The UEFA Nations League kicks off on Thursday the 11th of October 2018 with some exciting matches to look forward to.
Monday 15 October
Things are not looking good for the Icelandic Vikings as they sit rooted to the foot of Group 2 in League A, losing both their opening two matches (6-0 away to Switzerland and 3-0 at home to Belgium). At the time of writing, Iceland are winless in nine matches, including a winless run in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Switzerland play Belgium before they face Iceland, but will be confident heading into this game, despite what might happen on Friday. The Swiss bulldozed their way past Iceland before and should do enough to grind another victory. Get on the away win here.
After a disappointing World Cup, Spain appointed Luis Enrique and as expected, the former Barcelona mentor has taken the 2010 world champions forward. They beat England at Wembley last month and smashed six past Croatia a few days later.
Gareth Southgate has set one eye on Euro 2020 preparations as the English boss opted to call a few new faces to the national team, including Leicester City’s James Maddison. Enrique has also called up a few youngsters, and in Spain, I simply give England no chance here. Back the home side.
Tuesday 16 October
World champions, France, have simply been untouchable in the last year, enduring a 13-game unbeaten run, including success at the FIFA World Cup. Germany did manage to hold France after the World Cup, but looking at Joachim Low’s team selected, they could fall short against the mighty Les Bleus.
Kylian Mbappe has been phenomenal this season, while N’Golo Kante and Antoine Griezmann have also looked sharp. It will certainly be a cagey affair, but France are backed to win.
