Netherlands v Czech Republic First Goalscorer Betting Tips
Get an added edge on your Netherlands v Czech Rep goalscorer bets for Tuesday’s Euro 2016 qualifier with the football betting offers at William Hill.
Netherlands are on the verge of failing to qualify for a major tournament for the first time since missing out on the 2002 World Cup, with their Euro 2016 destiny now out of their own hands. Oranje beat Kazakhstan 2-1 on Saturday night, thanks to goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Wesley Sneijder either side of half-time, but Turkey also defeated the Czech Republic in Prague and can clinch a play-off spot at the expense of the Dutch, if they avoid defeat to Iceland in their final Group A Game.
Czech Republic head to the Amsterdam Arena with their passage to the Euro 2016 Finals already assured and can still qualify as group winners after Iceland were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Latvia. Pavel Vrba’s side got thier campaign underway with a 2-1 victory over Netherlands in Prague last September and will be hoping to emulate that success on Tuesday night.
The match will be shown live at 19:45 (BST) on Sky Sports 5 and should be a popular attraction for punters. With so much riding on the game for the hosts, it’s no surprise that Netherlands have been installed as favourites, though given their below-par performances so far, it could be wise to swerve the odds-on price and play the First Goalscorer market instead.
Goalscorer Second Chance
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar leads the scoring charts for Netherlands with 4 goals in Group A, though has not scored in three outings and may lose his place to Robin van Persie. Should he start the game, then Huntelaar remains the most solid option given his overall record, but there may be more value in the Dutch midfield.
Memphis Depay is deadly on free-kicks, while Newcastle United’s Georginio Wijnaldum has been among the goals for club and country of late and Wesley Sneijder likes to have a pop at goal whenever the opportunity arises
The visitors have been heavily reliant on the goals of Bo?ek Do?kal and the first of his 4 in Euro 2016 qualifying came against Netherlands, while the other scorer Václav Pila? doubled his tally with a last-minute equaliser against Latvia.
Slavia Prague striker Milan Škoda has 2 goals so far and would rate as the main danger man for Czech Republic if starting the game, though had to settle for a spot on the bench against Turkey with veteran striker David Lafata preferred.
