Our Prediction:

Netherlands will win

Belarus – Netherlands Match Prediction | 13-10-2019 12:00

In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 8 of the last 9 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 6 out of 9 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In the last 9 home matches for all competitions, the Netherlands won 7 and lost 2. In 15 games, they only got 1 comeback in the 7 games in which they suffered the first goal. The team comes to this match after a draw away with Germany by (2-2). The home team had direct access to this group stage, so they will play their first match in this edition of the competition. This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium. The team has conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, so their defense needs to improve, but their attack has scored regularly , since they scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.

Oranje have seen just one loss in nine outings across competitions and Ronald Koeman will now want to build on such team spirits, where they enjoy a great moment. Theyve been scoring numbers of goals on the regular and the attacking line led by Depay, de Jong, and Babel will surely have the rivals with their hands full now.

Cruyff won three European Cups with Ajax as a player and he clinched the European Cup with Barcelona as a coach. However, many people consider Johan Cruyff the best player in the history of Dutch football. A number of top-class players were part of the Netherlands national team that won the Euro 1988 trophy, with the likes of Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten, Frank Rijkaard and Erwin Koeman all starting the match against the Soviet Union.

But even with the significant BATE contingent, Belarus will offer very little to endanger Oranje, who will get their much-needed high-scoring victory. For some odd reason, Belarus was never able to translate club success to the national team level. With this in mind clubs like BATE Borisov, who have surprised the likes of Bayern Mnchen in the Champions League, have done quite well in the international context. This is even odder given that not unlike the Soviet Union Belarus likes to centralise its player selection on the big clubs drawing several players from BATE Borisovof the current 23 player squad six players are playing for BATE.

Anton Saroka, a striker, also had a fine showing in the UNL, grabbing three goals of his own as well as two assists. He registered five times in the UNL, only one off highest scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic of Serbia. They will need each of them to be exemplary to carry that over to this match, however. One of the top scorers in the entire Nations League ended up being Stanislau Dragun, and the midfielder will be a bright spot for his side here, or at least his nation will hope as much.

Highlighted Player (Mikhail Gordejchuk):

Holland was one of the great absences of the European Championship of 2016 and now seeks not to fail access to the next Euro. However, we must underline that one of the great highlights of the team is the midfielder Frenkie de Jong: this player is a possessor of great technical quality and passing. Normally coach Ronald Koeman plays in 4-3-3, with Memphis Depay being the teams most offensive reference. For this game the coach can count on all his players. We remember that the Dutch come to this game motivated, after having won access to the final phase of the League of Nations.

It should be noted that the visitors won Group 2, with 14 points, gaining access to the C League of that competition. Without great absences, Belarus must act in maximum strength. In this game against the Netherlands, coach Igor Kriushenko is expected to play in the usual 4-3-3, privileging defensive organization and counterattacks. In addition, the Belarusian team will use the flanks to create danger: Pavel Savitskiy is a very fast and eximio player in the transport of the ball. The Belarusian team comes to this game motivated by a triumph, by 0-2, in the displacement to the San Marino field, in a game for the League of Nations.

After impressing in the UEFA Nations League, Netherlands will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they welcome Belarus at their Stadion Feijenoord on Thursday evening. Anyhow, seeing that the Belarusians managed to keep a clean sheet in previous six competitive games, we do not believe that fans will see a high-scoring affair at Stadion Feijenoord. Memphis Depay is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders, but Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is undisputedly the teams key player. In previous two meetings between the two teams the Orange emerged triumphant. The Orange are determined to bring glory days back and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in their opener. Belarus, on the other hand, were producing fine performances in the UEFA Nations League as well, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Netherlands.
