England vs Italy Betting PreviewEngland defeated Denmark 2-1 in the semis following a tough battle, with Harry Kane scoring the deciding goal on penalty during extra time. The Three Lions hit back after conceding the first goal in the tournament as they kept five consecutive clean sheets in the first five games. Gareth Southgate's men ended the group stage with 7 points, having beaten Croatia and Czech Republic 1-0 and recorded a goalless draw against Scotland. In knockout stage, England also defeated Germany (2-0 at Wembley) and Ukraine (4-0 in Rome).
Italy beat Spain in the semifinals a thrilling penalty shootout on Wednesday after regular and extra-time ended with a 1-1 scoreline. This mens that the Azzurri are undefeated in their last 33 matches. Their last defeat came all the way back in September 2018. Prior to the Spain game, Roberto Mancini's men won all three group stage matches - against Turkey, Switzerland and Wales - beat Austria 2-1 in extra time and Belgium 2-1 in the quarter finals. Despite being rock solid at the back (with only 2 goals conceded in regular time), they have scored 12 goals so far, becoming one of the best attacks in the history of the European Championship.
These two teams last met in a friendly in 2018 that ended in a 1-1 draw. Overall, the Azzurri have an 11-8 advantage over the Three Lions, with 8 draws in 27 direct encounters.
England have lost their last two matchups against Italy at major international tournaments. The last tournament game — during the 2014 World Cup group stage — ended with a 2-1 Italian victory. The match before that took place at the 2012 Euro quarterfinals, which Italy won in penalties.
Best OddsThe Three Lions are slightly favourites to win this final in 90 minutes with Bet365 offering 7/4 for England to win. GentingBet offer 21/10 for the draw while "Italy to win" is backable at 41/20 with Unibet.

Probable Line-UpsEngland (3-4-3): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Trippier, Rice, Phillips, Shaw; Saka, Sterling, Kane
Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka was fit enough to start against Denmark and he is expected to retain his berth as left winger. Raheem Sterling will play on the other flank with Harry Kane spearheding the attack as usual. Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips will anchor the midfield once again while a return to a three-man backline would see Mason Mount dropping on the bench. Kyle Walker will play as centre back alongside Harry Maguire and John Stones, while Kieran Trippier and Luke Shaw will start as wing backs. The likes of Reece James, Jordan Henderson, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden provide plenty of options for Southgate around the pitch.
Italy (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Emerson, Bonucci, Chiellini, Di Lorenzo; Verratti, Jorginho, Barella; Chiesa, Insigne, Berardi
Right back Alessandro Florenzi is doubtful and left back Leonardo Spinazzola is injured. As a result, Emerson Palmieri and Giovanni Di Lorenzo should start as full backs. Niccolo Barella, Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Chiesa were exhausted and subbed off against Spain but they are all expected to feature from the off. Ciro Immobile had another disappointing night and Mancini could give Andrea Belotti a rare start or play with Insigne as false nine. The centre-back pair will be formed by Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini as usual, while Marco Verratti and Jorginho will retain their berth in midfield.
