Netherlands enter Euro 2012 as one of the tournament favourites, and will look to record a morale-boosting victory over Northern Ireland in a friendly on Saturday.

Netherlands have been backed by many to finally top the pile this year, and the attacking quality on show justifies this prediction. With the likes of Robin van Persie, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben and Rafael van der Vaart at their disposal, Holland will take some stopping this summer, and will certainly be too much for Northern Ireland. When it comes to Euro 2012 however, the side’s defence will need to hold firm against the threat of Germany, Portugal and Denmark in Group B, and Bert van Marwijk will hope for a clean sheet this weekend. Bet Victor have Netherlands as overwhelming favourites at odds of 1/7.

Northern Ireland will be up against it from the first whistle in this game, and anything other than a heavy defeat will be a good result for the Windsor Park side. Michael O’Neill’s side were a long way from qualifying for Euro 2012, and will look to regroup ahead of World Cup warm-ups. Aaron Hughes, Jonny Evans and David Healy are the nation’s star men. Bet at Bet Victor to get odds of 16/1 for an away win.

This should be a walk in the park for Netherlands, and the hosts will look to record a convincing victory. My international friendly football betting tip is a 3-0 win to Netherlands.
