Spain v Netherlands Line-Up Predictions

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Reigning World and European champions Spain start their tournament the same way their last World Cup campaign ended – against the Oranje.

Defence: There should be little doubt about Spain's back four. Juanfran had an impressive outing against El Salvador, but del Bosque would likely favour Cesar Azpilicueta's workrate.

Though yesterday's Group of Death final day had the potential to surprise like Group A's did on Saturday, it ultimately worked out according to form. Germany finished off the group with 3 victories, while Portugal showed how pathetic this edition of the Oranje were sending them to their third straight defeat, and back to a very unhappy Holland.

Today the group of death in EURO 2012 killed two: Denmark and Netherlands are going home. Germany and Portugal are off to the quarter-finals.

The Danish go home having shown a good fight. The Dutch not so much.

Portugal v. Netherlands was an exciting match. The Oranje started strong, scoring the first goal with Van der Vaart 10 minutes in, but could not keep up with the Portuguese speed (or their own?

For the second time in a row: it's D-day for Oranje. But this time, they REALLY need to win this match. Last Wednesday the high hopes they had didn't result in a victory. After a good start for the Dutch NT they couldn't finish it and the German team won with 1-2. Today that result won't be enough.

After last night's match it is painfully clear that this Oranje-team is on it's way out... With that I don't mean out of the tournament we still have a chance to reach the quarter finals but this team is just so over the hill. The World Cup magic from two years ago is gone, and without that magic Oranje are walking around the pitch like a couple of lost boys in the Big city.

Ruthless Germany looking ominous in early Euro 2012 - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

Wednesday night served up two exciting and enthralling Euro 2012 fixtures, with the ‘group of death' starting to take shape. Portugal made it hard for themselves in beating Denmark but got there with a late goal, whilst early favourites Germany continued their winning streak by all-but damning Netherlands to a competition exit.

Where is the Oranje?

So why is it that the Oranje has a solid squad with only top football talent and skill, yet could not manage to not shake when facing Germany?

I do not have the answer. Maybe you do?

The Dutch faced the Germans today for their second group match in EURO 2012 needing a victory after losing 1-0 to Denmark -and, for the initial 50 minutes seemed like a child who was too shy to join the rest of the kids in play-time.

It's a history that on the pitch goes back to the famous 1974 match in Munich, which resulted in (then West) Germany's first second World Cup title, via a loss that still looms large in the Dutch national memory.

The Netherlands' quest to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Denmark in their Euro 2012 opener won't cost manager Bert van Marwijk his job, no matter how it unfolds.

Van Marwijk has been given a vote of confidence by the Dutch FA entering Wednesday's massive match against Germany, one that could see the Oranje -- the 2010 FIFA World Cup runners-up and one of the favorites to win Euro 2012 -- get eliminated from the competition.

It's D-day for Oranje. This is THE match, not only because of the disappointing start but also because they are playing rivals Germany tonight. After the disappointing loss last Saturday (Denmark beat them by 1-0) the Dutch guys have to be at their best behavior today. It will take a lot of effort, skills and luck to beat Germany tonight.

Oh boy, was I wrong yesterday, predicting scoring wouldn't be a problem for Oranje... Ahead of this tournament all the Dutch people focused on the problems with our back four. The defensive troubles made headlines in all the papers and was a returning subject on all the sports programmes. With all this in mind, you can image the Dutch are pretty confused after the 0-1 loss against Denmark.

Games in the Group of Death tend to be cagey affairs as teams cancel each other out, especially in the first round of fixtures where no one wants to lose. Today was no different as Denmark upset the Dutch while Germany eked out a win over Portugal with a solitary goal each.

Robin van Persie started for the Oranje amidst some chatter that Huntelaar might get the nod.

To paraphrase cutting-edge pop trio Bros, this shock result has put the car among the pigeons. The Netherlands dominated the game in terms of possession and indeed shots on goal, but just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net.

That scenario is  something that Robin Van Persie will be well used to with Arsenal, with the striker failing to make the most of a number of chances.

Bundesliga, Schalke 04 vs Borussia Dortmund (9:30amET; GolTV): The Ruhr derby or, in the German, the Revierderby is the biggest rivalry in Germany.
