home draw against Lichtenstein on September confirms that opinion. Anyway, in our view, the team has experienced players such as Manolas and Masouras, and if they confirm their high standards, Greece can surprise the home team but will be hard against the motivated Italians.

The Odds

The odds for home team win is priced at 1.20 at bet365. If you think the game will finish as a draw you can find the best odds for that again in bet365 – 7.00.

The away win is priced at 19.00.
