Germany are already consigned to an embarrassing Nations League relegation but can still salvage some pride by denying arch-rivals Holland a place in the Finals.
Die Mannschaft have the added incentive of gaining revenge for last month’s 3-0 loss to the Netherlands in this competition.
We expect the hosts to be fired up in Gelsenkirchen and are snapping up 83/100 for a home win as our first Germany vs Netherlands prediction.
A Look At Germany’s Betting Odds
Germany have only picked up one point from three matches in Group A1, but they have played much better than the bare results suggest in our book.
Only an inspired performance from Alphonse Areola prevented Die Mannschaft from beating France at home first up.
Joachim Low’s side spurned several good chances against the Dutch in Amsterdam before a couple of late counter-attacks flattered Holland.
Germany should also have been more than 1-0 ahead at half-time when visiting France and were made to pay by an Antoine Griezmann double.
Thursday’s 3-0 friendly win over Russia will have helped to boost morale, though, and there is still plenty of talent in this team.
Low needs a significant success following the World Cup debacle and more disappointment in this event, so 21/10 for the hosts to oblige by more than one goal appeals from the Germany vs Netherlands odds.
A Look At Netherlands’ Betting Odds
Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman deserves plenty of credit for getting the Oranje back on track and Friday’s 2-0 triumph over France was another feather in his cap.
Georginio Wijnaldum’s strike in the 44th minute and an injury-time penalty from Memphis Depay helped hand the World Cup winners a first defeat in 16 matches.
“I did not expect this group to be able to read the game so well and play mature,” Koeman told De Telegraaf. “We played well from the beginning to the end.
“France did not come here to make it a fun match. It is difficult to stay patient and wait for your moment. That’s why everyone in the group deserves a big compliment.”
Having failed to qualify for the last two major tournaments, the Dutch now only need a draw to progress in this competition.
However, we fear there are still some fragile areas in this developing outfit that are more likely to be exposed on the road, as when losing 2-1 in France in September.
Let’s add 25/2 for a 3-1 home win here to our Germany vs Netherlands betting tips.
GERMANY 3-0 Russia – Sane, Sule, Gnabry
NETHERLANDS 2-0 France – Wijnaldum, Depay (pen)
Head-to-head: Netherlands 3-0 Germany, Netherlands 0-0 Germany, Netherlands 1-2 Germany, Germany 3-0 Netherlands, Netherlands 2-2 Germany
