Holland v Germany 19:45

A heavyweight clash on Saturday night in the Nations League as Holland host Germany. Both sides have a bit to prove at the moment with Holland not even qualifying for the recent World Cup, while Germany flopped over in Russia and as a result have dropped in the FIFA Rankings right down to 12th, with Holland currently 17th.

They last played back in 2012 and that ended in a 0-0 draw so the neutrals out there will be hoping we don’t get a repeat of that. 0-0 can be backed at 13.00.

The match betting sees Germany as the clear favourites at 2.05, despite being the away side, with the draw 3.50 and Holland 3.40.

In total, the teams have met 25 times before and it’s actually the draw that’s been the most popular outcome (10), with Holland recording 8 wins to Germany’s 7.

The Germans also head into the game unbeaten in their last five vs Holland – but we have seen three draws during that same period. It is worth noting though Holland have struggled a bit at home against Germany with just 1 victory in their last 7 over them.

3 of the last 5 clashes went OVER 2.5 GOALS so at 1.72 this option will be popular, while with 6 of the last 8 head-to-heads seeing both teams score then the 1.61 on this happening again makes plenty of appeal too.

In the scoring markets, Timo Werner is the shortest German player at 5.50 (1st) or 2.30 (anytime), while Arnaut Groeneveld leads the way for Holland at 7.50 (1st) and 2.87 (anytime).

So, a fascinating clash that sees both teams having a fair amount to prove. The draw at 3.50 is probably the safest call in the win-draw-win market but we are going to play this game by siding with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE at 1.61 – something that’s paid out in 75% of the last 8 meetings.
