Italy vs Bosnia & Herzegovina Team Overview 

Italy

Luciano Spalletti will be tasked with Italy’s defence of the European Championship this summer, but building momentum could be key to any aspirations of retaining their Wembley 2021 crown. The Azzurri face one of the most daunting tasks at the EUROs this summer after being drawn alongside Spain and Croatia in the opening round.

It has been a mixed first year in the job for the former Napoli boss. Italy has played out draws away from home against North Macedonia and Ukraine while also losing at Wembley against England. However, momentum is already building this year following wins in the U.S. against Venezuela and Ecuador. 

They’ll head into this clash as the standout pick for any Italy vs Bosnia & Herzegovina prediction. 

Bosnia & Herzegovina 

It has been a testing period for the Bosnian team, with Sergej Barbarez offering a fresh dugout perspective. The new coach oversaw his first ever match at the helm against England on Monday, and he would have been quietly optimistic surrounding their future chances of qualifying for a major tournament. Bosnia managed to keep the red-hot EURO favourites at bay until the deadlock was broken from the penalty spot after an hour.

However, his job prospects will likely not hinge on battling displays against the better national sides in the world, as Bosnia will be looking for improvement when their World Cup qualification campaign gets underway. But, the team comes into the fixtures this week licking their wounds after losing each of their last five matches.

Italy vs Bosnia & Herzegovina Prediction 

  • Pick: Italy & Under 2.5 Goals
  • Odds: 1.35 (22bet)

Bosnia will have taken huge heart from their resolute rearguard display against England on Monday, potentially unlocking an avenue for value when weighing up an Italy vs Bosnia & Herzegovina prediction this week.

While we expect Italy to claim victory on home soil, they haven’t exactly been free-scoring over the last 12 months. They have netted just four goals across their last three internationals, and they have only scored more than twice in a match on just one occasion in their last five. 

Italy vs Bosnia & Herzegovina Prediction, Betting Tip

  • Pick: Mateo Retegui To Score
  • Odds: 2.3 (22bet)

Scoring goals will be the biggest issue that Italy encounters at the EUROs this summer, but they could have a potential secret weapon in the form of Mateo Retegui. 

The Argentinean-born forward has a fine record for Italy after netting four in seven matches, and he will likely be given a start in this match in Empoli to press home his claims for a start in Italy’s opening match in Germany.
