The Netherlands aim to clinch a finals slot when they host Poland in Group 1 of League A in the Nations League. Predictions and odds for this Netherlands versus Poland match to be played at Stadion Slaski Chorzow are available.
The Dutch kept their final four hope alive after upending visiting Bosnia-Herzegovina 3-1 in their last game.
Frank de Boer got his first win as Netherlands boss as two goals from midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum led them to a 3-1 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina. Forward Memphis Depay netted the other goal of the Dutch squad.
A friendly defeat to Mexico and three consecutive draws, most recently against Spain on Friday, marked an inauspicious start for Ronald Koeman's successor with Oranje.
The Dutch are second in the group with eight points, one below Italy and a point over third placers Poland, with last placers Bosnia Herzegovina at fourth with two points and headed to relegation.
Poland lost at Italy 2-0 but are still in contention and must win over the Dutch and pray that Italy lose to Bosnia-Herzegovina o clinch top spot in the group.TOURNAMENT FORMAT
Under the format, in the top league (League A), the winners of the four groups go on to play in the finals, with two semi-finals, one third and fourth place decider, and one final to decide which team becomes the champion.
Starting in 2020-21, each group winner (there are four groups in Leagues A, B, and C, and two groups in League D) except for League A, who will go on to play in the finals, is automatically promoted to the next higher league for the next tournament.
Each team placing last in its group in the Leagues A and B is automatically relegated to the next lower league; as League C has four groups while League D has only two, the two League C teams that are to be relegated are determined by play-outs beginning in March 2022.
