Belgium vs Netherlands
The Belgian team deservedly won the bronze medals of the world championship in Russia. Since then, the team has played three matches, in which they have always won. In September, the wards of Roberto Martinez on the road defeated Icelanders (3:0) and Scots (4:0), and in the last round of the League of Nations, they hardly defeated the Swiss squad – 2:1. The Belgians in the attack were sharper and created more chances, and the most active was Romelu Lukaku, who struck 6 shots on goal and scored an assist. By the way, he also scored two goals against the Icelanders and now heads the Bombardier race in the League of Nations. Netherlands national team under Ronald Koeman is playing well, and in the last round of the League of Nations, she created a sensation, defeating the team of Germany - 3:0. In General, the success of the "orange" is fair, in the attack they looked more interesting, though less likely to hit the goal. In the end proved to be excellent Memphis Depay, on account of which the goal and effective transfer. Against the current world Champions of the French team also fought with dignity and up to 75 minutes kept the balance in the account, but still lost - 1:2.
Netherlands national team will not help Virgil van Dijk, which the team doctors decided to save. He scored a goal against the Germans. The Belgians suffered a serious injury in the game with Switzerland Thomas Vermaelen, in the next 6 weeks he will not go on the field.
Both teams have losses in the squad, but Vermalen's injury can have a much stronger impact on the game of the Belgians. In a friendly match, the home team players will try not to get hurt, so it is unlikely that they will give one hundred percent. The Dutch team is now at its peak, the victory over the Germans says a lot, so do not underestimate it.
