Hard to predict anything other than convincing Dutch victory although Aussies looked threatening at times against Chile. A win should see Holland through.

prediction 2-0

It won't probably be a hammer as in the first match. Despite the Netherlands being one of the big shots it wasn't the favorite against Spain and certainly contributed a lot to take out the pressure. Now people expect a lof of them against the at least in theory weaker side of the group.
Australia are a brave team and they will play the hearts out. Expecting a physical game but Netherlands will win comfortably at the end.

2-0 I hope

De Vrij, de Guzman and van Persie are a card away from a suspension.

What's the rule if we make the second round? Will the yellow card be carried to the next round?

If it is not carried it wouldn't fair IMO. It is like a free pass to hard tackles.

But of course losing players like Van Persie would be a terrible blow for Holland.

They will be cleared only after the quarterfinal, so if any one of those get a yellow in the second round, they will miss the quarterfinal.

Everybody will be given a clean chit :smileani: after the quarters.
