Belarus vs Netherlands Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Belarus welcome Netherlands in the penultimate match of World Cup qualification. The hosts are glued to the bottom while Oranje are still hoping to reach FIFA World Cup through playoffs. Their chances are very slim, but they will aim for three points at Borisov Arena.
Belarus are dead last after the first 8 matches – even Luxembourg’s national squad accumulated the same points as them (5). They started off very good on the home turf with three-game unbeaten run. They stunningly obtained a point in the stalemate with France, but they only drew Luxembourg 1-1. Then they bested Bulgaria but ultimately lost to Sweden in the most recent home game with 0-4. Belarus have high ambitions in future and they will be aiming to get the best from the forthcoming match with Netherlands.
Netherlands are enduring another disappointing qualification stage following UEFA Euro 2016 catastrophe. Currently, they are three points behind Sweden with 13 points earned and they are well aware that their chances are very low and highly dependent on Sweden’s performance. Oranje’s last away game in this qualification was the 4-0 defeat they suffered in France. They were entirely outclassed by the home side and it remains to be seen whether they are able to pick themselves up and focus on the upcoming game with Belarus.
In the first match between the two sides back in the 2016, Oranje outplayed Belarus with 4-1. Promes was the double-scorer in the first half, while Klaassen and Janssen netted one apiece. Rios was the sole goal scorer for the visitors.
Belarus do not have lots of missing players for this home game. Egor Filipenko and Mikhail Sivakov are players who will not play against Netherlands. All other players are ready for the match and they will play aggressive from the first minute.
On the other side Netherlands have several missing players for the match against Belarus. Stefan de Vrij, Bruno Martins Indi and Winger Quincy Promes are injured and they will not play. All other players are available to play and they are eager to win all three points here.
