Germany v Netherlands Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
September 03, 2019
Volksparkstadion - EURO 2020 Qualifier
Germany host Ronald Koeman's Netherlands in Hamburg on the path to Euro 2020, after beating De Oranje in the Amsterdam leg back in March.
Germany beat the Netherlands 3-2 at the Johan Cruyff Arena in March, with Nico Schulz scoring a later winner.
However the Netherlands picked up a win and a draw in their Euro Nations League campaign against Joachim Loew's side.
Germany are without Premier League duo Leroy Sane and Antonio Rudiger through injury, alongside PSG midfielder Julian Draxler. However, Manuel Neuer, Josh Kimmich, Toni Kroos and Ilkay Gundogan are all included.
Koeman has the majority of his key players fit, with Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt, Daley Blind and Gini Wijnaldum all called up.
Germany v Netherlands Preview and Predictions
Loew's side have started EURO 2020 qualification strongly, with three successive wins - over the Netherlands, Belarus and Estonia - and they have a game in hand over Group C leaders Northern Ireland. Germany have looked effective in attack, with 13 goals in their first three qualifiers - and no defeats in their last six appearances in Euro Nations League, friendly and EURO 2020 qualifying action.
Koeman's Netherlands reached the Euro Nations League final, before losing 1-0 to hosts Portugal, but they do not head into this clash on the back of a positive run of form. Defeat to Germany in their opening qualifier was 4-0 home win over Belarus, before returning to form to beat England on penalties in the Euro Nations League semi final.
The Netherlands need to start collecting points if they want to avoid a gap developing between them and the top two sides in Group C - however Germany look strong on home soil - and a draw, priced at 13/5, looks like a good option. Recent meetings between these two sides have been goal filled, with 12 goals scored in their last three games in the last 11 months - and this one promises to be a thriller - with an over 2.5 total goals scored bet available at.
A 2-2 draw at 11/1
Both sides are at their best going forward right, and even with a long way still to go in qualification, the Netherlands cannot really afford to lose another game if they want to keep the pressure up on Germany and Northern Ireland.
Serge Gnabry to score anytime at 2/1
The former Arsenal man has been in fine form for Loew's side in recent games, and he is expected to take on even more attacking responsibility due to the absence of Sane. The Bayern Munich man has four goals in his last five international appearances, including two in his last two appearances against Germany.
