Netherlands vs Iceland Match Preview & Prediction

  • Date and Time: June 10, 2024, 19:45
  • Venue: De Kuip

The Netherlands enjoy the home advantage at De Kuip on Monday evening in their last friendly match before heading to Germany for the UEFA European Championship 2024.

Iceland enters the game as the underdogs but is determined to pull off a shock win. Will they achieve the desired result and silence the crowd?

Netherlands vs Iceland Team Overview


Monday’s game against Iceland will be the Netherlands’ second outing in four days following Thursday evening’s friendly against Canada (4-0). The Dutch are busy putting the finishing touches to their squad before boarding a plane to Germany, where they are one of the outsiders to win the competition and become champions of Europe.

The Netherlands lost a recent friendly to Germany in March when they were beaten by the odd goal in three. Veerman scored inside four minutes to give the Dutch a lead, but they were unable to protect that advantage. Strikes from Mittelstadt and Füllkrug swung the game in Gemany’s favour, with the winner scored inside the final five minutes. The Netherlands must learn from that result and ensure they’re focused until the final whistle. Better is expected on Monday.


Iceland enjoyed a three-game winning streak before running into Ukraine in March. The Icelandic side lost 2-1 against Ukraine in the European Championship, with the goals scored by Tsyhanankov and Mudryk. Gudmundsson fired his team into an early lead, scoring inside 30 minutes, but Iceland conceded twice in the second half when snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. They face another tough test on Monday.

Iceland will take more heart from that three-game winning streak. They showed their strength to beat Guatemala 1-0 on the road in a friendly, then scored a 2-0 win over Honduras and a stunning 4-1 European Championship win over Israel. Iceland has confidence in the camp and possesses the organisation to pose their host problems. Iceland has nothing to lose here.

Netherlands vs Iceland prediction

The stats attached to this game make for interesting reading. If you thought the Netherlands would dominate the head-to-head charts you’d be wide of the mark. The H2H currently stands at two wins each in four previous meetings. The first game played in 2008 produced a 2-0 win for the Dutch before they won 2-1 in 2009.

Iceland had to wait until their third attempt to get off the mark and finally beat the Dutch. They won a European Championship game 2-0 in 2014 before doubling up with an impressive 1-0 when last in the Netherlands. The beaten team had Martins Indi sent off on 33 minutes before Sigurdsson scored the winner on 51 minutes from the penalty spot. Will we see repeat or revenge on Monday?

Netherlands vs Iceland Prediction, Betting Tip

  • Football Pick: Netherlands win to nil
  • Odds: 1.90 (22bet)

Iceland arrives in the Netherlands looking to complete the hattrick over their opponents following those impressive and memorable 2-0 and 1-0 wins in 2014 and 2015. Another victory would hurt their opponents, sending the Netherlands to Germany with a point to prove while heaping pressure on manager Ronald Koeman.

Sticking with the stats for our prediction, we note that one team has failed to find the net in three of the previous four meetings, and we’ll follow that trend. Wager on no in the both teams to score market or back the Netherlands to win to nil at decent odds.
