Nations League - Football: Friday preview

There are seven Nations League fixtures to come on Thursday, with European giants Germany in League A action against Hungary.

Finland will face Romania in League B Group 3, while there are other matches to come from Leagues C and D.

What

Germany v Hungary, Group A3 Nations League

Where

Red Bull Arena, Leipzig

When

19:45, Friday 23rd September 2022

Odds

Germany 1/4, Draw 5/1, Hungary 9/1

Top spot up for grabs in Leipzig

Germany and Hungary will clash in Leipzig on Friday in Nations League Group A3, and the winner will have the honour of sitting top of the pile.

Hungary have defied all the odds to sit top of the group after four matches, and their two victories over England have given them a springboard to push on for the rest of the autumn.

Germany coach Hansi Flick helped his side win all seven of the World Cup qualifiers that he was in charge of, but the Nations League campaign has not been plain sailing.

Die Mannschaft were held to three consecutive 1-1 draws, but they ended that run by smashing Italy 5-2 at Borussia-Park in June.

Flick has yet to lose a match while in charge of Germany, and a win will help his side move to the top of the standings with one game to play.

Hungary's rise through the ranks has been remarkable, with Marco Rossi's side earning back-to-back promotions to move from League C to League A.

Rossi's team have defended their goal impeccably over the last few months, and they managed to keep clean sheets against England in both of their matches in June.

Germany only managed one shot on target against them during their 1-1 draw, and Friday's game promises to be a close affair.

A draw and under 3.5 goals appeals at 13/2, while under 2.5 goals is priced at 7/5.

Time running out in Group B3

Third-placed Finland welcome fourth-placed Romania to Helsinki on Friday night, and it looks like one of the two teams could be in danger of being relegated.

Finland have averaged one point from their opening four fixtures, while Romania are only one point behind them.

A defeat for the Eagle-owls could put them in a precarious position ahead of their final match against Montenegro.

Finland started with a spring in their step after a 1-1 draw with Bosnia-Herzegovina was followed up with a 2-0 victory over Montenegro. However, they have since lost successive matches to Romania and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and their home form is a worry.

Markku Kanerva's side have only won two of their previous ten at home, but they face a Romania outfit with the exact same record on the road.

All signs point to two teams cancelling each other out, and a 1-1 draw is available at odds of 5/1.

Bosnia-Herzegovina 7/10, Draw 5/2, Montenegro 15/4

All to play for in Zenica

Bosnia-Herzegovina can secure top spot in League B Group 3 on Friday, as long as they beat Montenegro in Zenica.

Friday's battle could be one of the most entertaining fixtures this weekend, with both sides able to finish top of the pile.

Bosnia-Herzegovina were once in League A, but their relegation means they are fighting to return to the big time under coach Ivaylo Petev.

Eight points from four matches is certainly a strong start, but their hard work could be unravelled if they lose to Montenegro on home soil.

Bosnia-Herzegovina will want to give their fans something to cheer about after missing out on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and after enduring four straight defeats at the turn of the year, they have enjoyed a five-match unbeaten run since March.

Home wins against Luxembourg, Romania and Finland have lightened the mood of their fans, but they will be up against it when they face Montenegro.

They have won three of their last five, keeping a clean sheet in all of those victories. Last time out, they cruised to a 3-0 success away at Romania, with Stefan Mugosa netting a hat-trick during that fixture.

He will be supported in attack by Vukan Savicevic and Stevan Jovetic, while former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is the man that will lead the line for Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Both teams to score is available at odds of 11/10.

Elsewhere in the Nations League on Friday, Georgia host North Macedonia in League C Group 4 at 17:00. The two sides sit first and second, respectively, and North Macedonia could move level on points with their hosts with a victory.

Bulgaria and Gibraltar will clash at 19:45 in the same group, while in League D Group 2, Estonia will host Malta, knowing a victory will secure promotion to the third tier.
