22/03: Daily Predictions: Netherlands vs Scotland

Betting Tips

Scotland and the Netherlands will play an exciting international friendly match at the Johan Cruijff Arena.  Steve Clarke’s team bounced back after missing out on a spot at the 2022 World Cup, securing their position in this year’s Euros with two games remaining. Regarding Ronald Koeman’s team, they secured their spot in Euro 2024 by placing second in Group B behind France.

Netherlands vs Scotland

The two coaches can assess their respective teams’ readiness for the tournament before this match, as both countries will be competing at Euro 2024 this summer.

The Netherlands only lost twice to group winners France, finishing second in their qualification group with 18 points from eight games.  The Netherlands had a difficult start to 2023 after losing to Italy and Croatia in the third-place play-off and the UEFA Nations League semifinal, respectively. The first loss came against France.

In what will be Ronald Koeman’s final opportunity to have a close look at his team, the Netherlands will play Euro 2024 hosts Germany in Frankfurt during this current international break.

At Euro 2024, the Netherlands will play Austria in addition to Poland, Estonia, Wales, or Finland. There will also be a reunion with France. Scotland, on the other hand, led for a spell and came in second in Group A. Ultimately, they defeated Spain, whom they had previously defeated in the qualifying round, five times, with two draws, and one loss.

Scotland had won all five of their opening five games in 2023, so it was a nice start. Steve Clarke’s team does, however, enter this match in somewhat low form. They ended their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with draws against Georgia and Norway after suffering three straight losses against England, Spain, and France.

Verdict

Even though Oranje lost 2-1 to France in Amsterdam last September, they have won nine of their last 11 international matches there, so anything other than Dutch victories are uncommon there. They can be relied upon to prevail against a Scotland team that has only triumphed in one of their previous 11 friendlies – against Luxembourg.

With nothing on the line and both coaches looking to test things out before the real stuff in the summer, the game may be rather open.  This could imply that there will be plenty of opportunities for both teams to score, and Scotland’s previous playing style indicates that both sides will score.

As they close out 2023 amid a true purple patch and finally cruise to the European Championships this summer, Holland’s only goal will be to maintain their current momentum. When last spotted, Koeman’s team was cruising to a comfortable 6-0 thumping away at Gibraltar. They also finished with 15 points from their final six EURO 24 qualification games. We are betting on a home win since Scotland will have a tough test when they travel to Amsterdam on Friday night
