Netherlands vs Argentina Predictions & Betting Tips (World Cup)

 by Steve Ashfield |

The Netherlands take on Argentina in the quarter finals of the 2022 World Cup. The winners of this match will face either Brazil or Croatia in the semi-finals. This is a repeat of the 1978 World Cup final that saw hosts Argentina become world champions and the Dutch team finishing runners-up for the second successive tournament. This is the first time the Netherlands have qualified for the World Cup finals since 2014 when they finished third. Argentina last became world champions in 1986 and have lost two finals since then. Only once in the last six tournaments have they managed to get past the quarter final stage. Could this be the year that Lionel Messi finally lifts the World Cup trophy or will the Netherlands recapture past glories?

Form Analysis

Argentina lost their first match in this 2022 World Cup but have recovered well since then with three wins. There looks to be further improvement possible for the Argentinian team. The loss to Saudi Arabia is the only one that they have suffered in their last 40 internationals. This run began after a loss to Brazil in July 2019 and they may well get a chance for revenge in the semi-final. The Argentinians haven't been beaten by a non-South American country since their 4-3 loss to France in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup. They have won eight of their last nine internationals. Only Brazil have stopped them scoring in their last 14 games.

The Netherlands are on an unbeaten run stretching back to June of last year when being beaten by the Czech Republic at the European Championships. Since then, they have played 19 games without being beaten, winning 14 of them. Three of their four games in this tournament have been won, the other a 1-1 draw with Ecuador. The Dutch team has scored at least twice in three of their four matches. Only in one of their last 32 internationals have they failed to get on the scoresheet.

Squad analysis

The Netherlands have not reported any fresh injuries and could field the line-up that started against the USA. Argentina have a doubt over Alejandro Gomez who went off in the second half of their win over Australia.  Angel Di Maria has a thigh injury and as with the previous match may again be missing.

  1. The Netherlands have scored in all but one of their last 32 games.
  2. Argentina have scored in 13 of their last 14 matches.
  3. The Argentinian games against Saudi Arabia and Australia saw both teams score.
  4. Two of the last three games played by the Netherlands have seen both teams get on the scoresheet.
  5. Five of the last eight Argentina games in the World Cup finals have seen both teams score.

Our Netherlands vs Argentina prediction

We should be in for a feast of football here. Both countries have highly talented players and it's hard to decide who the winner will be. Argentina made a poor start with that loss to Saudi Arabia. They have fought back well though with wins over Mexico, Poland and Australia. Three goals have been put past them by the Saudis and Australia so that must give their opponents in this quarter-final some hope of beating them.

The Netherlands are on a long unbeaten run and have already qualified for the Nations League finals next year. Their style of play may not be exciting everyone but they are getting good results Would their fans celebrate winning the World Cup but then moan about how they played?  They were impressive in their last 16 match against the USA and Cody Gakpo is in excellent form up front. Our prediction for the Netherlands v Argentina game is for both teams to score.
