Bet on UEFA Euro 2020:
Northern Ireland vs Netherlands betting preview predicts the guest’s win
In the last game of the two teams, the Netherlands won 3-1, with the goals of Memphis Depay and Luuk de Jong. They managed to switch the game after Northern Ireland got the lead in the 75th minute. But then the home team equalized and scored two more goals in extra time. Unlucky for the Brits, but it shows how much experience and routine means with many big teams scoring at the end of the games.
The Dutch team has one of the strongest squads in Europe and is a favorite to win the whole tournament next summer. Unibet is offering 8.00 odd for their win in Euro 2020. They have players like Virgil Van Dijk, who was named the best player in the world in 2019 by UEFA. Another Liverpool player and Champions League winner Georginio Wijnaldum or Barcelona player Frenkie de Jong. Attackers Memphis Depay, Ryan Babel and Luuk de Jong are also in great form, scoring goals here and their clubs as well.
They played confidently in the group games, only losing against big rival Germany 2-3 at home. But they took revenge in Germany, winning 4-2 in a twisting game in Hamburg, scoring the last two goals in the 79th and 91st minutes. It’s not surprising that even a draw has a small chance in the Northern Ireland vs Netherlands betting preview. The odds for it are 4.50 with Unibet.
What are Northern Ireland’s chances?
At home, Northern Ireland will have a different game and tactics, and of course the support of the fans. They started the group games well, winning all of their first four games against Belarus and Estonia both home and away. They couldn’t make any wonder in the games against Germany and the Netherlands, but they were not bad either. If they can improve their play and score goals, they might have a chance. But a home win would be still a big surprise. Online gambling sites in the UK are offering 8.00 odds for it.
