Euro 2012 is almost upon us as we take a look at a Dutch squad that many people are expecting big things from. At Euro 2012 odds of 7/1, as always they are a shade of value, and with Robin Persie, Arjen Robben, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Wesley Sneidjer many will be expecting the Oranje to cause a stir.
Holland are a side that certainly have the squad strong enough to lift the trophy in Poland and Ukraine.
The Dutch side have never won a major tournament which comes as a surprise given the strength of the players at their disposal over recent years, but they should take care of Denmark in the opening game in Group C.
This time out they will be looking to go one better than the 2010 World Cup where they made the final but were beaten by Spain.
With a group that consists of Germany, Denmark and Portugal it will certainly be a tough task for Bert van Marwijk’s men and he will know they will have to be at their best to progress to the knockout stages. They do look to be in good form though having lost just one game in qualifying for the tournament.
You can back them at 4/7 to reach the quarter-final.

There is no doubt that Holland are a big threat in Euro 2012 and if they are at their best will be difficult for teams to handle.
Going forward they look to have a great balance. The creativity of Wesley Sneijder, the pace and skill of Arjen Robben and the sublime finishing of Robin Van Persie is something all defences will fear, and of course, they have Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to add additional support to the Arsenal striker.
After being given the tag of the nearly men in recent years, van Marwijk will hope his side can shake that off this summer. They are available at 13/2 to fall at the final hurdle and finish as runners-up again this year.
Winning the tournament in Poland and Ukraine will be something that everyone in Holland will be hopeful of achieving. Should they progress from Group B then they will certainly show that they mean business. The Dutch are being offered at 15/2 to lift the trophy.
