The Oranje meanwhile played out a disappointing 1-1 draw away to Slovakia and for a team that had the likes of Daley Blind, Memphis Depay and Kevin Srootman as the most experienced players on the field shows there’s a lot of rebuilding to do.
Ronald Koeman’s men are quoted at (3.50) as slight underdgs.
The game ending a draw is priced at (3.30) with the same firm.
A worrying stat for the Dutch is that they have only won thrice against the Italians in 20 head to head meetings, losing 10 times and drawing seven.
This plus home advantage here for the men in blue means they look good to avoid defeat at odds of (1.28).
This is not to say the Oranje are bad in that they have won nine of their last 12 matches. Punters who thus want to stick with them can back them to either win or draw in Turin at (1.68).
Goalscoring shouldn’t be a problem in this match as both sides have quality upfront.
Mario Balotelli is back to his best after years of neglect and got a brace against the Saudis while the Dutch have the Depay, Ryan Babel, Eljero Elia and Quincy Promes to deliver the goals.
