Portugal faces Netherlands
Portugal faces Netherlands in the big final of the UEFA Nations League. We are going to take a good look on this clash at the Estadio Do Dragao in Porto in our winning soccer predictions. Here we go.
This is the first edition of the Nations League, so now we will have the competition’s first champion as well. Because of their European title in 2016, Portugal have the advantage to host the finals of the tournament. You can be sure that the stands in Porto will support them as much as they can.
During the 1/2-finals Portugal had to meet Switzerland. It wasn’t an easy game for the European champions, but once again it was Cristiano Ronaldo who showed spectacular class and sent his team to the final. The Juventus superstar scored a hattrick in the Swiss goal, proving once again to be the main man in his team. In the same time Ricardo Rodriguez’ goal from a penalty kick was far from enough for Switzerland.
After a disastrious qualifying campaign, which left Netherlands out of the World Cup in Russia, now the Dutch side looks revived under the management of the legendary Ronald Koeman. Once again there’s a positive mood in the team’s dressing room, which shows on the pitch. Koeman transformed Oranje into a team to be feared of again.
In the 1/2-finals Netherlands eliminated England after extra time. Marcus Rashford opened the score for the Three Lions, but the Dutch side equalised with a goal from the centre back Mathijs de Ligt. During the extra time of the game, Kyle Walker scored himself an own goal, while Quincy Promes put an end to the game with a third goal for Netherlands.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Nations League final between Portugal and Netherlands at the Estadio Do Dragao in Porto. Which team do you think will grab the title?
