Northern Ireland News and Form

Northern Ireland’s qualification hopes are not all in their own hands. They are three points behind both the Netherlands and Germany in the race for qualification. So not only are they going to have to go out and beat the Netherlands in this one, but then Northern Ireland would have to beat Germany in their final qualifier. Head coach Michael O’Neill is leaving his job to take over at Stoke. But he stays on until the end of the qualifiers.

The Irish are W4 L2 in their six matches, beating Belarus and Estonia in both respective meetings before falling to back to back losses against the Dutch and the Germans. Northern Ireland looked on course to cause a huge upset in winning in the Netherlands last time out, then looked set for a point with 10 minutes to go as the Netherlands levelled it up.

But the Dutch would go on to score twice in stoppage time to sink the Irish challenge. The defeats against the Netherlands and Germany were both by a two-goal margin. Northern Ireland were undefeated seven European Championship home qualifiers before dropping their game against Germany at Windsor Park in September.

Northern Ireland vs Netherlands Head to Head

The Netherlands earned a 3-1 home win in the first group meeting
The Dutch have won the last three meetings
Northern Ireland have scored in just one of the last three meetings
The last meeting in Belfast was in 1977 which the Irish lost 1-0

Netherlands News and Form

The Netherlands need one more win to get them to Euro 2020. They collected a narrow away win in Belarus in their last qualifier, taking them out to a four-match winning streak in the group. That started with a 4-2 away success in Germany, having lost at home against Die Mannschaft earlier in the campaign. So the Dutch are sat level with Germany on fifteen points from this campaign.

The goals have been flying around from the Dutch who are averaging just over three goals per qualifier. They have scored a total of ten goals in their three away qualifiers in this group. The Netherlands were on a six-match winless streak of away form (competitive and friendly) before the start of this qualification campaign. They have, however, won five of their last six European Championship away qualifiers (L1) and are on a four-match winning streak in such fixtures.

Northern Ireland vs Netherlands Tips & Odds

The Netherlands to win to nil at 11/10
Over 2.5 goals at 9/10

Who will win – Northern Ireland vs Netherlands Predictions

This is such a tough situation for Northern Ireland. They have to go for broke but have two massive games to come. They can be buoyed by nearly getting themselves a draw in the Netherlands last time out. Can they stir themselves for a big night at Windsor Park? The attacking threat of the Dutch looks too good. Away win.
