NED vs TUR Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Netherlands vs Turkey World Cup Qualifiers Live Score September 8


NED vs TUR Dream11: Netherlands take on Turkey in what could be a massive clash for both sides in their campaign to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Those two now meet in what could prove to be a pivotal clash in Group G with just one point separating them at the halfway point. The Dutch are strong on home soil so they will be full of confidence for this tricky contest against their unbeaten opponents and while the hosts should be able to make it back-to-back wins, the visitors should be able to find the back of the net in defeat.

MID: Klaassen, Wijnaldum, Yazici, Under, Calhanoglu
FOR: Karaman, Depay

Likely Winner:

  • The Netherlands smashed Montenegro 4-0 last time out to keep pace with group leaders Turkey. The Oranje have picked up 10 points in qualifying, with their only defeat coming at the hands of Turkey.
  • A Burak Yilmaz-inspired performance saw Turkey land a 4-2 win over the Netherlands back in March. They’ll be keen to do the double over the Oranje and extend their lead at the top of the group.
  • Both sides will be aware that Norway can leapfrog the pair with a win over Gibraltar, but back under the stewardship of Louis van Gaal, the Dutch should have enough to end the international break top of Group G.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a Netherlands win in this clash is 1.35.
