Netherlands-Japan Betting Preview: Back at least one team to keep a clean sheet

The Oranje face Alberto Zaccheroni's side in Genk this weekend with both sides already securing their place in Brazil next summer, with our tipster backing few goals
Netherlands take on Japan in a friendly with both sides easily qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil this year.

Alberto Zaccheroni's men topped their Asia qualification group, winning five of their eight matches to secure 17 points and finish four points ahead of Australia. Holland's qualification was emphatic. Louis van Gaal's men won nine of their 10 matches to sail through with 28 points, nine ahead of Romania in second position.

Van Gaal's side come into this friendly unbeaten in their last 15 matches, winning 11 of those games. The Oranje will be keen to prepare well for the World Cup in Brazil next summer having lost in the final to Spain in South Africa back in 2010.

The Dutch hold the record of playing in the most finals without winning, having done so in three championship finales.

Van Gaal will be keen to go one better next summer, and you can be sure his side will take the friendlies seriously. BetVictor price them at 4/9 (1.44) to win this match.

Japan come into this match having lost their last two matches. Serbia comfortably beat Zaccheroni's side last month 2-0, before Belarus claimed victory four days later with a 1-0 win.

The Samurais don't travel well, losing five of their last eight away matches. Japan have qualified for the last five World Cups though, and will be looking to find some form within the friendlies they play in the build-up to Brazil. BetVictor price them at 11/2 (6.50) to claim victory. The same firm price the draw at 33/10 (4.33).

A bet that stands out in this fixture is both teams to score 'NO' at 20/21 (1.95). This would have paid out in five of Holland's last seven home matches, as well as in three of Japan's last four matches.
