Italy will be trying to start another streak from scratch on Sunday when it hosts Belgium in the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League third-place match in Turin, Italy. Both teams come off crushing losses in the semifinals, where the Italians saw their record 37-game unbeaten run snapped in a 2-1 loss to Spain on Wednesday. Belgium had a 2-0 lead in its Thursday matchup with France but couldn’t hold on and suffered a 3-2 loss. Belgium is the world’s top-ranked team, while Italy is No. 5, and these teams last faced off in the Euro 2020 quarterfinals in July. Italy won that match 2-0 before beating Spain and England in penalty shootouts to win the title.
