Italy v Netherlands - UEFA EURO 2025 Women
Netherlands host Finland on Friday.

Netherlands welcome Finland to the Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel for a Euro Women's qualifier on Friday (May 3). The hosts will look to build on their 1-0 home win over Norway last time out in the qualifiers in April.

Lineth Beerensteyn's sixth-minute strike proved to be the difference between the two sides. Finland, meanwhile, claimed a 2-1 comeback home win over Italy. They went behind to Manuela Giugliano's 39th-minute strike. But Jutta Rantala drew the game level three minutes into the second hal before Elena Linari's 75th-minute own goal decided the contest.

The win left the Boreal Owls at the foot of Group 1, having garnered three points from two games, while Netherlands are level on points in third spot.

Netherlands Women vs Finland Women Prediction

Netherlands started off their qualifying campaign with a defeat to Italy before rebounding with a narrow victory over Norway. Andries Jonker's side will be expected to build on that in a second consecutive home game, where they are seen as the pre-game favourites.

Finland, for their part, proved their mettle to overcome a first-half deficit against Italy. Their victory over Le Azzurre threw the group wide open, with all four sides level on three points apiece. Marko Saloranta's side are the underdogs on paper but will be full of confidence owing to their impressive run of form.

Netherlands are unbeaten in their last four head-to-head games, and a win could take them to the top of the group. Expect the hosts to claim all three points with a routine victory and also keep a clean sheet.
