Euro 2020 Final Tip: Italy v England
It doesn't get any bigger than this. With Kane and Sterling occupying Italian defenders, could this be the day an Arsenal teenager becomes a legend?
Wembley stayed calm when Denmark took a first half lead on Wednesday, but don’t expect a similar reaction if Italy strike first. The Azzurri know how to kill a match but, to be fair, England have shown unusual levels of control as well.
So First Goalscorer is a premium market for this European Championship Final and we’re backing a shock - Bukayo Saka at 12/1 each-way with PaddyPower.
Tactically, we should expect Kane to occupy Chiellini and Bonucci, and vice-versa; the Italians will press high so any space England can get is likely to come down the flanks.
Sterling and Saka have the pace to run in from wide areas for shots of their own and at the prices, the Arsenal unicorn fanatic is an interesting underdog. Mancini may rue the loss of Spinazzola at left back, and this is the space Saka may attack with relish.
If he scores one of goals 2-5 instead, we get paid out at 1/3rd odds.
