Netherlands vs Italy Soccer Betting Prediction

Absent at Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup, the Netherlands is just coming out of a very complicated period. Taken in hand by Ronald Koeman, has since returned to the place and can count on the presence of certain trailers (van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Memphis) and the arrival of a new generation (De Ligt, De Jong, Van der Beek). Present in group C of the qualifiers for the next Euro, the Oranjes finished in 2nd place, with 2 small points behind Germany, and are therefore qualified for the European Championship. They also performed well in the 1st Nations League but lost in the final against Portugal. Last Friday, the Netherlands got off to a good start in this Nations League by winning, at home, against Poland (1-0) for the first of the former deputy Lodeweges (62 years old) who replaces Koeman who left for Barça.

Italy experienced a real cataclysm by not qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, the first missed international competition since Euro 1992. After this debacle, the Squadra Azzurra decided to turn the page with the arrival on the bench of Roberto Mancini and the renewal of the workforce. Things are going pretty well so far since Ciro Immobile’s partners have easily validated their ticket for the next European Championship (10 wins in as many matches in Group J). On the other hand, Italy missed its start in this League of Nations with this setback conceded at home against Bosnia last Friday (1-1).

Staff for Netherlands vs Italy

For this rally, the Netherlands, orphans of their coach Ronald Koeman (Barcelona), present themselves without the important defenders Blind (Ajax) and De Ligt (Juventus) and the nugget of AZ Alkmaar Myron Boadu (19 years old, 1 goal in 1 sel). Already absent in the first match, de Vrij (Inter) will forfeit again but Dumfries is available. During the qualifiers for Euro 2020, midfielder Wijnaldum (Liverpool) and striker Memphis (Lyon) was the main spearheads of the selection with 8 and 6 goals respectively. The rock of Liverpool van Dijk is present as are the midfielders of Jong (Barcelona) and van de Beek (who has just signed for Manchester United.

For Squadra Azzurra, we can point out the prejudicial absence of Parisian Marco Verratti. Summoned, the promising midfielder Tonali (who will undoubtedly leave Brescia this summer) and winger Bernardeschi (Juventus) had to forfeit, just like the defensive nugget Bastoni (Inter). Roberto Mancini has significantly rejuvenated the workforce since taking office. Long injured last season, the Chiellini frame is still present just like his friend from Juve Bonucci. Not established in the first game due to an error by Mancini, Chiellini should this time be aligned. In the midfield, Jorginho (Chelsea), Pellegrini (Roma), and Barella (Inter) took the lead. In front, Ciro Immobile (10 goals in 39 caps), huge with Lazio, should take the place of Andrea Belotti who was more distinguished during the playoffs (5 goals) but remained silent against Bosnia.
