14.10.2020 Italy – Netherlands – Review
It’s always a classic when two huge forces like Italy and Netherlands face each other on
the football pitch. In our football best betting tips we are going to preview this game from
the Nations League on Wednesday. Are you ready?
Italy are leaders in Group 1 of Nations League’s League A, but they have just one point
advantage in front of Netherlands and Poland. This means that we could have a new
leader after the matches on Wednesday. Surely this is a huge motivation for both teams –
for Italy to keep the first place and for Netherlands to reach it.
Few days ago Italy made their second draw in Group 1. Roberto Mancini’s team didn’t
enough against Poland, so the game in Gdansk ended with a 0-0 draw.
Mancini chose an attacking formation for his team. Belotti, Chiesa and Pellegrini had to
operate in attack while Barella, Jorginho and Verratti started in midfield. After the break
Roberto Mancini tried to change something, but the inclusion of Berardi, Kean and
Locatelli didn’t lead to a goal as well.
Netherlands’ new manager Frank de Boer is still looking for his first win at the job. In his
first official game the Dutch side visited Bosnia-Herzegovina and only won a point after a
0-0 draw. It was a bit dissapointing because for Netherlands it was a good chance to top
the group standings.
We expect to see De Boer doing some changes against Italy. Players such as Van de
Beek, Babel, Berghuis and Hateboer could be picked to start in Bergamo on Wednesday.
These are our football best betting tips for the Nations League derby clash between Italy
and Netherlands. The visitors are still trying to pick themselves up after the departure of
Ronald Koeman. This gives the Italians a fine opportunity to win this game. Let’s see if
they can do it, though.
