Free Predictions & Odds for Netherlands vs Belgium

There is very little on the line in this Nations League match between the Netherlands and Belgium as both teams have booked their place in the knockout stage. The Netherlands are best placed to claim the top spot in Group 4 but a win for Belgium could see the two nations swap places.

Over 2.5 Goals

We're expecting goals in this game as three of the last seven meetings between these two countries have witnessed at least four goals scored with the Netherlands winning 4-1 in Belgium back in June. Four of the Netherlands' last five outings in the Nations League have produced over 2.5 goals while four of Belgium's last six matches in all competitions have also witnessed at least three goals scored, adding further weight to our prediction.

Both Teams to Score

There is a great chance that we will see both teams score on Sunday as that has been the case in six of the last seven meetings between the Netherlands and Belgium. Five of the Netherlands' last six outings have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard while four of Belgium's last five fixtures have also seen both teams score, so you can see just why we're not backing either team to keep a clean sheet this weekend.

Who will claim the top spot in Group 4?

The Netherlands made the trip to Poland in midweek for what was expected to be a close and competitive 90-minutes. To many people's surprise, the Netherlands kept a clean sheet and an early goal from Gakpo put the visitors in front after 13-minutes. The Dutch controlled the game, for the most part, confirming their victory with a goal on the hour mark from Bergwijn after great work from Janssen who claimed the assist.

Netherlands Predicted Lineup: Pasveer, Blind, Aké, van Dijk, Dumfries, Timber, Koopmeiners, de Jong, Depay, Bergwijn & Gakpo

Belgium used their home advantage perfectly against Wales on Thursday night, taking the lead after 10-minutes through De Bruyne. Batshuayi added a second goal before the break when De Bruyne turned provider. Wales always looked like they had a goal in them and early in the second half, Moore pulled a goal back for the visitors. Belgium didn't play with the same intensity in the second forty-five but still managed to hold on to their lad and secure all 3pts.

Belgium Predicted Lineup: Courtois, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Meunier, Debast, Witsel, De Bruyne, Carrasco, Tielemans, Hazard & Batshuayi-Atunga

Team News

Netherlands: Donyell Malen, Arnaut Danjuma, Luuk de Jong, Donny van de Beek, Ryan Gravenberch, Georginio Wijnaldum, Owen Wijndal, Hans Hateboer and Tim Krul have not made the visitors' squad for one reason or another.

Belgium: Romelu Lukaku is the big name missing from the Belgium squad due to injury.
