Netherlands vs Belgium
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 25 September 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Johan Cruijff Arena.
Netherlands and Belgium are placed in the first two spots in the group at the moment, and are battling it out each other for the top-most position, which will gift them a ticket to the semis.
The Dutch are at the top of the table, and they are unbeaten so far. In fact, disregarding a single draw, they have a 100% winning record. They also scored the most number of goals in the group, as well as conceded the least.
It also deserves to be mentioned that they are on a long series of impressive performances at home, and by all means they built a huge momentum as a result.
Do also note that they scored goals in plenty all through this stretch.
Meanwhile, the Belgians are ranked second in the world, and they are determined to snatch the first position away from Holland. However, they did lose the reverse fixture against this opponent, and that is the major reason that they are stuck below the first spot at the moment.
Going on, goals came in plenty whenever these teams locked horns in the past as well.
Judging these observations, expect a high-scoring affair between the two teams this weekend at the Johan Crujiff Arena.
