In the space of five days, over 50 European countries will go head-to-head in different games across the continent. The UEFA Nations League tournament which started on the 3rd of September is set to continue over the weekend.
While some are still searching for their first win, others are trying to remain top of the table. As club football takes a back seat in the next few days, here are Nations League games you can add to your bet slip this weekend:
England vs. Belgium
The last time these two sides clashed, it was in Brazil. At the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament, Belgium defeated England twice. Both games featured less than three goals each but things have changed since.
Five of England’s last seven games have seen at least three goals scored while Belgium have scored first in eight of their last 10.

France vs. Portugal
This is yet another game that will trigger a lot of memories for some of the players. Although France are currently the world champions in football, that victory came after a bitter loss to Portugal, in front of their home crowd, two years before.
France have scored five.

It was the first and only time Portugal managed to defeat Portugal at this stage of the game. Meanwhile, France have managed five wins in their history against Portugal.
Italy vs. the Netherlands
The goals have been rare in the group housing these two sides. For instance, bottom-placed Bosnia has only conceded three goals, while table-toppers, Italy, have only scored twice in two games. Call it a cagey affair and you won’t be far from the truth.
And the caginess of this fixture will continue if the history between the two sides is anything to go by. Only one of the last six meetings between both sides has seen three goals scored. In that same run of games, three finished in a draw. How many times did both teams score? Three times, out of six.
Croatia vs. France
This will be the return leg of the first UEFA Nations League clash between these two heavyweight sides. It’s also a repeat of the 2018 FIFA World Cup final, which France won by a 4 – 2 margin. When both sides meet again, Croatia will be hoping to balance out the losses incurred with a win over the French squad.
For France, it’s all about consistency as they look to finish top of their group.
