Despite drawing a blank at Wembley, Dave Sarachan's side are usually good value for a goal on their travels and that should continue in Genk

Italy will be looking to put a distinctly mediocre Nations League campaign behind them against the United States of America on Tuesday evening.

Roberto Mancini's men could only take five points from four group games and while they will remain in League A, Portugal have confirmed top spot in Group Three with a match to spare.

Despite that form 888Sport make Italy their 4/7 (1.57) favourites to win this game in Genk. A draw is priced at 14/5 (3.80) while the USA are outsiders at 27/5 (6.40) with the same firm.

Sancho USA England

While soundly beaten at Wembley by England on their previous outing, the Americans will have been disappointed not to make one of their presentable chances count.

The visitors’ defence left a lot to be desired, but the Three Lions rode their luck with Christian Pulisic’s opportunity before the quick-fire double that put the result beyond doubt.

Indeed, the US have scored in eight of their previous nine away games including drawing a blank in London last week. That run includes goals against France, Portugal and Mexico so the underdogs will fancy their chances of getting on the scoreboard once more.

Italy v USA Betting Preview

Italy may have kept back-to-back clean sheets but prior to that the European side conceded in their previous eight matches with seven on those outings being international friendlies.

Considering both teams to score has paid out in five of the USA's last six games on the road it looks worthy of support once more at 49/50 (1.98) with 888Sport.

The 1-1 correct score has been a popular outcome as far as these teams are concerned. It paid out in the USA's recent friendly meetings with Portugal and France plus four times in Italy's last nine matches.

At 13/2 (7.50) with 888Sport it could be a worthwhile selection for those seeking a bigger potential return from this game.
