THE PREDICTION

Italy had to come from behind against Armenia but managed to avoid an upset to make it five wins from five in Group J. They now head to second-placed Finland whose only defeat in the group came in Italy in March and the Finns could keep it tight with all of their games going under 2.5 goals so far. Italy have to be favoured to edge this but Finland will make it difficult for them to break them down.
