Argentina came into the 2022 FIFA World Cup as one of the top three betting favorites to win the championship. The South American giants have made it to the quarter-finals and will have to get past the Netherlands to continue their march to the championship.

This is the second of the four quarter-finals and will take place on Dec 10 at the Lusail Stadium.

We expect both teams to have a strong show of support as the Netherlands fans will be dressed in Orange as usual and fans from Argentina will be sporting the blue and white stripes that Argentina are known for.

The Netherlands will be pleased with their performance so far after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Netherlands’ FIFA World Cup odds to win the trophy have improved since the tournament began.

The Dutch are keen to win this World Cup for their coach Louis van Gaal who is battling cancer and will most likely not get another chance to lead the Netherlands to a World Cup victory.

Argentina vs Netherlands Prediction – FIFA World Cup 2022

On the last two occasions, these two sides played each other in a World Cup (2006, 2014), the match ended in a goalless draw. Argentina got the better and won in 2014 after a penalty shootout.

While history suggests a tight match that could end up in another goalless draw, our experts disagree.

We are going to back the Netherlands to score the first goal as Argentina are going to be under a lot more pressure as they have holes in their defense that Louis van Gaal will look to exploit early on.

Recommended Betting Tip: Netherlands (3.60)

Netherlands vs Argentina – Team Performance In Qatar  

The Netherlands have played good football during the group stages in Qatar and have not lost a game. Team Orange has got better with each game as the players acclimatized to the heat and conditions in Qatar.

The Netherlands beat Senegal and Qatar and finished with a 1-1 draw against Ecuador. They beat the USA in the round of 16 easily and finished with a 3-1 scoreline to advance to the quarter-finals.

Argentina suffered a shock defeat in their opening game against Saudi Arabia but bounced back quickly after that to win against Poland and Mexico by 2-0 in both games. They had an easy game in the round of 16 when they beat Australia 2-1 to advance to the quarter-finals.

Netherlands vs Argentina Match Betting Options

Argentina have loads of talent but none better than their captain Lionel Messi. However, they are going to need all of their players to be on top of their game as the Netherlands will be their toughest challenge yet at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Argentina’s defense buckled in their loss to Saudi Arabia and they recovered after that to concede just one goal in their last game against the United States.

If you do not know how to bet on FIFA World Cup, we have it covered.

All Eyes On Lionel Messi

We expect the Dutch defenders to tie down Messi and hence it will be up to Alvarez and Di Maria to get creative and score.

The Netherlands have got a good strategy going for them using Gakpo and Depay early on and then bringing on Steven Bergwijn as the substitute to keep attacking till the end.

What the Dutch have missed is some creative mid-field play from Frenkie de Jong who has looked flat in most games. de Jong will need to create those openings for Gakpo and Depay early on to put Argentina under pressure.

We are going to back the Netherlands to score early on and hold on to that lead and beat Argentina.

Netherlands vs Argentina Top Goal Scorers Betting

Lionel Messi is currently the top scorer for Argentina in this World Cup with 3 goals while Julian Alvarez has 2. Alexis Mac Allister and Enzo Fernandez have one each.

Messi is once again going to be the most dangerous player for Argentina on the field.

Cody Gakpo leads the goal list for the Netherlands with 3 goals while Davy Klaassen, Memphis Depay, Daley Blind, Denzel Dumfries, and Frenkie de Jong have scored one each.

This is a good sign for the Netherlands as multiple players have scored and will be confident going forward against Argentina.

Recommended Betting Tip: Lionel Messi or Cody Gakpo

Netherlands vs Argentina Squads

Both teams are likely to go in with the below-playing XI as Argentina are expecting Angel Di Maria to be ready to play after missing out against the United States.
