England Women vs. Italy Women Betting Tips: Lionesses can extend unbeaten streak to 28 matches
England Women will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to 28 matches under manager Sarina Wiegman when they take on Italy in the Arnold Clark Cup on Sunday afternoon (3.15pm, ITV 1).
The Lionesses swatted aside the challenge of South Korea on Thursday in a comprehensive 4-0 win in their opening Arnold Clark Cup match, while Italy suffered an injury-time 2-1 defeat to Belgium.
Below we pick out two bets for England vs Italy which will take place at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

England were excellent in the 4-0 demolition of South Korea who had only lost two of their last 14 matches.
Thursday's victory extended their unbeaten run to 27 matches, stretching all the way back to September 2021.
The Lionesses have won a whopping 23 of those games and I fully expect them to bag another victory on Sunday against an Italy side that have lost their last four in a row and six of the last nine.
England are unsurprisingly a short price, but there's a little more value to be had at 10/11 in the -1 Handicap (BoyleSports) market, a bet which has landed 18 times during Wiegman's tenure.
Chelsea's Lauren James put on a sparkling display in the 4-0 win, which she rounded off with a well-deserved first goal for her country.
This England squad boasts attacking options aplenty and it was James who made the most of her opportunity to impress at international level following an impressive opening to the season with Chelsea to date, where she's scored four goals in 10 games.
James' surging runs, intelligent movement, skill, and confidence combined to torment sorry South Korea, and the 21-year-old - who is widely regarded as England's next shining star - will surely be rewarded with another start against Italy.
James has now found the back of the net in her last three games for club and country - and has five in her last eight appearances - meaning I'll be snapping up the 21/10 on offer for the forward to bank consecutive goals for her country on Sunday afternoon.
