Italy will lock horns with the Netherlands in a high-voltage League A (Group 1) encounter of the UEFA Nations League to be played at the Stadio de Bargamo, Italy. Both teams have performed similarly thus far in the tournament. While Italy has been undefeated, Netherlands endured a stinging defeat to the very team they will be playing on Wednesday. That game, played about a month back, witnessed Italy pipping Netherlands 1-0, courtesy Nicolo Barella’s brilliance.
It was nonetheless, a closely contested match, and might have given fans an inkling of the level of football they can expect in the upcoming face-off. Italy played out a goalless draw against Poland, but the possible return of Ciro Immobile will instill the team with a lot of confidence. Having beaten the Dutch team before, they do enter as marginal favourites.
However, Netherlands are a force to reckon with, and cannot be taken lightly. They drew with Bosnia and Herzegovina in a result that certainly didn’t the go the way they would have expected. A pumped-up team, led by the inimitable Virgil van Dijk will have their task cut out against Italy, but a triumph here will massively lift their spirits.With the top spot up for grabs, this tussle is bound to be a close one. We are indeed in for a cracker, and watching this game unfold will be a spectacle for football fans.
The Netherlands on the other hand have racked up four points from three games and will be looking for a win against Italy that will take them to the top of the group. Frank de Boer’s side played out a 0-0 draw of their own against Bosnia and Herzegovina in their last game. The Netherlands will also be looking to get the better of Italy this time, with the hosts winning the last game between the two sides 1-0.
Thus far, former Atlanta United manager De Boer has only been able to oversee a 1-0 friendly defeat to Mexico and a 0-0 draw with Bosnia and Herzegovina in their previous Nations League match.Success on Italian soil has been nonexistent for the Dutch; across nine previous visits — the majority being friendlies — they’ve returned home with three draws and six humbling losses. Can De Boer buck that trend or will there be more orange pain?
Italy: After being left on the bench last time out, in-form star Ciro Immobile will be expected to start against the Netherlands. The Italian has already scored one goal in three club appearances this season.Netherlands: After missing the last game due to suspension, Memphis Depay will be expected to lead the line for his side. The 26-year-old has scored 19 goals in 53 appearances for the Netherlands.
