Correct Score Predictions: 1-1 Draw at 11/1 with bet365

Netherlands must be one of the most frustrating national teams in the world to support. The former superpowers of international football have shown incredible inconsistency over the last few years.

They made it to the World Cup semi finals in Rio back in 2014, but they then picked up a measly 13 points from their ten Euro 2016 qualifying games to finish 4th in the group, outqualified by Czech Republic, Iceland, and Turkey after a dismal two years of results.

This was followed by a string of impressive friendly performances as they beat England, Poland, and Austria all away from home, only to then lose 2-1 at home to Greece. This was followed by a 1-1 draw in Sweden in their opening World Cup qualifier, and it’s just impossible to know how this qualifying campaign will end. They have a very tough test ahead if they are to outperform France though.

Belarus actually managed to hold France to a goalless draw in their opener last month, and that result made it four wins, four draws, and just one defeat in their last nine outings.

They couldn’t produce this sort of form when it mattered though and ended up finishing 4th in their Euro 2016 qualifying group behind Spain, Slovakia, and Ukraine. They did manage 11 points in that journey though, and considering their defensive stability against France they can feel happy with the direction they are heading in.

Belarus aren’t too bad away from home either. They have won three, drawn two, and lost just one of their last six trips away, including victories against Slovakia, Republic of Ireland, and Norway. Netherlands, on the other hand, have lost five on the bounce at home and won just two of their last nine games there.

It’s hard to tell which Netherlands side will show up, but their current form certainly doesn’t justify their ridiculously short price in this game. I think Belarus have a real chance, especially considering they have won two of their six meetings with Netherlands. Odds of 10/3 for them to get something out of this game are absurdly good value considering Netherlands have lost against Iceland and Greece at home recently. I’m backing that alongside a 1-1 correct score prediction at 11/1.

Head To Head
Netherlands have won four and lost two of their last six meetings with Belarus, with the last one being a 2-1 win for Netherlands in 2007.

Stats
Netherlands have won just 22% of their last nine home games and have lost 100% of their last five. Belarus have only lost 17% of their last six away days as well.

Team News
Wesley Sneidjer remains the most experienced player in the Netherlands squad, with his 30 goals also making him the top scorer. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has not made the squad, with his attacking replacements being Memphis Depay, Luciano Narsingh, Quincy Promes, Bas Dost, and Vincent Janssen. Georginio Wijnaldum and Kevin Strootman, along with Sneijder, make for a formidable midfield.

35 year old Alexander Hleb and Timofel Kalachev make up an experienced midfield duo, with the two having nearly 150 caps between them. Striker Sergei Kornilenko has 74 as well, with his 17 goals making him Belarus’ top scorer. At the other end of the spectrum defender Yevgeniy Klopotskiy is hoping to win his first cap.
