International Friendly

NED vs ITA Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Italy vs Netherlands – Looking at the profile of both the teams, it looks like a fixture worthy of at least a Euro or World Cup semifinal match.

But that’s not the case as this is just an International Friendly game and wouldn’t have taken at first place had both these teams qualified for the World Cup. Again that’s not the case but with UEFA Nations League set to kick-off in September and no fixture for both Italy and the Netherlands before that tournament, this is the last chance for both the teams to get their set-up up and running.

Both Italy and the Netherlands fell from the grace against Sweden but it was not the brilliance of Swedish footballers that these proud footballing nations are not in the world cup, but rather it’s the lack of some real talent in their ranks.

The Dutch have seen two of their biggest stars Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder retiring from the International football, while the Azzurri are finding it hard to replace their past greats such as Andrea Pirlo, De Rossi and Marchisio.

So who will come out on top in this game?

NED vs ITA Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Suspension
Italy vs Netherlands:

Italy: Roberto Mancini handed Mario Balotelli his first Italy call-up since 2014 and the former Manchester City striker failed to impress in the last game against France.

He is expected to be benched in this game with the likes of Ciro Immobile, Belotti and Insigne ahead of him in the pecking order.

This is the time to test the bench strength and we are expecting Mattia Perin to start between the posts, replacing Gianluigi Donnarumma and Salvatore Sirigu.

Netherlands: Ronald Koeman seems to prefer a three-man defense in his Netherlands set-up and is expected to do the same against Italy.

Quincy Promes scored on Thursday night to rescue a late draw for the Netherlands, while Liverpool duo Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum remained unused substitutes. Both of them are expected to start in this game. Mathias de Ligt is the one layer to keep an eye on.

We are also expecting the in-form Lyon star Memphis Depay to start with Ryan Babel or Wout Weghorst.

  2. The Dutch may have missed out on the World Cup, but they finished their qualifying campaign in an outstanding way. They have lost just two of their last 12 games coming into this match, winning 9 times.
  3. Italy need to find their scoring boots as they have scored more than 1 goal just once in the last 10 games.
  4. The Azzurri have also won just three games of the last 10 coming into this match.

 

NED vs ITA Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
There’s not a lot riding in this match but a chance for the newly appointed managers of both the countries to find their best combination possible ahead of the UEFA Nations League.

On paper, the Netherlands are certainly a better team and we are backing them not to lose this game.
