Gibraltar vs Netherlands: Predictions
The Netherlands were able to get their World Cup Qualifiers back on track over the weekend after suffering a 4-2 defeat in their opening game to Turkey. After their disappointing result in Istanbul, Frank de Boer’s side ran out as 2-0 victors on Saturday against Latvia as they climbed up to third in Group G.
The same cannot be said for their hosts as Gibraltar sit at rock bottom of the qualification group. In their opening two games, Gibraltar have only managed to find the back of the net once which came in their 4-1 defeat on the weekend to Montenegro. They did not fare much better in their opening game against Norway with the Scandenavions running out comfortable 3-0 victors.
Steven Burghius and Luuk de Jong provided the goals on Saturday to provide the Dutch with three vital points in their hopes to qualify for their first World Cup in what will be eight years come to the 2022 Qatar tournament. Although it was far from the ideal start for the Dutch, they have the perfect opportunity to get back among the fight at the top as they face a Gibraltar side ranked 195th in the world.
Gibraltar vs Netherlands: Match Stats
Luuk de Jong has netted two goals in the Netherlands’ opening two games of their World Cup Qualifiers. The Sevilla man has scored just four times in 25 La Liga appearances for the Spanish side this season, however, the 30-year-old has put his club form to one side over the last week whilst on international duty and will view Tuesday’s game as a great opportunity to add another to his tally.
The Dutch have only won three of their last nine games across all competitions but Tuesday’s game presents them the perfect opportunity to secure three comfortable points against the 15th-worst international side in the world according to the FIFA rankings.
