European Football Reigns Supreme on Sunday with UNL ActionPublished October 11, 2020 by Florin P
Football fans brace for an avalanche of UEFA Nations League matches on Sunday when the top teams playing in League A resume their quest for the trophy.
The day that every football fan has been anxiously waiting for is upon us, with Sunday bringing a flurry of exciting matches. Once again, it is the UEFA Nations League that will keep players at the edge of their seats with two dozen games spread across the three main leagues. Arguably the best opportunities for football fans are presented by the matches played in League A, where the top European teams perform.
France and Portugal Play the UEFA Nations League Derby
France are the reigning World and European champions and the team expected by bookmakers to emerge victorious in this match. They are tied for the first place with Portugal, with each team having six points earned in two matches. This means that the winner of this match will likely win the group, so the stakes are high, but so is the temptation for a draw. France is favorite to prevail with odds of 11/10, but value of 5/2 on Portugal is not to be ignored, with bet365 Sports offering both these odds.
England and Belgium Fight in Coin Flip Match on Sunday
Arguably the most balanced match of Sunday is the first of the day, between Belgium and England. These are two of the hottest European teams and the top two performers in Group 2. Punters should expect a high scoring match where it is nearly impossible to call a winner. In fact, the two teams are so evenly matched that bet365 Sports offers identical odds of 17/10 on each of them to prevail. There is perfect balance in the head to head matches, with two victories for each team and three undecided games.
Poland and Italy Fight For Group 1 Supremacy
Polish players and fans knew right from the start that the team will have a difficult mission in Group 1, one they share with Italy and the Netherlands. The fact that they sit in the third-place isn’t surprising or to upsetting, as Poland is still within striking distance of the first place. It could overtake Italy for the lead if they win this match in which 888 Sport credits them with the second chance and odds of 3/1. Italy is favorite to win and the same bookmaker offers even odds on their triumph on the road.
Croatia and Sweden Seek First Points in the UNL
Croatia and Sweden were not expected to struggle this heavily in the UEFA Nations League, yet they lost both games so far. Any false step at this point will lead to disaster, not to mention that the two teams can no longer settle for a draw. Croatia plays at home and has a slight edge, as reflected by the odds of 9/10 offered by 888 Sport, but their form is dubious, to say the least. Sweden lost against both France and Portugal without scoring a goal and if they are to win, punters who back them will be paid at 7/2.
