The market certainly seems to favour the Chinese youngster over the domestic hopeful. The match winner price opened at an average price of around 1.25-1.30 and hasn’t drifted significantly since.

Traders at the notoriously sharp bookmaker Pinnacle have bucked this trend however by backing the Italian relentlessly from an opening price of 3.75 down to just 3.10 (indicating a win probability of around 30%). This could suggest value at other bookmakers currently offering larger prices.
