England v Italy Euro 2024 qualifier predictions: Tips, odds and team news
England and Italy face off in a Euro 2024 qualifying showdown at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday (7:45pm, UK time).
England vs Italy odds
Nothing can be settled in Group C on matchday seven, but a win for England here would all but confirm their place at Euro 2024. Gareth Southgate’s side are currently on a seven game unbeaten run including friendlies, having beaten a spirited Australia side 1-0 at Wembley thanks to Ollie Watkins’ third international goal.
The Three Lions inflicted Italy’s only defeat in qualifying so far in the reverse fixture with goals from Declan Rice and Harry Kane, who became England’s all-time record goalscorer with a well taken penalty. The Italians are now under new management however, with Luciano Spalletti taking over from Roberto Mancini and things have picked up, winning three and drawing one of their last four matches.
They now sit just three points behind England here and a win here would see the table become incredibly interesting heading into the last few matches, with Ukraine also waiting for a slip up on 10 points.
Euro 2024 qualifying Group C table
- England: 5 games, 13 points
- Italy: 5 games, 10 points
- Ukraine: 6 games, 10 points
- North Macedonia: 6 games, 7 points
- Malta: 6 games, 0 points

|Jordan Pickford, Harry Maguire, Kyle Walker, Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Harry Kane||Luke Shaw, Ben Chillwell, Bukayo Saka||–|
Following their scrappy 1-0 win over Australia there’s expectation of wholesale changes to England’s starting lineup. Jordan Pickford should return in goal after Sam Johnstone made it four clean sheets in four England matches, with Harry Maguire, Kyle Walker, Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane expected to come back into Gareth Southgate’s side.
Italy team news
|–||Sandro Tonali, Nicolo Zaniolo, Ciro Immobile, Federico Chiesa, Gianluca Scamacca||–|
Luciano Spalletti meanwhile boasts a squad with only Gianluigi Donnarumma having collected more than 50 international caps. Nicolò Barella is the Azzurri’s most prolific scorer with eight goals. Sandro Tonali and Nicolo Zaniolo’s off-field problems mean they miss out again and join Ciro Immobile, Federico Chiesa and Gianluca Scamacca on the sidelines.
