The Netherlands, who are in danger of finishing outside the top two in Group B of the Euro 2024 qualifying tournament, take against Greece on Monday night at the Agia Sophia Stadium in Athens. Oranje is already three points behind its hosts in the standings, but a victory at home by at least four goals might guarantee Gus Poyet’s team a spot in the top two. its guests are suffering from a lack of confidence.
Greece vs The Netherlands
With a 2-0 victory over Ireland on the road on Friday, the hosts made it two wins in as many games. With goals from Giorgos Masouras and Giorgos Giakoumakis in the first half, Greece advanced to second place in Group B. On Friday, the visitors hosted France for their qualification match.
After Kylian Mbappe scored twice to put his team ahead by two goals, Quilindschy Hartman, a defender, gave the Dutch back one goal in the 83rd minute. On Friday, Hartman made his Netherlands debut and scored a goal to make it unforgettable.
France has won all six of their matches in the qualifying campaign, guaranteeing them a spot in the main event. There is now only one direct qualifying spot available in Group B. The visitors, who are playing the game in hand, are behind the hosts by three points.
Like Greece, the Netherlands will also have their Nations League achievements to fall back on in case their hopes of finishing in the top two fade. They qualified for and hosted the finals of last year’s competition. Defensive failings forced Oranje to settle for fourth place.
But in the qualifying match last month, the Netherlands easily defeated Greece 3-0 thanks to three goals from Koeman. This was Oranje’s eighth victory in ten meetings against the Pirate Ship; the team’s only victory against the 2010 World Cup winners came in a friendly in 2016.
Greece failed to score in the rematch, losing 3-0, but they should be able to do so on Monday since Gus Poyet’s team has scored in eight of their previous nine competitive home games.
The Netherlands has been scoring goals lately; in four of their past five games, they have scored goals at both ends and in 13 of their last 14 away games, they have scored goals.
Thanks to their respective Nations League achievements, both teams have the safety net of a play-off position, which should give them a little more leeway to attack in this crucial match. Therefore, it seems wise to start by backing both teams to score.
Although it is unlikely to be as simple, the Netherlands should have enough quality to win away after dominating that first meeting. It appears that a 2-1 victory for the visitors is a plausible correct score prediction because Greece hasn’t lost at home by more than two goals in 19 games since June 2019.
