Netherlands vs Iceland Prediction 10 June 2024

Netherlands take on the visitors Iceland in a Friendly International match. The match will be played on Monday, June 10th at De Kuip (Rotterdam).

"Oranje," after a notable downturn, began to improve significantly under Ronald Koeman, who led them to the previous Euro. The Dutch truly shone at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, reaching the knockout stages and staging a dramatic comeback against Argentina in the quarterfinals. The future champions only managed to secure victory in a penalty shootout, with Emiliano Martínez once again showcasing his brilliance. After such a performance, Louis van Gaal stepped down, handing over the reins to one of his protégés. This successor almost faced dismissal after a heavy defeat to France and losses to Croatia and Italy in the "home" Nations League finals. Nevertheless, the Netherlands secured a direct qualification to the Euro, largely due to victories against Greece and Ireland. In March, they continued their familiar pattern with a convincing 4-0 win over Scotland but lost to Germany. They started their summer training camp by scoring four goals against Canada, who failed to respond.

Iceland has lost its edge. The "Ice Men" made their mark in the mid-2010s, with many looking into the small island's success in building a competitive team. That generation shone at their debut Euro 2016, reaching the playoffs. They then made it to the World Cup, but there they only managed a single draw, albeit against Argentina. Since then, however, they haven’t qualified for any major tournaments. They had a chance to make it to the upcoming tournament, not through standard qualification, where they performed mediocrely last year, but through the "Nations League path," where a few relatively weak opponents needed to be overcome. The first step was a comfortable 4-1 win over Israel, although the performance was not flawless. However, after taking the lead against Ukraine, they were outplayed in the second half by Sudakov, Tsyhankov, and company. The team has also lost Gudmundsson due to serious legal issues. Albert was the standout performer in the playoffs, scoring a hat-trick against Israel and netting a brilliant long-range goal against Ukraine. Replacing him might be a tall order, but that's precisely the purpose of friendly matches – to test and experiment. However, their encounter with England ended in a crushing 0-3 defeat.

In their first 10 head-to-head encounters, the Dutch allowed their opponents only one draw. However, in their most recent meetings, on the road to their debut Euro 2016, the "Ice Men" managed to defeat the "Oranje" favorites twice. It's likely that the upcoming match will follow a similar pattern to their past encounters. We predict that the "Oranje" will win with a "-2 goal" handicap.

Prediction for the match: Netherlands to win with -2.0 handicap.
