On Thursday, starting at 19:45 pm, the match will be played Holland – Northern Ireland, in the 7th round of the EURO 2020 preliminaries, Group C. The two selected have not met since 2012, when they played a friendly match won by “batavi” with 6-0 at home. In the EURO 2020 preliminaries, Northern Ireland has 12 points, as does the leader of the group Germany, and the Netherlands comes close with 9 points.
The Netherlands won 3 matches in Group C, 4-0 with Belarus, 4-0 with Estonia and 4-2 in Germany, losing the other match against the Germans, 2-3 in Amsterdam. Very offensive formation, “resurrected” by Ronald Koeman, “Mechanical Orange” may have a test of patience with Northern Ireland.
The British form a very compact defensive bloc, but capable of producing positive results. Northern Ireland defeated Belarus and Estonia twice, giving up only one match, 0-2 with Germany, in the previous round. The Netherlands will most likely win, but the Northern Irish are capable of defending efficiently, limiting the proportions of the score, as they did against the Germans.
PREDICTION: Over 2,5 goals @ 1,56
