      Analysis: Italy vs Spain (24 March 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: March 22 2016, 14:26 »

      Itália and Espanha meet at Stadio Communale Friuli, in a friendly match, the first of the year for both teams. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the away team, since they have a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses in the last 4 matches. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 05‑03‑2014, and ended in a (1‑0) win by Espanha. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Itália presents significant differences between home and away results.

      Analysis of Italy

      The home team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 4 friendlies last year, with the following final scores: Italy (2‑2) Romania, Belgium (3‑1) Italy, Italy (0‑1) Portugal e Italy (1‑1) England. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses in away matches, with 25 goals scored and 17 conceded; against 6 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 12 conceded. In their last match, for the Friendlies, they got a home tie against Romania by (2‑2). In the last 10 home matches a Itália has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. Goals have been frequent in their home matches, as 7 of the last 14 have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 11 out of 14 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1. There are 2 periods that stand out in the last 14 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (0'‑15'); they have suffered 5 of their 10 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      The Italian national team comes for this match after a home draw by 2-2 against Romania, adding the second consecutive match without winning in friendly matches. Usually the coach Antonio Conte plays in 4-4-2 privileging the ball possession and approaches organized on the attack, using flanks to create danger to their opponent. El Shaarawy is a very fast and an expert player in the defense-attack transition. It’s important to note that Graziano Pelle was the best scorer of the team in qualifying for Euro 2016. What is new in the call for these two preparation matches for the European Championship are Jorginho, the midfielder Napoles, and the return of the Thiago Motta midfielder of PSG.

      Analysis of Spain

      The away team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 3 friendlies last year, with the following final scores: Spain (2‑0) England, Spain (2‑1) Costa Rica e Netherlands (2‑0) Spain. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 10 wins, 0 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 10 conceded; against 11 wins, 1 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 29 goals scored and 13 conceded. In their last match, for the Friendlies, they got a home win against a England by (2‑0). In the last 9 away matches a Espanha has won 6, tied 0 and lost 3.

      Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 4 of the last 9 matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 6 out of 9 have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Spain comes motivated for this match after seven consecutive wins, two victories in friendly matches and five counting for the qualification. In this match it’s foreseeable that Vicente Del Bosque coach will play in the usual tactical system, ie 4-4-2, privileging the ball possession and attacks through the centre aisle. Fabregas and Iniesta are owners of high-quality pass and vision of the match. It’s important to point out that Paco Álcacer was the best scorer of the team in the qualifying round for Euro 2016. For this preparation match the coach called the centre forward of Bilbao Aritz Aduriz and Barcelona’s midfielder Sergi Roberto.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be the existence of a goal in the first 45 minutes. In this match we believe that the two teams will act very offensively, not only by the offensive power they hold, but to provide entertainment to their fans. In addition, and because it’s a “historic” match, it’s expectable that the national teams will want to gain advantage as soon as possible.
