SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Italy's showdown with Switzerland at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday night.
Italy vs Switzerland (Wednesday, 20:00)
Italy will hope to secure qualification to the knockout stages of Euro 2020 when they take on Switzerland at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday night.
I've already penned a separate match preview for this Group A encounter and I'm going to revisit one of those recommended punts for my featured bet.
If we combine Italy to win alongside under five goals in the game we can get some 4/5 (Bet 365) and that looks like a nice way in.
Italy have undergone a marked improvement since Mancini took charge and they enter this match-up in the midst of an eye-catching 28-game unbeaten streak.
The Azzurri were mighty impressive when making light work of Turkey in the tournament curtain-raiser and I suspect Switzerland could suffer a similar fate at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday night.
The Italians resurgence under Mancini can be attributed to their extraordinary defensive record, with the Azzurri posting a clean sheet in each of their last nine outings.
What's more, the host nation have shutout their opponents in 21 of their last 28 matches, winning a whopping 23 of those games in the process.
As such, another Italy win to nil will attract plenty of attention from punters at 13/10 (Bet 365) but I would be more inclined to side with an Italian triumph in a match that features fewer than five goals.
The aforementioned Bet Builder has banked in each of Italy's last six competitive contests and I'm more than happy to side with the same combination in the Italian capital this midweek.
