Bulgaria has, despite poor qualification, managed to finish second-bottom in Group A in this Nations League tournament. However, taking a look at previous performance will not make one hopeful. Winning just one time in the last sixteen games they have played, including friendly ones, there is a huge chance that they will not do well in this Path A play-off. Hungary has done substantially better in their campaign to qualify, winning half their games. So far it looks like Hungary has the more capable team than the Bulgarians.
The UEFA Nations League returns this coming weekend with an immense collision featuring the World Champions, with European champion winners Portugal against France in the Stade de France on Sunday. The two teams have relished in a grand start to the UEFA Nations League campaigns, and have won both opening matches respectively.
Portugal holds the top spot in League A, Group 3, and boasts an immensely substantial goal difference in the positive; they’ll be eager to build on this good start with a better show against Les Blues. France went through a group exit at the inaugural edition of the contest in 2018, and will want to make a bolder comeback with a win over Portugal this Sunday. Another huge game of this weekend will cover Belgium vs England this Sunday at Wembley.
These two champions in the football of today have held a clash of results in the UEFA Nations League. England has sneaked a narrow win against Iceland and a zero-goal draw against Denmark. Additionally, Belgium has had zero issues, taking on two leisurely wins vs the Nordic nations, sitting pretty on League 2 Group A.
Belgium must pick up the points if it is going to face England with a fighting chance and hopes of getting into the UEFTA Nations League finals next year. Mason Greenwood Phill Foden will not be working with England and winger Raheem Sterling has been sidelined due to injury for England. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, games are being pushed to October. The UEFA Euro 2020 playoffs will go underway after what seems to be an international break of matches, being held at only four venues across the continent.
