Where: Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor

Capacity: 68,895

Odds:

Netherlands win: 1/6

Key stats:

* If Netherlands lose they will qualify directly to the second round if Ecuador beat Senegal, but if Senegal win the goal difference or fairplay tiebreaker will decide second place in the group.

* Netherland never won the title but were runners-up three times in 1974, 1978 and 2010.

* Qatar were the first team to be eliminated from the finals, and it was only the second time that a host country exited the tournament in the first round after South Africa in 2010.

* Qatar will try to avoid being the first host country to fail to win a game in the finals.

* Mohammed Muntari made history when he scored Qatar's first World Cup goal in the 3-1 defeat by Senegal.
