Spain vs Netherlands: Predictions

The Netherlands have been impressive against weaker opponents this tournament. They managed a hard fought draw against an underwhelming USWNT. However, their performances cannot be overlooked.

Spain on the other hand has had a polarizing tournament. Thatbeing said one could argue that their loss against Japan was far more damaging to their reputation than what the Switzerland win managed to do to improve.

La Roja might just about be able to progress. However, it would be mighty close and would take until extra time or the penalty shootouts.

Draw @ 3.61 odds.

Spain to progress @ 1.47 odds.
