Wales will be hosting the Netherlands this week, as it plays its second match in the ongoing edition of the Nations League.
Despite losing its first match of the league, the Wales team and the fans will be elated, as it made it to the FIFA World Cup finals for the first time since 1958. While it was an extremely closely fought match, an own goal by Yarmolenko in the 34th minute turned out to be the decisive factor, as the home crowd at Cardiff went berserk as the final whistle blew.
Prior to that, Wales faced Poland for its first match of the league. Robb Page had kept his key players under cotton wool for that match, as the upcoming qualifiers were expectedly higher on the priority list. Jonny Williams was the first to score for the visitors, but the home team soon followed up with quick goals from Kaminski and Swiderski and handed them three important points. However, with the spot in Qatar sealed, Wales will be looking to secure a morale-boosting win in this game.
Similarly, the Netherlands too will be pretty high on confidence, after beating the second-ranked team Belgium on its own turf. While they started as the underdogs on most football betting sites, the exit of Romelu Lukaku in the 27th minute due to an injury proved to be a fillip, and they ran riot at the King Baudouin Stadium.
Memphis Depay scored a brace, while Denzel Dumfries and Steven Bergwijn too scored a goal each, as the visitors won a convincing 4-1 win. Playing its second consecutive match on the road, the Oranje team will be definitely looking to build upon its winning momentum.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Wales vs Netherlands, UEFA Nations League 2022. The match is going to be played at the Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff, on 8th June 2022.
Given the recent form of both the teams, it sure looks like we have an exciting contest lined up ahead of us. With the World Cup spot secured for both nations, we can expect a fearless and attacking play from both sides.
With 3 matches lined up in the next week, Robb Page will have to do a lot of juggling as he looks to protect his players from burning out, as well as ensure that they do not fall back in League B. Wayne Hennessey may be rested, as Brennan Johnson, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Chris Mepham look to make a start.
As for the visitors, Daley Blinds may be rested, while Virgil van Dijk too will miss out on this game. Stefan de Vrij, Matthijs de Ligt, and Vincent Janssen are likely to make a return.
Despite its ecstatic win against Ukraine, we predict that the hosts will find themselves short by at least a couple of goals.
Bet on the Netherlands to win.
5 of the last 6 matches of Wales have produced goals on both sides of the pitch. Similarly, 4 of the last 5 matches for the Netherlands have also seen both the teams score. We are expecting more of the same this week too.
5 of the last 7 matches between the two teams have produced more than 2.5 goals. 4 of the last 6 outings for the Netherlands too have produced more than 2.5 goals, and we are likely to witness another goal-fest when both the teams clash on Wednesday.
