UEFA NATIONS LEAGUE FINAL: We preview Sunday’s UEFA League Final between PORTUGAL v NETHERLANDS with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
PORTUGAL V NETHERLANDS
7.45pm This is going to be an excellent Nations League Final! Both sides scored three and conceded one in their semi-finals against Switzerland and England, although Netherlands needed extra time to beat England. Ronaldo banged in a hat-trick and comes into the Final in great form – very important considering how important he is to Portugal! This Netherlands side has really improved though and they are building for the future after missing the last two Major Tournaments. This should be a cracking game.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Portugal 2.5, Netherlands 3.2 and the draw is 3.35. While both sides have some excellent attacking options, most of their success is built on being rock solid at the back. That is usually the case in International football these days; we very often see teams take a cagey approach and it usually gets results. Tonight might be a little different given it’s a one off Final and a draw is no good; however we can’t see many mistakes at the back from either side.
If you want to stop Portugal, you have to stop Ronaldo. That will be Netherlands main focus at the back, but as we seen on Wednesday night – stopping one of the best players in the world is easier said than done! We can expect both sides to put defence before attack tonight, at least to start with – before the game opens up a little in the second half.
Under 2.5 goals looks priced well at 1.8 and we see no real value there. We can only see a very close game here between two excellent sides and it could turn into a very tactical affair. Portugal look a little skinny at 2.5, but we like the draw at 3.35 which looks great value. It’s definitely worth checking the price of 1-1 in the Correct Score market closer to kick off too.
