On the first day of summer, Italy and Argentina, European champions and winners of the America’s Cup will play in the new Supercup, dubbed the Finalissima. The match will take place on 1 June at Wembley Stadium.

Italy

Roberto Mancini’s side are clearly at a distinct disadvantage after their success at UEFA EURO 2020. They sensationally failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, losing to a much weaker side Northern Macedonia in the qualifying stages and losing outright to Switzerland in the group stage due to a penalty awarded to Giorginho. Italy are still in a state of shock; the Finalissima match will be Giorgio Chiellini’s last official match. This match is more of a friendly, with Mancini clearly wanting to experiment with the squad, letting many newcomers play in addition to the immature Chiellini. The Italian Eurocampaign is over, there are only the Nations League games ahead, there is no need to prepare for the World Cup. Mancini is very fond of rotating the squad for semi friendly matches, especially given the end of the season for club football. The match will definitely not feature main striker Immobile, he is likely to be replaced by Belotti or young Scamacca.

Argentina

Current holders of the America’s Cup for the first time in many years, Argentina have qualified for the Mundial with confidence, finishing in second place behind Brazil. Scaloni has a very strong squad, with reigning manager Messi, National World Cup finalist Di Maria, outstanding goalkeeper Martinez, and La Liga leaders Lo Celso and De Paul. Argentina are just getting ready for the World Cup in Qatar, and it could be the perfect test of their mettle. Argentina’s leaders have had a torrid season, with Messi still out of favour at PSG and Di Maria leaving the team. In the match against Italy, Scaloni’s team must show their best side and prove that they did not win the Copa America for nothing.

Italy-Argentina match prediction

Argentina win for 2.5.

Argentina are many times more powerful than Italy right now in terms of their squad. Messi-Di Maria-Martinez’s attacking line-up is clearly more powerful than any of the Scamacca-Belotti pairing, Italy’s marginal strikers are only Bernardeschi and Raspadori, which is not a sure thing for Scuaddra Azzurra fans.
