Netherlands v Argentina Prediction – Preview
The Netherlands punched their ticket into the World Cup quarter-final by dominating the USA 3-1 in the round of 16. With the Stars and Stripes challenging them with their aggressiveness, The Oranje came up big, with Denzel Dumfries figuring in each goal. The Inter Milan star first passed to Memphis Depay for the breakthrough goal, then cut back to Daley Blind who doubled the lead. Dumfries then scored last for the Dutch just 5 minutes after Haji Wright pulled one back for the Yanks. It was a clinical performance from Louis van Gaal‘s side, who now move on to face a greater challenge in the star-studded Argentina side. Will their fully-healthy side overcome the feisty La Albiceleste?
The Netherlands have lost just 1 of their 9 contests with Argentina in all competitions (W4 D4); that in the 1978 World Cup Final. But the most recent of the 4 draws ended in a penalty shootout loss–their last meeting in the 2014 World Cup semi-final.
The Oranje have progressed from their last 3 World Cup quarter-final games (1998, 2010, 2014), with their only loss at this stage being in 1994 against eventual winners Brazil.
Argentina went straight into the quarterfinal by just narrowly edging Australia 2-1 at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium. Talisman Lionel Messi marked his 1,000th game with a stunning bottom-left corner goal in the 35th minute to open the scoring. Julian Alvarez then doubled the lead after the break as he went past the defence to slot into the empty net. The Socceroos threatened when Craig Goodwin‘s cross hit Enzo Fernandez in the face on the way into the net. However, Lionel Scaloni‘s side held on for the win, arranging a date with the highly-talented Oranje. Can La Albiceleste’s quest for the elusive third World Cup survive the impending onslaught of the Dutch?
Next to Germany (7), the Netherlands will be the most faced-against opponent of Argentina in the World Cup, with this quarter-final being their 6th meeting.
Since losing to Uruguay in the 1930 final, Argentina’s last 9 eliminations from the knockout rounds (as well as finals), were against European countries. THis includes a 1-2 defeat to the Netherlands in the 1998 quarter-final.
