2016 UEFA European Championship: Euro 2016 Italy vs Ireland Prediction, Preview and Betting Tips
Italy will face Republic of Ireland in their Euro 2016 final game on Wednesday evening at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille in France, with Italy hoping to secure at-least one point in order to seal the top spot of Group E while Ireland aiming to win this game in order to avoid their elimination.
Italy are on a good run of form this season and have already qualified in the last 16 of the European Championship after defeating Sweden 1-0 in the last minute of their second group stage match. Italy are likely to play in their usual 3-5-2 formation, organizing good defence and solid offence in the game. The club will rest a few players as they only need a draw to sit at the top spot in their group. Italy are playing without Bonucci, Chiellini, Eder and Daniele De Rossi as all players are just a yellow card away from suspension. Gianluigi Buffon and Antonio Candreva are also likely to miss this game due to injuries.
Ireland are in a terrible form for the last couple of months and are currently sitting at the bottom of the group with just one point. Ireland started their campaign with a 1-1 draw over Sweden in their opening match and then faced another defeat against Belgium 3-0 in their second game in Bordeaux on Saturday. Ireland are likely to miss Jon Walters due to an Achilles injury.
Italy are stronger than Ireland in all areas of the game and are clear favorites to win this match. We predict Italy will register a simple victory here.
Italy: Sirigu, De Sciglio, Barzagli, Ogbonna, Darmian, Bernardeschi, Thiago Motta, Sturaro, El Shaarawy, Zaza, Immobile.
Republic of Ireland: Randolph, Coleman, Oâ€™Shea, Duffy, Brady, Hendrick, Whelan, Quinn, Hoolahan, Murphy, Long.
