Netherlands VS Qatar FIFA LIVE Football Score 29/11/2022

Netherlands If the Dutch defeat Qatar or draw with them, they will advance to the round of 16, provided that Ecuador defeat Senegal. They will also advance if they lose to Qatar. However, it would be shocking if they weren’t able to advance from this spot. Louis van Gaal’s team won’t want to take any chances when it comes to their progression. Even though they are the group leaders along with Ecuador, the Netherlands have had a very unstable tournament. They would want to win this match, proceed to the next round as the group topper and avoid England as their opponent.

Qatar Due to their 0-2 record through the first two games, Felix Sanchez and his boys will be desperate to impress the home crowd before they exit the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Middle Eastern team, who are taking part in their maiden world cup finals, will return to competitive play in January as they get ready to compete in the Gulf Cup of Nations.

On November 29, the Netherlands and Qatar will play their third match of the tournament. In Group A, the Netherlands are leading with four points whereas Qatar are yet to open their account. The Netherlands started their campaign with a 2-0 victory against Senegal but settled for a 1-1 draw with Ecuador, who are leading the group at the moment. Qatar, on the other hand, lost both their matches.

Qatar will be playing their third and final game of the World Cup, taking on the mighty Netherlands at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. The Group A showdown, the first time the two countries meet on the field, will kick off at 6pm (15:00GMT). The Maroons lost their first two matches – against South Americans Ecuador and African champions Senegal, becoming the second host country after South Africa in 2010 to exit the 32-team competition at the group stages. The Maroons were the first to be eliminated at this year’s World Cup and will hope to avoid becoming the first host country to exit the finals without picking up three points.

Qatar, the reigning Asian champions who are making their debut at a World Cup, scored their first-ever goal at the global tournament against Senegal when Ghana-born Mohammed Muntari netted for the Maroons. Following their defeat by the Teranga lions, Qatar’s coach Felix Sanchez said their World Cup showing should not be branded a failure. “I do think we played a good game. When you come here you need to know where you’re coming from [as a country]. If this is a failure and disappointment, that depends on expectations,” Sanchez told reporters on Saturday. “We are aware of how tough this competition is. We wanted to go far but we know we had limitations as a country,” Sanchez said.

The Orange, ranked eighth, are aiming to better their previous World Cup records. The Dutch were runner-ups in the 1974, 1978 and 2010 editions of the games. They have four points from their opening two games after beating Senegal 2-0 and drawing with Ecuador 1-1. The Orange were not convincing in either match, barely managing to hang on for a draw against the South Americans. To guarantee progress, the Dutch need at least a draw. They can still qualify even if they lose to Qatar and Ecuador beat Senegal.

While Qatar has already been eliminated after losing their first two games, the Netherlands needs points from this match to confirm their place in the knockout stages. Still, the hosts will not give in that easily. In any case, these are our top betting picks for this match:

We’re backing the Netherlands to be at their very best against the home nation and have backed van Gaal’s men to claim all 3pts and a clean sheet. Having the likes of van Dijk, de Ligt and de Vrij at the back will always give the Netherlands a platform to build upon and we believe they will keep the Qatar forwards at bay in the final round of group games. After all, the Netherlands only conceded one goal so far, while Qatar scored only once in the first two games. With that in mind, we don’t see Qatar being able to score against such a sturdy defensive line.

Memphis Depay entered this World Cup as the Netherlands’ top striker and most likely goalscorer. Despite that, we have yet to see Depay score since he failed to do so in the first two games at World Cup in Qatar. However, we can see that happening now since Qatar is the weakest team in the group, so we can see the Netherlands putting multiple goals past them. Also, Depay is closing in on van Persie’s goalscoring record for the Netherlands and we believe he will score at least one goal against Qatar on Tuesday.

While the Netherlands is basically already in the next stage, Qatar already got eliminated after losing to Senegal and Ecuador in the first two rounds. So, it’s clear who the favourite is in this match, Clearly, the bookies have no doubt about the winner of this game since the average odds on the Netherlands imply a win probability of 81.8%. On the other hand, Qatar has a win probability of just 5.6%. Lastly, the probability of a draw in this match is 13.5%.

In terms of goals, the average odds suggest that we should expect to see many of them. After all, the odds on over 2.5 total goals are 8/15 (1.53), which is the same as a 65.2% probability. Meanwhile, the average odds on under 2.5 total goals are 13/8 (2.63), which is a probability of 38.1%. Looking at some betting markets with higher odds, like the correct score, we can see that the most likely correct scores for Netherlands vs Qatar are 1-0, 2-0, and 3-0 to the Netherlands.

The Netherlands are one of the outside picks to win the World Cup this year but can they finally break the habit of a lifetime and go all the way? After the first two rounds of the tournament, Netherlands is very close to securing a place in the knockout stages and even a draw against Qatar is enough to put them there, but a win would likely secure them the top spot and an “easier” opponent in the Round of 16.

The Qatar quad has a good mix of youth and experience within it, even some of their younger players such as Salman and Al-Rawi have over 50-caps to their names at the age of just 24. But despite that, Qatar didn’t show that they belong at this stage since they lost their first two games in the group. In fact, they were pretty easily dispatched off in both of those games against Ecuador and Senegal and it’s hard to imagine them doing better against the Netherlands.
