Netherlands vs Wales recent form
Netherlands extended their unbeaten run to 12 games following a 2-2 draw against Poland in their recent UEFA Nations League 2022-23 outing. Besides this result, victories over Belgium (4-1) and Wales (2-1) ensured the Oranje sit on top of League A Group 4 with seven points.
Wales, on the other hand, are coming off a disappointing 1-1 draw against Belgium that earned them their first point of the campaign. The Dragons are in danger of relegation from League A if their form doesn’t improve drastically. For starters, Rob Page’s men will hope to end Netherlands’ unbeaten run in their own backyard.
