The Netherlands vs Ukraine; Predictions and Betting Tips
Tenth Euro in which the Dutch have participated, having won it once before in 1988.
The Dutch are not among the favourites to win the tournament, but we know that they are a very hard-fighting team with a lot of quality. It is a very young squad but with high quality players like De Jong, De Ligt or Van De Beek.
The last time the two teams met, in 2010, only Stekelenburg, who was in the Dutch national team at the time, remains from the current squad.
Third Euro in which Ukraine, known as such since the break-up of the USSR, will participate. In the two previous editions they were eliminated in the group stage.
The Ukrainian national team arrives at one of its best moments of recent times, with players who have played great roles in important teams such as Zinchenko or Malinovski.
- Five wins, four draws and one defeat for The Netherlands in their last ten matches
- Five consecutive home matches without losing for The Netherlands
- Four draws, three wins and three defeats for Ukraine in their last ten matches
- Seven consecutive away matches without winning for Ukraine, five losses and two draws
The Netherlands vs Ukraine Predictions
These two teams are more evenly matched than it seems. The Dutch are playing at home, at a collective level they are superior and at an individual level they have some players who can make the difference in a match of this type. But the Ukrainians are a team that play as a unit, they don’t depend on any one player to win games. In summary, we think the Netherlands will win but not by much.
We think the Netherlands will have most of the possession and chances, but Ukraine is a team that plays quite defensively and they have done quite well in their last few games, that’s why we think this game will not have more than 2.5 total goals.
