Netherlands vs England
UEFA Nations League A Final Stage
Date: Thursday, 6th June 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Estádio D. Afonso Henriques (Guimarães).
Netherlands could not manage to take part in the just-concluded FIFA World Cup, and Good Lord! how they have been compensating for it.
They qualified to the semis of the Nations League after taking out world champions France off the competition. And in the process previous champions Germany was relegated off the group as well. It really cannot be better for the Dutch right now.
England did threaten to go all the way in the World Cup last year. They have the service of some great group of players – thanks to the competitive Premier League.
And now, they are just two games away from lifting the maiden Nations League for their country.
Netherlands vs England Head-to-head (h2h)
- Two of the last three matches saw the Dutch taking the win.
- England conceded two or more goals in two of the last three ties.
- Five of the last seven wins went to Netherlands as well.
- England is on a scoring streak of five fixtures.
Netherlands vs England Prediction
Despite having some generational talents in their mix, England might come short against the determined Dutch side. The pillars at the back – Mathijs De Ligt and Virgil Van Dijk is probably the best center-back partnership right now in world football, and both are in the form of their lives.
It’d be hard for Kane and his boys to get a winning score against this monster of a pair. Add to the equation the underrated goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, and it’s asking too much from England.
The Dutch also has the confidence of giving the boot to France and Germany at the same time, and it might be hard to put an end to their march right now.
But do consider the fact that England is on a winning streak of five games, and scored 18 goals from their last five fixtures, and they are on a scoring streak of five fixtures against the Dutch.
Expect both teams to find the back of the net in this highly competitive tie.
