Will the teams be playing for pride or points come the final round of matches in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group A?
Host nation Qatar will be hoping they still have a chance to qualify for the Round of 16 in their first ever World Cup appearance, but they come into this game on the back of twice already being the underdogs against Senegal and Ecuador.
As for the Netherlands, they are some pundits’ dark horses to go all the way to the final, and so gaining victory over a team ranked 41 places below them in FIFA rankings should be a formality… shouldn’t it?

Uncharted Territory for Qatar
Not only is this Qatar’s first ever chance to host a major international football tournament, but this will also be their maiden appearance as a competing team at the World Cup too – what a boost for the sport in the Middle East.
On the pitch, Felix Sanchez’s team has little reputation to speak of but are improving – they won the Asian Cup in 2019, beating South Korea and Japan along the way, and in 2021 they were invited to participate in the CONMEBOL Gold Cup where they lost out in the semi-finals to eventual champions USA.
So it’s been a breakthrough few years for Qatari football, and here’s a list of players that thrived in front of goal during that epic Gold Cup run:
As hosts, Qatar haven’t had to go through the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification process – they automatically booked their place at the tournament by hosting it. But that comes at the expense of playing against top-class opposition regularly, and their Qatar 2022 prep – playing friendlies against a host of European club sides – is less than ideal.
Dutch to Show Class in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group A?
If football was an easy game to predict, everyone would be able to bet on it and profit accordingly. But it’s a sport rife with shocks and upsets, and the Netherlands would add to that list if they were unable to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition via FIFA World Cup 2022 Group A.
On paper, they have better players than the other teams in this bracket – the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay make up a strong spine. In Louis van Gaal, they have a head coach whose pedigree simply cannot be questioned.
They blitzed their way through the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers, winning seven of their ten games and losing just one of them in a display of absolute dominance. Leading the way in front of goal were:
The Dutch also reached the UEFA Nations League final in 2018/19, and in the 2022/23 edition they have started by winning three of their four games, so this is a team for whom confidence is not in short supply even if they disappoint at the Euros.
Betting Tips and Odds on Netherlands vs Qatar in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group A
Of all the Qatar 2022 dates, this could prove to be the key one for the host nation.
They will go into this November 29 contest as the underdogs, but will at least have the comfort of knowing that the vast majority of the 60,000 Al Bayt Stadium will be on their side. But it seems as though vociferous support alone will not be enough to decide this Netherlands vs Qatar clash, given that the opposition have the class, pedigree and the form, having defeated some quality operators in the past few years.
You suspect the goal-happy Dutch will have little sympathy for their hosts here, and TV viewers in the UK will be able to watch the drama unfold via ITV.
