Netherlands vs Czech Republic betting tips: Win probabilities

At the time of writing, Netherland are 58% favourites to reach the quarter-finals.

The Czechs have a 17% win probability, while the draw is valued at 25%.

Betting prediction: Netherlands 3 – 0 Czech Republic


The Czechs surprisingly have the upper hand in this head-to-head with 5 wins to the Netherland’s 3 from their 11 encounters. This includes wins in the last 2 matches between them, both in the qualifiers for the 2016 Euros, as well as a win the last time they met in this tournament back in 2004.

However, the Netherlands dominated their group with a 100% record and should overpower “the Locomotive” here. Also, Holland have scored at least two goals in each of their last ten matches.

Oranje’s last international match outside the Netherlands was a 2-2 draw with Scotland, in Portugal, in a Euro 2020 warm-up friendly.

Recommended Netherlands vs Czech Republic betting tips

1-0 Netherlands win. The Netherlands’ only victory over Czech Republic at a major tournament was a 1-0 win back in Euro 2000 courtesy of a Frank de Boer penalty, won by his twin brother Ronald. Can Frank lead his country to a win of the same scoreline now as manager of the Flying Dutchmen?

1-1 draw. Czechia held Croatia to a 1-1 draw in the group stages, which proved a vital point in their qualification for the Round of 16. These nations have also twice drawn 1-1 in previous matches.

3-2 Czech Republic win. The Czech Republic beat the Netherlands 3-2 the last time these nations faced each other in a major tournament, back in Euro 2004. It is also the scoreline when they last met in all competitions when the Czechs beat the Dutch 2-3 in Amsterdam in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Over 2.5 goals. The Netherlands vs the Czech Republic has been a high-scoring game in the most recent encounters, with 4 of the 6 matches finishing with over 2.5 goals scored; an average of 3.5 goals per game. You can back another high scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 10/11 on for over 2.5 goals.


Donyell Malen anytime goalscorer. Donyell Malen (below) caught the eye in the Netherland’s final group game, coming in to replace Wout Weghorst. While the 22-year-old is yet to get on the scoresheet this tournament, he has impressed with his unselfish play and laid 2 goals on a plate for his teammates. Malen was the Eredivisie’s second-top scorer this season with 19 goals.

Netherlands vs Czech Republic betting tips: Match preview

Despite being the competition’s top goalscorers and being one of only three sides with a 100% record in the group stages, the Netherlands are still only 7th favourites to lift the Euro 2020 trophy.

This is made even more remarkable when you consider that they face potentially the easiest Quarter-Final matchup. Additionally, they would avoid the two favourites in France and Italy, as well as reigning champions Portugal, until the final, should they make it that far.

Perhaps this is a reflection of the quality of opposition they faced in the group stage. North Macedonia were considered the weakest side in the competition. In addition, 3rd placed Switzerland and 2nd placed Austria are rated 14th and 16th respectively of the remaining 16 sides in the odds of winning the competition.

Or maybe this is simply people believing they lack a ‘proper goalscorer’. Whether it was Marco van Basten, Patrick Kluivert, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie or Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, every great Dutch side has had a prolific goalscorer. Someone who will score a goal every 2 games or better at this level.

While Depay (above) is just a little outside that with 28 goals in 67 caps, and Weghorst has a record of a goal every 2 games or better in each of his last 4 league seasons, neither seems to be considered a goalscorer or focal point #9 by many for this Dutch side.

This pair, plus Donyell Malen, all scored 19 league goals or better last season for their respective club sides. Yet still there remains a question mark over the goalscoring ability of all three of the main forwards in this Dutch side.

For this reason, the question of whether Donyell Malen keeps his place in the starting XI, or Wout Weghorst is restored to the starting XI seems to be the only selection doubt coming into this one.

Ultimately though, it is questionable whether the quality of this Czech side are equal to, never mind superior to the sides the Dutch faced in the group stages. It is for this reason many are predicting the Netherlands will make light work of Czechia here.

“It’ll be a tough match. We’ll play in Budapest, in front of a probably packed stadium. The Dutch have immense quality, especially going forward. They’re really great, so we have to watch out for that.”
Pavel Kadeřábek, Czech Republic defender

The Czech Republic come into this match having kept the attacks of England and Croatia reasonably quiet in their last two matches. After a clean sheet against Scotland, they limited both England and Croatia to just 1 big chance per match in their previous two games.

