Netherlands vs Ivory Coast: Preview & Prediction
Very interesting is the amicable Sunday dispute between the Netherlands and Ivory Coast. The Rotterdam match will start at 20.30 and I have prepared an equally interesting forecast. I do not agree with the odds on online bookmakers and I think we will witness a much more spectacular duel than it seems. See below and why do I believe that?
He disappointed in the last years and after losing the Euro 2016 he seems he can hardly catch the World Cup.
We started the preliminaries poorly and we find it in fourth place in group A.
He comes after two other favorites, one lost with Italy and another one with Morocco.
He’s been very poor lately on his own. He has only one victory in his previous nine home games.
He went down to 31st in the FIFA hierarchy.
After an unsuccessful lottery attempt, it seems that the Dutch will once again call Robben and Sneijder for the next matches.
The probable team: Zoet – Martins Indi, Blind, Hoedt, Ake, Strootman, Sneijder, Wijnaldum, Robben, Janssen, Depay.
He has not played too many games lately.
It comes after a disappointing African Cup at the beginning of the year, where from the big favorite position to the trophy it has not even passed the group.
He also played two friendly games in the meantime, a draw with Benin and a success with Russia.
Statistics show us that he lost one match in the last 17 games. It’s a band to take into account.
In the FIFA rankings we are in 47th place.
The only notable one in the bout is Jonathan Kodjia.
The probable team: Hotyalin Ble – Sherif, Goua, Outman, Comara, Ta Bi, Aka, Diabate, Poe, Eric, Ouattara.
