Estonia vs Netherlands
Date: Monday, 9 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: A. Le Coq Arena (Tallinn).
At the start of the campaign, it was a given that Germany and Netherlands would be making it to the top to qualify for the main tournament.
But at the moment, things have taken a slight turn. And with some minnows providing tough competition to some of the best in the world, it’s a fiesta for neutral football fans.
Northern Ireland has been a surprise contender for one of the two tickets available, and as things stand, the race should come down to the wire between them, the Germans, and our very own Dutch.
The surprise loss that the Netherlands faced at home against the 2014 World Champions has surely given them a reality check. And more than that, it has likely hurt their chances to top the group.
Consequentially, the game against Estonia is a supremely important one, and along with Belarus, they are considered as the weakest in the group.
The two have already taken themselves out of the race for the top spots, and as such the twelve points in total, these two offer is a must to be secured for a lot of the Dutch, the Germans, and the Irish.
The Netherlands are coming on the back of a 4-2 win on Friday against the Germans and cut their gap with Lowe’s men to three points. They are now on a red hot chase for one the two spots against leaders Northern Ireland from a 6 point drift.

Estonia vs Netherlands Prediction
Based on pure talent alone, the Dutch have placed themselves as one of the best in international football. With another golden generation of players once again donning the Orange, fans are hoping for the days when they used to rule the sport, to come back.
As of now, the team is in urgent need of points, and with a comparatively easier opponent like Estonia on the other half of the pitch, the squad should step up.
The hosts of the day had begun their campaign with a losing streak and arguably is already out of contention for qualification. Moreover, the Estonians have not won a tie against this opponent in the last 20 years, and disregarding a draw five years back, have lost all encounters in the mentioned period.
In addition, Holland has scored a total of 14 goals from the last six h2h clashes, while keeping clean sheets in two of the former three.
By the looks of it, the visitors should put in a majestic performance, especially since Northern Ireland and Germany are giving tough competition for the Euro tickets.
