Italy – USA (Pick, Prediction, Preview) Preview

Italy vs USA Prediction & Tips

The UEFA Nations League ended with opaoste sensations forItaly: on the one hand the joy of having found a brilliant game and not being relegated, which is anything but obvious on the eve; on the other the awareness that we could do better if we had finalized all the great amount of game proposed, especially with Portugal, whose qualification to the Final Four, would have been questioned. The United States has not gone to the Russian world championships after 7 consecutive matches and the last victory against a European team (3-2 to Iceland) dates back almost 3 years ago. Probable that Mancini will do some experiments and will launch some useful prospect for the future of Italy: Berardi, De Sciglio, Gagliardini, Lasagna, Politano, Pellegrini, Sirigu and Rugani could find space, while Jorginho / Verratti and Bonucci / Chiellini could be the relay to avoid loss of leadership. CT USA Sarachan, just beaten 3-0 at Wembley, has a young star in the squad: Pulisic of Borussia Dortmund, but also striker Timothy Weah of PSG (son of the great George) and the full-back of Newcastle Yedlin are interesting elements.

Italy is number 19 in the FIFA ranking, the US number 23.

The Azzurri have only lost 4 of their 26 games since September 2016.

The Stars and Stripes national team has not beaten a European team since January 2016.

Italy leads clearly (7-1) in direct clashes.

Midfielder Christian Pulisic is the only USAsquad to play in the Champions League.

Italy will make many changes but it seems that the mentality prevails over the strength of individuals. Finally we will not meet a very strong team, so this time we could check it out.
