Today, Friday, November 16 and tomorrow, Saturday, November 17, the UEFA Nations League takes centre stage as the football season heads into another international break.

No need to worry though, as JustBet previews two massive games that should be exciting and enthralling from start to finish.

The first match under scrutiny is in Holland, where World champions France are the visitors, then on Sunday we take you over to Italy to witness two top-notch teams going head-to-head as leaders Portugal seek to remain unbeaten in the group against the Azzurri's.

France will clinch top spot in their Nations League group by picking up a point against the in-form Netherlands.

Les Bleus prevailed 2-1 when these sides met in Saint-Denis a couple of months ago, but Didier Deschamps would settle for a share of the points in this one.

Holland followed up that loss in France by securing a stunning 3-0 beating of Germany in their most recent game which should give them a massive lift in confidence for this crucial game, so they are clearly back on the upward curve. After that they then earned a good 1-1 draw in a friendly with Belgium in Brussels to give them even more confidence heading into this game.

Meanwhile, France have maintained the momentum of their World Cup triumph with a four-match unbeaten run since Russia 2018, meaning they have now gone 15 matches without defeat. Les Bleus have been more workmanlike than spectacular of late, though, drawing with a sorry Germany and Iceland before they had the win over the Dutch. After winning the first meeting 2-1, the French are now on a five-match winning streak against the Dutch. Les Bleus have three clean sheets in their last five head-to-head encounters against the Dutch. However, since the start of 2017, the Dutch have scored at least twice in six of their eight home games.

The betting tip? France victory and both teams to score.

The JustBet Odds on the match are published below:

In our second match on Saturday at 2:45 local time — a rejuvenated Italy battle an in-form Portugal side for the top spot in the group.

Portugal travel to Italy knowing that a draw will probably see them topping the group and securing a place in the semi-finals with one game to go. A loss would mean they have to beat Poland in the last game, however, the European champions will want to get the business done against Italy as they have been in blistering form of late.

Italy know that top position in the group is at stake as the winner will all but secure top spot. They did well to beat Poland 1-0 away in their last group game and they are now on a quest to get revenge over Portugal for the defeat they suffered in Lisbon. Portugal will again be without Cristiano Ronaldo; however, Man City's Bernardo Silva and Sevilla's Andre Silva have been tearing it up in his absence, so his absence will have minimal effect on the team. Italy have been the dominant team in this fixture having claimed 17 wins and just 6 defeats in the 25 previous matches against Portugal.

The Portuguese, however, have had the upper hand in their recent outings with victories in the last two matches including a 1-0-win last month. Italy have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of their last 10 matches, while Portugal have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 7 games, so we can expect a low scoring affair in this one.

The betting tip? 1-1 Draw
