On Wednesday, the Netherlands host Spain in a friendly match. The two teams want to prepare their Nations League matches as well as possible.

Netherlands vs Spain Soccer Betting Prediction

The Netherlands is just coming out of a very complicated period marked by non-qualifying for Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup. Since then, the selection has shown a much better face with the advent of a new generation under the leadership of Ronald Koeman. Very consistent in the game, Virgil Van Dijk’s partners stood out by reaching the final of the 1st Nations League. They also composted their ticket for Euro 2021 by taking 2nd place in their qualifying pool, behind Germany. Last September, the Netherlands had to face the departure of coach Ronald Koeman, very important in the renewal of the Batavians. With former deputy Dwight Lodeweges, Oranje less to their advantage started their Nations League A with a victory against Poland (1-0) before falling to Italy (0-1). Led by new coach Frank De Boer, they did not impress more during the last rally. Defeated in a friendly by Mexico (0-1), the Netherlands then lined up 2 draws in Bosnia (0-0) and in Italy (1-1) in the League of Nations.

Disappointing during the last international competitions, Spain, however, has no difficulty in qualifying for the finals. Dominant in Group F of the qualifiers for Euro 2021, La Roja finished, with a record of 6 wins and 2 draws, at the top of the standings. Last September, coach Luis Enrique made his comeback after an absence for family reasons. Present in Group 4 of the Nations League A, Sergio Ramos’ teammates have started well and are at the top of the standings. In September, they took a point in Germany (1-1) before beating Ukraine (4-0). In October, Spain won against Switzerland (1-0) before being surprised on the lawn of a decimated Ukraine (1-0) which had been outclassed by France a few days earlier.

Staff for Netherlands vs Spain

Big blow for the Netherlands who lost for a long time the captain Virgil Van Dijk, injured in the ligaments of the knee. In addition, for this rally, the defender of Juventus Matthijs De Ligt is forfeited while the prodigy of AZ Myron Boadu (19 years old, 1 goal in 1 sel) has barely returned from the covid and was not summoned. In the absence of Van Dijk, Nathan Aké (Chelsea) could have the favours of the coach to compose the central hinge with De Vrij (Inter). Cillessen, Blind, De Jong, Wijnaldum, Depay and De Jong frames are available.

The Spain team has changed a lot and coach Luis Enrique has embarked on a process of renewing the squad. Only the executives of the previous generation Sergio Ramos and Sergio Busquets are still there. With Jesus Navas, they are the only thirty years of the current selection. Make way for young people, and defenders Pau Torres (23 years old, Villarreal) and Sergio Reguilon (23 years old, Tottenham), midfielders Rodri (24 years old, Manchester City) and Dani Olmo (22 years old, Leipzig) and attackers Torres ( 20 years old, Manchester City) and Fati (18 years old, Barcelona) are called upon to play an increasingly important role.
