Netherlands vs Estonia Euro 2020 qualifiers

The home side will be looking to clinch qualification to next summer’s finals as they round off their campaign at home to Estonia, who have already been eliminated.

Predictions

The Netherlands have recovered from losing their opening group game at home to Germany by winning away to Die Mannschaft and winning their other group games to date.

Ronald Koeman’s side are strong favourites to join Germany in progressing automatically from the group while Northern Ireland are likely to go into a playoff spot.

Estonia have won just one point in their seven qualification matches to date – a recent 0-0 draw away to Belarus, who they trail by three points.

Karel Voolaid’s side look certain to finish bottom of the qualification group and are unlikely to pull off a shock result in this clash.

The hosts will be strong favourites to record a convincing win due to possessing home advantage,alongside holding vastly superior form and quality over Estonia.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be relatively comfortable – a 2-0 triumph for Ronald Koeman’s side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

The home side laboured to victories over Northern Ireland and Belarus in their recent matches while Estonia are a side who like to sit deep and offer little goalscoring threat. The visitors have just two goals to their name in seven qualification matches while the hosts are reliant on the unreliable forwards Memphis Depay, Luuk de Jong and Ryan Babel, making this among the best online betting odds for the matchday.

The Liverpool midfielder has scored four goals in his last four international appearances and has scored six goals for the Netherlands across the past 12 months. He is a player who likes to run from deep into the opposition penalty area and is well priced to add to his goal tally here.

Statistics
