class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>These sides played out a six-goal thriller when they met back in March and there should be plenty more goals when they face each other this week
Netherlands welcome Turkey to the Johan Cruyff Arena on Tuesday evening in what is a meeting of the top two sides in Group G of UEFA World Cup qualifying.
Senol Gunes’ team currently lead the standings, one point ahead of a Dutch outfit they beat 4-2 when they met in Istanbul in March.
With both Norway and Montenegro both still harbouring hopes of qualifying, Group G looks like being one of the competition’s most competitive, making Tuesday’s clash in Amsterdam even more important.
Netherlands vs Turkey latest odds
Turkey have won both most recent meetings between these sides and the visitors are offered at 15/2 (8.50) with bet365 to claim three points.
Netherlands for their part have only suffered two home defeats in World Cup qualifying this century, against Portugal in 2000 and France in 2016.
The Dutch have won 23 of their last 25 home games in this tournament and are priced at 1/3 (1.33) with the draw at 17/4 (5.25).

Both sides avoided picking up any major injuries during their respective weekend matches although both managers are likely to make changes for the game on Tuesday.
Virgil van Dijk looks set to come back into the heart of the Dutch defence, while Cengiz Under and Okay Yokuslu are both possibilities to freshen up the Turkish midfield.
Netherlands vs Turkey preview
Euro 2020 brought disappointment for both nations as Netherlands crashed out of the last 16 against Czech Republic, and Turkey lost all three of their group games.
The Turkish side certainly have defensive issues, letting in eight goals in three games at the European Championship, while elsewhere this year they have conceded three goals to Latvia, two goals to Montenegro and one goal to Azerbaijan.
The Dutch have plenty of firepower and will fancy their chances of scoring once more, yet Louis van Gaal’s men have also looked uninspiring at the back this year and in the last three months have conceded twice in games against Scotland, Ukraine, and Czech Republic.
This should be another high-scoring encounter and backing goals and both ends makes plenty of sense.
Netherlands vs Turkey tips & predictions
Both teams to score looks like a tempting option at 10/11 (1.91) while combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the price rise to 6/5 (2.20).
