Netherlands v Ireland Euro Qualifier Betting Tips 18/11/2023
The Netherlands and Ireland face off in Group B this Saturday with opposing tasks, so time for our Netherlands v Ireland Euro Qualifier Betting Tips. Oranje are still locked in a two-way race for the second Euros qualification spot with Greece. Both sides are separated by goal difference, but the Netherlands have a game in hand. In contrast, Ireland’s hopes of reaching the Euro 2024 finals were dashed following a poor campaign and the Boys in Green are playing for pride. This match kicks off at 7:45 p.m. on Saturday. It will be shown live on Viaplay.
Form and Team News
The Netherlands’ Euros qualification campaign has been a mixed bag. Four wins from six has been enough to keep Oranje in qualification contention, but a pair of losses (4-0 and 2-1) to France have given them work to do. However, the Netherlands are in decent form, with four wins from their last five matches. Ireland have struggled to compete in Group B and only have their double over Gibraltar (3-0 and 4-0) to show for an under-par qualification campaign. Stephen Kenny’s side lost 1-0 in Greece before a 4-0 win in Gibraltar during this last international break.
Looking at the team news, the Netherlands have lost several players due to injury. Nick Olij, Nathan Aké, Micky van de Ven, Ian Maatsen, Matthijs de Ligt, Brian Brobbey and Steven Bergwijn are all out. For Ireland, Max O’Leary, Sammie Szmodics and Aaron Connolly have all withdrawn from the squad.
Match Winner Betting
The Netherlands vs Ireland has some decent picks across the board, including in the matchwinner market. First, due to Ireland’s difficulties during qualifying, an away win appears unlikely from this fixture. Kenny’s side have also struggled on the road recently, winning just two of their last seven. Due to their current form, Ireland are big outsiders for this clash. William Hill has an away win as long as 18/1 currently. In addition, neither side often draws and Bet365 is offering 6/1 odds for a stalemate. The Netherlands have not drawn in their last five, while Ireland have had no stalemates in their last 12. Therefore, a draw also seems a fairly long shot in this fixture. Our pick for this match is a Netherlands home win. As Oranje need a victory to remain in qualification contention, the stakes will be high. However, three wins from their last four shows that Ronald Koeman’s side can notch a vital win and qualify. At 1/5, 10Bet has the best potential returns for a home win.
Over 2.5 Goals Betting Tip
Goals have been frequent for the Netherlands and Ireland recently, and we are backing another high-scorer on Saturday. First, the Netherlands have seen over 2.5 goals in five of their last six Euro qualifiers. Ireland have also seen regular high-scoring results, with over 2.5 goals in four of their last six. We are tipping another over 2.5 goals result in Amsterdam and bet365 have the best odds currently at 7/10.
Anytime Goal Scorer Bets
As the goals could flow again for the Netherlands and Ireland, we are tipping the following players to strike. First, Ireland’s Ewan Ferguson has been a bright spark recently. The Brighton forward has scored two in his last three internationals. Also, Ferguson has been in strong Premier League form this season, with five league goals for Brighton. At 6/1 odds, betfair has decent returns for a possible Ferguson strike. However, our anytime goalscorer pick this weekend is Cody Gakpo. The Liverpool striker was in top form during his last international break, with two goals from two matches. As a result, we are tipping more Gakpo goals against Ireland and BetUK has the best odds at 33/20.
