The Three Lions haven't been scoring much in recent outings and Tuesday's clash with the Azzurri shouldn't be any different

England take on Italy in an international friendly at  the Wembley Stadium.

Gareth Southgate’s charges look forward to defending a strong record in front of their home crowd, having found themselves undefeated in their last 11 duels at home since losing 2-1 against Netherlands almost exactly two years ago.

It’s worth mentioning that four of last five showdowns between both teams has seen the first 45 minutes end on a stalemate. Backing such result to surface here comes in at the price of (2.05).

The home team’s record against the Italians is nothing to shout about, having managed just one win in their last seven matches against the four-time world champions.
