Netherlands vs Slovakia match prediction

Slovakia showed against Italy what they are capable of and they have the cattle to test the Dutch in this game and it’s hard to believe that a team that beat Italy in its last match by two goals would be showing $8 to win its next match.

Having said that, the Netherlands are a classy outfit who cruised through the group stage and will be up to the Slovakian challenge.

The Dutch have plenty of scoring options and should win this game all things being equal.
