Italy v Belgium live stream: How to watch Nations League third-place play-off online and on TV

Romelu Lukaku of Belgium battles for possession with Giorgio Chiellini of Italy

Italy take on Belgium in the UEFA Nations League final on Sunday afternoon, in a repeat of the EURO 2020 quarter-final.

The Italians were the winners on that night on their way to winning the entire tournament, but lost to Spain in the Nations League semi-final earlier this week, meaning they missed out on a place in the final of Europe’s newest international competition.

Belgium, meanwhile, threw away a two-goal lead against France, ultimately losing 3-2 thanks to a stoppage-time winner from AC Milan full-back Théo Hernandez.

When is kick-off?

The match kicks off at 14:00 BST on Sunday 10 October, taking place at the Juventus Stadium in Turin, Italy.

What TV channel is it on?

Italy v Belgium will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Football in the UK.

Team news

Leonardo Bonucci misses out for Italy having been off during the first-half of the defeat to Spain, while Mancini has recently employed Federico Bernardeschi as a false nine up-front having seemingly lost faith in Ciro Immobile or Andrea Belotti to lead the line.

Belgium seem certain to start with a fearsome attack of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard, meanwhile, as they stick to the 3-4-3 shape which Roberto Martinez has preferred in recent months.

Predicted line-ups

Italy: Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Chiellini, Bastoni, Emerson; Jorginho, Barella, Verratti; Chiesa, Bernardeschi, Insigne.

Belgium: Courtois; Alderweireld, Denayer, Verthongen; Carrasco, Witsel, Tielemans, Castagne; De Bruyne, Lukaku, E. Hazard.

Odds

Italy: 6/5

Draw: 5/2

Belgium: 5/2

Prediction

Italy proved themselves to be the better side just a few months ago, and with home advantage here, should be victorious again. 2-1 to the Italians.
