Italy face a trip to Holland on Monday in their biggest test since Nations League group games against eventual competition winners Portugal in 2018. After surprisingly failing to qualify for the last World Cup, the Azzurri has undergone an important rebuild since.

Roberto Mancini has overseen most of that, with just two defeats in his 19 matches as head coach at the time of writing. Unsurprisingly, he's enjoying the highest PPG (2.26) of his managerial career right now but that pales into insignificance if they can't win big matches like this.

Will they prove their mettle against the Netherlands, who lost to Portugal in last summer's Nations League Final? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Netherlands vs Italy Betting Tips

After cruising past their opposition in their Euro 2020 (now rescheduled to summer 2021) qualification group, Italy won all ten Group J games. March friendly fixtures against England and Germany were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and would have given them a fairer barometer of their progress.

However, Group 1 of this year's Nations League presents its own challenges too: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Netherlands and Poland – no easy nations to steamroll here. As for Monday's hosts, they're unbeaten in their last six matches having qualified for next summer's European Championships.

Although Ronald Koeman had overseen development among the Oranje camp, he has departed for Barcelona's managerial vacancy. Dwight Lodeweges, who spent 15 months with their under-20s, takes charge of the senior side for the first time over this international break.

This should be interesting. Watch out for a motivated bunch after last month's Champions League frustrations (Memphis Depay, Frenkie de Jong, Marten de Roon and Hans Hateboer).

Netherlands vs Italy Correct Score Predictions

In eight previous H2H meetings, Italy narrowly edge it with three wins (two draws, two defeats).

Their last win though, came in 2017 – during the aforementioned rebuild phase – and it'll be interesting to see how it translates with a different crop of players here. I'm going safe with BTTS between two top footballing nations eager to prove themselves ahead of an important year in 2021.
