Netherlands vs Luxembourg
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group A)
Date: Friday, 9th June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: De Kuip, Netherlands.
Most football fans would call this game a mismatch because of the difference in quality of the two teams and to be sure the Netherlands will be expected to record a big victory over their opponents in this game.
We can get the price of as much as 1/50 for Netherlands to win which should tell you everything about this game. In short an away win or even a draw would go down as one of the biggest shock results in the history of world football.
Netherlands won 3-1 in the reverse fixture in this group. But the Netherlands no matter how good they are in this game have a serious problem not to qualify for the World Cup. They are 4th on 7 points and three behind Sweden in 2nd and a qualifying position but of course they also have the problem of Bulgaria in-between them.
At home they lost 1-0 to group leaders France but they did beat Belarus 4-1 and will be 100% motivated to win this game.
Luxembourg as expected are bottom of the group with just 1 point from their 5 games played. Away from home they have put up a fight with a 4-3 loss to Bulgaria and a 1-1 draw against Belarus but Luxembourg are yet to face the stronger sides in the group. They have conceded 12 goals from their five games.

Netherlands vs Luxembourg: Prediction
With value short the best markets to get on will be the goal scorer’s one. Davy Klaasen could be good value at 10/11 and Arjen Robben is priced up at 1/2 to score anytime. Luxembourg are 4/11 to start with a 5 goal start. But we like the 1/2 for Netherlands to win and over 3.5 goals.
