  • Italy host Germany in their first Nations League game next Saturday in Bologna
  • Roberto Mancini’s team didn’t qualify for the 2022 World Cup
  • Germany was the first team to qualify and has been in great form

One of the top games on the first day of the new Nations League season will be the clash between Italy and Germany. Roberto Mancini’s side didn’t qualify for the World Cup even though they are the reigning European champions. Surely the team will do everything now to entertain their fans and get the win against Germany. But it will be a very tight tie according to the odds of Italy vs Germany betting tips.

Probably the strongest group in the top division of the 2022/23 Nations League is Group 3, where we can find the teams of Italy, Germany, and England along with Hungary. Next Saturday the reigning European champions, Italy will host the 2014 World Cup winners, Germany at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara in Bologna. For the fans’ huge disappointments, the hosts didn’t qualify for this year’s World Cup. After their shocking defeat against North Macedonia in the play-off semi-final. Germany will be in Qatar though, and will try to get back to their best form following some less successful tournaments. Both teams played well in the previous Nations League edition, with Italy finishing in third place. 

Italy vs Germany betting tips with similar odds for all results 

After the disappointment of not qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, Italy needs to concentrate on the next few games in the Nations League. First, they will host Germany in Bologna, one of their old rivals. The two sides have met five times in the World Cup and four times in the European Championship. Their last meeting was an international friendly which ended with a 0-0 draw. Online sportsbooks in Italy offer the odds of 3.46 for a draw now, which is the less likely result according to their Italy vs Germany betting tips. Surely the Italian team will try to win this game and start their campaign with a victory. 

But it will be interesting to see how they can bounce back from their disappointing defeat in the World Cup play-off. Roberto Mancini stayed as their manager and can rely on most of his players from the previous squad. From Giorgio Chiellini to Marco Verratti, Leonardo Bonucci to Jorginho. The top scorer of the Serie A, Ciro Immobile won’t play though due to an injury. Roma defender Leonardo Spinazzola can also make his return to the team. Empoli forward Andrea Pinamonti can make his international debut. He has the smallest odds, 2.875 to score a goal in the game ahead of Torino forward Andrea Belotti (3.00) and Juventus striker Moise Kean (3.20). While the team’s odds to win the match are 2.432 on 22Bet. 

Germany can win anywhere

The German team has been in great form since the arrival of their new manager, Hansi Flick last September. They became the first team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after winning 9 out of their 10 group games. FC Barcelona goalkeeper Marc Ter Stegen is not in the squad but most of the other experienced players are. Like Thomas Muller, Leon Goretzka, and Joshua Kimmich. Just like Bayern striker Leroy Sane, Timo Werner, and his Chelsea teammate, Kai Havertz. The three of them are mentioned with the biggest chance of scoring and leading their team to victory. 

Online gambling sites in Italy offer the odds of  2.825 for the guests’ win. Italy has the better record in this tournament after finishing third in the previous edition. Germany finished second in their group last year behind the Spanish team. This match is a great opportunity for them to find their best team for the World Cup. While the Azzurro can try to forget about their previous games and make up for the fans. Bookmakers expect both teams to score in the match and offer the odds of 1.74 for that. And to see more than 2 goals are also likely to happen (1.46) according to the predictions.
