After defeating Georgia 3-0 in their last warm-up game, Netherlands will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Ukraine in the Group C derby. The Oranje continue life without injured center-back Virgil van Dijk, who should be sorely missed at EURO 2020 finals. A man to watch in the home team will be Lyon attacker Memphis Depay, who scored the opener in the victory over Georgia.

Netherlands Team News

The Netherlands will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 3-0 International Friendlies success versus Georgia.

At least three goals per game have been seen in 5 of the past 6 meetings where the Netherlands has been involved. Their opponents scored 7 of them in this period while Oranje totted up 18. We shall soon see whether or not that trend will be sustained here.

The Netherlands has some injury concerns before the kickoff. At the moment, Matthijs de Ligt, Juventus’ young star, suffered a groin injury. Reports from the national team’s camp are still unclear whether he will be ready for the championship opening against Ukraine. Also, midfielder Van de Beek is pulled out of the team for EURO after his injury. Frank de Boer will not call a replacement for Van de Beek.

Ukraine will go into the meeting following a 4-0 International Friendlies win to beat Cyprus in their previous match.

In their last 6 clashes, Ukraine has bagged the sum of 9 goals. Zhovto-Blakytni have also scored in every single one of those games. In that time, their defenders have had 4 goals go into their own net.

Ukraine’s head coach, Andrey Shevchenko, also has injury concerns. Viktor Tsygankov and Oleksandr Tymchyk have some problems, but both should be ready for the opener against the Netherlands.

It is worth mentioning that Ukraine has a lot of problems in games out of the home. They have five losses and two draws in the last seven road matches.

Netherlands v Ukraine Head To Head: Statistic & Results

Will the Netherlands return victorious or could Ukraine snatch a win at EURO 2020? Have a look below for some team info, past results, and statistics.

The Netherlands at EURO 2020

Out of 35 games in Euro history, the Netherlands clinched 21 wins, suffered eight losses, and drew six times. During these matches, the team managed to score a respectable amount of goals – 76 in total. We can see these stats reflected in the Netherlands vs Ukraine odds.

Coach Ronald Koeman expressed his appreciation of the team’s well-developed goalkeeping, defense and midfield capabilities. He believes that his team has a chance of making it all the way through to the final. Koeman added that Ukraine mustn’t be underestimated, noting that they were in the same qualifying group as Portugal, and still finished top.

Both Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay made the top ten scorers in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, bagging eight and six goals, respectively. If they keep up that performance, they’re sure to sway the Netherlands vs Ukraine odds in their favor, which could influence any future Euro 2020 tips.

Ukraine at EURO 2020

With 32 games under their belt at the Euro, Ukraine scored a total of 48 goals, which is considerably lower than their opposition in this game. Still, on the heels of their opponents, they’ve managed 18 wins, nine draws, and five defeats. These stats render fairly competitive Netherlands vs Ukraine odds.

Team coach Andriy Shevchenko also admits his preference was not starting against their acquired opponent. He believes the team might’ve had a higher chance of qualifying for the knockout stages if drawn against Austria first. Even so, Ukraine knows the job asked of them, and won’t present their opponents with an easy match.

Ukraine’s most likely goalscorers include Viktor Tsyhankov, Ruslan Malinovskiy and Roman Yaremchuk. They all ranked in the top three of the Ukraine Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Before the start, it is important to mention that this game will be played in Amsterdam, at Johan Cruijff Arena, so the Netherlands will have an undoubtedly advantage.

With Austria, North Macedonia, and Ukraine in the same group, Netherlands is undoubtedly the four best teams. Frank de Boer, the team's head coach, selected in a team young stars like Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt, and Donyell Malen. With more experienced players as Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Stefan de Vrij, Netherlands have more than enough quality to compete with any team at EURO. Since club season has finished, they played two friendly matches. In the first, Netherlands played 2-2 against Scotland. After that, they won 3-0 vs Georgia.

Ukraine should be the second-best team in the group. They have stars like Ruslan Malinovskyi, Viktor Tsygankov, and Oleksandr Zinchenko. They had three games since club season is finished. First, they played 1-1 vs Bahrain. After that came two victories, 1-0 against Northern Ireland and 4-0 against Cyprus.

The Netherlands are the best team in this group. I expect them to open EURO with a win. My correct score prediction is a 2-1 win for the home side.

The Netherlands vs Ukraine Predictions

The Netherlands managed to score plenty of goals in qualifying for the 2020 European Championship but clean sheets were not always as easy to come by. The Dutch conceded goals against Germany, Northern Ireland, and Belarus. Ukraine will believe they are stronger than both Northern Ireland and Belarus and therefore should find the back of the net in this game.

Ukraine scored 17 goals in their 8 qualifying games and even if they go on to lose this game, they should cause the Dutch problems at the back. The odds for Ukraine vs the Netherlands offer a nice price for the Netherlands to win and both teams to score.

Highlighted Player: Memphis Depay

Memphis Depay is a Dutch winger who started his professional career at PSV Eindhoven. During the 2014/2015 Eredivisie campaign, the pacey footballer was on Manchester United’s radar, and on June 12, 2015, the Premier League club confirmed the signing of the Dutchman. Many people expected that he would impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League season, but the former PSV ace played below expectations for the Red Devils, scoring only two goals (one assist) during the season.

After playing only for league games for Man Utd in the 2016/2017 season, Memphis Depay was sold to Olympique Lyon on January 20, 2017. Depay signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Les Gones for a fee of around £16 million. The Dutch winger was producing fine performances for Lyon in the 2016/2017 season; he scored five goals for the club while providing eight assists for his teammates.

Memphis Depay made his senior debut for the Netherlands on October 15, 2013, in a 2-0 win over Turkey. Depay did well to win the 2011 European Championship with the Netherlands U17 team.