Tomáš Vaclík in the Czech goal has been vital in helping to stay in games and is statistically behind only Danny Ward in the number of goals he has prevented for his side, at 1.2. If the Czechs can reduce the Dutch to a handful of half-chances, with Vaclík in goal they will believe they can stay in the match. Then they require only a chance for Patrik Schick to nick a goal at the other end; the only Czech player to have got on the scoresheet so far this tournament.

Netherlands team news vs Czech Republic

There was disappointing news from the Dutch camp this week, as we discovered Luuk de Jong will be out for the rest of the competition. The 30-year-old Sevilla forward had made 2 substitute appearances for the Dutch in the group stages. However, having suffered a medial collateral ligament injury in training, de Jong will now begin his rehab to play for Sevilla again next season.

The Dutch were already a man down after losing Donny van de Beek to a groin injury last week. With no further replacements allowed, they now proceed into the knockout rounds with a 24-man squad.

The Netherlands have no suspensions after the group stages of the competition. However, Marten de Roon must be careful as his yellow card against Austria carries into the knockout rounds.

De Roon sat out the final group match to avoid a suspension here. He is expected to return to the starting XI in place of Ryan Gravenberch but would be suspended for the Netherlands ’ quarter-final match if he receives a yellow card against the Czechs.

Dutch Squad in Full

Goalkeepers: Maarten Stekelenburg (Ajax), Tim Krul (Norwich City), Marco Bizot (AZ)
Defenders: Joël Veltman (Brighton & Hove Albion), Matthijs de Ligt (Juventus), Nathan Aké (Manchester City), Owen Wijndal (AZ), Stefan de Vrij (Internazionale), Patrick van Aanholt (Crystal Palace), Daley Blind (Ajax), Denzel Dumfries (PSV), Jurriën Timber (Ajax)
Midfielders: Georginio Wijnaldum© (PSG), Davy Klaassen (Ajax), Marten de Roon (Atalanta), Ryan Gravenberch (Ajax), Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona), Teun Koopmeiners (AZ), Donny van de Beek (Manchester United)
Forwards: Steven Berghuis (Feyenoord), Luuk de Jong (Sevilla), Memphis Depay (Lyon), Quincy Promes (Spartak Moscow), Wout Weghorst (VfL Wolfsburg), Donyell Malen (PSV), Cody Gakpo (PSV)

Czech Republic team news vs Netherlands

The Czech Republic have no injury concerns coming into the knockout stages of the competition.

However, they will be without Jan Boril following his yellow card against England in their final group game. Pavel Kadeřábek looks set to replace him who famously scored in the 3-2 win for the Czech Republic when these sides last met in 2015.

Adam Hlozek and Lukas Masopust are also walking the suspension tightrope here. Should they make it into the final 8, they would miss the match if they receive another yellow card here.

Jaroslav Silhavy has named a consistent XI with 10 players starting all 3 matches. Tomás Holes or Alex Kral in midfield is his only change to the starting lineup so far during the tournament. Kral’s cameo appearances in the last 2 group games will have done little to convince Silhavy that he should start ahead of Holes.

Czech Squad in Full

Goalkeepers: Tomáš Vaclík (Sevilla), Aleš Mandous (Republic Sigma Olomouc), Tomáš Koubek (FC Augsburg)
Defenders: Pavel Kadeřábek (1899 Hoffenheim), Ondřej Čelůstka (Republic Sparta Prague), Jakub Brabec (Republic Viktoria Plzeň), Vladimír Coufal (West Ham United), Tomáš Kalas (Bristol City), Tomáš Holeš (Republic Slavia Prague), David Zima (Republic Slavia Prague), Jan Bořil (Republic Slavia Prague), Aleš Matějů (Brescia)
Midfielders: Antonín Barák (Hellas Verona), Vladimír Darida© (Hertha BSC), Lukáš Masopust (Republic Slavia Prague), Petr Ševčík (Republic Slavia Prague), Jakub Jankto (Sampdoria), Tomáš Souček (West Ham United), Alex Král (Spartak Moscow), Jakub Pešek (Republic Slovan Liberec), Michal Sadílek (Republic Slovan Liberec)
Forwards: Patrik Schick (Bayer Leverkusen), Adam Hložek (Republic Sparta Prague), Michael Krmenčík (PAOK), Matěj Vydra (Burnley), Tomáš Pekhart (Legia Warsaw)
