Nations League: Italy with Holland, Bosnia, Poland

Italy will face the Netherlands, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Poland in the 2020-21 Nations League Group 1.

This is the second edition of the tournament and last year Roberto Mancini’s men finished second in their group behind eventual winners Portugal.

For that reason, the Nazionale were placed in Pot 2 of the draw, along with Belgium, France and Spain.

League A has been expanded this year from 12 to 16 countries, divided into four groups of four teams.

This will represent the first competitive match between the Netherlands and Italy since a 3-0 defeat during Euro 2008.

Italy already faced Poland in the Nations League last season, drawing 1-1 at home in September 2018 and winning 1-0 away in October.

The Azzurri had Bosnia and Herzegovina in their Euro 2020 qualifying group, earning a 2-1 home win and 3-0 away, both in 2019.

The fixtures will be played from September 3-November 17 2020, with the group winners taking part in the Final Four in June 2021.

Among the other groups, Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Ukraine will face off in a fascinating Group 4, while Portugal, France, Sweden and Croatia make for a tough Group 3.
