Netherlands vs Germany Preview

Netherlands vs Germany

Competition – UEFA Nations League

Stadium – Amsterdam ArenA

Date: 13th October 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Two European heavyweights meet in this game as they search for their first win in this competition.

From their last game, it appears as if the Netherlands would struggle to beat any of the last two World Cup winners, but this match presents them a chance to avoid being relegated from this tier after their loss to France.

Dutch football is trying to rebuild after a troubled past.  They failed to qualify for the Euros in 2016 and the World Cup this year.  In their bid to reach the next Euros, they beat Peru in a friendly game, but suffered their third loss in as many games against France in their first Euro Nations League game.

The Netherlands need a big result from this game, or they risk missing out on Euro 2020 again.

Following a tough World Cup in Russia, Germany are rebuilding well after giving Joachim Low the chance to lead them to Euro 2020.

The Germans beat Peru in a friendly and drew against France in their first Euro Nations League game, so they would be confident of getting a win in Amsterdam here.

France won away against the Dutch in their last World Cup qualifying, so Germany should be confident that they too can get all three points from this struggling Dutch side.

Netherlands haven’t won against Germany in 16 years and competitively, that run stretches to 26 years.

Bookmakers make Germany favourites on paper to come out on top while goal markets suggest this will be a lively encounter.
