England travel to Italy on Friday evening in a crucial UEFA Nations League fixture at the iconic San Siro in Milan. The match could go some way towards deciding which nation will be relegated from the tournament's top tier and here at we'll bring the latest free bets and odds from our partners at William Hill.

UEFA Nations League Form

England's Nations League campaign has gone from bad to worse over the past four matches. Gareth Southgate's side are rock-bottom of Group A3 with just two points from a possible twelve.

Last time out The Three Lions were humiliated, losing 4-0 against Hungary at Wembley Stadium.

Friday's opponents, Italy haven't fared an awful lot better in their four games so far. The Italians have won just one of four matches to date and were on the receiving end of a 5-2 defeat at Germany last time out.

Italy v England: Head-to-head

England have won just one of their last ten matches against Italy whilst they haven't won a competitive international against the Italians since winning a World Cup qualifier in November 1977.

The reverse fixture in the current UEFA Nations League campaign ended in a 0-0 draw at Molineux.

Betting Tips

Having conceded a combined nine goals last time out, the aim of the game for both England and Italy will be to keep it tight on Friday evening. Under 0.5 first half goals could be a wise option at 13/8. Meanwhile, another 0-0 draw is not completely out of the question at 15/2.

Harry Kane is closing in on Wayne Rooney's all-time scoring record for England and he remains the country's biggest goal threat. The Spurs forward has scored six goals in his last six Premier League games. Kane should be well-supported in the scoring markets. He is 9/2 to score first or 7/4 to score at any time in Milan.

There is a concerning lack of goals in the current Italian squad. Only Ciro Immobile has reached double figures for international goals amongst the current crop and his return of 15 goals in 55 internationals is far from prolific. If you're looking for a goal scorer amongst the Italian ranks then there are a couple of Premier League players worthy of consideration. Chelsea midfielder, Jorginho is on penalty duties for Italy and could be a wise option at 11/5 to score at any time. Meanwhile, new Leeds United attacker, Wilfried Gnonto is an exciting prospect. The 18-year-old scored his first international goal against Germany last time out and if he features against England he could prove great value at 18/5 to score at any time.

Italy v England Odds

  • Italy: 9/5
  • Draw: 21/10
  • England: 6/4
