Analysis and forecast for the match on the tenth qualifying day for Euro 2024 Gibraltar – Netherlands (11/21/2023)
Club football took a break, giving way to the qualifying matches for the European Championship in Germany. On November 21, seven matches will be played on the tenth day of the qualifying tournament. In one of them, at the São João da Venda stadium in Portugal, the Gibraltar team will play against the Netherlands. The starting whistle will sound at 22:45 Moscow time.
The Danes are in good shape:
Northern Ireland – Denmark. It will be boring without Hoylund and Eriksen
The Gibraltar team has always been one of the main outsiders on the international stage. Scoring a goal is already an important event for her. The “fifty-four” are ranked 198 in the world ranking. His best achievement was 190th place, in October 2018.
In all seven games of the qualification tournament for Euro 2024, Julio Ribas’ team lost. During this period they did not score a single goal, while they conceded 35. The Gibraltarians conceded 14 of them in the last round match against France. The defeat was the biggest for them in the entire history of their existence.
The statistics are terrible, but things could be even worse. In the match against Holland, the “fifty-fourth” lost 0:3, but they could well have lost more. The Orange took 49 shots, but only 11 of them hit the target. Ribas’ players didn’t even get close to their goal.
Following the return of Ronald Koeman as coach, the Netherlands’ finishing problems have worsened. In seven qualifying matches for Euro 2024, he scored only 11 goals and conceded seven. Interestingly, this was enough to guarantee them access to the final round of the tournament.
The Dutch team only lost to France (0-4 and 1-2). She won all the other matches. True, it is difficult to call them confident. In the last two rounds, Koeman’s team beat Greece (1-0) and Ireland (1-0) by a slim margin.
The Czechs are serious:
Czech Republic – Moldova. Sergei Kleshchenko will be deprived of optimism
After the match with the Irish, many criticized Koeman. Russian coach Alexander Grigoryan called the match an incredible drag. He noted that he remembers Ronald as a legendary soccer player, but considers him a boring mentor.
Grigoryan expressed his bewilderment: how can the game with such a selection of athletes be so boring? He also highlighted that it does not matter whether Koeman plays with three defenders or with two, because the number of interactions is minimal. Alexander summarized that we see the Dutch team, which has very limited creativity.
Can Koeman improve? The opponent is very convenient. I think this time the Dutch will score more than three goals. You can bet on the victory of the “oranges” with a handicap (-4.5) in bookmakers with an odds of 1.87. They won two of the last three head-to-head matchups by big scores.
The fact is that the pressure from the Dutch has disappeared. By defeating Ireland, they secured their qualification for Euro 2024. Now you can play not for the result, but to preserve your image and soothe your soul. It is unlikely that the Orange will score as many as France, but they will surely be able to score six or seven goals.
Harry Kane listens to the coach:
North Macedonia – England. Kane will establish Southgate
It is difficult to say how long Koeman will remain as coach of the national team. His players performed poorly in the matches with France and failed to succeed in the Nations League. In the semifinals they lost to Croatia (2-4), and in the match for third place, to Italy (3-4). However, the next rival is very convenient.
Prediction and bets for the Euro 2024 qualification match Gibraltar – Netherlands November 21, 2023
In the first match, Gibraltar miraculously did not give up any more. Their players have much lower individual skills and their team play is also worse than that of the Dutch team. The oranges are going through difficult times, but they simply have to beat a rival like this in a big way. In addition, the Gibraltarians will find it difficult to recover from the defeat in the last match against France by 0:14.
Tender: victory for Holland with a handicap (-4.5) for a odds of 1.87.
