Netherlands vs Sweden Preview

Netherlands vs Sweden

Competition – World Cup Qualifying

Stadium – Amsterdam ArenA

Date: 10th October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

This game would have been a different or easier task if things had been as the Dutch men thought they would.

Sweden’s 8-0 demolition of Luxembourg means that the Netherlands will have to beat them by 7 goals to qualify for the playoff spot.

Realistically that is an almost impossible job to perform but we expect this game to be as lively as ever.

The Netherlands could realistically call it game over already but they have decided to still try to do the impossible.

They are in line to miss their second successive international competition after missing out on Euro 2016 in France.

They will be expected by the home fans to give this game their all and we will likely see goals from both sides.

Netherlands have scored 3 goals per home game on average in this qualifying series.

The swedes can top this group if they can better France’s result and that should give them added motivation to play not just to avoid losing but also to win this game.

They have been impressive so far netting more than 2 goals per game on average in this qualifying series which is the best record in their group and one of the best in the whole of Europe.

They are been led by the impressive Marcus Berg who has already netted 8 times in this series.  He scored 4 in their last game and could be the difference for them in this game.
