Netherlands vs Spain Preview


On paper, Spain should win. Spain’s midfield control and in-form striker should be able to roll through the Netherlands aging backline.

The Netherlands have more firepower with their three star strikers, but they won’t be able to score enough goals to out-shine their defensive weaknesses.

But with an aging midfield, and Diego Costa with a suspect hamstring, Spain could be put behind early, as was Brazil. You can’t ever count out Van Persie and Robben – they can score from anywhere and punish you for any mistakes.

In the end, I think both back lines will give up goals to counter-attacks and sheer brilliance.

Prediction: 2-2

    Tie. 2-2. If anyone is going to take it, it will be the Dutch. Hard to say, as much as I love Xabi Alonso.

    That was my thought too, 2-2
