Recommended Bets

The Danes lost their last away match; a 0-2 defeat in Scotland being the only blemish on an otherwise perfect World Cup Qualifying campaign. The Dutch are particularly strong at home and with so many key players missing for Denmark, should just edge this match.

Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Netherlands 2 – 1 Denmark and is available at odds of 9/1.

Alternatively, you can bet on any Netherlands win at 1.9/1 against Denmark at home on Saturday.

Or, back any away win for Denmark at 4/1 here at The Johan Cruyff Arena.

You can find odds of 3.5/1 for any draw between Netherlands and Denmark on Saturday.

Match preview

The Netherlands welcomes Denmark to the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam on Saturday for this International Friendly match.

Oranje have the upper hand in the head-to-head, with 12 wins to Denmark’s eight, from their 29 encounters in International football. Although, the Danish hold the most memorable victory between them; a 5-4 win on penalties in the semi-finals of Euro 1992 en-route to winning the competition in Sweden against Germany in the final.

While Denmark lost their last international match back in November, it was a match that had little riding on it and their taking the foot off the pedal would be understandable. Their record prior to that was an impressive nine wins in nine, with 30 goals for and one against.

This following on the back of a strong performance in the Euro 2020 tournament, losing in extra time against England at Wembley Stadium, London. It furthers the idea that this Denmark side, full of talented players aged 25 and under, will be a real force in major tournaments in the next eight years.

The Netherlands, on the other hand, had a disappointing Euro 2020 overall. Their shock defeat at the hands of the Czech Republic in their first knockout match saw them exit the tournament without facing any of the competition favourites. They regrouped to quality for the World Cup in 2022. Given their group though, this was very much expected.

The main criticism with the Dutch squad remains the lack of an elite goalscorer. Someone in the mould of van Basten, van Nistlerooy, van Persie, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, or Patrick Kluivert. A player you expect to always be in or around the box looking to sniff out a goal. By the end of 2022, Memphis Depay could be Holland’s second-highest goalscorer of all time and yet nobody really considers him amongst those names.

Is this simply the way football has evolved though with most sides not having a typical ‘number 9’ type striker in modern football? Has the “Messi and Ronaldo” era shown us that the goalscorers of the future will be atypical forwards? The three top scorers in the Premier League today are Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota and Son Heung-Min, for example.

Memphis First Goalscorer – Regardless of how you label him, there is no doubt that Memphis is the main source of goals for this Dutch side. He has 38 in 75 international caps with Gini Wijnaldum the only other Dutch players in the double figures for goals. Memphis (pictured above) is 3.75/1 to score the game’s opener on Saturday against Denmark.

Netherlands team news

Holland come into this international break with a large 28 man squad to choose from. In addition, Justin Bijlow, Stefan de Vrij, Jeremie Frimpong and Luuk de Jong were all in the preliminary squad before being cut from the final 28.

With Bijlow and Jasper Cillessen (pictured above) not involved in the squad, plus the retirement of Maarten Stekelenburg after Euro 2020, there is a strong chance we see a new face between the sticks for the Netherlands here. Mark Flekken and Joël Drommel are the two battling for the chance to receive their first international cap here for The Flying Dutchmen. PSV defender Jordan Teze is also hoping for his first cap on Saturday.

Denmark team news

Christian Eriksen (pictured above) has been called up for Denmark for the first time since suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch in a match against Finland at Euro 2020. He missed Brentford’s previous game with COVID-19 but the Danish coach believes he will be available for this match.

“Everything indicates, unless something unforeseen happens, that he [Eriksen] is down here on Wednesday night and can train fully on Thursday and Friday.”
–  Kasper Hjulmand, Denmark National Team manager
