Monday night is the eleventh ‘Derby of Low Countries’ at the program in women’s football. Both teams are not yet sure of qualification for the quarter-finals.
Tonight, at quarter to nine in the battle of The Red Flames, the Orange Lionesses in the sold-out King Willem II Stadium in Tilburg, the netherlands. In Group A, the group of Belgium, is everything still open. In addition to Belgium and the Netherlands can also Norway and Denmark are still places for the next round.
Both the Belgian and the Dutch ladies are the best thumbs for their Norwegian colleagues. As the Norwegian football to win, then the Netherlands are definitely through to the next round. The Norwegians can only qualify for the quarter-finals as they are three points address, and if their doelpuntensaldo (now -3) is higher than that of Belgium (now 1) and of Denmark (now 0). The Flames can thus best to win, but even then they are still depending on the doelpuntensaldo of the Danish ladies. We profit ends Belgium all over Norway.
After the 2nd matchday in Group A the Netherlands is only at the top with 6 points. The Norwegians are surprisingly on the spot 4. ???????? #WEURO2017 pic.twitter.com/n2uccNmMN0

The Belgian fans will be the Scandinavian tête-à-tête with a half eye to follow. The confidence in their own abilities with the Dutch is, however, something greater: they see their team all play in the quarterfinals as the winner of their group. For each quarter, there are still tickets available, except for that of July 29, in Doetinchem. In that contest the second of group B against the first of group A. And who will play in group A? Yes, the Orange Lionesses.
Not only the Dutch supporters, but also the players are full of confidence. Surely that is deduced from the following statement of the Dutch Mandy Van den Berg in an interview with NUsport: “We want Belgium broken play by passing the ball around, a lot of opportunities and hopefully a lot of scoring.’
The Flames know what they have to do: win, and best with a few goals difference.
