The Netherlands and Belarus face each other at the De Kuip in Rotterdam for the opening game of their European Championship Qualifiers journey.
The resurgent Netherlands national team has finished top of the UEFA Nations League Group A/1 ahead of France and Germany, securing two wins in three games after suffering a 2-1 loss to the reigning World Cup holders in the opener (W2, D1, L1). Unbeaten in their last four games (W2, D2), the Oranje are looking to stretch their four-game home winning run against Belarus. What’s more, Ronald Koeman’s men have been ruthless at home in the past two years, securing seven triumphs in their last eight home outings (W7, L1). In that period, Holland have scored over 1.5 goals per match every time they’ve picked up all three points while preserving a clean slate five times along the way.
Meanwhile, the visitors have racked up a six-game unbeaten streak in the build-up to this meeting (W4, D2), keeping a clean sheet in every single game during the run. Another encouraging fact for the White Wings is that they’ve notched 2+ match goals four times in that period although failing to find the back of the net twice. Even though it may seem surprising, but Igor Kriushenko’s men have won four of their last six road clashes (W4, D1, L1), struggling for a clean sheet only once. However, all three of Belarus’ previous visits to Holland have ended catastrophically for them, considering they’ve conceded 3+ match goals in each while scoring barely one in the process.
