Last time: The last few meetings between these two have been high-scoring affairs, with the Netherlands winning 4-2 last most recently, after conceding an early goal in Hamburg.

Netherlands vs. Germany Predictions and Preview

Both Hansi Flick and Louis van Gaal will see how their squads get through the friendlies at the weekend before making a final decision about starting elevens. But with such a rivalry between these two nations, there is sure to be two strong teams on display in Amsterdam.

For Germany, this will be a good test after playing Israel on Saturday – especially with the prospect of facing Italy and England in the Nations League in June. There might not be quite as many chances, but Flick will be hoping that his goal-scoring youngsters can carry on their prolific form on Tuesday. Before this international break, Germany had managed a staggering 31 in just seven games.

The Netherlands will see this game as a perfect opportunity to test their defensive unit after a tough game against Denmark at the weekend. The Oranje have been able to keep out the likes of Norway in recent times but Germany will be a different proposition.

Netherlands vs. Germany full time result odds

This is sure to be a close game with all match result options priced in a similar way. With the chance for both head coaches to experiment with their squads, there may not be quite the same levels of understanding between the players – and that could make for a very interesting watch. With neither team wanting to lose to the ‘old enemy’, the draw at 11/5 might be the best option here.

Netherlands vs. Germany both teams to score odds

The Netherlands and Germany shared two goal-filled encounters during qualification for Euro 2020 and there is a good chance that we may see a repeat performance on Tuesday. Both teams won away from home during that campaign with Germany winning 3-2 in Amsterdam before the 4-2 victory for the Dutch. They have both been scoring a lot of goals recently and, even with the defenders on show, both teams to score at 4/6 looks to be the way to go.

Netherlands vs. Germany correct score odds

Neutrals watching this game would love to see something like the Euro 2020 qualifiers, where there was little time to take a breath between goals. It might not be quite as frenetic at the Johan Cruijff Arena this week, but a relatively high scoring draw might be on the cards. There will be some attractive odds the more goals that are scored – so a correct score of 2-2 should offer some good value.

Netherlands vs. Germany first goalscorer odds

It is not always easy predicting who will score the first goal in international friendlies. Head coaches tend to try out new things and pick unfamiliar players. But with local pride on the line, we should see some string starting elevens on show here. The Dutch will want to stamp their authority at home, so backing Memphis Depay to open the scoring might be a good idea.
