Football – Europe – UEFA Nations League Betting Tips

League A Group 3 beckons on Sunday evening as Poland and Italy clash with further betting tips from the UEFA Nations League in Warsaw.

Poland drew their opening group match against Sunday night’s opponents, Italy in a 1-1 draw in Bologna but then suffered a 3-2 defeat at home to group leaders, Portugal. Following Portugal’s impressive start to this Nations League campaign, it looks increasingly likely that Poland and Italy will be fighting it out to avoid relegation.

Poland are now seemingly in the driving seat as they hold home advantage here, but the hosts have registered just three wins from their last 12 matches in all competitions. Throw in a disappointing World Cup campaign and they’re by no means guaranteed of all three points in this clash.

Italy have made an equally slow and uninspiring start to their Nations League campaign following a 1-1 draw at home with Poland and then also falling to defeat to Portugal in a 1-0 loss last time out.

New manager, Roberto Mancini, has been tasked with getting Italy to a major tournament following their World Cup qualifying debacle which saw the Azzurri ultimately miss out on the finals in Moscow after losing to Sweden in the play-offs.

With just one win from their last 10 matches in all competitions, Italy are seemingly now just a shadow of their former selves, and they need to at least avoid relegation from Group 3 in order to restore some level of national pride and belief, starting with Sunday night’s match in Poland.

This may be easier said than done though as the Italians have lost four of their last five away matches with losses at Sweden, Argentina, France and Portugal .

As neither side come into clash in particularly sparkling form, my betting tips advise backing the draw as the value proposition.
