Argentina vs Italy Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Argentina World Cup 2018 predictions

Argentina vs Italy predictions and betting tips for Friday’s International Friendly on Friday 23rd March with an anytime goalscorer pick and outright prediction included.

An intriguing International Friendly between Argentina and Italy takes place on Friday night as Jorge Sampaoli’s side ramp up their preparations for the 2018 World Cup. They will be without Sergio Aguero, who pulled out of the game with knee injury leaving Gonzalo Higuain to lead the attack alongside Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria. It wasn’t the finest qualifying campaign for the South American side and they will want to make an impression against the Azzurri. Interim Italy coach Luigi Di Biagio is hoping to restore some pride into this side after they failed to qualify for the summer tournament. He’s made a number of changes to his side including a call-up for Milan striker Patrick Cutrone. Mario Balotelli is one of those players who has missed out alongside the injury Giorgio Chiellini.  See our Argentina vs Italy predictions below and get yourself a free bet to use on our betting tips.

Argentina vs Italy Predictions

Italy desperately need to bounce back from their disappointment at the hands of Sweden and with friendlies against England and Argentina, they’ll hope to make it a memorable International Break. Breaking down Sampaoli’s side won’t be easy and with a number of individual superstars in their side, they have the potential to be deadly. It’s hard to separate these two teams and with no home advantage for either side, this could end all square. The first of our Argentina vs Italy betting tips is Draw which is priced at 12/5 with Unibet.


We’re moving onto an anytime goalscorer next and it is hard to feel sorry for Argentina when Aguero is out. Higuain is an adequate replacement for the Manchester City man and although he hasn’t always shone for his country, he is likely to prove be a menace here. Italy have their own threats but without Chiellini at the back, they could be susceptible. Both Teams to Score? Yes is 6/5 with Betfair and is the second of our Argentina vs Italy betting tips.


Patrick Cutrone has enjoyed a breakthrough 12 months and his success has been capped off by a call up to the Italy squad. The fairy-tale could continue with an International goal here. Patrick Cutrone in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 39/10 with 888Sport and is the last of our Argentina vs Italy betting predictions for this weekend’s warm-up to the World Cup for Argentina. They are in World Cup 2018 Group D and our tips point to a comfortable passage through to the last 16 for them.


Argentina vs Italy Betting Preview

Argentina are starting as favourites for this tie and can be backed at 19/20. The Azzurri need to bounce back and they can be supported at 14/5. The draw, which is the first of our betting tips is 12/5. Most punters will be expecting goals in this game, despite the uncompetitive nature of the fixture and Over 2.5 Goals can be backed at 5/4. Under 2.5 Goals is short at 4/7. No surprise to see Lionel Messi start as the favourite in the first goalscorer market with the Barcelona man available at 11/4 to open the scoring. The aforementioned Gonzalo Higuain is next in the betting at 9/2.
