Expert analysis Netherlands

The Netherlands completed the Group A in the first place with seven points. Here, Louis van Gaal’s team left behind Senegal, who entered the round of 16 as the second with six points, Ecuador, and Qatar. Their only loss of points, a 1-1 against the South Americans on the second matchday, came between 2-0 against the African champions and on Tuesday against the hosts.

This marked the fourth time in five encounters that Holland managed a clean sheet. The encounter against Qatar, who scored one goal in three games, doesn’t represent a yardstick. However, the Netherlands achieved the same in Poland (2-0) and against Belgium (1-0) at the end of September, too.  

Expert analysis USA

With five points, the USA finished the Group B in the second place. Here, Gregg Berhalter’s side took two points less than England. Behind them, Iran and Wales ranked third and fourth respectively.

In four of the Yanks’ last five matches, not both teams scored goals. A 1-1 against the Welsh national team on the second matchday constituted the exception. Previously, the USA suffered a 0-2 defeat to 24th-ranked Japan and a 0-0 against 51st-ranked Saudi Arabia. Then, they managed a goalless draw against the Three Lions.

Afterwards, a 1-0 against the world’s 20th-ranked Iran on Tuesday lifted the Yanks into the last 16. However, the match had a bitter aftertaste for the scorer, Christian Pulisic. Because: He needed a substitution and had to be treated in hospital. But Pulisic stated that he should be back for the round of 16 match Netherlands vs. USA.

Head-to-head comparison Netherlands – USA

So far, the Netherlands and USA played against each other exclusively in five friendly matches. The last of these took place on 5 June 2015 at Amsterdam’s Johan Cruijff Arena. On that day, Holland lost against the USA with 3-4.

Our betting prediction and the best odds

The home side in the World Cup fixture Netherlands vs. USA didn’t concede a goal in four of their last five matches. The exception came on 25 November with a 1-1 against Ecuador. That snapped a streak of Holland with 2-0 victories in Poland as well as against Senegal and a 1-0 win over Belgium.

Another 2-0 against Qatar followed on Tuesday. On the same day, the USA beat Iran 1-0 and scored their second goal since the end of September. The first one arrived in a 1-1 against Wales, which the Yanks recorded after a 0-2 against Japan and a 0-0 against Saudi Arabia. Then, they achieved a further goalless draw against England.

By Alice Kopp

Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football. Since she has loved writing since childhood, Alice began to study journalism while still at school. It was very convenient for her that her class took part in a project of a German daily newspaper. She was also allowed to write for the children's pages of an Austrian daily newspaper and to get a taste of the sports department of the same medium. This is how she received her first press accreditations, which was of course anything but a matter of course for the then 18-year-old. Although she was partly advised against it, Alice decided to study journalism and communication sciences. After a few years, she decided to use the exams she had taken as an elective. Nevertheless, she applies the knowledge she has acquired in her further professional life. The same applies to her language skills. In addition to her mother tongues German and Italian, Alice is also proficient in English and Spanish. She also understands French and can use this language in research. During her studies, Alice was involved in an Austrian football club. At the same time, she wrote for a total of three Austrian portals and worked as an Austria correspondent for an Italian-language online medium. This collaboration started during Giovanni Trapattoni's era at Red Bull Salzburg and continued during EURO 2008. This gave her the opportunity to interact with Trapattoni as well as with Italian journalists. From the following year, Alice initially worked with a Swiss portal before discovering sports betting content for herself. On the one hand, this kept her in sports journalism, and on the other, it broadened her horizons. And that both in the context of the sports betting industry and with other sports as well as countries. In the field of sports journalism, she focused in particular on football from around the world, volleyball and beach volleyball. In addition, she naturally wrote several guides, bookmaker profiles, bonus articles and other content for betting enthusiasts. She did this for the same company for about ten years, writing articles in German and Italian. She also built the Italian-language website together with the managing director. Meanwhile, Alice started working with another Austrian football club. Furthermore, she joined the Association Internationale de la Presse Sportive (AIPS) in 2016. This gives her the opportunity to watch teams and athletes on the ground relatively often. Not only sports betting, but also radio In January 2019, the next step in her professional development followed. For: she started creating premium content on the topic of sports betting. In the process, she finally put out feelers to almost all countries and all continents. And this was not least due to the fact that both German and English-speaking users subscribed to her content. Nevertheless, Alice continued to use her knowledge of Italian, among other things. On the one hand, because she regularly exchanges ideas with Italian colleagues, and on the other, because she works with a web radio station. The Corona crisis had a strong impact on the sports world and on interest in sports betting, primarily in the early days. Therefore, a fresh start was necessary and, on balance, Alice found the fields of activity that suited her best. She also writes articles for an agency on almost all disciplines as well as on eSports and content for a German online medium. Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football.
