Betting tip: Netherlands 2-1 Austria

This has all the potential to be quite a tasty offering at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam between the Netherlands and Austria, but the hosts should have enough in the tank to see out the full collection of points while booking passage to the knockout stage as likely group winners. Both sides came into Euro 2020 with many being unsure of what to make of them, but both got desired starts to their campaigns with wins and will come to grips feeling justifiably confident on the strength of their results.

The Dutch have won their last six meetings with Austria and will undoubtedly be aided by the fact that they are in their own backyard for the entire group stage. A close win for the Netherlands seems a fair bet.

Netherlands to score at least 2 goals vs Austria

Despite the close nature of their result against Ukraine on matchday one, the Netherlands still looked good when going forward and the attacking triumvirate of Wout Weghorst (1 goal vs Ukraine), Memphis Depay, and Gini Wijnaldum (1 goal vs Ukraine) looks set to blossom. Also, Holland have scored at least twice in their last eight games.

Austria has plenty of attacking threat of their own, but being put under pressure could throw them for a spin considering their spells of dominant possession against North Macedonia (59%) is likely to be drastically reduced. The Netherlands’ recent record against Austria (6-0-0) should continue.

Wincast: Wout Weghorst to Score 1st/Netherlands Full-Time Result

Calls for VfL Wolfsburg center-forward Wout Weghorst to lead the line for the Dutch this summer paid dividends when the big man scored 6-minutes after Gini Wijnaldum’s opener to give the Netherlands a 2-0 lead on matchday one. His record at club level in the Bundesliga has been quite good (53-goals in 100-Bundesliga appearances), and the Netherlands have been crying out for a true frontman for quite some time. With Depay and Wijnaldum playing off his central presence, his instincts in the box could see him net (at least) his second of the competition in a Dutch win.

Netherlands vs Austria betting tips: Match preview

They did not make it easy for themselves, but the Netherlands saw off a stubborn Ukraine in their 3-2 win over Andriy Shevchenko’s troops in Amsterdam on matchday one. After taking a 2-0 lead through Gini Wijnaldum and Wout Weghorst, Ukraine battled back to draw level, and questions about the if of the Dutch under Frank de Boer were capable enough began to rise to the surface. But an 85th-minute strike from PSV Eindhoven right-back Denzel Dumfries sealed all the points and the Dutch should build confidence off that result.

It has been a torrid period for Dutch football in recent years, with Oranje failing to make it out of the group stage in 2012 while failing to qualify for Euro 2016 outright. Expectations around the Netherlands are certainly not what they used to be in years past, having won the competition in 1988 and finishing third on three occasions in four appearances in its wake (1992, 2000, 2004) but on paper, this is still a talented crop of players who may now finally be blessed with the requisite balance to push them forward.

Two of the Netherlands’ front three bagged goals against Ukraine, and though Memphis Depay did not find the back of the net, his mobility playing off Weghorst’s central figure offered considerable attacking balance that has been sorely missing from the Dutch ranks in quite some time.

Austria hopeful of erasing demons-past after opening win

It has been nearly 40-years since Austria advanced past the group stage of a major tournament when they reached the second round of the 1982 World Cup in Spain while having never shown at the European Championship. Of the two installments Unsere Burschen has featured at (2008, 2016), Austria had yet to register a single win until their 3-1 win against North Macedonia on matchday one. For a side that entered the tournament amidst the uncertainty of what to expect, there could not have been a better start to a campaign.

Heavily influenced by the vast majority of its players being based in the Bundesliga, Austria’s biggest challenge falls on the shoulders of headmaster Franco Foda who, blessed with a good crop of players, must find the most efficient and effective way of getting the maximum out of a squad that really should be looking at reaching the knockout stage as the base-level requirement this summer. Austria came into the tournament on the back of a poor calendar 2021, registering just one win (3-1 vs the Faroe Islands) while being thrashed 4-0 at the hands of Denmark and losing out to England 1-0. 2020 showed what can be, however, with Austria posting a 6-1-1 record (4-1-1 in Nations League play).

Though they left it till the final 12-minutes to see off North Macedonia, a comfortable win on the scoresheet and a high goal tally is a major sign of encouragement for an outfit that had questions about its goal potential coming into group play, with just Marko Arnautović (27) and David Alaba (14) being the only two options in Foda’s camp with double-digit goals for the national team. If Foda can find goals in budding forward SaÅ¡a Kalajdžić and squeeze more out of Michael Gregoritsch (he did score off the bench on matchday one) while unleashing Marcel Sabitzer to be the best version of himself, there is little reason why Austria will not find themselves in their first-ever knockout stage appearance at the Euro after the completion of group play.

Netherlands team news vs Austria

Dutch icon and current head coach Frank de Boer will have the same options available to him as the Netherlands looks to book their place in the knockout stage at the European Championship for the first time since 2008.

Former Ajax teammates Matthijs de Ligt and Donny van de Beek both remain unavailable through injury, but only the odd change is potentially expected to the XI that ran out 3-2 winners against Ukraine.

One of Nathan Aké or Joël Veltman could come in at left center-back to replace Daley Blind to target a potential matchup against Saša Kalajdžić should Franco Foda stick with the VfB Stuttgart forward.

Austria team news vs Netherlands

Austria headmaster Franco Foda has a fully available squad to choose from, save for one major absentee.

After scoring Austria’s third goal against North Macedonia, Marko Arnautović celebrated in a furious manner. On Wednesday, UEFA confirmed that Arnautović has been banned for one match for his outburst in the last game.

Elsewhere, Foda could shuffle his back three to target the expected partnership of Wout Weghorst and Memphis Depay, which could see David Alaba retain his place at the back, with Aleksandar Dragović potentially being replaced by one of Philipp Lienhart or Stefan Posch.
