Netherlands predicted lineup vs Gibraltar: Preview, Latest Team News, Prediction and Livestream- FIFA World Cup Qualifiers 2021/22 Gameweek 8
The FIFA World Cup Qualifiers enter into the final stages in Group G as entering Matchday 8 slowly shapes up the build-up to the world’s biggest sporting event. Alley Sport brings you the Netherlands predicted lineup vs Gibraltar, Preview, Team News, Livestream, and prediction from the 2022 Qatar World Cup Qualifiers.
Netherlands head coach Louis Van Gaal has had a team beating almost everyone they faced since their disappointing exit in the Round of 16 of UEFA Euros. The Dutch have played 3 games since then, out of which they won two out of three qualifier games, which began with a 1-1 draw with Norway, followed by a 4-0 thrashing of Montenegro, and a 6-1 demolition of Turkey at Amsterdam on 8th September.
The Dutch have retained most of its players with only Club Brugge winger Noa Lang and Freiburg goalkeeper Mark Flekken earning their first call-ups for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers. Head coach LVG’s inclusion of FC Barcelona’s striker Luuk De Jong adds more experience among their ranks in a squad of talented players. Despite sitting top of Group G, OnsOranje and Van Gaal will be eager to wrap up their qualification easily and swiftly.
Netherlands predicted lineup vs Gibraltar: Preview
The Netherlands has always been a team with a fabled history in creating and scoring goals but more about the team and how it performs in the big moments. During their Euros run, Memphis Depay was excellent in every game as he put up impressive performances consistently to lead his team into the knockouts. A team consisting of top players like Virgil Van Djik and several new talents like Ryan Gravenberch is arguably a team with high expectations like the Dutch teams of the past. The 2022 Qatar World Cup provides OnsOranje with a chance to add another golden generation with a winning mentality back to the top of the football world.
As for Gibraltar, they are a team who are out of contention to qualify for the World Cup and will be playing for pride in their remaining games in Group G. Under Julio César Ribas, they have been in a poor run of form, failing to win even one match in their last 5 outings. Both teams though in contrasting positions have left themselves with a point to prove and a victory will be all that matters for both nations.
Netherlands predicted lineup vs Gibraltar: Prediction
The Netherlands will be the favorites going into the tie because they will be looking for a win at home and a golden opportunity for Van Gaal to seal their World Cup qualification. My prediction for the game would be a one-sided contest ending in a 4-0 victory for the OnsOranje at the Amsterdam Arena. It will be much more of a business as usual for the home side as they will be superior to their opposition in almost every department. The Oranje will be keen to end their campaign with a statement victory. As for Gibraltar, they will be a team desperate for a victory, with the players motivated to have a say in the proceedings of the day.
