Italy Euro Tips and Betting Odds: Can the Azzurri clinch their first Euros title since 1968?

Welcome to BettingOdds.com's Euro 2021 profile series, where we'll be counting down to next summer's tournament with an in-depth look at the betting opportunities for each of the countries involved.

Italy's history at the European Championships isn't the best, with their only triumph falling back in 1968. Since then, the Azzurri have come close to success in the prestigious tournament, reaching the final in 2000 and 2012 but beaten by France and Spain on both respective occasions. It was humiliating for the whole nation when they failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2018 but some significant improvement has been made over the last couple of years.

Author’s Opinion

Italy could well be going a little under the radar heading into Euro 2021 after a solid period of consistency shown in the last two seasons. My big worry for them though is that they will come unstuck against one of the big hitters. This most likely will be Belgium in the quarter-finals should both teams top their relatively generous groups and progress from the last 16. At 11/1 they are just about short enough for my liking, although I’d rather have them onside than several others around them in the betting such as The Netherlands (9/1) and Spain (7/1).

Top Three Key Players

Leonardo Bonucci, Juventus

A runner up at the European Championships back in 2012 when Italy were beaten 4-0 by Spain in the final, Leonardo Bonnuci brings a wealth of experience to this side. The central defender has made over 100 appearances for his country and is currently the only player in the squad to have over 50 caps to his name. His leadership qualities will be vital should the Azzurri go deep into the tournament.

Ciro Immobile, Lazio

Ciro Immobile will be one of Italy’s biggest attacking threats at the Euros. The Lazio front man stormed to the Serie A Golden Boot award last term, netting 36 goals, and he will be relied upon to deliver the goals for Italy this summer. The 31-year-old has not been quite as potent this term with 14 Serie A goals to his name, but it’s fair to say he’s got some decent competition with Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku, Luis Muriel and Zlatan Ibrahimovic being the four to outscore Immobile.

Lorenzo Insigne, Napoli

It’s been a good season for Lorenzo Insigne who has consistently put in good performances for his team and has won the WhoScored.com man of the match on an impressive eight occasions. Insigne has scored 13 goals and provided 12 assists in all competitions this campaign and his creativity will be needed to help Italy get back to the top of European football.

Young Gun

Federico Chiesa

It does feel like Federico Chiesa has been around for quite a while now, but still at age of 23 he just about scrapes into the young gun category. A player who has no doubt benefited from training day in day out alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Chiesa has 12 goals and eight assists in all competitions for Juventus this term. He will most likely line up in a front-three along with Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne and will be keen to show his attacking prowess on the big stage.

Player Of The Tournament Odds

Italy’s Outright Odds at Euro 2021

After the humiliation of failing to qualify for the World Cup in 2018, Italy have put in some solid performances under Roberto Mancini and they will be hoping to repeat their success of 1968 when they lifted this trophy.

Italy are currently around 11/1 to be crowned European Champions this summer and it’s worth noting that most bookmakers are offering two places each-way.

Euro Betting Odds

Italy’s Group Odds at Euro 2021

Italy have been placed in Group A, which will see them face Switzerland, Turkey and Wales. They are clear favourites to top the group at 4/7 with bet365 and are as short as 1/40 to qualify with Paddy Power.


The Gaffer

Six months after Italy had failed to qualify for the World Cup, Roberto Mancini was handed the job as Italy manager. Since then he has brought a certain level of solidity back to the side and they are unbeaten in their last 24 games, a run that stretches back to September 2018 when they lost to Portugal. Mancini’s men have kept eight clean sheets in their last nine matches but as is often the case, many of those were against some of the smaller footballing nations.
