Uruguay vs Netherlands World Cup Preview

The Netherlands are hot favourites to brush aside Uruguay to reach the World Cup final for the first time since 1978. In the quarter final few gave the Netherlands any chance against Brazil especially as it was the Brazilians who took the lead. A superb 2nd half performance by the Dutch left the Brazilians looking extremely fragile as the Dutch piled on the pressure eventually winning the game.

There is no doubt that Uruguay simply don’t have the class of Brazil, plus they will miss suspended striker Luis Suarez. They still though are very capable of pulling off a surprise win with dangerous attackers such as Diego Forlan. The Dutch need to remain focused and not treat Uruguay as a soft touch. There is no doubt that with the likes of Sneijder, Robben and van Persie the Dutch are capable of winning the World Cup sweeping aside Uruguay on the way.

For me the Dutch are simply too strong and I would think that they will be Uruguay by at least 2 clear goals. The Dutch will be strong favourites so I would opt to back the Dutch to win either 2-0 or 3-1.
