World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
Day 4 of the European Qualifiers for the World Cup hosts lots of games between very weak teams and strong ones.
We’re very eager to see where the surprises will take place if we’ll have any, but also think there are some games where an upset is officially off the cards – and Luxembourg vs. Netherlands is one of them.

Although the Dutch are far from the squad that always challenged for World Cup trophies just some years ago, they’re still a very good team.
Currently sitting on 4 points, they clearly need to win games in order to compete for second place. They’ve faced their main rivals, France (0-1) and Sweden (1-1), so they’re now looking at a series of easier games – at least in theory.
These games will be very good especially in terms of squad cohesion, since it’s clear that some of the players don’t know where they fit in the tactical plan.
Meanwhile, Luxembourg was impressive in all their games so far. 2 narrow defeats (3-4 against Bulgaria and 0-1 against Sweden) coupled with a 1-1 draw against Belarus have shown the world that they don’t want to sell themselves easily.
They will fight in each and every game, out of determination, since they clearly don’t have any larger objective, but it’s safe to say that the Dutch won’t have a very easy game.
Luxembourg vs Netherlands Betting Tips
In spite of this, we do recommend betting on a Dutch victory. Netherlands -2 is our choice of the day since it has good odds and you’ll get your money back if they win by only 3 goals.
Moreover, Netherlands over 2,5 or 3,5 goals is a good idea of a bet, since we’re sure we’ll see a few goals from the away side – and at least one of them will be scored by Vincent Janssen, a towering forward who is hard to stop by amateur defenders.
