Match Preview

Netherlands find themselves in second place currently in European World Cup qualification Group A, three points off top spot, while Sweden breath down their neck in third. Danny Blind's men are just slightly ahead of the chasing pack, with Bulgaria very much in that section of the table.

    -Bulgaria 4-3 Luxembourg
    -France 4-1 Bulgaria
    -Sweden 3-0 Bulgaria
    -Bulgaria 1-0 Belarus

The home side have scored just six goals over the course of their Group A games, with four of those coming in their opener against Luxembourg. Since then, Bulgaria have netted once against France and scraped a one-goal win over Belarus, keeping only one clean sheet in four outings.

Netherlands have lost just one of their first four World Cup qualifying fixtures, which came as a result of a narrow 1-0 defeat to France at home. On their second jaunt outside of Dutch borders, Oranje managed a 3-1 victory against Luxembourg, having opened up with a 1-1 draw against Sweden.

    -Sweden 1-1 Netherlands
    -Netherlands 4-1 Belarus
    -Netherlands 0-1 France
    -Luxembourg 1-3 Netherlands

Betting Advice

Wesley Sneijder has been struggling with injuries of late, with Blind going very Premier League heavy with his squad. Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has been in form lately and should feature, with Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen included after finding his goalscoring touch in domestic action lately.

Bulgaria have been very strong at home in this qualification campaign, which should lead to the Netherlands being unable to entirely avoid taking damage during their latest away trip on their long road to the World Cup. Conceding looks likely, and therefore Both Teams To Score looks good value with BetVictor at odds of 1.91.
