Italy vs Albania Tips


Italy arrive for their first Euro 2024 match looking to get off to a winning start in their bid to win the Euros for a second tournament in a row.

  • Head To Head
  • Italy Form 
  • Albania Form 

Albania are the big underdogs in Group B, with Italy, Croatia and Spain all vying for position on the ladder alongside them. 

  • Italy have won three of their last four (D1)
  • The Italians have kept a clean sheet in their last three matches
  • Albania have lost two of their last four 
  • Albania have failed to score in three of their last five 

Head To Head


The pair have met four times in total, with Italy winning each meeting, while they have won to nil on three occasions. 

Italy Form 


Italy come into Euro 2024 looking as miserly at the back as usual, with the side boasting four clean sheets in their last five matches. 

Following a triumphant run at Euro 2020, Italy are looking to defend the crown they secured last time out. However, they must first try to work their way through a tough group that also includes Spain and Croatia. 

A win in arguably their simplest game in the group is vital, and I am backing their defence to hold out for a crucial clean sheet and a win. 

Albania Form 


Albania have drawn the short straw at Euro 2024, with their group containing three very strong sides in Italy Spain and Croatia. 

Wins over Liechtenstein (3-0) and Azerbaijan (3-1) have set Albania up well for this one, but the quality of opponents really jumps up between their final friendly and their first group game. 

Honestly, Albania will likely target picking up a single point at Euro 2024, with the likelihood of the side winning any games very small. 

Verdict

I am backing Italy to get their Euro 2024 campaign off to a winning start as they secure a win to nil over Albania.
