Netherlands vs Italy Prediction 18 June 2023

Tournament: UEFA Nations League
Location: De Grolsch Veste, Enschede
Match date: 06/18/2023 at 14:00

Third place in the Final Four of the Nations League will played between the teams of the Netherlands and Italy.

In the semi-final, the Netherlands were considered the favorites to face Croatia, but in the end they lost to it with a score of 2:4. Like it or not, but the younger generation of Oranje is not yet ready for serious challenges. It should be noted note that at the 2022 World Cup, the then van Gaal men reached the quarter-finals, where they dropped out from Argentina in a penalty shootout.

Italy, on the other hand, were not at all present both at this World Cup and at the previous one. But at the same time, they triumphed at Euro 2020. In March, Squadra Azzurra scored three points with England (1:2) and Malta (2:0) in the qualification for the 2024 European Championship, and in the Nations League semi-finals, Mancini's men were defeated by Spain - 1:2.

Both teams are not particularly focused on the result, given the consolatory status of the match. We won't be surprised if the Netherlands and Italy play open football and exchange scoring shots.
