The first duel in the Round of 16 at 2022 World Cup is between Netherlands and USA, scheduled for Saturday, December 3rd. So, let's take a closer look at this match and what we can expect from it.

Netherlands vs USA Prediction – World Cup 2022

The Netherlands topped Group A with relative ease and now the USA stand in their way of yet another quarter-final appearance. The Americans made it through Group B behind an England side that they managed to hold to a goalless draw, so this might not be an easy game for the Dutch.

 

Netherlands to Win 

These two nations have locked horns five times before and the Netherlands have come away with four wins during that period. Despite losing the last encounter between the two countries 4-3 in 2015, we're backing the Dutch to beat USA on Saturday. The Americans are pretty solid at the back but don't offer an awful lot going forward and this is where the Dutch excel. The Netherlands scored 5-goals in the group stage and only conceded once, so you can see why we're backing van Gaal's men to progress.

Cody Gakpo to Score Anytime

Cody Gakpo was linked heavily with a move to the Premier League in the summer with Man Utd choosing Antony over the Dutchman in the end. That snub clearly hasn't had a negative effect on Gakpo who joined an elite list of Dutch icons when he scored in each of the three World Cup group games. We're backing Gakpo to score against the USA and fully expect a big club to come in for him in one of the next two transfer windows.

Even though Netherlands showed a lot more so far than the USA, they did have an easier group and it has to be taken into account. In any case, they are the favourites in this match, but let's take a better look at the average odds for the match now:

  • Netherlands odds: 21/20 (2.05)
  • Draw odds: 7/3 (3.33)
  • USA odds: 10/3 (4.33)

Obviously, the Netherlands is the more likely winner, but we honestly though we'd see lower odds on them. According to these average odds, the Netherlands have a win probability of 48.8% and the USA have a 23.1% win probability. Meanwhile, a draw has a probability of 30%.

When it comes to goals, the bookies don't see many goals being scored here. After all, the average odds on under 2.5 total goals are 8/13 (1.62), which is the same as a 61.9% probability. On the other hand, the odds on over 2.5 total goals are 6/4 (2.50), which implies a 40% probability.

Lastly, if you want to check some higher odds for this game, you should consider correct score betting market. If we check the average odds for this market, the most likely correct scores for Netherlands vs USA are 1-0 and 2-0 for Netherlands, as well as 1-1 draw.

Previous Meetings

These two teams met seven years ago for the last time in an exciting friendly match. And while we saw seven goals in that game which the USA won 4-3, it was a long time ago and it was a friendly game, so we can't really draw any conclusions from it.

Will Gakpo fire the Netherlands into the Quarter-Finals?

Netherlands

The Netherlands eased through Group A in the end, defeating Qatar and Senegal whilst drawing with Ecuador but like many other teams in their position, they need to be tested against a stronger side before they will believe that this is their year to finally end that World Cup hoodoo. Cody Gakpo is the star of this Dutch side, stepping in while Depay has been recovering from injury and gaining match-fitness. The PSV star scored in each of the three group games and will fancy his chances of scoring against the USA in the last 16.

When it comes to team news, the Netherlands don't have any injury concerns at the moment and we will see their best team against the USA.

Netherlands Official Lineup:

Noppert – Timber, Van Dijk, Aké – Dumfries, De Roon, F. De Jong, Blind – Klaassen – Gakpo, Depay

USA 

The Americans are never shy of confidence and will believe they have what it takes to defeat van Gaal's Netherlands. A solid defence has been the basis of the USA's progression from the group stage but there are concerns that this team lacks goals. Perhaps the USA's best chance of making it any further in the World Cup this year would be to the Dutch all the way to penalties as it is hard to see them outscoring the Netherlands during the opening 90-minutes.

Meanwhile, Christian Pulisic suffered a pelvic contusion against Iran and he is being monitored daily, but it's expected to see him start. Josh Sargent and Weston McKennie are also dealing with minor injuries, but they are more likely to play than not.

USA Official Lineup:

Turner – Dest, Zimmerman, Ream, Robinson – McKennie, Adams, Musah – Weah, Ferreira, Pulisic
