Northern Ireland vs Netherlands Betting Tips – UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifier, 16th November 19.45pm

Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland and Ronald Koeman’s Netherlands square off in a vital UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier at Windsor Park on Saturday night. The Dutch, who are already assured of a play-off place, lead the way at the top of Group C on 15 points, ahead of Germany on the head-to-head record. Meanwhile, Norn Iron are currently three points behind the pair. Will Holland be too strong for the Irish in Belfast?

Northern Ireland News and Form – Can the Green and White Army keep their automatic hopes alive?

Northern Ireland have had an exceptional qualifying campaign but finishing above the likes of Netherlands and Germany was always going to be a tough task. Norn Iron have lost to both nations, but they have won their other four.

Michael O’Neill’s men started with successive home and away wins over Estonia and Belarus to take control of the group. Unfortunately for the Green and White Army, despite a 75th-minute Josh Magennis goal giving them a lead in Rotterdam, Holland went on to claim a 3-1 victory at De Kuip last month. Prior to that, Germany beat the Irish 2-0 at Windsor Park.

Victory for Northern Ireland on Saturday will take it to the final day. However, O’Neill’s troops end their campaign with a trip to Frankfurt to play Joachim Low’s Germany, while the Dutch entertain Estonia at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.

Netherlands News and Form – Dutch to book their place in the finals with a win in Belfast?

Holland have certainly made a huge improvement since failing to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia last summer. The Dutch are in control of Group C with two matches left, as they have taken 15 points from a possible 18.

Having lost 3-2 to the Germans in a thriller in Amsterdam back in March, Ronald Koeman’s boys returned the favour with an impressive win at Volksparkstadion in September. Clockwork Orange put on an attacking masterclass in Hamburg, with an own goal and strikes from Frenkie de Jong, Donyell Malen and Georginio Wijnaldum giving them a famous 4-2 victory on German soil.

A point will be enough to take Koeman’s Holland through to next summer’s Euro 2020 tournament, but the away side will be gunning for all three points in the Northern Irish capital at the weekend.

Northern Ireland vs Netherlands Predictions

Netherlands win: Holland are a team in fine fettle at the minute. The Dutch head to Belfast as the odds-on favourites to get the win, even though a draw will be enough for them to book their spot at the Euro 2020 finals.

Northern Ireland have been a credit to themselves in Group C up until now but qualifying for the European Championship via the direct route has always looked a step too far for O’Neill’s men. Nevertheless, they will not give up until it’s mathematically impossible.

Unfortunately for the hosts, I can see Holland being too strong for them on Saturday. Check out the tempting odds of 11/10 for Netherlands to be winning at half time and full time. I also fancy the visitors to keep a clean sheet at Windsor Park, so put some money on the Dutch to win to nil at 6/5.
