Why Qatar is a good play versus Netherlands

The Qataris have nothing to lose. Qatar earned their berth to the 2022 World Cup because they won hosting duties. Leading up to the tournament, Qatar had played great, beating teams that didn’t qualify like nobody’s business.

But in the first match versus Ecuador, it was apparent that Qatar wasn’t on the level of most teams at the World Cup. The Ecuadorians blasted Qatar. Then after Senegal’s domination, it was very apparent that Qatar didn’t belong.

However, Qatar will go all out on Tuesday. The Qataris shouldn’t be good enough to beat the Netherlands, but they could keep the score closer than the handicap spread.

Why Netherlands is a good play versus Qatar

The Netherlands know they let a win slip from their grasps. The Dutch were up by a goal over CONMENBOL squad Ecuador.

But because they scored so early, at the 6th minute, the Netherlands went into a shell. Ecuador made the Dutch pay shortly after the start of the second half when Enner Valencia knocked in the equalizer at minute 49.

On Tuesday, the Netherlands will be aggressive from the outset and they’ll continue to be aggressive until the final whistle. The reason? If the Netherlands falters, there’s a chance that both Senegal and Ecuador leapfrog the Dutch and lock down spots in the knockout stage.

Final Betting Analysis: Qatar vs Netherlands

Ecuador, Senegal, and the Netherlands are quality teams, which is why Qatar was the first host nation to pack their bags before the end of the group stage. The Qataris got a bad draw. That’s all there is to it.

Things won’t get more positive for Qatar on Tuesday. Although they blew a 1-0 lead over Ecuador, the Netherlands remains one of the best teams at this year’s World Cup.

Memphis Depay and his mates, especially Cody Gakpo, will ensure Qatar feels pressure from the outset. Then once the Netherlands grabs a lead, the Dutch will keep ratcheting up the pressure until they have at least a 2-goal lead. 

If Qatar is overlay aggressive, the Netherlands will counter for a 3-goal victory. The Dutch lock down a knockout stage berth with a blowout win against Qatar.  

World Cup Pick: Netherlands -1.5
