ARG vs NED Dream11 Prediction: Pivotal top 4 deciding clash sees two sides separated by just the 2 points take on each other.
We are down to the last few matches in the FIH Pro League and the competition and run in for a spot in the semi-finals couldn’t have gotten any more arduous. And in Netherlands vs Argentina, we have perhaps a no finer match to emphasise the extreme tight nature of the league at the moment, with teams persistently snapping at each other’s heels to nail down their position in the top 4.
For both our sides today, the consequences of a win are massive from this match. While a win for Netherlands would seal their position in the top 4, taking them all the way to 25 points and out of sight of both Argentina and Great Britain, a defeat is something they can’t afford.
With just two points separating them and Argentina in third and fifth place respectively, a defeat can potentially see the two sides swap positions, leaving Netherlands under immense pressure come their concluding game of the league. What would give Netherlands a massive boost though ahead of the all important encounter is the inconsistent nature of their opposition, something which has resulted in Argentina caught in the precarious situation they find themselves in.
ARG vs NED Dream11 Prediction
Probable Winner for ARG vs NED
It’s by some distance the most important fixture for these countries in their long stay in the expansive league and the level of the performances from either unit are bound to be elevated.
Expect neither to spare the smallest of expense in ensuring they make a massive stride towards consolidating a top 4 berth and with it a place in the imminent Japan 2020 Olympic Qualifiers as well.
With four wins straight wins, it’s Netherlands we are going to favour for today night’s match. What works in their favour are not only the 34 goals they’ve managed to score but also the fact that at 26, he number of times they’ve conceded is pegged at a considerably solid number as well. They’ll outscore Argentina in this match and go onto assure themselves of a spot in the semi-final.
Goal-Keeper for ARG vs NED Dream11
Vivaldi from Argentina is the pick we have gone for here. Despite letting in two goals against Spain the last time around, he came up with 30 save points, a steady number which sees him find a way in our line-up.

Defender for ARG vs NED Dream11
The reason for Argentina’s current chasing of the top 4 pack is their defence. The backline has over the course of the last month surprisingly given way to goals galore with the side going onto concede atleast two in each of their last five encounters. What was especially a sordid sight to see was how they let in two in the second half against Spain as well despite controlling the game 3-0 in the first and Netherlands are bound to make full use of these lapses.
Despite this, we have decided to go in with two defenders from Argentina, two players who love marauding up the field and contributing in the attacking game as well. Tolini and Ibarra are the two names from their side while Netherlands are going to be represented by Geus and Mink.
Mid-fielder for ARG vs NED Dream11
Across the course of the season, if there’s one name we couldn’t stay away from Netherlands, it’s been Bakker in midfield for us. He’s held together the centre of the park for his side so immaculately, attacking as the glue between defence and attack perfectly to cover up the lacklustre showings of his compatriots.
While it’s the sole pick from Argentina, we have ample choices here from Argentina and are going to indulge ourselves in Ortiz and Lopez.
Forward for ARG vs NED Dream11
One thing which is a 100% surety for the match is that we are in for a goal feast. Given the stakes at hand, no side is going to rest and allow the other side to walk over them.
Given this nature of the match, we have decided to include in unison, both Jeroen and Pruijser from Netherlands to come in and carry out their job as per has been the norm up till now. Completing our side for the day is Casella from Argentina.
