Netherlands vs Northern Ireland Betting Tips, Free Bets & Betting sites

Netherlands are tipped to be too strong for Northern Ireland in their Euro 2020 qualifier at the Stadion Feijenoord. The Dutch have been in superb form, particularly at home and are backed in the handicap market.

Netherlands Form & Team News

Netherlands are coming off a 4-0 victory at Estonia in their previous Group C fixture. Ryan Babel netted a brace while further goals from Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum sealed an emphatic win.

The Dutch are just three points behind group leaders Germany having won their last two matches. A win on Wednesday is priced at 1.14 but with eight goals in their last two matches, a -2 handicap is worth a punt at 2.30.

Memphis Depay has impressed for Ronald Koeman’s team with six goals in his last 10 international matches. He should start in attack alongside Ryan Babel while Georginio Wijnaldum is set to feature in midfield having also been among the goals lately.

Northern Ireland Form & Team News

Northern Ireland were beaten 2-0 by Germany last time out in the qualifiers. Despite playing at home, the Irish were second best throughout the contest and could only muster two attempts on target.

The result means the Irish have dropped to second on the table. They often struggle on the road with just two wins in their last nine matches placing them at odds of 17.00 for an unlikely triumph in Rotterdam while a draw is set at odds 7.50.

Conor Washington has been left out of the squad by manager Michael O’Neill with the striker out for three months with a hamstring injury. Kyle Lafferty is likely to start in place of the Hearts striker having sat out the defeat against Germany last time out.

Netherlands vs Northern Ireland Head to Head

Netherlands have a 2-1 edge with two draws from five previous matches against Northern Ireland. The Dutch have won the last two meetings and claimed a 6-0 victory over their rivals in a friendly back in 2012.

Netherlands vs Northern Ireland Betting Odds

Netherlands are short priced for the win at 1.14 while Northern Ireland are backed at 17.00 with a draw set at 7.50. A -2 handicap bet is valued at 2.30 while bet365 is offering 1.61 for a home win to nil.

Netherlands are prominent in the goalscorers market with Memphis Depay valued at 4.00 to score the first goal while the likes of Luuk de Jong (4.50), Ryan Babel (5.00) and Georginio Wijnaldum (6.50 should also be considered.

Netherlands vs Northern Ireland Match Up

Memphis Depay’s run of six goals in his last 10 international appearances makes him the one to watch for Netherlands. The hosts still have other goal threats with Georginio Wijnaldum and Ryan Babel also impressing lately.

Northern Ireland are likely to miss Conor Washington with Kyle Lafferty not at his best. The striker has not scored for the national team since 2016 and should struggle against Netherlands.
