Netherlands VS North Ireland

Preview
Netherlands and Northern Ireland meet at Stadion Feijenoord, in a match for this stage of the EC Qualification (Qualifying Round). There is no recent record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams. The last head‑to‑head was played on 02‑06‑2012 and ended with the final score: Netherlands (6‑0) Northern Ireland.

Analysis of Netherlands

The home team is currently in the 3rd position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have won an away match against Germany by (2‑4). In the last round, they have won an away match against Estonia by (0‑4). Netherlands has won 5 and lost 2 of the last 7 home matches. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have only turned the score around in 3.

The Netherlands start this match motivated after a 0-4 win in a game against Estonia, thus adding the second triumph in this phase of access to the 2020 UEFA European Championship: the team's goals were scored by Babel (2), Depay and Wijnaldum. In this match against Northern Ireland, Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman should keep the team in 4-3-3 favoring a style of game towards possession and looking for space in the corridors. Babel, Donyell Malen and Memphis Depay are expected to make up the striking front of the ''Clockwork Orange'', with the first two athletes cited as being very strong in transporting the ball to the other side of the field and the latter very competent at finishing time. All usual players are available for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Cillessen, D. Dumfries, M. de Ligt, D. Blind, V. van Dijk, M. de Roon, G. Wijnaldum, F. de Jong, S. Bergwijn, M. Depay, R. Babel.

Analysis of Northern Ireland

The away team is currently in the 2nd position, with 12 points won, after 4 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have won an away match against Belarus by (0‑1). In the last round, they have lost a home match against Germany by (0‑2). In the last 8 away matches Northern Ireland has won 2, tied 3 and lost 3. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Northern Ireland heads into this match after a 0-2 loss against Germany, their first loss in this qualifying round. Still, we note that the Irish have a very positive competition, as they have won 4 of the 5 games played. "Mister" Michael O'Neill is expected to act in a defensive strategy, seeking only the counterattack to exploit the enemy's back. Midfielder Steven Davis is the star of this Northern Ireland, player who has scored 2 goals and conceded 1 assist. The entire squad is available for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: B. Peacock-Farrell, C. Cathcart, J. Evans, M. Smith, C. Evans, P. McNair, G. Saville, S. Ferguson, S. Dallas, S. Davis, K. Lafferty.

Betting suggestion:

This is an important match for the Netherlands as it needs to win and put pressure on the top-ranked teams, meaning it is expected to approach the match with few defensive concerns. When playing at home, the ''Clockwork Orange'' usually acts very offensive and creates several chances to score goals, while Northern Ireland have nothing to lose in this match, looking for counterattacks to create danger. That said, we admit a very open and interesting game for the public, making betting on the ''Plus 2.5 Goals'' market a good choice.
