BEL vs NED Dream11 Prediction: The SportsRush Presents to you the Belgium vs Netherlands FIH Pro League Best Dream 11 Team.
After losing just one match, Belgium’s trounamnet has taken unexpected turn and for the worse. They’ve now lost two matches on the bounce with none hurting them more than the stunning defeat Netherlands inflicted on them yesterday. They were trumped 4-0 by Netherlands in what was arguably one of the biggest results till date from the FIH Pro League.
Belgium don’t have anyone but themselves to blame though for their bludgeoning form. After cantering to wins, the side refused to partake in the usual, resting their key players at will. It ended up breaking the balance of the side, hampering all the good work the world champions had put in earlier in the season to leave them falling short of Australia who occupy first place.
For Netherlands though, the win massively reaffirmed their position in the top 4. With 17 points, they now find themselves holding firmly onto third place, a position which they’ll ensure they don’t hand over so easily.
With 2 points separating the third ranked and the sixth ranked team, Netherlands know the tournament is far from over for. Leave ajar the slightest bit of breathing room and teams will bounce on them sooner than they are aware of what overtook them. It’s this script which will see them dole out their best players on the day against Belgium and give it their all in the encounter.
Belgium meanwhile themselves will be self aware that they are no longer the untouchable unit once being considered. Cracks have started appearing in the side with teams more than capable and ready to pounce upon them and make the most of the apparent lapses.
What we are in for is another goal feast on Sunday to wrap up the men’s matches in the most befitting of fashions. Both the sides are going to plunder each others goals and we just see Belgium overturning Saturday’s defeat and winning this one.
BEL vs NED Dream11 Prediction
Goal-Keeper for BEL vs NED Dream11
A cleansheet on Saturday meant that Netherland’s Sam ended up giving 32 points and it’s this fact which sees us repose faith in the shot stopper for this match as well.
Defender for BEL vs NED Dream11
Alexander is the only defender we are going to get in from Belgium. The backline has started languishing and we don’t want to suffer the ramifications of that exodus.
Netherlands will see us bring in Mink and Jonas. Both got good playing minutes yesterday, leaving them more than well rested for yet another appearance today and we fully see them making more than a cameo for their side in the second match in the same number of days.

Mid-fielder for BEL vs NED Dream11
We’ve decided to pick up 4 all-rounders this time around, shifting our strategy from yesterday. The two we have decided to select from Belgium are Bakker and Sloover, two players who are stupendous when in full flight.
Puffelen and Lodewijks are our options from Netherlands. The middle of the park for them will have to be at its scintillating best if they are to curtail a Belgium attack which will imbed all due processes. The tackling and block points could prove to be a difference maker in the end.
Forward for BEL vs NED Dream11
We’ve finally come across the section we were most anticipating to get started on. After their significant win yesterday, Netherlands are going to be represented by Bjorn Kellerman. He was outstanding, coming back into the side after a couple of matches to get more than 100 points for the second time this season and the performance should be more than enough to see him get another chance as well.
Boon and Charlier are the two picks from Belgium to bring a culmination to our selection process
