Italy are still looking for their first victory in months as they face England at Wembley Stadium in an international friendly match on Tuesday. The two nations have last met in a friendly match in 2015, the result was 1-1 with goals from Graziano Pelle and Andros Townsend. The two teams have also met at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and Italy won that game 2-1 with goals from Claudio Marchisio and Mario Balotelli after Daniel Sturridge had scored for England. The Three Lions have not won against Italy since 2012.
England managed to snatch a 1-0 victory in the Netherlands last week after two consecutive goalless draws, Jesse Lingard scored the winning goal in the second half. That result marked the fifth consecutive clean sheet for England as they won their World Cup qualifying group with just three goals conceded in ten matches. Manager Gareth Southgate will most likely make some changes for Tuesday's match, especially since Joe Gomez and Ryan Bertrand are unavailable due to injuries.
Italy continue to struggle, they failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in 60 years after losing to Sweden in the playoffs last autumn but their sprig friendlies campaign doesn't seem to go any better. In the first match under interim boss Luigi Di Biagio Italy lost 2-0 to Argentina in Manchester last week, which means they have not won a match since a victory over Albania in October. Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini is unavailable due to an injury, while Di Biagio is certain to make some changes ahead of Tuesday's game.
England: Butland - Tarkowski, Dier, Maguire - Walker, Livermore, Henderson, Young - Alli, Lallana - Vardy
Italy: Buffon - Rugani, Bonucci, Darmian - Florenzi, Parolo, Jorginho, Verratti, Spinazzola - Cutrone, Immobile
My prediction: 0-0 draw.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
England win - 2.00
Draw - 3.20
Italy win - 4.00

I didn't saw that game but obviously you could expect England should of be a favourite because of the Italy disastrous performances lately.
1-1 in the end which should concern England and Southgate but of course the excuse is the Kane absence.
As for Italy, the result wasn't of much importance except for their confidence of course but when I think again that's the most important thing sometimes.
