Netherlands to beat Poland
We start in Group A4 and league leaders Netherlands taking on 3rd placed Poland. The Dutch have won their opening two fixtures smashing Belgium 4-1 and then winning in injury time away at Wales. Here, they return to Rotterdam for a match in front of their own fans, against a Poland outfit that were demolished by Belgium 6-1 last time out.
Louis van Gaal's men are unbeaten since they were knocked out of Euro 2020 by the Czech Republic this time last year and are playing some tremendous football. Poland finished 2nd in England's World Cup qualification group and then beat Sweden to qualify for Qatar, so while they are no mugs, I just can't see them troubling the Oranje here.
Belgium to beat Wales
The other game in the group sees Belgium travel to the Cardiff City stadium to face Wales. The Dragons have gone from the high of winning their World Cup play-off against Ukraine and securing their place at the finals for the first time for 64 years, to losing both their opening Nations League games and sitting rock bottom of the group. Rob Page and his charges worked incredibly hard to get into the A Group and will be loathe to see an instant relegation.
Belgium have had a mixed start to this campaign, losing 4-1 at home against the Dutch before spanking Poland 6-1 away. Kevin de Bruyne and a few others have spoken up about glorified friendlies, so one has to question how seriously The Red Devils are taking this tournament but the 2nd best team in the world should have too much for Wales here and I'm siding with them in this one.
Scotland to beat Ireland
We have a full Match Preview for this domestic dust up on site and as mentioned there we will be taking the Scots in this one. Ireland have a pathetic record in the Nations League and Stephen Kenny is a man under severe pressure.
Ukraine to beat Armenia
In the other game in Group B1, Ukraine face Armenia in Lodz, Poland. With games impossible in Ukraine for obvious reasons, this game is being played on neutral ground and Ukraine will be confident of picking up another three points, having defeated Ireland last time out. Ukraine seem to have put their World Cup heart break behind them and should have too much for Armenia here.
The Armenians have won just two of their last 13 games, while Ukraine have only lost once, against Wales, since they were knocked out of Euro 2020 at the quarter final stage by a rampant England.
