Our match prediction:
Both Netherlands and Greece are coming off from an underwhelming seasons which saw them fail to secure their places at the European Championship finals in France. Dutch football team is preparing for a new beginning with a much-changed squad and an expected addition on the bench. Ruud Gullit was supposed to assist manager Danny Blind with coaching the national team, but his proposed appointment ended in a split after the legendary footballer trades words with Dutch football association over his job demands. Experienced tactician Dick Advocaat is expected to return after a short spell at Fenerbahce. Greece travel to Nertherlands looking to spark a new beginning and build up on their 2-1 win over Australia, which was their first on the road victory in last 15 away games in all competitions. Greek national team will be a no match to individually more quality Netherlands side, who are predicted to record a morale- boosting win ahead of the beginning of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
