              Netherlands vs Rep of Ireland Prediction, Tips & Stats

              The Netherlands will be aiming to rack up a few goals when they meet with the Republic of Ireland in Amsterdam on Saturday with qualification all but secured for the Dutch in what has been another horrible campaign for the Irish.

              The Netherlands are sitting six points behind France and are unlikely to catch them in first after suffering a loss to them in the last international break. However, they are on 12 points alongside Greece in third but have a game extra to play over the Greeks and will be able to move themselves to three clear of them with a victory.

              This comes off the back of the Netherlands beating Greee in the last outing, but it did take a penalty from Virgil van Dijk in the 90th minute to secure all three points that day.

              As for Ireland, they lost their last outing to the Netherlands back in September, despite taking a lead through Adam Idah after four minutes from the penalty spot. Cody Gakpo would soon equalise with another penalty, while Wout Weghorst bagged a goal too.

              Ireland did manage to get a rare win in their group last time out with a 4-0 battering over Gibraltar, although they were also beaten by Greece just before this. Ireland now sit just above Gibraltar in last place, and in reality, qualification to the next round has never really been on the cards for the nation.

              With Jasper Cillessen not making the squad and recent injuries, there are just 16 caps amongst the three Dutch keepers in this squad, but Feyenoord's Justin Bijlow should get the start here. Virgil van Dijk will captain the side from the back alongside Denzel Dumfires, while Daley Blind continues to get caps and is looking at his 104th here. Stefan de Vrij will also feature here. However, Tyrell Malacia and Jurrien Timber are missing in the full-back slots, while Matthijs de Ligt is also out here alongside Sven Botman and Nathan Ake. Frenkie de Jong is also out injured, while Georginio Wijnaldum hasn't made the squad alongside Ryan Gravebberch and Steven Berghuis. Steven Bergwijn and Brain Brobbey are also out injured alongside Memphis Depay - his 44 goals in 88 games will be a miss.

              James McClean has retired from international duty with 102 caps and 11 goals and won't feature here. John Egan is also not with the squad either, alongside Callum O'Dowda and Enda Stevens. Seamus Coleman remains injured too.
