That was a bad time for Germany to lose the 2018 World Cup – they got the last place on the group and prematurely left the tournament.
Germany already made to meetings since the Mundial. That when the team of Joachim L öw overscored Peru 2-1. Another clash was with France during the Nations League which ended in peace 0-0. The performance was quite substantive, and they had all chances to succeed but they didn’t manage to realize the opportunities.
Germany appear to be the favorite in the upcoming meeting but would they retain the status?
Unlike the opponent, Netherlands didn’t even got to the World Cup finals:
They ended up on the third place in the group, which kept them even from duels. That was obviously followed by staff change: Ronald Koeman was assigned as the head coach.
They’ve already performed a couple of games under his guidance but only the duel with Portugal 3-0 can be listed as successful. All other confrontations displayed their weak performance both in attack and defence. However, Netherlands really have attitude for victory this time.
Netherlands: Cillessen, Janmaat, Matthijs de Ligt, Virgil van Dijk, Blind, Frenkie de Jong, Pröpper, Wijnaldum, Babel, Luuk de Jong, Depay.
Germany: Neuer, Rüdiger, Boateng, Hummels, Kimmich, Ginter, Kroos, Reus, Müller, Goretzka, Werner.
Our prediction for Netherlands vs Germany is for zero handicap due to the following factors:
- Netherlands national team is still going through crisis – they can not find their game tactics
- Joachim Löw clearly draw some conclusions after the Mundial and now his squad looks much better
- The last win of Netherlands over Germany dates back to 2002
Most likely the game would be on equals, and only the slightest advantage would have team hosts. This advantage would probably get them win.
