England may be through to the quarter-finals at Euro 2012 as the winner of Group D, but they’re only the slightest of favorites on the Las Vegas Euro 2012 Odds to defeat Italy which advanced as the runner-up from Group C - when these old rivals take the pitch on Sunday (2:45 pm Eastern) at Olympic Stadium in Kyiv, Ukraine.
England, which is listed at 15/2 on the updated soccer futures to win Euro 2012, emerged as the winner of Group D with a pair of one-goal victories over Sweden and co-host Ukraine as well as a 1-1 draw with France.
Joleon Lescott, Andy Carroll, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck scored for England in its first two matches, before star striker Wayne Rooney returned from a two-game suspension to displace Carroll from the lineup and score the only goal in England’s 1-0 victory over Ukraine. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ashley Young, James Milner, captain Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole have each been booked through the first three games.
Italy, which is actually ranked just a shade better than England at 7/1 on the Las Vegas Soccer Odds to win Euro 2012, was undefeated with a pair of 1-1 draws followed by a 2-0 victory in its group-stage matches against Spain, Croatia and Ireland respectively.
Antonio Di Natale, Andrea Pirlo, Antonio Cassano and Mario Balotelli found the back of the net for Italy, while Balotelli, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Christian Maggio, Thiago Motta, Riccardo Montolivo, Federico Balzaretti, Daniele De Rossi and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon were all cautioned.
