Euro 2024 - Romania v Netherlands Betting Preview

"The Best Price Play of the Tournament" says our man, Alastair Ross, who predicts more Oranje Squash than Oranje Juice.

Preview of Romania v Netherlands

One of these sides went unbeaten in a qualifying group that contained Switzerland, conceding just five goals in 10 fixtures and won their group here ahead of Belgium and Sloavkia. The other racked up just 4 points in a group containing Austria and France and are here as one of the best-placed third-place sides. The first is Romania, the second is the Dutch.

Who would trust the Dutch at 4/9 on this sort of form? Not me. So far in this first knockout round it’s been the case of the underdogs NEARLY upsetting the apple cart, but the likes of Denmark and Slovakia can feel hard done by to not qualify at a big price against Germany and England. And I know England aren’t playing well, but they’re better than the Dutch at this tournament. And frankly, Romania are better than the Dutch too right now.

VBet have Romania at 38/5 on the 90 minute market, which is ludicrous. It’s the best price play so far at this tournament – and yes they’ve conceded 3 goals at this tournament, but their defensive record is impressive. Can they shut Netherlands out if they take the lead? It sounds a tall order, but BetVictor’s 13/1 on Romania win to nil is too big to pass up. There are smaller interesting prices on less risky markets too, like 3/1 to win either half.

The Netherlands have lost each of their last three knockout stage matches in the European Championship. They way they’ve performed at this tournament, they deserve to lose a 4th. Romania are 11/2 Draw No Bet with BoyleSport for the brave. For the less brace, StarSports are 2/1 that Romania don’t lose in 90 minutes.
