Turkey vs Netherlands Prediction: World Cup Qualifier Match on 24.03.2021
There is plenty for football fans to look forward to this week, including a packed World Cup qualifying schedule on Tuesday. The Netherlands travel to Turkey on Wednesday evening in one of the schedule’s main attractions, and this game is sure to attract attention. Neutrals will be eager to check out the Netherlands before this season’s Euros.
Turkey and the Netherlands have met a dozen times in the past on competitive action, and the head-to-head stats are closer than some would expect. The Netherlands have five wins against the three of Turkey and four draws. Can the home team narrow the gap with a victory here? They haven’t lost to Wednesday’s opponents since 2013.
Turkey enjoy a delightful run
Turkey starts its campaign on the back of a decent run of form. They haven’t scored too many victories over the last year, but they haven’t lost many matches either. The locals are on an impressive run, winning one, drawing five and losing two of their last eight games. That will do wonders for team morale ahead of this test.
Turkey followed five draws on the bounce with a decisive 3-2 home victory over Russia in the UEFA Nations League. It was an end-to-end match, but the Turks were deserving winners that day. Despite the success, they lost their next game, beaten 2-0 away to Hungary in the Nations League back in November.
Hope among fans of the Netherlands
There’s hope among fans of the Netherlands as supporters want to see their team back competing for significant honours. Once the envy of planet football, the Orange have dropped out of the picture in recent years. Is the tide about to turn back in their favour once again?
The Netherlands will kick-off this game unbeaten in their last five games, a run stretching back to October of last year. That purple patch consists of three draws followed by back-to-back victories. They beat Bosnia 3-1 in the Nations League back in November before edging Poland 2-1 in the same competition last time out. Goals from Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum helped them fight back from losing an early goal.
Turkey vs Netherland predictions
The recent form of both teams suggests this will be a hard-fought but entertaining 90 minutes of action. The home team know they are up against it playing a team with the talent of the Netherlands but take confidence from their home advantage and the fact they have players good enough to create chances and score goals.
The Netherlands have been performing below par for many years now, but they are good enough to win three points when at their best. They also have the talent to go all the way and win this tournament. A critical few months lie ahead for the Netherlands, and a win here would be the perfect start for them.
