Netherlands and Germany are two of the fiercest rivals in world football and a hard-fought contest is guaranteed when they meet in the Nations League.
Past history certainly suggests a close encounter is on the cards, with both sides winning 15 of their previous 40 head-to-head contests and 10 games being drawn.
Die Mannschaft are the stronger team right now, but Amsterdam ArenA will be buzzing and that can help the hosts to be competitive.
Punters can get 13/5 for the scores to finish level and that is our initial Netherlands vs Germany prediction.
A Look At Netherlands’ Betting Odds
After failing to qualify for the last two major tournaments, Ronald Koeman has made an encouraging start in his bid to re-establish Netherlands as a significant force.
After losing to England last March, Holland went on a four-match unbeaten run in friendlies, beating Portugal and Peru and drawing with Slovakia and Italy.
The Dutch kicked off their Nations League campaign with a 2-1 loss to France in Paris, but there were still positive signs in that performance against the World Cup winners.
Koeman can call on a strong spine, with Virgil van Dijk and Daley Blind in defence, Georginio Wijnaldum in midfield and Ryan Babel up front.
Talented wing men Quincy Promes and Memphis Depay have also come of age, so the foundations are there for a Dutch recovery.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Germany suffered a rare chastening experience at Russia 2018 when crashing out early, but last month’s international double-header helped to steady the ship.
Die Mannschaft were the better team in a goalless Nations League draw with France in Munich, with Marco Reus, Mats Hummels, Thomas Muller and Matthias Ginter all going close to breaking the deadlock.
Nico Schulz then netted late on as Germany came from behind to beat Peru 2-1 in a Hoffenheim friendly, although that was a patchy display by a much-changed line-up.
Joachim Low is likely to roll out his big guns in an experienced line-up for this trip, even if Reus has been ruled out through a knee injury.
That should help them to combat a hostile atmosphere and 13/2 for a 1-1 stalemate is added to our Netherlands vs Germany betting tips.
France 2-1 NETHERLANDS – Babel
GERMANY 2-1 Peru – Brandt, Schulz
