New Zealand vs Italy Betting Tips Rugby World Cup 2023
The fearsome All Blacks arrive at the Rugby World Cup 2023 as the last champions of the Rugby Championship in its 2022 version, a tournament in which they have been crowned 8 times, always with great authority. They finished in first place with 19 points, one more than the second-placed Wallabies. The Azzurri come from finishing last in the Rugby 6 Nations 2022 where they did not win a single match (they got the famous wooden spoon) and they were completely outclassed by all their rivals.
How the All Blacks and Italy play and Statistics
New Zealand is already widely known. They usually play a simple, uncomplicated rugby that does what the play calls for. Everything is done with criteria and with a sense according to the place on the field where the game is taking place. It is true that it does not generate the fear that it gave in 2011, 2015 or even 2019, but likewise, it is a squad that always appears in key situations and demonstrates its power in every international competition.
Italy’s style of play is pragmatic and seeks to be patient in order to force some infringement from the opponent and thus score points. They do not usually have a great performance in key matches. They don’t have as many stars as Sergio Parisse who knew how to absorb the pressure.
