UEFA Nations League 2022 Preview – Bite Size
Portugal v Switzerland (UEFA Nations League 2022
Portugal and Switzerland go head-to-head for 3 points in their UEFA Nations League match on Sunday. While Switzerland are hoping to avoid a second defeat in as many games in the Nations League when they travel to Lisbon, Portugal are favorites to win at home.
Portugal earned a deserved point in a 1-1 draw at rivals Spain on Thursday, and back on home soil, the Seleção will expect to post a first Nations League victory at Switzerland’s expense
Hungary v England (UEFA Nations League 2022 )
– Hungary will likely set up in their usual 3-4-2-1 formation against England with RB Leipzig’s Dominik Szoboszlai their dangerman.
Arsenal defender Ben White has pulled out of the England squad through injury.
West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen was given his maiden England call-up.
– Fikayo Tomori has been rewarded with his first England call-up since 2019 after winning Serie A with AC Milan this season.
England have a recent 4-0 win away to Hungary fresh in the memory and should again prove too strong for the Hungarians
Italy v Germany (UEFA Nations League 2022)
While Italy looked like a formidable force, recent contests like the Finalissima that saw Messi’s Argentina beat them mercilessly, have been a concern to the Azzurri.
Italy have won just one of their last five games and that was a friendly away at Turkey. It’s two defeats and two draws in their last four competitive outings.
Germany are one side to look at for World Cup success later this year and they are capable of beating the very best. That should also include this game and that’s why GERMANY TO WIN provides appeal as the best bet in this contest.
