Who will Win the 2020 Euro Cup Finals? Italy or England

The Euro Cup Finals feature two of soccer’s most historic countries meeting in a Finals destined for the ages. Wembley Stadium – England Nation Team’s home stadium plays host to the game that starts at 3:00 PM EST.

The Euro Cup betting odds on this game point towards an evenly matched affair – as well as the team statistics. Italy and England were simply the best two countries in all the tournament, so who will win the game?

The first advantage goes to England because they are playing at home. After witnessing Harry Kane score the go-ahead goal in extra time, the stadium went so loud and raucous the camera could not stop shaking. There will be Italian fans who make the trip, but the English will well outnumber them and make it a hostile environment.

Italy gets the edge when it comes to depth of scoring. While England has Harry Kane (4 goals) and Raheem Sterling (3 goals), Italy had five guys reached the back of the net two times. Whether it is Federico Chiesa, Ciro Immobile, or Lorenzo Insigne – the depth of scoring on the Italian squad has been unmatched this tournament.

The English side gets the advantage in net. Not only did Pickford have more clean sheets than Donnarumma, but he also had more saves (11 to 9). If the game comes down to penalty kicks, having the better keeper during the tournament (albeit by a slim margin) could be the difference-maker.

Where you can find a split is the managers. Both Roberto Mancini (for the Italian team) and Gareth Southgate (for the English team) have done different but nuanced jobs managing their squads to the 2020 Euro Cup Finals. Deciding who will make the best move or make the biggest mistake is a bit of a wash.

Defensively both sides are also quite close. England may have the better group, but the Italy squad has faced some more dangerous teams (especially Belgium) and done a superb job limiting them.

Everything is pointing towards a tight Euro Cup Finals, with both teams having a realistic chance of winning it all. We score the matchup 2-2-1 for England going into the Finals. The crowd at Wembley and the production from Harry Kane (even if Italy has more depth) – who should win the top scorer and best player award – give England the edge entering the Finals.

The bookmakers at Sports Interaction (SIA) have cut half a goal off the total to set the line at 2.0 goals. While getting a line that low usually means we hammer the over, judging by these two teams, we are not sure.

Both clubs have great keepers and depth on defence. Neither side has allowed more than one goal in a game. The 2.0 goal total also guarantees a push if the match goes to penalty kicks tied 1-1 or someone wins 2-0.  Lastly, both teams, as good as their offences are, did not lead the tournament in goods scored per match. It seems two goals is a good bet for a high-scoring Finals, with a 1-0 win by either side the most likely outcome.
