          Netherlands vs Croatia Prediction, Tips & Stats

          The Nations League returns during the week with the Netherlands and Croatia set to clash in the backyard of the Dutch as Du Kuip plays hosts to Ronald Koeman's men in search of another final.

          This will be the second set of competitive games for the former Everton manager after the retirement of Louis van Gaal after the World Cup. Koeman guided his side to a 3-0 win over Gibraltar in the last match after a Nathan Ake brace from the back alongside a finish from Memphis Depay. The Atletico Madrid man scored his 44th goal for his country that day but now misses out due to injury, while Ake likely misses out after playing in the Champions League final last Saturday.

          Despite an easy win against Gibraltar, Koeman's first game in charge of his country came in a 4-0 loss to France in Paris. They have, however, already reached a Nations League final after beating England back in 2018 before a loss to Portugal in the final.
