Portugal: Undefeated since World Cup (Recent Form: WDDDDW)
Portugal did well on Wednesday as they beat Switzerland (3:1) in the UEFA Nations League semi-final. On Sunday, they host the Netherlands in the final at Estádio do Dragão. “The Netherlands are an excellent team. They have been playing pretty well. I've been watching them in recent matches and they have an excellent squad with great players – young players and more experienced players, which makes their team even stronger. We know that they will be quite a difficult opponent, but I think that for both Portugal and the Netherlands, this is simply what finals are like. We are positive; we are playing at home. I hope the stadium will be great, that there will be good energy, that this energy will be transmitted to us, and that everyone can be confident, because we will try to give our best. Together, we can become champions,” said Cristiano Ronaldo.
Netherlands: In good shape (Recent Form: DLWDWD)
The Netherlands appear to be in good shape and a couple of days they’ve managed to eliminate England (3:1 after an extra-time). Now it’s time for the UNL final. “Portugal will be eager and motivated, so we really have to bring our A game. Ronaldo is a phenomenon, and he showed again this season at Juventus that he can score from anywhere. But you shouldn't adjust your entire tactics for him, because Portugal have other great players too. We'll just have to focus on our own tasks and make sure Portugal can't dictate play,” said Matthijs de Ligt.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
To sum up, it seems that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Both teams are in good form and play offensively so perhaps this may be an open game.
