Italy vs Australia rugby Italy vs Australia rugby

We're in for another intriguing match in week three as Italy take on Australia at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence. So far, both sides have had interesting outings, which we will cover later, and I expect a fantastic competition to see who will grab their second win of the Autumn Nations Series 2022. I will also include a few tips for those interesting in a splash of rugby betting.

📜 History of Italy vs Australia

Newer rugby fans may not be aware that the first Italy vs Australia test dates back all the way to 1973, with a total of 18 official matches between the two sides having been played. I have broken down the numbers below.

Italy have yet to beat the Australians in this test, but can you wisely dismiss Italy at this stage? Italy's recent performances in the Six Nations are certainly a sign that the Europeans are starting to get their act together - any Welsh fans remember the 2022 Wales vs Italy game, for example? Let's take a look at some of the recent results between gli Azzurri and The Wallabies, to see how close a match we can expect.

Apart from their match at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, it seems that none of the last five Italy vs Australia results have been particularly close - not within one score, anyway. History seems to predict an Australian win, but let's see if other key factors can influence the final result.

We can see that Italy have snuck up the rankings by two places, but seventh-place Australia still seem in the driving seat despite dropping below Argentina last week. That's one more indicator for The Wallabies to grab the W, going into this rugby test.

✔️ Italy vs Australia: Recent Form of the Teams

I believe the recent form of the teams will be the ultimate clue as to the winner of Italy vs Australia, so let's take a look at how both nations have fared in the Rugby Autumn Nations Series 2022 so far.

🐺 Matches Recap: Italy Autumn Nations Series 2022 So Far

Gli Azzurri had a cracker of an opening game against Samoa last week, storming to a shock 49-17 win at home. Compared to a lot of the rest of their year's endeavours, Italy looked strong throughout 80 minutes and bagged a well-deserved win. Will a recent surge for the Europeans be enough to secure themselves two in a row against an equally resurgent Australia, though?

🦘 Matches Recap: Australia Autumn Nations Series 2022 So Far

The Wallabies also secured a surprise victory against Scotland at Murrayfield in the first week of the Autumn Nations Series 2022, but were denied in their 30-29 test against France last week by a 77th-minute Penaud try. Despite a small dent in their campaign, the Australians are showing greater consistency of play and look in good shape to bring their best to the Stadio Artemio Franchi. It's a tricky ask to separate these two teams on recent form, but I think the Aussies have shined the better against tougher competition, so I think Head Coach, Dave Rennie will be expecting his Men in Gold to deliver the goods this weekend.

🌦️ Weather Conditions at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence

The weather is a huge part of rugby. The long-range forecast is that it will be clear and sunny with temperatures around 20 degrees, which is intriguing in itself, given that, for once, I don't think such conditions will favour either team. I think the key take-away from this indicator is that there's still no tick in the box for the home side at this stage.

🕵️ My Italy vs Australia Prediction Winner

I used to go with my gut instinct when deciding on my winner pre-match. Time and experience, though, have taught me that I am at my best with rugby predictions when looking at the key indicators. In that case, on history, word rankings, recent form, and the weather, I can only give this to Australia. I would like to see Italy at their best again this week, but I think gli Azzurri may lack the killer instinct of the more experienced Aussies, which means that if the Men in Gold start to stretch any kind of lead, I can see Italian heads dropping whilst the visitors turn the screw. Whilst Italy are always good for pulling off an upset when it is least expected, I don't think this will be the match when that happens.

💶 Italy vs Australia Betting Tips

For those not as interested in shorter odds of 1.12 for Australia to win, I would say to consider handicap betting. For me, the Aussies are going to wrap this up by 15 points, so a bet of Australia to win (-13.5 points) at odds of 1.64 may be the one for those searching for longer options. You could also consider combining odds for this match with other games from the weekend, if you fancy your luck. Just be careful when selecting teams and your wager, however - especially given how Italy surprised us all last week!
