Three-time losing finalists, the Netherlands get their 2022 World Cup campaign underway on Monday as they take on reigning African Cup of Nations champions, Senegal at the Al Thumama Stadium. Here at we'll provide the latest odds and free bet offers courtesy of our partners at Coral.

Road to Qatar

Netherlands are set to play their first World Cup match since clinching third place at the 2014 tournament. The Dutch failed to qualify in 2018 but topped their qualifying group for 2022 ahead of Turkey, Norway, Montenegro, Latvia and Gibraltar.

Since securing their place in this year's World Cup, Netherlands have gone on to qualify for the UEFA Nations League finals after winning their group ahead of Belgium, Poland and Wales.

Senegal arrive in Qatar as reigning African champions having edged out Egypt in February's AFCON final. They then defeated the same opponents in a World Cup qualification play-off in March.

Betting Tips

The Dutch could prove to be a real threat at this tournament and they're expected to win all three group games. At 7/10, you should consider backing the Netherlands to win.

Memphis Depay undoubtedly remains Netherlands' go-to man in front of goal despite an underwhelming season at Barcelona. Depay has 21 goals in his last 22 internationals and ended the qualification campaign as top scorer. However, Depay will miss the Senegal game through injury.

In his absence, PSV forward, Cody Gakpo will be determined the seize his opportunity for the Dutch. The 23-year-old has nine goals in fourteen Eredivisie matches this season as well as three goals in nine internationals. Gakpo to score at any time is available at 15/8, whilst he is excellent value at 9/2 to score first.
