ARG Vs NED Dream11, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: A third successive win sees Netherlands move above India in the points tally.
After losing both their opening encounters in the ongoing edition of the FIH Pro League, Netherlands finally managed to unlock their true potential come the second round of fixtures. With two wins against Spain in their kitty prior to today’s clash, Netherlands are making an advent into today’s imminent clash with immense momentum inculcated in their ranks.
The 4-2 win to Spain the last time around was vindictive of why Netherlands are held in such high statue in the hockey fraternity. It was an exemplary display of attacking hockey from them, one which ripped apart a dreary Spain defence which was unable to come to terms with Netherlands’ exuberant might.
Elsewhere, Argentina are coming into this first clash between the two sides having trounced Spain as well in their bygone fixture. The 5-1 win saw them overhaul a 4-3 defeat against Spain prior to that fixture, a much needed result which saw them accrue their first points in the marquee league.
With both the sides revered for being attacking units and floundering defensively in the ongoing edition of the league, we are going to be in for a goals galore contest. What favours Netherlands in this scenario is their attacking might, the brunt of which will come down heavily on Argentina today,

ARG Vs NED Dream11 Goal-Keeper
We’ll be moving in with Juan Vivaldi from Argentina as our shot stopper for this forthcoming encounter. Although he’s bound to concede today, he’s capable of pulling off some solid saves as well, ones which should see him ring him a slew of save points in this contest.
ARG Vs NED Dream11 Defenders
With this set to be an extradonaire goal scoring fixture, we have only indulged in the defenders who are going to torch their way up the park and pull off either a goal or assist in their kitty. And this reasoning lead us towards Mink van der Weerden from Netherlands with the player being the leading scorer in their side with 85 goals in his artillery.
He’s paired alongside Jip Janssen who has the 16 goals to his name with Joep de Mol coming in as well whilst from Argentina we are going to be indulging in the services of Leandro Tolini who was in imperious showing the last time he stepped out to face off against Spain.
ARG Vs NED Dream11 Midfielders
Netherlands’ captain, Billy Bakker becomes the first name to be picked up by us in this component of our Dream 11 side for the day. The player’s calibre to control his side’s play courtesy of his vibrant crossing and passing makes him a must have proposition for the affair.
Elsewhere, with Netherlands being lacklustre in defence, he have reposed faith in a duo from Argentina in this ambit. The mettle of Juan Lopez and Ignacio Ortiz will immensely perturb Netherlands who’ll find it tough to curb the two vibrant players.
ARG Vs NED Dream11 Forwards
Argentina’s top scorer with a staggering 80 goals to his name, Lucas Vila becomes our lone pick from the setup for this encounter. From Netherlands meanwhile we are moving in with the electric partnership of Bjorn Kellerman who raked up his 28th goal for his country against Spain the last time around and Mirco Pruijser who has 71 goals for his country.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Janssen’s goal the last time around and his dual nature as a player sees us make him our captain while Tolini is the vice-captain.
