FCnaija Hotpicks Episode 2
In this week’s FCNaija Hotpicks (Episode 2), we preview the UEFA Nations League 2022 action, brought to you by Moniebet.
Switzerland V Spain ( Fcnaija hotpicks )
The UEFA Nations League returns with another set of matches this week as Spain take on Switzerland on Thursday. Spain were inches away from winning their maiden UEFA Nations League title last year and will want to go a step further this time around.
Switzerland are on a roll when it comes to hitting the back of the net in top-flight home games, doing so in each of their previous 16, though they have also conceded in 14 of these encounters
We predicting Switzerland 1 – 2 Spain

Portugal V Czech Republic (fcnaija hotpicks)
Portugal have an exceptional squad but are yet to meet expectations in Europe. The Fernando Santos side has relied heavily on Ronaldo in the past and will need their talisman to be up to the task again on Thursday.
For Czech Republic, they put in a massive shift against Spain and are capable of holding their own against Europe’s best teams. Portugal are the better team on paper, however, and hold the upper hand going into this game.
Our Prediction is Portugal to win to Nil
Portugal v Czech Republic Head to Head

Austria V France (fcnaija hotpicks)
Austria had been on a dreadful run of form on their own patch, drawing three and losing six of their previous nine top-flight fixtures, so a visit from France is hardly ideal.
Speaking of the visitors, although they have not been the force of old recently, they have still triumphed four times in seven UEFA Nations League trips. They have also been providing plenty of entertainment recently, as no fewer than 14 of their last 14 games have delivered a minimum of three goals.
