We have compiled a prediction for you for the Netherlands – Argentina match in the 1/4 finals of the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. In the Round of 16, the Netherlands defeated the USA (3:1) and Argentina won Australia (2:1).
Netherlands national team – Cody Gakpo is doing amazing this tournament
The Netherlands is ranked 8th in the FIFA rankings and 6th in the UEFA rankings. The Netherlands took first place in Group A, where they defeated Senegal (2:0) and Qatar (2:0), drawing only with Senegal (1:1). In the playoffs, we managed to deal with the USA (3:1).
According to statistics, the Netherlands score an average of 2.2 goals per match. During this tournament they scored 8 goals and conceded only 2 goals. Quite a stable team, which is able to overcome Argentina.
In the match between the Netherlands and the USA, I didn’t really believe in the Dutch, but they defeated them. Although the game was even, the implementation of the players from the Netherlands did not disappoint.
Netherlands top scorer: Cody Gakpo (3 goals), Davy Klassen, Memphis Depay, Frankie de Jong, Denzel Dumfries and Daily Blind (1 each). Of the assistants, I would mention Dumfries and Davy Klassen (2 passes each), followed by Frankie de Jong and Daily Blind.
Argentina national team – Messi continues to drag his team to the championship
Argentina ranks third in the FIFA rankings. The Argentines finished Group C in first place despite an unexpected and sensational defeat to Saudi Arabia in the opening match. Then they won Mexico (2:0) and Poland (2:0). In the 1/8 stage of the playoffs, they got the Australians, whom they should have easily passed, but there were problems.
According to statistics, Argentina scores an average of 2.7 goals per match. During this tournament they scored 7 goals and conceded 3 goals.
I expected from Argentina a more confident victory over Australia, but the result on the scoreboard is such that the Argentines are in 1/4.
Argentina’s top scorer is Lionel Messi (3 goals), followed by Julian Alvarez (2 goals), Alexis McAllister and Enzo Fernandez (1 each). Of the assistants, I would mention Messi, Enzo Fernandez, Di Maria, Otamendi and Nahuel Molina.
Netherlands – Argentina: World Cup 2022 bet in Qatar (stage 1/4):
Both teams are scoring, we should see a lot of goals in this confrontation. In terms of names, the Netherlands is in no way inferior to Argentina and they are able to win.
In the new era of the 2000s, the teams met three times, two 0-0 draws and the Netherlands won once (1-0) in 2003.
So the Netherlands did not win especially strong teams, except for the USA, and Argentina did not win powerful ones. I think that Van Dijk’s team will win because there will be less pressure on them and they are in no way inferior to the Argentines.
Of the interesting markets for the match Netherlands – Argentina, I would note the following outcomes:
- Passage of the Netherlands in 2.44
- The Netherlands won’t lose to Argentina in regular time at 1.74
- Netherlands win in regular time in 3.8
Prediction: Netherlands not to lose Argentina in regular time
