Match Preview & Team News

The home side opened their UEFA Nations League campaign with a 1:0 victory over Poland. Although they are handed a tough group, Netherlands wants to challenge the top spot and find their place in the final tournament. Frenkie de Jong and the lads are enjoying an excellent form, as they managed to win seven times in the last eight occasions. The hosts were pretty efficient during that period, while their defense managed to keep the clean sheet three times in a row. The Netherlands also booked their place in the EURO next year, and they were scoring three goals per match on average.

On the other hand, Italy hoped for a victorious start of the competition, but they missed the chance to win against Bosnia and Herzegovina at the home pitch. Now, the visitors need to search for a win against a very tough opponent so that they remain in the race for the top spot. Roberto Mancini’s side enjoyed the run of eleven straight victories before the latest game. Italy’s strikers were lethal for the oppositions’ goalkeepers in the EURO qualifiers as they managed to score 37 times in ten matches. The away side hasn’t lost 15 times in a row, and they hope their streak can last a little bit longer.
