The Netherlands vs Spain Match Preview
Spain will host the Netherlands in the city of Valencia in their 3rd game of the FIH Pro League campaign. The Spaniards, who currently sit 5th in the table with 2 points, will try their best to make the home advantage count and move up in the table. The Netherlands, on the other hand, has made a bright start to the tournament as they sit 2nd with 5 points, only a point behind the early table toppers Great Britain.
Despite starting the campaign with a penalty shootout win against Belgium in the season opener, Spain ended on the wrong side of a 5-6 thriller against Great Britain to lose ground on the leading pack. The Netherlands had its own high-scoring thriller against Australia where they overcame the Aussies in a shootout after a 5-5 draw.
The Oranje have the top spot in their sights and a win over Spain could just do that for them.
