Duel for a World championship starting grid
At the match of the host Germany against the Netherlands it’s about reaching the starting grid for the U 20 world championship 2017 in South Korea. After the last performance Germany is a little bit more the favourite. However the Netherlands also have shown that the can keep up with the best nations. Kick-off on the 21st of July is at 7 p.m..
Current performance of Germany
A long time it doesn’t have looked good for the German U19 national team in this tournament. The first two matches at the group stage have been lost. At first they had to suffer a defeat against Italy with a score of 0:1 and then Portugal has been their stumbling block with a result of 3:4. The main problem in these two matches has been the use of goal chances. Especially the first match against Italy should have been won by Germany but due to a hand penalty they have got the decisive goal from the other side. At the third group match against Austria it was all about making loss limitation and getting a starting grid for the world championship. They have started as title holder in this tournament they have beaten their “little brother” with a score of 3:0 and therefore have saved the third position of the group A. With the Netherlands a rival who is tougher is waiting for the Guido Streichsbier eleven. The strength of Germany is the offensive play even though they play with a 4-4-1-1 defence tactic. Until now four players are in the scorer table. We will see if there will be some more after the play against the Netherlands.
Current performance of the Netherlands
The team of the Netherlands is the counterpart to the German team. At least when it comes to results. While the host has lost the first match closely. The “oranjes” have won their first match against Croatia with a score of 2:1. After this there was nothing to see from their self-esteem. They even have lost against England where a last minute goal was decisive as well as against France. Not the defeat itself was alarming. It was the way they have lost the match. The Netherlands seemed to be overtaxed in some parts of the match. They haven’t been present at the defence and therefore they have lost with a score of 1:5. The only goal was scored by the captain of the team Abdelhak Nouri. It is definitely possible that Coach Aaron Winter will not use the offensive 4-3-3-system against Germany and focuses more on a stable defence. In addition the coach needs also psychological skills to make this defeat forget fast.
Betting tip for this match
Due to the latest performance Germany is a little bit more the favourite in this match. Also the home advantage speaks for the Streichsbier eleven. For the Netherlands it’s more to make a loss limitation and show a reaction to the match against France. Our tip: tip 1.
