Azzurri to end winless run

297

It has hardly been a vintage time for Italian football but they can end their winless run in tonight’s friendly against Ukraine.

Italy to win and both teams to score @ 14/5

Missing out on the World Cup prompted fresh change for the Azzurri but Roberto Mancini is still searching for his best combinations.

A 1-1 home draw against Poland and a 1-0 defeat in Portugal represented a mixed start to the Nations League and a trip to Chorzow to face the Poles is next on that particular agenda.

Tonight’s clash with Ukraine in Genoa can help them end a run of four without a win but the Italians will need to be careful against an improving Yellow-Blue who are still to lose in 2018 and seem inspired by the presence of the iconic Andriy Shevchenko in their dugout.

Their strength is undoubtedly in the wide areas where Andriy Yarmolenko and Yevhen Konoplyanka often wreak havoc.

Ukraine do give you a chance at the back though, so an Italy win and both to score seems an excellent price.

Giorgi to win 2-0 @ 10/13

Camila Giorgi has been showing some decent form of late and should have no issues against Jil Teichmann in the late match at the WTA Linz.

The world number 32 opened her campaign with a straight sets win over Pauline Parmentier and seems to be growing in confidence after also defeating Australian Open winner Caroline Wozniacki in Tokyo, only to fall to US Open champion Naomi Osaka.

Teichmann herself is on a three-match winning run but does not share fifth seed Giorgi’s quality and is unlikely to truly test her.
