Turkey vs Netherlands Betting Tips

Teams Status

Turkey is the 32nd placed side in the world football ranking. In the recently concluded UEFA Nations League, they finished at the bottom of Group 3 of League B with just six points under their belt. They had played six matches and won just one match, drew three and lost two matches. Their group had Hungary, Russia and Serbia. They were on level terms with Serbia but behind them on goal difference as Turkey had scored just six goals and conceded eight goals. Whereas Serbia had a positive goal difference. Kenan Karaman was the team’s leading goal scorer with just two goals to his name and also had one assist under his belt. Their talented midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu also had a goal and an assist to his name. Only their center-back Merih Demiral is out with a thigh injury and will miss the qualifier clash against the Netherlands. Turkey would want to change their fortunes as they failed to qualify for the World Cup last time around.

The 2010 World Cup runners-up, the Netherlands on the other hand are currently in the 14th position of the world ranking. They finished in the second position of a slightly tougher group than Turkey consisting of Italy, Poland and Bosnia & Herzegovina. They had won three, drew two and lost just one match, earning 11 points in the process. They were just one point behind the group leader Italy. In the six matches that they played, they scored seven goals and conceded just four goals. The Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum was the team’s leading scorer in that tournament with three goals to his name. Memphis Depay also chipped in with two goals and one assist. Steven Berghuis and Denzel Dumfries were the team’s best creators with two assists each. Stefan de Vrij and Virgil van Dijk could miss the Turkey clash due to injuries. Even the Netherlands failed to make it to the 2020 World Cup just by goal difference.

Tipster’s Angel

This is expected to be a low-scoring thriller, but goals are expected from both ends as both teams have a slightly weaker defensive line. The Netherlands are having an edge over Turkey by considering the recent form.

Tip: Both Teams To Score @ 1.75

The last head-to-head match was played way back in 2015, both teams were entirely different back then. So, it would be unfair to consider the head-to-head record. Both teams scored in five of the last six matches that Turkey has played in all competitions. In the last five matches that the Netherlands have played, both teams scored in four of those matches. Both teams scored in the last three home matches that Turkey has played. Three of the last five away matches that the Netherlands have played had both teams scoring. Apart from that, Turkey and the Netherlands are without a clean sheet in their last six and four matches respectively. So, it is more likely that both teams will find the back of the net at 1.75 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Tip: The Netherlands To Win @ 1.72

In the last ten matches, Turkey has won just two matches, lost two matches and the remaining six matches ended in a draw. In the last ten matches that the Netherlands have played, they have four wins, two losses and three draws. Turkey have just one win in their last five matches, which was against a ten men Russian side. The Netherlands on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last five away matches with two wins and three draws. Apart from that, the Netherlands are coming into this fixture with two back-to-back wins over Bosnia & Herzegovina and Poland. While Turkey are coming into this fixture with a 2-0 loss to Hungary. So, it is more likely that the Netherlands will emerge victorious at 1.72 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.


With both teams missing out on the qualifications for the World Cup 2020, they will be eager to start this campaign with a win here. The Netherlands were heartbroken after the last qualifiers as they were knocked out by Sweden just by goal difference. They are more likely to come out on top against a struggling Turkish side.
