Netherlands vs Ivory Coast Prediction 4 June 2017

Tournament: International Friendly
Location: De Cuip Stadium
Match date: 04.06.2017 at 18:30

On June 4 2017 at 18:30 in the international friendly game at the pitch of the De Cuip Stadium the local Netherlands national team plays against Ivory Coast.

Netherlands obviously got worse in their last few years. They are no longer serious competitors for the leaders and the favorites as they used to be at the end of the XX century. They didn’t make it to the final of the Euros in 2016 and now after the first round of the group stage qualification campaign Netherlands only gained 7 points in their 5 matches played and they are 3 and 6 points below the second and the first place.

As for Ivory Coast, they were a bit unstable in their latest matches and yet they were of their usual level. They were among the finalists of the African Cup of Nations and they were considered to be one of the favorites of the competition. Yet they didn’t manage to make it to the play-offs of that finals. Yet, in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers the Elephants have already overcome two rounds and now they are the leaders of their qualification group.

The teams only met once in their history and in that game at the World Cup 2006 Netherlands won 2:1. There are a lot of young and potentially good players in the squad of Netherlands national team and yet they aren’t still the top quality footballers. Anyway, Netherlands need their young players to play more and the young Ajax footballers are going to try to make it to the squad of the national team in the official matches.
