Wales vs Netherlands
UEFA Nations League
Date: Wednesday, 8 June 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.

Wales is set to host Netherlands in a match of League A in Group 4 at UEFA Nations League. They will be locking horns this Wednesday at Cardiff City Stadium.

Wales come here on the back of a 2-1 away loss to Poland in the opening game of Group 4. That loss made them to sit at the third spot with no points in hand along with Belgium. They topped their group ahead of Finland, Ireland and Bulgaria in the last edition to validate his promotion to this elite status.

Wales’ most important fixture in June was their World Cup play-off final. They won that game against Ukraine by 1 goal to nil and booked a berth for Qatar 2022 World Cup. The hosts have been on a persistent run of goal-scoring form, finding the back of the net in each and every one of their last 6 matches.

On the other side, Netherlands go into this game following on from a 4-1 Nations League win with the downing of Belgium in their most recent match. That result fixed them at the top of group with 3 points added to their name.

In recent months, the Dutch side have won their ticket to the 2022 World Cup by beating Turkey by 2 small points. Goals have been celebrated 25 times in the last 6 matches in which Netherlands have sent out their troops, giving an average of 4.17 goals per fixture.

Wales vs Netherlands Prediction

Wales have lost only once from their last 11 games across various venues. They are also on a 6-game unbeaten run at home while inviting this visitor. But they were unable to secure a win against the Dutch side in the 7 games played in the past.

Meanwhile, Netherlands are currently on a 10-game unbeaten run across various tournaments. They have also been sturdy on road, unbeaten since the last 6 away fixtures.

With a dominant h2h stat and away form, we feel that an away win is likely to occur this Wednesday.
