Belarus Prediction – Can Belarus spring a surprise?

Recent back-to-back matches against bottom nation, Estonia, in home and away fixtures have seen Belarus collect their first points of this Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, thanks to a 2-1 win away from home and a 0-0 draw in the corresponding fixture at home.

However, that could be the end of Belarus’s recent points-scoring spree as they play host to Group C leaders, Netherlands, on Sunday evening, and the visitors look to be closing in on automatic qualification for next year’s European Championship.

Belarus started their campaign in disastrous fashion as they lost all of their opening 4 group matches having suffered defeats to Netherlands 4-0 away, 2-1 away at Northern Ireland along with 2-0 and 1-0 defeats at home to Germany and Northern Ireland respectively.

Overall results at home in European qualifiers haven’t seen Belarus cover themselves in glory either as the hosts have registered just 1 win out of their last 9 matches on home soil, which was a 2-0 victory over minnows, Luxembourg, back in September 2015.

Netherlands Prediction – Can Netherlands hold onto top spot?

Leaders of group C, Netherlands, know they cannot afford to slip up when they make their way over to Belarus for Sunday’s clash against their 4th placed opponents, and they also know that they’ll probably need a few goals under their belts in this one too.

Netherlands sit top of Group C only by virtue of a better goal difference ahead of their rivals Germany and Northern Ireland, with all three teams sitting on 12 points apiece as we head into the final stages of these group matches.

With automatic qualification to next year’s European Championship looking like it may come don to superior goal difference, the Dutch will be keen to grab all three points in addition to a few goals to further boost their existing goal difference of +11.

The visitors have won 4 of their 5 group matches to date with their only loss being a 3-2 defeat at home to Germany, but wins over Belarus (4-0), Germany (4-2), Estonia (4-0) and Northern Ireland (3-1) have also seen them involved in over 2.5 goals in each of these 5 matches too.


Key-Facts – Belarus v Netherlands

  • Belarus have registered just 1 win out of their last 9 matches on home soil in EQ
  • Netherlands have won 4 of their 5 matches to date in Group C
  • All 5 of Netherlands’ group matches have all resulted over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Belarus have been poor in this campaign and are lucky that Estonia are also in this group to save them from being bottom, while Netherlands have been scoring goals for fun.
