Starting on Friday at 21:45 we have an interesting match between the Netherlands and Poland that counts for the first stage of the Nations League – League A, group 1.
The match will be played in Amsterdam on Johan Cruijff Arena and will be led in the center by the Bulgarian G. Kabakov.
At the end of this advance we will recommend from the Betano betting offer a tip on the number of goals in the match.
Netherlands: Team form, news and statistics
The Netherlands reached the Nations League final in the 2018/2019 edition, when it was defeated by Portugal 0: 1.
“Mechanical Orange” also did very well in the preliminaries for the European Championship, where it ranked 2nd under Germany with 21 points (7/0/1).
Thus, it will evolve to Euro 2021, after surprisingly missing the final tournament in 2016, but also the World Cup in 2018.
The Netherlands approaches the Nations League with a new coach after Ronald Koeman took over Barcelona, at the helm of the national team being named interim second Dwight Lodeweges.
Matthijs de Ligt will be absent from Friday’s game due to shoulder surgery, while Daley Blind was also left at home after complaining of heart problems in the friendly Ajax – Herta a week ago. Davy Propper and Tonny Vilhena were not called up for the double with Poland and Italy.
Poland: Team form, news and statistics
Poland will also be present at the European Championship in 2021 after winning eight of the ten Group G matches of the preliminaries, finishing first with six points over Austria.
On the other hand, the Poles do not have very pleasant memories from the Nations League, they accumulating only two points in the group with Italy and Germany from the 2018/2019 edition.
The most important news is that the coach Jerzy Brzeczek decided not to summon Lewandowski for the double with the Netherlands and Bosnia-Herzegovina on the grounds that the Polish star needs a little rest after the busy season just ended.
Lewandowski has scored 55 goals in 47 games for the club team in the previous season, while for the Polish national team he has 61 goals in 112 matches.
Otherwise there are no other notable unavailability for this match.

Football Prediction of the Day Holland vs Poland
The Mechanical Orange was in the preliminaries for the European Championship a real goal-scoring machine, scoring 24 times in eight games. However, she also scored seven goals, so that seven of the eight games she played ended with over 2.5.
In the current context, we would not be surprised if the Netherlands scores at least twice on Friday, but we believe that Poland is also able to score at least once, even without the Lewandowski star.
Plus, the matches will have a slightly lower pressure than a game in the preliminaries, and that’s why we expect the teams to practice a slightly more open game.
The players come after long periods in which they have not played together in the national team, so mistakes can occur in the match.
Bet Tips: Over 2.5 goals
