Italy vs Netherlands Prediction

Italy to Win – 11/10 with Bet365

Under 1.5 Goals – 12/5 with Bet365

The Netherlands come into this one with no wins in their last three. A disappointing 0-0 draw with Bosnia-Herzegovina followed a 1-0 friendly defeat to Mexico and a 1-0 home loss to Italy in their reverse fixture.

The Italians on the other hand, have conceded just twice in their last five. They were unable to get one over Poland in a 0-0 draw that suggests another tight game to come here. Just one goal separated these two sides in their first Nations League encounter and it is likely to be a similar story this time around.

 

Poland vs Bosnia-Herzegovina Prediction

Poland to Win and Under 2.5 Goals – 13/5 with Paddy Power

The reverse fixture between these two sides is the only one to see more than two goals scored by any side in the group so far. Poland won 2-1 away from home thanks to goals from Kamil Glik and Kamil Grosiki.

Bosnia-Herzegovina are regarded by many as the weakest side in the group and are yet to win. A Polish win would give them a chance of topping the group with two games remaining. It’s likely to be another low scoring game with Poland having the edge.

 

England vs Denmark Prediction

England to Win to Nil – 2/1 with Bet365.

The Three Lions conceded their first goal in a year when Romelu Lukaku stepped up to convert from the spot. Gareth Southgate’s side haven’t been inspiring going forward in this Nations League group but they certainly have the quality to breach the Danish defence.

A marquee win over the World’s topped ranked side will have boosted confidence and puts England in a strong position to qualify for the finals. England can go one better than their 0-0 draw last time out against Denmark.

 

Iceland vs Belgium Prediction

Belgium to Win to Nil – 10/11 with Paddy Power.

Roberto Martinez’s side have conceded three in three so far in Group 2. They kept a clean sheet in their opening game with Denmark before thrashing their next opponents, Iceland, 5-1. A 2-1 defeat to England is damaging but offers some optimism for this encounter.

England didn’t threaten too often, scoring from a penalty and a deflected shot to win the game. Belgium largely held off the second-best side (on paper) in the group. They dispatched Iceland with ease last time around and shouldn’t have too many issues stopping them from adding to their solitary Nations League goal.

 

Croatia vs France Prediction

France and Over 2.5 Goals – 13/5 with Paddy Power

Croatia have conceded nine goals in three games so far. They took the lead against France and equalised after going behind but eventually fell to a 4-2 defeat. They are certainly capable of scoring, having managed to net in each of their three fixtures so far, but their defence is unlikely to stand up to the supremely talented French attack.

France cannot afford a slip-up with their group likely to be decided in Lisbon when they take on Portugal for a second time. Goals are expected once again against Croatia with France coming out on top.

 

Portugal vs Sweden Prediction

Portugal to Win and Under 3.5 Goals – Evens with Paddy Power

Portugal have put in three impressive displays in their Nations League group games so far. They beat Sweden by two goals to nil in a game that never looked like getting away from them away from home. Their 0-0 draw against France was a well-drilled display with few clear cut opportunities for either side.

Sweden have struggled for goals, having only managed one against Croatia so far. All three of their games have featured under 3.5 goals and despite a comfortable Portugal win predicted, the goal margin is unlikely to be too jarring.

 

Norway vs Northern Ireland Prediction

Erling Haaland to Score – 3/4 with Bet Victor

Haaland bagged a hat-trick against Romania to take his international tally to six in six. The Borussia Dortmund wonderkid has been in fine form this season, netting five in five for his club. Norway dispatched Romania with ease and will confident of a result against Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland are used to keeping things tight but if anyone is going to score for Norway, it is surely going to be their young talisman, Erling Haaland.

 

Russia vs Hungary Prediction

Russia to Win – 4/7 with Paddy Power

Top of Division B’s Group 3 after three games, Russia are yet to taste defeat. A win against Hungary would see Russia take a four-point lead with just two games remaining. So far, Russia have scored in each game, notching seven times, including three against Hungary.

Hungary have given a good account of themselves with two wins to nil in their other group matches. There’s potential value in a Hungary win at 5/1 but in all likelihood, Russia will emerge with all three points to virtually seal promotion to Division A.

 

Finland vs Republic of Ireland Prediction

Under 1.5 Goals – 11/8 with Bet365

The Republic missed out on Euro qualification after a penalty shoot-out defeat following their 0-0 draw with Slovakia. In the Nations League they have seen just three goals scored in three games with Bulgaria, Finland, and Wales.

Finland’s games have featured just one side scoring and four goals across three games. They ran out 1-0 winners in a tight contest in the reverse fixtures and few goals are expected once again.

 

Bulgaria vs Wales Prediction

Under 1.5 Goals – 6/4 with Bet365

Continuing the theme of few goals in Group 4, Bulgaria and Wales have also not seen the net bulge too often. Bulgaria have scored one in three and conceded four whilst Wales have scored two and are yet to concede.

A 94th winner from Neco Williams was all that separated these two sides last time out. There is plenty of value in the under goals markets and under 1.5 goals is definitely likely.

What is the UEFA Nations League?

Portugal win the Nations League

The new concept has been seven years in the making and will consist of 55 European nations. They are split into four leagues, A-D, based on their UEFA ranking at the end of the World Cup 2018 qualifying matches. Within the four leagues, the nations will be divided once again into groups or either three or four teams.

At the end of the group phase, the winner of each league will be promoted and the bottom club will be relegated. The winners of the four groups in league A will play in the final phase, the ‘Final Four’ where the winner will be crowned.

Portugal won the first ever Nations League, beating the Netherlands in the final. There will be 55 participants in this season’s Nations League tournament with the final stages taking place in 2021. World Cup 2022 qualifying fits into the Nations League, giving teams an extra chance to qualify for Qatar 2022.

“World Cup qualifying initially remains largely the same, with ten group winners advancing directly to the finals in Qatar. The format of the play-offs has evolved, though, and will now consist of two knockout rounds from which three teams qualify. It will involve the ten group runners-up plus the best two UEFA Nations League group winners (based on their overall UEFA Nations League rankings) who did not directly qualify or reach the play-offs.”
