One of the reasons why this game is so labelled one of the most exciting games in the group stage is the fact that these same teams met in the final on the last championship, four years ago. Then, it was the Spaniards who lifted the trophy in the end. They are looking forward to defending their title and thus become the second country to do that, after Italy. The Dutch, on the other hand, will seek revenge for the rather unfortunate defeat 4 years ago. Moreover, they are a team who lost 9 times in the World Cup finals, and they are surely looking for a change of fortune this year in Brazil. With some of the best players in the world, such as Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben for the 'Oranje' and Xavi and Pedro for the 'Red Fury', we can surely expect nothing short of a full-scale spectacle.

Most online and landline betting houses offer +100 odds for Spain, which is hardly surprising. They are after all world champions and considered to be one of the 4 pretenders for the title, behind the host, Argentina and Germany. This game will be a great test for Spain's famous midfield which, according to many, is the best in the world. Still, a goal is necessary for a team to win a game of soccer and both David Villa and Fernando Torres, two of Spain's top attackers, had terrible seasons. The Spaniards will probably put their hopes in Pedro.

The Dutch are certainly not a team who gives up easily and despite the +300, or +230 odds, a victory for the orange team will not be a total surprise, especially if one looks at the playing level on which most of their key players, such as van Persie and Robben are this year. Louis Van Gaal might have a trick up his sleeve and surprise the Spain and the rest of the world. The odds for a draw are set at +225 and that, but many players will probably decide to put less conventional bets, such as correct score, half time/full time, or first goal. The odds for this kind of bets vary depending on many factors.
