Best football tips for today
We love the UEFA Nations League because it offers some real European classics. One of them we are going to see again on Saturday. England will host Italy at the Molineux little less than a year after the Euro 2020 final. Let’s preview it in our best football tips for today.
England’s situation in this group is a bit complicated. The Three Lions didn’t have a great start as they are currently 4th in the standings with just one point won. On Tuesday the Brits faced Germany at the Allianz Arena and at least got a point after a 1-1 draw.
England were close to losing this game, but Harry Kane saved the team with a late penalty kick in the 88th minute. For Tottenham Hotspur’s striker it was his 50th goal for the national team. Now Kane is just three goals behind England’s all time top scorer Wayne Rooney who has 53.
Italy are hungry for some Nations League success after shockingly failing to reach the World Cup in December. The European champions have to redeem themselves in front of the fans and winning this tournament is a good way to do it.
Right now the Azzurri are leading the standings with 4 points from the first two matches. Roberto Mancini’s team achieved its first win on Tuesday when they faced Hungary at home. The Italians scored both of their goals in the first half when Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Pellegrini put the ball in the net.
Mancini took a brave decision and let the 18-years old Wilfried Gnonto to play the whole 90 minutes against Hungary. The talented winger made a key assist against Germany last week so now he won Mancini’s trust.
That’s the best football tips for today for the Nations League derby between England and Italy on Saturday. Let’s see how the classic will end this time.
