Italy grew in confidence throughout their opening win over Denmark and can follow up by beating the Czech Republic at the European Under-21 Championship.
There has clearly been a big effort to do well at this tournament prior to hosting the next renewal in 2019.
Looking at the Czech Republic U21 vs Italy U21 odds, the young Azzurri appeal at 7/5 to win to nil again in Tychy.
A Look At Czech Republic U21 Betting Odds
There were no complaints from the Czech Republic camp after they were outgunned by Germany on Sunday, eventually going down 2-0.
Head coach Vitezslav Lavicka said: “I think we started well, tried to push our opponents and created some chances. But they eventually took control of the game.”
The margin of defeat could have been even more significant if Lukas Zima hadn’t saved a Davie Selke penalty, while Germany wasted other good chances.
Having kept seven clean sheets in 10 qualifying games, Italy look a solid pick for another 2-0 success at 23/4.
A Look At Italy U21 Betting Odds
Italy had failed to make it past the group stage five times in the last six tournaments, so it was understandable to see them start cautiously against Denmark.
However, Luigi Di Biagio’s side started to look more like the teams of old that earned a record five wins in this competition after Lorenzo Pellegrini struck with a spectacular overhead kick.
Di Biagio told UEFA: “In the first half, we backed down a little bit. At half-time, I told my players to find the right balance and not get nervous.
“The pace in the second half was a lot better and enabled us to achieve a very good result. My team is full of talent and I’m really confident, but we still have to improve our style of playing.”
We’re following a similar pattern with our Czech Republic U21 vs Italy U21 betting tips by taking 16/5 for draw half-time, Italy full-time.
