Netherlands vs Germany Preview

This is a soccer classic. Two big nations, who have a rich history and have produced numerous players which defined the game, are meeting tomorrow in the first round of the EURO 2020 qualifications. Not so long ago, these two sides played in the UEFA’s Nations League, and Oranje had more success. It seems that the Dutch team is slowly starting to grow and to create a new generation which will launch them back into the orbit. Things are a little different with Germans.

Netherlands Preview

Ronal Koeman brought back the faith in the national team after several big disappointments this nation suffered. The former bomber of Barcelona, which whom he won the Champions League, formed a squad which plays excellently in the recent times. Oranje has only one defeat in the past 10 matches, and that was in France in the UNL, but we need to say that they got even in the reverse leg. At home, the Netherlands has four straight wins, three latest without a goal conceded. The defensive line is led by one of the most gifted players in the world, Virgin Van Dijk. During that victorious stretch at home, the Dutch offense scored 11 goals, and the opponents were among others France and Germany.

Germany Preview

Something is not right with the Germans. Yes, there is a change of generations, but still, they aren’t playing as they should. When counting the World Cup in Russia, this team has only one win away from the native soil in seven contests, and what is worse for them they failed to score in four of them. The most recent game from three days ago with Serbia exposed numerous weaknesses of this team, and the biggest one is the offensive line. It seems that Timo Werner doesn’t have the quality to play the central attacker, and that compared to his predecessors, RB Leipzig’s striker isn’t anywhere near. P.S. The defense isn’t shining either, as the Germans recorded 1-5 goal difference on the road in the UEFA Nations League.

Netherlands vs Germany Head to Head

The Germans have a better record when looking all 42 matches. Die Mannschaft won 15 times, 16 games ended with a draw, while Netherland has 11 triumphs. But in the last three events, Joachim Low’s side couldn’t record a victory (2D, 1L). The most recent game at Amsterdam Arena finished 3-0 for Oranje.

Netherlands vs Germany Predictions and Betting Tips

We expect a win of the hosts here, and we aren’t going to wait until the end of the text to tell you that. It is logical at the current situation to back them up, because their form is heading upwards, while on the other hand, Germany has many problems. The momentum is simply on the side of the home team. As for efficiency, we don’t believe in seeing many goals here, which means that a moderate one is the best solution for all the punters. Germany could end up without scoring a goal in this one, and that is why we suggested this.
