Netherlands v Croatia Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
In their last matches in all competitions, the Netherlands have a record of three wins and two losses. Croatia, meanwhile, have had three wins, one draw and one loss. Let’s now take a more in-depth look into both teams.
Netherlands v Croatia Prediction – Preview
The Netherlands booked their slot in the semi-final by finishing on top of League A Group 4 with 16 points. In their last league match in September, they defeated neighbours Belgium 1-0, with Virgil van Dijk scoring the winner on 73 minutes. They then made it to the World Cup quarter-finals, but were knocked out by Argentina on penalties, 2(3)-2(4). They last saw action in March for the Euro 2024 qualifiers, losing to France 0-3 and defeating Gibraltar 4-0. The Ronald Koeman-led side now try to win their first trophy in years by first going up a tough Croatian side who placed 3rd in the World Cup semi-finals. Will they be up to the task?
Croatia made it to the semis by topping League A Group 1 with 13 points. In their last league match, they saw off Austria 3-1. Luka Modric, Marko Livaja and Dejan Lovren all netted in the victory. Just like the Netherlands, they went deep into last year’s World Cup and defeated Croatia 2-1 to clinch 3rd place in the tournament. In the recent Euro 2024 qualifiers, they drew with Wales 1-1 before defeating Turkey 2-0. The Zlatko Dalic-led squad now have another chance at a major trophy in the UNL, but standing in their way is one of the best Dutch sides in years. Will they be unfazed in their quest?
Netherlands v Croatia Prediction – Final Thoughts
Both sides will lose crucial players on game day, as Memphis Depay of the Netherlands and Josko Gvardiol of Croatia will sit out due to injury. Still, we expect a close one between these two teams, being both top performers in last year’s World Cup. However, we feel the Oranje have the firepower to outlast the tough Chequered Ones, and we see the Dutch squeaking their way into the final. On that note, let’s take a look at the prediction.
