Frank De Boer has started his Dutch campaign without a win, he’ll be certainly wanting to turn this around. Let’s also not forget that Oranje were the finalists of last time’s UEFA Nations League
La Roja on the other hand have drawn 0-0 with Portugal and lost 1-0 to Ukraine. Spain have scored just one goal in last 3 matches and face Switzerland and Germany in next fixtures.
