Netherlands vs Qatar: Final Score Prediction
The Flying Dutchmen are the overwhelming favorites here. There is a huge gap both in the rankings and the overall skill level between these two teams, and the Oranje are superior to the Maroon in every compartment of play. In addition, the Netherlands tend to make deep runs on the world stage. Yes, Qatar is playing in front of their home crowd, but this advantage is no match against the Dutch firepower.
