Qatar became the first-ever host nation to be eliminated after just two games, losing 2-0 to Ecuador in their opener before also losing 3-1 to Senegal to seal their fate.
It was always going to be a massive task for them to make it out of the group having never made it close to the finals previously. In the opening match, Felix Sanchez’s men looked miles off the pace and did so again against Senegal last Friday.
Meanwhile, the Netherlands look set to make it through and could well do so as group winners. Louis van Gaal’s team are level on everything with Ecuador who face Senegal in their final game, with the Dutch side just needing to better their scoreline to claim top spot in Group A.
With teams such as Germany, Belgium, Argentina and Denmark already the victims of major upsets in this World Cup, it has been a great one to take advantage of with some of the best free bets and betting offers around, so why not get in on the action and sign up with one of 101 Great Goals betting offers?

Netherlands vs Qatar Betting Tip
Daily Acca by TipMan
Wales v England
England to win
England take on Wales in a game that will see England either top the group or qualify in 2nd behind USA or Iran. Wales fell to a late 2-0 defeat to Iran that left them bottom group B needing a win and other results to go their way to have any chance of qualifying. England will likely make changes after their less than impressive goalless draw to USA. Phil Foden and Jack Grealish could come into the side, with many also calling for Harry Kane to be rested. England need to win the group to guarantee a top place finish and we expect them to do so against Wales team that look guaranteed to be exiting the World Cup here.
Iran v USA
Iran or draw
We have taken a chance on Iran to take a point and seal qualification here behind England. They rightfully beat Wales 2-0 with 2 late goals and scored 2 goals against the formidable England defence. USA however are struggling to score goals despite some very nice build up play. They’ve surprised many people here and took a point from England, which very few expected them to do so, but they have 1 goal in their 2 games so far. Iran however have 4 goals and carry in the confidence from the late Wales win. Iran are ranked 20th in the World, and we don’t think they gave a true reflection of themselves in the England game. We think they will get at least a point here and seal qualification.
Netherlands v Qatar
Over 2.5 Match Goals
Netherlands will consider themselves lucky to be top of Group A here with 4 points from 2 very lacklustre performances. Qatar however will be no match for Netherlands. We expect Netherlands to line up strong here as the group is still wide open and attempt to get the job done early so they can rest players. There is plenty of quality in that Netherlands team and we expect them to be at least 2 to the good by half time. There was very little value with Netherlands win or over 1.5 team goals, so we went with over 2.5 match goals here and expect a Netherlands thrashing to dust off the cobwebs from the first 2 games.
Ecuador v Senegal
Ecuador or draw
Ecuador were very unlucky to not take all 3 points from Group favourites Netherlands. They went 1-0 down early to a Gakpo masterclass but from there on in, which was Netherlands only shot on target in the entire game. Ecuador had plenty of shots at goal and equalised through Enner Valencia’s 3rd goal of the competition. Ecuador are solid at the back conceding just once in their previous 8 games. Senegal beat Qatar 3-1 despite a flurry of late chances for the home nation, and were unlucky to lost to Netherlands 2-0 in their opener. A point here will be enough though for Ecuador to seal qualification, and with their defensive record and physicality, we expect them to grind out at least a point here.
