Live on ESPN & ITV 4: Fri 19.30 & 19.45: Italy may have looked a touch out of sorts recently but should claim a point in Slovenia.
In Friday’s other Euro 2012 qualifiers, Italy are 5/4 with to win in Ljubliana as they travel to Slovenia.
Italy top the group and with Slovenia just 3 points behind, a home win would bring the two teams level on points in Group C, an 11/4 shot with Ladbrokes.
Italy’s World Cup woes were well publicised but have ground out friendly draws in both Germany and Romania of late. In Italian fashion, Gli Azzurri would be happy with a point in an away game and should be able to keep Slovenia at bay. 0-0 comes to mind then at 7/1 with Stan James.
Also on TV, Austria and Belgium battle it out and are very likely not to replicate last time’s stunning 4-4 thriller. Another draw is 2.4 (12/5) with Betdaq but Belgium’s very talented squad come finally come together and earn 3 points, a 2/1 chance with Boylesports.
France are just 1/20 (888sport) get the job done in Luxembourg where a win to nil is 1/4 with Ladbrokes and a win by 3 clear goals or more is 8/11 with YouWin.com while the Netherlands are 8/15 (Blue Square) to win in Hungary.
