Our prediction for this match:
Italy and Estonia face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence. The Azzurri should use this friendly to rest key players for the UEFA Nations League derby against Poland. Juve duo Chiesa – Chiellini is out of contention with injury, while Lazio attacker Ciro Immobile is rated doubtful for the clash. Italy boss Roberto Mancini, though, has strength in depth, and regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered.
Estonia, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement in recent months, with the team sharing the spoils with both Armenia and North Macedonia in the previous two Nations League games, but Italy are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visiting team than their previous rivals. When the two teams met at Stadio Alberto Braglia nine years ago Italy recorded a routine 3-0 win over Estonia.
