Netherlands – Russia… or Holland vs Hiddink

The Netherlands take on Russia in the quarterfinals of Euro 2008. Russia is coached by Dutchman recordman Guus Hiddink.

This will be the seventh time that the Netherlands have faced a country coached by a Dutch trainer; and pay attention: The Netherlands have never lost in those encounters, compiling a 5-1-0 record.

According to Infostrada Sports, the only draw was in 2006 against Australia, who were then coached by Hiddink. In February 2007, Hiddink’s Russia lost 4-1 in a friendly against the Netherlands.

I predict a Netherlands victory within 90 minutes, 2-1.

What's your final score for this game?

Russians are +365 on the money line. Those are incredible odds. Netherlands have been on a scoring tear. Netherlands -1 (+115) maybe even better odds.

Im thinking 3-1. Netherlands.

I'm going for 2-0 to Holland, with Van der Sar having to work for his saves, but ultimately keeping up the clean sheet. Let's say goals by Sneijder and Ruud.

What a pathetic showing by Holland...how much were they paid to lose? The most absurd result imaginable....who can pay attention to UEFA national games at this point? A bloody circus.
