Netherlands and Poland head into Friday’s Nations League clash missing a key figure apiece but this still promises to be an entertaining encounter.
Each side came through Euro 2020 qualifying in good shape and there is no reason for either to adopt a cautious approach in Amsterdam.
We reckon Evens for both teams to score is a good option for our initial Netherlands vs Poland prediction.
A Look At Netherlands’ Betting Odds
Ronald Koeman restored pride and hope to the Holland set-up after some lean years before being lured away by Barcelona.
Interim head coach Dwight Lodeweges looks very much a stop-gap solution, but having Ruud van Nistelrooy as his assistant will hopefully ensure the attacking ethos remains.
The Dutch made it all the way to the final of this event last time, topping France and Germany in a tough group before edging out England in the semis.
Netherlands lost out to Portugal in the decider but bounced back with a solid Euro 2020 campaign to qualify alongside Germany.
Two games against Die Mannschaft produced 11 games, while Holland hit the target 14 times in four home matches.
At club level, Luuk de Jong helped Sevilla to Europa League glory and Memphis Depay hit a hat-trick for Lyon in France on Friday.
Kevin Strootman, Frenkie de Jong and Donny van de Beek are creative talents in midfield, with even defenders Virgil van Dijk, Stefan de Vrij and Nathan Ake able to contribute from set-pieces.
With Lodeweges no doubt keen to make an instant impression, 13/10 for a home win and over 2.5 goals appeals from the Netherlands vs Poland odds.
A Look At Poland’s Betting Odds
Poland finished bottom of their Nations League pool two years ago but did secure useful 1-1 draws away to Portugal and Italy, so they do not suffer from travel sickness.
Jerzy Brzeczek then led the Eagles to top spot in their Euro 2020 group, with eight wins in 10 matches enough to put them six points clear of Austria.
That wasn’t the strongest of sections and talismanic striker Robert Lewandowski sits out this clash, as he recovers from Bayern Munich’s Champions League triumph.
However, Napoli front man Arkadiusz Milik and Hertha Berlin forward Krzysztof Piatek are more than capable of stepping up to the plate.
Piotr Zielinski is the pick of an industrious midfield department and West Brom’s Kamil Grosicki has always known where the nets are.
With plenty of experience at the back and Wojciech Szczesny or Lukasz Fabianski between the posts, this is a well-balanced outfit.
We think they can be competitive in defeat and 15/2 for a hard-fought 2-1 home win completes our Netherlands vs Poland betting tips.
NETHERLANDS 5-0 Estonia – Wijnaldum (3), Ake, Boadu
POLAND 3-2 Slovenia – Szymanski, Lewandowski, Goralski
Head-to-head: Poland 1-2 Netherlands, Netherlands 3-1 Poland, Poland 1-3 Netherlands, Netherlands 2-2 Poland
