Netherlands – Northern Ireland, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NETHERLANDS - NORTHERN IRELAND
Netherlands were brilliant against Germany. The tulips made a huge comeback and totally outplayed the Germans at their own home for one half. The class in the team is undeniable, but they have not achieved anything yet. Interestingly, in some areas of the pitch Netherlands does not have the required class. Players like de Jong, van Dijk, Depay and de Ligt are key to the team and without them everything in the Netherlands is changing.
Northern Ireland are a defensive team that managed to win all 4 games before going into another 4 with Netherlands and Germany. This is precisely what indicates that the team is not playing bad under pressure. However, many of these players play in England, where the intensity is serious. Guests here will come up with specific tactics to stop the raids of the Dutch. It is certain that they will look for the point in the match.
Expert view : The Northern Ireland coach said they knew how to take advantage of the tension in Netherlands. According to him, there is tension in the team of tulips, as they have not qualified in a large forum for a long time and now if they did not make it would be absurd. The Dutch have become accustomed to scoring a lot of goals lately, but soon they haven’t faced a team like Northern Ireland. We think that not many goals will be scored and if the hosts win it will be more difficult and maximum with 2 goals difference. Prediction – Northern Ireland +2.5 AH at 1.60.
Northern Ireland have no loss with more than 2 goals difference in official matches since 2011
Northern Ireland has no loss by more than 2 goals against Netherlands
