TODAY'S BEST BET | OCTOBER 6
We’re off to the UEFA Nations League for today’s best bet as reigning European champions Italy play host to Spain in the semi-finals at the San Siro.
Italy are gunning for the rare achievement of winning two international trophies in the space of a few months and we’re backing them to get thee job done at home over Spain.
Currently riding a world record unbeaten streak of 37 straight matches, Italy – if that wasn’t intimidating enough – have only conceded one goal in their last 10 home fixtures, winning nine of those games.
Italy have also been supremely dominant over Spain at home – they haven’t lost to ‘La Roja’ on their own turf since 1971.
Spain also haven’t been setting the world on fire recently – at least when it comes to facing the world’s elite.
Indeed, Spain are winless in their last four meetings with teams ranked inside FIFA’s top 10, while they have also lost two of their last three fixtures on foreign soil.
Spain’s last two wins were over Kosovo and Georgia – and their last game before those was a 2-1 loss to Sweden in World Cup qualifying. That followed their elimination at the hands of Italy in the Euro 2020 semi-finals – a tournament where they failed to beat the likes of Sweden and Poland in the group stages.
Italy have been the better team over the last couple of years, are coming off a Euro 2020 triumph and have only conceded one goal in their last 10 home fixtures. They look good to preserve their 50-year home unbeaten run vs Spain and we’re confident they can prevail in 90 minutes.
- Italy are unbeaten vs Spain in four of their last five meetings
