Italy v Hungary: UEFA Nations League - League Path Group 3
Italy take on Hungary this week

The UEFA Nations League returns to the fold with another round of matches this week as Italy lock horns with Hungary on Monday.

Both teams have been impressive this month and will want to win this game to secure progress to the final stages of the competition.

Italy are currently in second place in Group 3 of the UEFA Nations League standings and have made progress with their transition. The Azzurri edged England to a narrow 1-0 victory in their previous game and will look to take it up a notch this week.

Hungary, on the other hand, are at the top of their group at the moment and have been in exceptional form this year. The home side stunned Germany with a 1-0 victory over the weekend and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place in June this year and ended in a 2-1 victory for Italy. Hungary gave a good account of themselves on the day and will need to prove their mettle this week.
