Netherlands vs WalesUEFA Nations League, KO: 19:45 Jun 14, 2022, De Kuip
NETHERLANDS will be looking to return to winning ways in Nations League Group A4 when they welcome Wales to De Kuip on Tuesday night.
The Orange were unable to maintain their 100% start to the campaign as they played out an action-packed 2-2 draw with Poland on Saturday.
Nevertheless, Louis Van Gaal's side have picked up seven points from their first three matches and sit three points clear of Belgium at the summit.
Netherlands will now look to tighten their grip on top spot when they come up against Wales again this midweek.
After opening with a pair of back-to-back defeats – one of which came against the Dutch – the Dragons finally got the mark thanks to a 1-1 draw with Belgium on Saturday night.
Wales boss Rob Page will be hoping that spirited stalemate will act as a springboard to kick-start his side's campaign but a trip to Rotterdam will represent their toughest test to date.
Netherlands, who have won seven of their last eight competitive contests, enter this contest as odds-on 10/29 favourites with SBK.
Wales have fallen to defeat in each of their previous nine encounters with Netherlands and the bookies' odds suggest that trend will continue here, with an away win trading at a towering 10/1 (BoyleSports) while the draw is also deemed improbable at 17/4 (BetVictor).
I successfully backed Both Teams to Score in Wales' match with Belgium on Saturday and I'm happy to support the same selection here at 11/10 with Bet 365.
There is no doubt that the Dutch appear to be heading in the right direction but keeping clean sheets remains an issue.
Louis van Gaal's backline have bagged just one shutout across their last seven matches, falling to keep Wales at bay in last week's reverse fixture.
Not only did both teams score that night, but BTTS has also been a winning bet in four of Netherland's last six home games, a sample that includes three of their last four outings on home turf.
With that in mind, coupled with the fact that Wales have scored in each of their last six meaningful road matches, the Dragons do look capable of getting in on the act at De Kuip.
It's also worth pointing out that both teams to score punters would have been rewarded in eight of Wales' last 10 matches and that only adds to the appeal of siding with the same play at 11/10 (Bet 365)on Tuesday night.
I'll also dip into the player card market and take the 11/1 on offer with Bet 365 for Netherlands centre-half Jurrien Timber to pick up a card.
The young Dutch defender picked up three cards in eight appearances for Ajax in this season's Champions League so he could be worth a small play for interest here at a bold price given the pace and power that Wales possess in forward and wide areas.
