Netherlands vs Turkey: Dutch to avenge Istanbul defeat

Kick-off: 1945, 07/09/2021

Stadium: Johan Cruyff Arena

TV: Sky Sports

Netherlands will be seeking to avenge a 4-2 loss in Turkey at the start of their World Cup qualifying campaign and have fared much better since then.

Louis van Gaal should be a steadying influence on this talented Dutch team, plus Virgil van Dijk’s return from injury is a major boost.

Let’s go with 17/20 for the hosts to be leading at half-time and full-time for our first Netherlands vs Turkey prediction.

A Look At Netherlands’ Betting Odds

Netherlands bounced back from that Istanbul reversal by beating Latvia and Gibraltar in Group G.

Holland then impressed at Euro 2020 with three pool-stage wins before being upset by Czech Republic in Budapest.

Van Gaal returned to the Dutch dugout with a solid 1-1 draw in Norway, where Davy Klaassen cancelled out Erling Haaland’s opener.

Saturday’s 4-0 triumph over Montenegro took them to 10 points from four qualifiers, with Memphis Depay bagging a brace before Georginio Wijnaldum and Cody Gakpo netted.

Depay was outstanding during that totally dominant display, while Klaassen hit the woodwork and the Montenegro keeper had to make several saves to keep the score down.

Looking at the 4/5 for the Dutch to win by more than one clear goal again here.

A Look At Turkey’s Betting Odds

Burak Yilmaz hit a hat-trick when Turkey got off to a flying start by beating Holland 4-2 on home turf back in March.

The Crescent Stars then impressed in a 3-0 romp away to Norway but blotted their copybook with a 3-3 draw versus Latvia at Ataturk Stadium.

Euro 2020 was a huge disappointment, with Senol Gunes seeing his side beaten by Italy, Wales and Switzerland.

Back in World Cup action, they let a 2-0 lead slip when drawing at home to Montenegro but at least enjoyed a morale-boosting 3-0 victory in Gibraltar.

That result kept them a point clear of Holland and Norway at the top of the table.

Turkey do possess the attacking ability to cause any team problems, with Lille striker Yilmaz, Marseille forward Cengiz Under and Inter Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu all class acts.

They do seem one-paced at the back, though, so 10/1 for a 3-1 home win completes our Netherlands vs Turkey betting tips.
