The third-place play-off in the 2021 UEFA Nations League will see Italy and Belgium lock horns at the Juventus Stadium in Turin on Sunday afternoon. Both nations were involved in fascinating semi-finals in midweek, with the Italians losing to Spain, and the Belgians letting a 2-0 lead slip to lose 3-2 to France. Gli Azzurri, the UEFA Euro 2020 winners, are the bookies’ favourites, but this could go either way in Turin. Who will finish third place in the 2020-21 Nations League?

Italy Preview – Can the Italians make home advantage count?

Italy booked their place in the Nations League finals after winning Group A1, beating the likes of Netherlands, Poland and Bosnia & Herzegovina to top spot. Overall, Roberto Mancini’s men won three and drew three of six.

Gli Azzurri went into Wednesday’s semi-final against Spain as the slight favourites with the bookies. However, they came up against an inspired Ferran Torres, who scored two goals before half time. Lorenzo Pellegrini pulled one back for the European champions, but La Roja held on for the win.

Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

Even though the Nations League is not the most prestigious of tournaments, Italy would have loved to have followed up their Euro 2020 victory with another trophy. Still, European success and a bronze in the Nations League will be an excellent return for an Italian side who did not even qualify for the last FIFA World Cup.

Belgium Preview – Can the Belgians bounce back from gut-wrenching defeat?

Belgium went into the Nations League finals full of optimism, and they had France on the ropes in their semi-final in Turin on Thursday. With an hour gone, the Belgians were seemingly on their way to the final with a 2-0 lead.

Les Bleus had other ideas, though, and pulled one back through Karim Benzema on 62 minutes. Shortly after, Kylian Mbappe dispatched a penalty won by Antoine Griezmann. In injury time, Theo Hernandez hit the winner just after Belgium had a goal ruled out for offside.
