World Cup

2012-10-16 - Romania v Netherlands

A Sports Betting Preview by Lamps

Romania v Netherlands
Football : Internationals : World Cup
Tuesday 16th October - Kickoff 7:00pm



Romania


The Romanian side is the surprise package in this group having won all 3 of their games so far. Piţurcăís side have 9 points along with their opponents on Tuesday the Netherlands. If the hosts can hold the Netherlands in the Arena Natională (Bucharest) then it sets them up nicely as they approach the half way stage of qualifying.

Romania has beaten Estonia (0-2), Andorra (4-0) and most impressively Turkey (0-1). The win over the Turks in Istanbul is massive and we may be asking too much for them to repeat that performance against the strongest side in the group Holland.

When at home Romania have won just once in 3 in competitive games. That win was over Andorra above, in the 2 previous going back to the Euro campaign France (0-0) and Belarus (2-2) drew with the hosts.

The draw with France is significant as it proves Romania can mix it with the best and going back a few years in 2007 this side beat Holland 1-0 at home when attempting to qualify for Euro 2008.

Romania is 8 games unbeaten now in competitive home games with Serbia the last team to win here in 2009. The opposition hasnít been great over this run with France, Austria, Faroe Islands, Albania, Luxembourg, Bosnia and Belarus the visitors.

Netherlands


The Dutch always ďcoastĒ through qualifying only to often let us punters down in the finals (Euro 2012 a perfect example). So far its 3 from 3 and they lead Romania only by goal difference but that can all change on Tuesday.

Van Gaalís side have recorded victories over Turkey (2-0), Hungary (1-4) and Andorra (3-0). Having played and beaten 2 of the 3 rivals for this group a win over Romania is huge as they look to secure top spot as soon as possible.

The away form is good with just 1 loss in the last 6 competitive games. That loss came at Sweden when qualification was already secured so Iím not concerned by this result. The Dutch have won at San Marino (0-5), Moldova (0-1), Hungary (0-4), Finland (0-2) and last time on the road at Hungary again (1-4).

Strangely the side has a knack of winning to nil on their travels. Ok these sides above are very poor but just 1 against in the 3 this campaign canít be ignored either. Defensively this side was a shambles in the summer but letís face it Romania are no Germany, Portugal or Denmark.

Betting Verdict


The Dutch are favourites to win in Romania at odds of around 1.60-1.70, which isnít great. Interestingly Romania won their last encounter on Romanian soil beating the Dutch 1-0 in 2007 as mentioned above. However, the Dutch won here in 2005 (0-2) but both games ended unders and we could see another tight game midweek.

Romanians have impressed me but to win in Turkey travel back to Romania and then face the best side in the group is perhaps too much. The Netherlands had an easy game on Friday and will be the fresher of the 2 sides and obviously have the better side regardless.

Iím going to back second half with the most goals. I think Romania will look to keep this tight early on and contain the visitors. In all 3 of Romaniaís games the first goal has come relatively late with the earliest on the 29th minute but this was against Andorra.

The Dutch games have seen early goals but 2 have been at home and their away game was at Hungary who got their game plan completely wrong against the Dutch and were severely punished.

With potential tired legs in the home side late on, Van Persie and co of whom were rested on Friday can exploit that and I see at least 2 second half goals. At odds against I like this play and can honestly see a this being 0-0 or 0-1 come HT which gives us a great chance of hitting in the second half.

Good Luck
