Netherlands vs England – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This match marks the debut of Ronald Koeman as the Netherlands’ national team manager, having the task of strengthening this team heading into the 2020 Euros.
The Netherlands, as we know, is traditionally a team that favours offensive football, leaving many times their defensive organization to second place, something that they also do on the younger national teams as well.
It isn’t weird to see that their matches usually have some goals, with 26 of their last 28 matches having at least 2 goals.
England has recorded two 0-0’s on their last 2 matches, especially because they’ve adopted a cautious approach, considering they have faced Brazil and Germany,
but I believe they will adopt a more proactive style this Friday in Amsterdam.
