EUROPE: UEFA Nations League - League A - Play Offs - 3rd place

Italy, after winning the EURO, will try to win another medal prize. This time, in the Nations League, where unfortunately they will "only" fight for third place.

The semi-final match against Spain at home did not go well at all, when they were already 0:2 down after the first half and Bonucci got a red card. Yes , the red card has already ended all the hopes of Italy to advance to the final, but 1:2 in 10 against Spain I think it is quite good.

But now they face a completely different opponent, Belgium, who are very hungry and after an unbelievable bad luck in the semifinal, where they were leading 2:0 against France, they lost 2:3 with a goal in the last minute, then Lukaku scored a goal for 3:2 in the 88th minute , but unfortunately, VAR disallowed goal.

Looking at the odds , Italy is the favourite. But that's mainly because Lukaku and Eden Hazard won't play for Belgium. These two players, along with de Bruyne, have long been the biggest offensive weapons. Without these two players, Belgium will be half as good. Another aspect that favours the Italians is the size of the squad. While they can get players of the same quality off the bench, Belgium, with all due respect, doesn't have much besides the starting 11 and the bench is far from the level of Belgium's top players.

The last match between the two teams was at this year's EURO, where the Italians won 2-1. In this match, the Belgians scored the only goal from a penalty and were goal by Italy disallowed by VAR. So I think the Italians are the better team and I believe they will confirm that today.
