Nethterlands vs Austria: Predictions and Betting Tips
The Dutch won their opening match 3-2 against the Ukrainians. Overall they deserved the win, but there were moments of defensive lapses and lack of concentration that cannot be allowed in a tournament of this importance.
Of particular note was the performance of Dutch right-back Dumfries, who was named MVP in the match against Ukraine, and Memphis Depay, who was very active, especially in the first half, and made some very good through balls.
The Dutch have not lost to the Austrians since 1984.
The Austrians started the EURO with a 3-1 victory over the Macedonians, although the feeling of the game was not very good overall.
In Austria, David Alaba, who despite playing as a defensive midfielder in theory, was everywhere on the pitch, both defending and attacking, was of course particularly noteworthy. In fact, Austria’s second goal came after a sensational cross from him.
In the last five encounters against the Netherlands, the Austrians have lost in all of them.
- Four wins and one draw for The Netherlands in their last five games
- Holland have scored 17 goals in their last five games
- Two wins, two losses and one draw for Austria in their last five games
- Austria have conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games
Netherlands vs Austria Predictions
The match will be played in the Netherlands, and we saw in their first match that the atmosphere of the Dutch helped a lot against the Ukrainians. In football terms, we think the Netherlands are a few steps above Austria, but we don’t think they will beat them by much
For this match we think that the Netherlands will have the majority of control of the ball and that Austria will wait for counter-attacks. Due to the good defensive level of both teams we don’t think it will be a match with many goals, but rather that the match will be resolved by a low score.
