New NetBet customers will be able to take a huge enhanced price of 8/1 (9.0) on Antonio Conte's side beating a team who looked out of sorts in their opening Euro 2016 clash

No team laid down a more impressive marker for their Euro 2016 title credentials than Italy with their performance against Belgium in Lyon. Largely considered something of a long shot for this tournament in the build-up, a 2-0 victory over Marc Wilmots' side has seen their outright winner price halved in places.

After blowing Belgium away, the challenge of a Sweden side who could only draw with Republic of Ireland on Monday looks a very winnable one for Antonio Conte's men, especially knowing a victory will see them through to the knockout stages at the earliest opportunity.

They are around 10/11 (1.91) to make it two wins from two games at the time of writing and there will be interest at those odds.

NetBet are offering an enhanced price to new customers though, allowing anyone opening a new account to benefit from a huge quote of 8/1 (9.0) on the Azzurri.

To take up this huge price simply register using the links provided, deposit using bonus code ITALY and back Conte's men at the usual price shown on site with your first wager. If they prove too good for Sweden then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value. What's more, if the favourites fail to oblige then there's a bonus of up to £10 available.

As impressive as Italy were, Sweden failed to show anything close to their best on match day one. A Ciaran Clark own goal gave them a share of the spoils against Republic of Ireland but they are unlikely to get as much joy from one of the most solid back lines in world football.

The Azzurri's 3-5-2 will test Erik Hamren's side and given how little they showed in Paris, it could be a long afternoon for the Swedes with the price of 8/1 (9.0) on Italy likely to prove extremely popular with punters.
