UEFA Nations League A – 14-18 Nov Preview

by | Previews

With the final two group games taking place between 14-18 November in the UEFA Nations League A, a lot can be decided this weekend. Four teams are currently top of their group and in pole position to claim a place at the finals in October, whilst four other teams currently sit in the relegation places and will hope to avoid dropping into League B.

Group 1

Current group leaders, Poland, travel to the Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia to face Italy in a top of the table clash. A win for the Poles will see them qualify for the finals, but success for the Italians will see them leapfrog their opponents with just one game left to play.

When the sides met in Gdańsk last month, the game finished 0-0, and if they draw again, the Netherlands can move above them both with a win in Amsterdam against Bosnia. If the Bosnians fail to beat the Dutch, they will be relegated.

It’s a finely poised group with Italy facing Bosnia in their final game, whilst the Netherlands travel to Poland in midweek.

Group 2  

England travel to Belgium looking to beat them again and move back to the top of Group 2. A 2-1 win at Wembley in October saw the Three Lions top the group, but they were then beaten 1-0 by Denmark, which saw them drop to third place.

Defeat for England would mean they miss out on qualifying for the finals, but a win or draw would keep them in with a chance of progress still, with Iceland to face in their final group game. Denmark play Iceland at the weekend, before facing Belgium in what could be a group decider. Iceland have already been relegated to League B.

Group 3

Portugal and France are tied on the same number of points at the top of Group 3 and face each other in Lisbon on Saturday. Whoever wins that game will all but qualify for the finals, but they drew 0-0 when they met last month in Paris and another draw is likely. Portugal finish their group games with a tough trip to Croatia, whilst France welcome Sweden.

In the other weekend game, Sweden host Croatia and they must win to have any chance of avoiding relegation.

Group 4

Spain lead the group by just one point from Germany and the Ukraine. The Spanish can take a huge step closer to the finals with a win in Switzerland, whilst Germany face Ukraine in Leipzig. If the Germans can win that, it will set up a huge final game against Spain with the winner qualifying for the finals.

If Switzerland lose to Spain, they will be relegated to League B, having made the finals last time out.
