Betting tips Belgium vs Netherlands

An entertaining and evenly balanced contest can usually be expected when these nations come together with 6 of the last 7 meetings between these nations since 1999 seeing BTTS and 6 of the last 8 finishing as draws.

However, this is the first competitive fixture between these rivals since a 0:0 draw at the World Cup in 1998 and we should expect another fierce battle between a Belgium side currently ranked as the world´s second-best side and a Dutch squad now risining to10th in the FIFA rankings.

Indeed, Holland have certainly improved over the past year under the guidance of the wily Louis Van Gaal and the Oranje this fixture having lost just 1 of their last 17 matches while they have won 6 and drawn 3 of their 9 most recent outings. Belgium, for their part, have dipped in form, winning just 2 of their last 6 including UEFA Nations League defeats against France and Italy last October.

Ultimately, we expect a really competitive and entertaining contest with no love lost between these two nations and considering recent form, we expect BTTS with Belgium seeing that outcome in 3 of their last 5 matches. Holland have also seen BTTS in 5 of their last 8 away games and considering their history, that outcome is our preferred betting approach.

Given current form, with Belgium not at their best over the past year, we fancy this one could finish all square following an entertaining back and forth contest.
