The Netherlands can seal their qualification for the UEFA EURO 2024 when they host the Republic of Ireland on Saturday evening at Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam.
Last month, the Netherlands prevailed 1-0 in Greece making the most crucial step to secure their spot in the UEFA EURO 2024 final stage. This outcome put them 2nd in the group, level on points with Greece, however, their opponents have one game less left to play so a win here is enough for the hosts to qualify because of their superior head-to-head record with Greece.
The hosts miss some important players in their defensive line, Matthijs de Ligt, Jeremie Frimpong, Sven Botman, Micky van de Ven, Lutsharel Geertruida and Nathan Ake are all injured. In addition, they do not have available tonight Frenkie de Jong, Memphis Depay, Brian Brobbey, Steven Bergwijn and Noa Lang.
Republic of Ireland
The Republic of Ireland with only two wins in seven matches so far has no chance of finishing in the top two spots of this group, but they can still qualify for the UEFA EURO 2024 via the playoffs. They find themselves in a bizarre situation here, as they may boost their chances of qualifying by losing tonight, because with a win here they could help Greece finish second instead of Ronald Koeman’s side, limiting at the same time their own chances through the playoffs route.
Netherlands vs Republic of Ireland History & Statistics
The reverse fixture in Dublin finished 2-1 for the Netherlands, who came from behind to seal the victory.
The Netherlands has covered -1.5 Asian Handicap in 9 out of their 10 last home games for the UEFA EURO and FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The Republic of Ireland conceded two goals in 4 out of their 5 losses in this group. Their only clean sheets were against weak Gibraltar.
The Dutch side may have lost clearly twice to France, however, they showed undeniable superiority against every other team in this group. On the other hand, Ireland, experienced a number of poor outcomes being able only to tackle Gibraltar twice in this qualification group. We expect to see the Netherlands getting the job done and sealing qualification tonight despite their injury issues. A victory for the Netherlands and over 2.5 goals could be an interesting combo here, however, our last call here is the Netherlands to cover -1.5 Asian handicap.
