On Friday, December 9, the Lusail Ikonik stadium will host a duel between the Netherlands and Argentina in the quarterfinals of the World Cup.

Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Netherlands vs Argentina


The Dutch national team has not yet lost at the World Cup in Qatar and looked very solid in every match played. The Dutch may not have shown spectacular football in all games, but they confidently took points in the group stage of the tournament, and then coped with the USA without any problems in the 1/8 finals of the tournament.

In the future match, the team of Louis Van Gaal will play against a top opponent for the first time and in such a match the Netherlands will need to make much more efforts for a winning result. The Oranges at this World Cup are distinguished by their discipline and reliable defensive play, so even playing second number against Argentina, they can easily win and go to the semi-finals.


The Argentine national team in the last match beat Australia at the 1/8 final stage of the tournament not without problems, because the last minutes of that meeting were restless for albiceleste. However, the wards of Lionel Scaloni are improving from match to match and clearly look better than in the lost match of the first round against Saudi Arabia.

Lionel Messi and the company expect to reach the final match of the World Cup and win the main trophy, so the Argentine team is definitely not going to stop there. Argentina have a difficult and tough opponent ahead of them, but the team's performance and the Messi factor could play a key role in the success of the South Americans in such a game.
