Women’s Euros Odds: Dutch delight?

New feature .... our columnists are on the case

If we feel there’s something of note happening during the day – ‘we’ being the Betfred columnists at HQ – then henceforth we’ll be flagging it up accordingly.

Reckon you can never have enough opinions and advice from which to make sound judgements of your own, so we’ll be chipping in on a fairly regular basis in a bid to add to the fun for us, and far more importantly, you.

If you were with us yesterday, you’d know that our tip of Germany to beat Spain at the Women’s European Championships came in, as the Germans won 2-0. I’ll do my best to keep the winning streak alive here.

We’re staying with the Women’s Euros, and taking a look more specifically at tonight’s heavyweight Group C clash between the Netherlands – the defending champions – and Portugal.

Both sides are looking for their first win of the tournament after the Netherlands drew 1-1 with Sweden in their opener, while Portugal fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Switzerland.

The sides last met competitively qualifying for Euro 2015, with the Dutch coming out on top in two games, 7-0 and 3-2. Vivianne Miedema, Holland’s all-time record goalscorer, scored a hat-trick in both of those games, but she’ll miss the game tonight due to testing positive for Covid-19.

Holland are big favourites for the match at 2/5, but that’s too skinny to take a punt on. With both teams having a shaky start to the tournament, I can see there being a few goals in this one, and despite Holland’s main goal threat missing the game, I think they’ll still have enough quality to get the win.

That’s why I’m going for the Netherlands to win and both teams to score at 21/10.
