Germany v Netherlands Tips – Hosts will dominate tonight
The Dutch will be taught another footballing lesson tonight
November 17th, 2015
In light of recent events in Paris, the outcome of tonight’s clash between world champions Germany and the Netherlands may not be too important, however that isn’t to say that we’re not expecting a thoroughly entertaining clash between the World Cup winners and a Dutch side who failed to impress in their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.
Can the Dutch bounce back from their recent Euro disappointments? Indeed they can and they fought hard on Friday to overcome a tough Welsh side 3-2 in their most recent friendly. Germany will be a different proposition entirely however and any bouncing back will have top be put on hold for now.
Nevertheles, the pressure will be on Dutch coach Danny Blind to come up with some convincing victories and a failure to clinch some wins ahead of the World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign may yet cost him his job, something which won’t have escaped his attention. The Netherlands are priced at 10/3 with Bet365 to defeat Germany this evening.
Germany stumbled to a 2-0 defeat in Paris on Friday evening, although the outcome of that match was of no relevance whatsoever in light of the events around the French capital and tonight’s clash is going ahead out of defiance for the atrocities of Friday evening, just as France are still heading to Wembley for their friendly tonight.
Indeed, both the Netherlands and Germany will be looking to do this match a fair amount of justice given those dreadful events and we should at least expect a thoroughly entertaining encounter. The Dutch will be desperate to build on their recent win against Wales while the hosts will be looking to prove that their World Cup success can continue into the Euro 2016 tournament next year.
This will be a tough clash for both sides, however Germany will head into this match full of confidence and should prove far too strong for a Netherlands side who will still be smarting from the disappointment of failing to qualify for next year’s European Championships. We’ll be backing the Germans to beat the Netherlands at odds of 5/6 with Paddy Power.
