We should be set for a Monday night thriller in Amsterdam as the Netherlands welcome Italy to the Johan Cruyff Arena.
We’ve taken a look at the numbers and picked out a three-leg bet builder acca at Bet365 to add an extra level of spice to the evening.
Here’s the breakdown of this Bet365 bet builder option:
The Dutchmen kept home clean sheets against Germany and France in the previous edition of the Nations League.
Italy, meanwhile, have maintained their reputation for a mean defence – they and have only conceded once in their last four competitive games.
Four of Holland’s last five victories have seen more goals after the half-time interval, with an aggregate score of 14-5 over goals in the opening 45.
The Italians also take time to get going, with their last half-dozen games seeing 16 second-half goals, compared with eight in the first.
I reckon these two will probably cancel each other out, and at this early stage in the season, I’m expecting well-drilled defences and some slightly rusty forward lines.
With very little between the sides, I can’t see anything separating them on Monday night
