24-07-23 Daily Football Predictions: Italy vs Argentina

Betting Tips

When Italy and Argentina face off in the World Cup’s first round, all eyes will be on them. On Monday, their Group G match begins at Eden Park. Italy and Argentina haven’t made much of an impression in women’s international football thus far, with Argentina failing to win a game at the event and Italy missing every World Cup between 2003 and 2015.

Italy vs Argentina

The Italians just defeated New Zealand 1-0 in a friendly match. Midway through the first half, Valentina Giacinti broke the tie to help her team win. Meanwhile, Argentina easily defeated Peru in a friendly. Yamila Rodriguez, Camila Ares, Mariana Larroquette, and Estefania Banini all scored goals.

The South American team’s third-place result at the 2022 Copa America Femenina earned them a spot in the Women’s World Cup. Italy, on the other hand, finished first in their qualification group with 27 points from ten games, 40 goals scored, and only two goals allowed.

Italy has won their past three games by scores of 2-1 (against Colombia), 0-0 (against Morocco), and 1-0 (against New Zealand). In their last ten international games, Italy has won four while drawing one. Unfortunately, they lost all five of their games.

Before their forthcoming game, Argentina appears to be in good shape as they try to maintain their perfect record. In their first of three losses, they drew 1-1 with Venezuela before losing on penalties. They afterwards exacted revenge on themselves by crushing Venezuela 3-0. Peru was defeated by a score of 4-0. Argentina has won five of its most recent 10 international contests across all competitions, while also drawing four and losing one.

The final two teams in Group G are South Africa and Sweden.

Verdict

Argentina has only scored in two of their last six World Cup games, and their inability to score at this level has prevented them from doing well on the largest platform. However, Yamila Rodriguez, the breakout hero of the Copa America last year, scored six goals there and outperformed her Expected Goals value by a greater margin than any other player. She seems like a wonderful candidate to make the breakthrough for the South Americans in this situation, when Argentina is trying to make progress.

Argentina has yet to go past the World Cup group stage, but they are confident that this will be their last chance to do so.

Meanwhile, Italy will want to improve upon their quarterfinal performance from four years ago in France. Since Sweden is the favorite to win Group G, the outcome of this match may determine who places second and advances to the knockout rounds.

Expect a low-scoring draw between the two teams as they will balance each other out.
