Netherlands – Northern Ireland : Preview & Prediction
Netherlands are aiming for victory over Northern Ireland to take second place in the qualifying group for the next European Nations Championship. At 3 points from their opponent and one match less, the Dutch selection has the opportunity to achieve an excellent operation. Especially since the partners of De Ligt are on a series of 2 wins in a row in Germany (4-2) and Estonia (4-0). With 4 wins in their last 5 receptions in official competitions, the Netherlands show their solidity at the Johan Cruijff Arena. Northern Ireland will try to preserve its 2nd place but will have trouble facing one of the best European nations.

This is the only defeat of the Northern Irish in these Eliminations, they who have 4 successes in Estonia (2-0 and 2-1) and Belarus (2-1 and 1-0). But against players in the class of De Ligt (Juventus), Van Dijk (Liverpool), De Jong (Barcelona), Depay (Lyon), Northern Ireland should logically be powerless.
