The SportsLine soccer simulation model evaluates a team's offensive and defensive capabilities based on the game situation. Then, it assigns a grade using an expected payout-to-probability ratio.

The model knows the Dutch are led by forward Memphis Depay, who is among the most experienced players on the team. The 28-year-old has appeared in 83 matches for the Netherlands and registered 42 goals. Depay, who has played professionally since 2011, plays for Barcelona of La Liga, and has 14 goals in 41 appearances since the start of last season. In 396 pro appearances, he has scored 147 goals.
The model also has considered that Qatar has a number of explosive options on offense, with four players with 20 or more goals in international competition. Leading the way is forward Almoez Ali, who has participated in 86 matches for Qatar, scoring 42 goals. The 26-year-old began his professional career in 2015, and for the past seven seasons has played for Al-Duhail Sports Club in the Qatar Stars League.
