On Saturday afternoon, the Netherlands and the USA National teams face each other in the opening round of 16 stage matches at the 2022 World Cup.

Both sides have occasionally looked fairly unconvincing in Qatar, but they safely advanced to the knockout rounds, and neither has suffered a loss thus far in the championship.

The Netherlands, who were generally predicted to top Group A and proceed to the round of 16, did not let their fans down, earning seven points from their three games despite a minor slip-up against Ecuador.

With his well-taken opening goal against Qatar on Tuesday, rising star Cody Gakpo became just the fourth Dutch player to score in three straight World Cup games. Even though the Netherlands have only attempted eight attempts on goal during this World Cup, Van Gaal has allayed any concerns as the 2010 World Cup finalists are set to go to the round of 16 in the World Cup again.

The Netherlands, who won Group A, continued their remarkable run of making it to the round of 16 in every World Cup they have participated in since 1934. In the previous 32 years, they have only been knocked out of the round of 16 twice: once in 1990 and once in 2006.

The Netherlands have gone an impressive 18 games without losing in all competitions since being eliminated from Euro 2020 at the hands of the Czech Republic, and Van Gaal is now aiming to go for 11 World Cup matches without losing.

When Pulisic sprinted into space and scored in the first half, Gregg Berhalter's team was able to move ahead of Iran and into second place behind England, setting up a mouthwatering matchup with the Dutch in the round of 16.

The United States also advanced to the knockout rounds in the previous two world cup finals they appeared in, before being eliminated. In fact, the USA hasn't defeated a UEFA squad at a World Cup since 2002; instead, they've lost on five occasions. Additionally, the USA's three previous World Cup knockout matches against European nations have all resulted in losses.

The Stars and Stripes' victory over Iran was also their first triumph in six games played in all competitions; prior to that, they had fallen to the Netherlands in four straight friendly matches before beating the Dutch 4-3 in 2015.

Bet on Netherlands vs USA with Cionplay

Expected Netherlands National Team starting XI vs the USA(3-4-1-2) : Noppert; Timber, Van Dijk, Ake; Dumfries, De Roon, F. De Jong, Blind; Klaassen; Gakpo, Depay.

Expected USA starting 11 vs the Netherlands(4-3-3) : Turner; Dest, Carter-Vickers, Ream, Robinson; McKennie, Adams, Musah; Weah, Sargent, Pulisic.

The Dutch are clear favorites to win this due to their superior record and ineffectiveness of the USA versus European teams at odds of 1.9 at Bet365. The USA are the outsiders to win this match at odds of 4.40 at Coinplay.

A draw, though unlikely to happen, is placed at odds of 3.5.

The odds on the Dutch to score first since they have massive talent at the front are the best odds to place on at 1.7.

Despite having fewer shots on target than other teams, the Netherlands are still a very tough opponent thanks to the efficiency of Gakpo and Memphis Depay.

We can only imagine the Netherlands moving on to the quarterfinals thanks to their strong defensive record and the possibility that the USA may not have fully fit players like McKennie and Pulisic. We predict a 2-0 Netherlands Win.
