UEFA Nations League
ITA vs POR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Portugal will play their first ever UEFA Nations League match against Italy on Monday. What promises to be a thrilling encounter from the start will see the Selecao das Qunitas trying to find their way to defend their Euro 2016 title. Portugal, may find that the time is upon them to start preparing for the future without Cristiano Ronaldo. Cristiano Ronaldo has been delivering on multiple occasions for his nation but now that the age factor is coming into the way, a new generation of Portuguese players have to be trained for the next World Cup. However, Portugal’s world cup run ended sooner than most of football fans expected and it that short journey, it showed one thing clearly that Portugal were dependent on one player and when that one player failed to deliver, they were out of the World Cup. This has to change if they are to retain their title or at least try to defend it.
The Azzurri on the other hand, could not even make it past in the qualifying round to play in the world cup and it was already heart breaking for them but under Robert Mancini, the team is expected to stand one again on its feet and found their lost identity on the field. Italy’s defense has been a vulnerable one and in their first ever UEFA Nations League game against Poland, they conceded first. Later in the 78th minute, they found the equalizer and the game ended 1-1. Mario Balotelli couldn’t find the back of the net however, had plenty of chances on target. This is going to be a balanced clash and Italy would start as favourites in this game.
A thrilling encounter in the UEFA Nations League, Portugal vs Italy is to be played at Estadio da Luz, Lisbon. A thrilling game awaits everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

ITA vs POR Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
In Team 1, our fantasy pick for the goalkeeper is Rui Patricio for Portugal in the first match because he was exceptional in their opening game in The UEFA Nations League against Croatia and we are expecting him to once again run the show in the back in this game as well.
The Italian trio in the defense would be a safe bet in this game because Portugal’s attack is well defined and these defenders would do a lot of blocking and saving in the game.
Bernardo Silva’s ongoing form making him a crucial player in the midfield for Team 1.
Andre Silva has been appointed as the vice captain because he has scored one goal in the 3 international friendly games he has played for Portugal. if we are to go about his league stats, he has found the back of net thrice in the three games he had featured in La Liga.
Lorenzo Insigne is the captain because of the destructive form he is in with the ball. He has a pass completion rate of 86.9% and have scored 1 goal in the three matches he had appeared for in Serie A.
In Team 2, we have just made two changes in the starting lineup we have provided in Team 1. We have brought along Gianluigi Donnarumma in the goal at Rui Patricio’s expense and we have included Ruben Neves in the squad in the place of Lorenzo Insigne which is a bit of a gamble but Ruben Neves has also earned his spot for Portugal as his current form with his club Wolverhampton Wanderers is excellent at the moment and we are backing him to contribute a lot in this game.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
The Azzurri will start this game as favourties and we are backing them to win this game.
