Netherlands – Ukraine: forecast for the match of the European Football Championship

Sports commentator Sputnik Georgia gives predictions for UEFA EURO 2020 football match between the national teams of the Netherlands and Ukraine

The Netherlands will play their first match at UEFA EURO 2020 against Ukraine. “Orange” are not favorites in the fight for victory in the tournament, but Franck de Boer’s line-up is quite battle-worthy. The team, of course, should go to the playoffs of the European Championship, but it’s hard to say how its fate will develop further.

In the match against Ukraine, the Netherlands are, of course, the favorites. You can bet on the victory of the representatives of the country of tulips with a coefficient of 1.7 (versus 5.8 for Ukraine). But de Boer’s team has problems. The composition is good, but there are problems.

Ukrainian national football team

Before the start of EURO, the Netherlands played two friendly matches. We drew 2: 2 with Scotland and easily beat Georgia 3: 0. But at the same time, in the selection for the 2022 World Cup, the “orange” more than unexpectedly lost to Turkey (2: 4). In the absence of Virgil van Dijk, it turns out that the Netherlands has serious problems in the center of the defense. If Ukraine claims to be out of the group, then you need to seize the moment.

By the way, the Ukrainian national team itself managed to interrupt a seven-match losing streak only in friendly matches. Andriy Shevchenko’s team beat Northern Ireland (1: 0), and then Cyprus (4: 0). Prior to that, the Ukrainians had drawn 1: 1 four times in a row, and even earlier they had suffered three defeats in a row.

It seems to me that the game will be difficult for both opponents. The Netherlands, already in the course of the EURO, will begin to solve their problems, and Ukraine will try to reach a level that allows it to fight for the playoffs. I will assume that the Netherlands will win with a minimal advantage, although I will not be surprised at all with a draw.

Bet: Netherlands win by one goal or draw at 1.82.
