Netherlands vs Qatar Match Info

2022 FIFA World Cup — Group Stage
Netherlands (1-1-0) vs. Qatar (0-0-2)
Date: Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022
Time: 10 a.m. ET
Venue: Al Bayt Stadium — Al Khor, Qatar

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing with more action slated for Tuesday, Nov. 29. One of the more interesting matches of the day is a Group A meeting between Netherlands and Qatar.

Netherlands was given a run for its money against Ecuador on Friday, ultimately resulting in a 1-1 draw. Meanwhile, Qatar has had zero luck as the host country, losing its second of as many outings in the form of a 2-0 defeat to Senegal.

Can Netherlands win to help lock down the top spot in Group A? Or will Qatar play spoiler by ending its tournament run on a high note?

Netherlands vs Qatar Prediction & Pick

After how bad Qatar has looked so far, there's little reason to believe that it can upset Netherlands. Qatar's lack of experience on the sport's biggest stage has been its downfall, leading to the host country being outscored 5-1 by the likes of Ecuador and Senegal.

On the other hand, Netherlands has more riding on this match. A victory keeps the Dutch in contention to win Group A and that sort of motivation can take a team to another level. With Netherlands also having won four straight matches before drawing with Ecuador, I see the former getting back on track Tuesday.

Final Score Prediction: Netherlands: 3 | Qatar: 0

Netherlands vs Qatar Best Bet

With how lopsided this matchup is, I can see Netherlands covering the 2-goal spread. Qatar just isn't good, having already allowed 19 shots (eight on goal) in the tournament. Netherlands is good enough to capitalize on those opportunities, especially after scoring two-plus goals in three of its last five contests.

Expect a dominant offensive performance from the Dutch to finish off their group stage schedule.

Bet: Netherlands -2 (+145)
