An always entertaining fixture, Netherlands and Belgium come together on Sunday, with the hosts looking to book their passage into the final stages of the UEFA Nations League.

Boasting a 3-point advantage having claimed a big 4:1 win in Belgium earlier this year, the Dutch know only a heavy defeat will cost them their place in next summer´s semi-final stages.

Netherlands vs Belgium Betting Tips: BTTS

Belgium arrives in Amsterdam having picked up a nervy 2:1 win against Wales on Thursday, and while they have now taken 10 points from their 4 previous UNL matches, that big loss at home to the Netherlands in June seems likely to cost Roberto Martinez's side a place in the final stages.

Need to win by 3 goals or more while scoring at least 4 goals, Belgium will need to match the stunning result of their neighbours earlier this summer, and while that seems unlikely, an entertaining contest should be expected with both nations showing some pretty good form in recent months.

Knowing only a big win will do, Belgium will surely adopt an offensive approach if they are to have any chance of overturning the three-goal deficit against a Dutch side that picked up a comfortable 2:0 win in Poland on Thursday.

Indeed, goals have to be expected here, with both nations seeing big numbers in recent outings. For the Dutch, 6 of their last 7 matches have seen BTTS, while 7 of their last 10 also saw over 2.5 goals scored. Belgium have also seen BTTS in 10 of their last 11 internationals, including their midweek win against Wales, and a similar outcome is expected in Amsterdam.

History also lends weight to the selection, with only 1 of the last 8 meetings between these sides not seeing BTTS. 

Given the attacking quality on display in both teams, we are confident both teams will score in this fixture and given the Belgians' need for a victory, we expect the over 2.5 goals selection to also prove profitable with an entertaining night's football expected in Amsterdam.
