  • Netherlands had to settle for a point from their clash with Ecuador but a win here will guarantee them safe passage into the knockout stages and it would be a huge shock if they failed to qualify from this point.
  • The Dutch came up against a solid outfit in the Ecuadorians but this is a much easier task against the pointless hosts and with competition for places hotting up, Louis van Gaal may opt to retain Jurrien Timber over Matthijs de Ligt with the latter just one booking away from a ban.


  • Qatar became the first team to be eliminated from the 2022 FIFA World Cup after their loss to Senegal in their second group game, confirming that they will be the worst performing hosts in the 92-year history of the tournament.
  • No other host nation has been eliminated after just two matches and now they will aim to avoid the ignominy of becoming the first hosts to crash out without securing a single point but they have few options to improve their side and it is unlikely that they will make too many changes in their quest to claim at least a point.



PREDICTED XI (3-4-1-2): Noppert; Timber, van Dijk, Ake; Dumfries, de Jong, Berghuis, Blind; Gakpo; Bergwijn, Depay




PREDICTED XI (5-3-2): Al Sheeb; Miguel, Al-Rawi, Khoukhi, A. Hassan, Ahmed; Al Haydos, Boudiaf, Hatem; Ali, Afif




  • This is the first-ever international match between Qatar and the Netherlands
  • The Netherlands have won each of their previous five World Cup matches against AFC nations
  • The Netherlands are unbeaten in their last 15 group stage matches at the FIFA World Cup (W11 D4)
  • The Netherlands have only ever lost two out of 32 group stage matches at the FIFA World Cup (this includes first and second group stage). The only teams to have defeated the Dutch in group matches are Scotland (1978) and Belgium (1994)
  • The Netherlands are unbeaten in their last 17 international matches (W12 D5), all since Louis van Gaal was appointed coach in August 2021
  • The Netherlands have only failed to score in one of their last 30 international matches
  • The Netherlands have never failed to qualify from a World Cup group in their ten previous attempts
  • The Netherlands have finished first in their group in a group stage at the World Cup on seven occasions from ten appearances in a group stage
  • Qatar are unbeaten in their last four international matches against European opposition (W2 D2)
  • Against Senegal, Qatar became the 75th different country to score a goal in FIFA World Cup history
  • Against Senegal. Mohammed Muntari became the first player to score for Qatar in the World Cup


Netherlands can secure top spot in Group A by defeating hosts Qatar and Ecuador fail to beat Senegal by a bigger margin. That should be a fairly straightforward task for the Dutch with Qatar yet to win a point in either of their two games to date. The hosts have set some unwanted records already and another could be on the cards here with the Dutch likely to be far too classy for them. Louis van Gaal’s side have plenty of improving to do if they are to go deep in this tournament but this game represents a great chance for them to build some attacking synergy and they should be able to run out comfortable victors in this one.
