Netherlands vs Gibraltar: Head to head statistics

Match preview

After being smashed by France on Friday night, can Netherlands get off the mark in Rotterdam?

On matchday one, Oranje were embarrassingly beaten 4-0 at Stade de France, finding themselves three down after just 21 minutes.

The fact Memphis saw a stoppage time penalty saved compounded a miserable night for the Dutch.

Most would still expect France and the Netherlands to qualify from Group B, but Greece and Ireland will have been watching that Dutch performance believing they are catchable.

With Ronald Koeman’s side not in qualification action again until September, it’s vitally important that they claim three points here.

This seems a formality, given that Gibraltar have now lost all 39 qualifiers they’ve ever played, conceding 180 goals.

This continued on Friday with Julio César Ribas’ side swatted aside 3-0 by Greece at their temporary home of Estádio Algarve.

During World Cup 2022 qualifying, Netherlands beat Gibraltar 7-0 away and 6-0 at home, with a similar result expected at De Kuip.

Netherlands team news

Denzel Dumfries missed Friday night’s defeat in Paris suspended, so will return at right-back here.

Elsewhere, Sven Botman, Stefan de Vrij, Lutsharel Geertruida, Frenkie de Jong and Cody Gakpo have all withdrawn from the squad due to injury or illness.

Memphis scored three times in two games against Gibraltar in 2021, and will fancy his chances of adding to his 43 international goals here.

Gibraltar team news

18 year old Nicholas Pozo is set to be the star of this team, plying his trade with La Liga club Cádiz.
