EURO 2020 Odds: Netherlands vs. Austria
There will be yet more Euro 2020 action on Thursday with two traditional international soccer heavyweights looking to build on a good start to the tournament. Indeed, Belgium and the Netherlands will take to the field again, but both sides will face a stiff challenge.
Austria also started their Euro 2020 campaign with a win and so Frank de Boer’s side can’t afford to take them lightly in Amsterdam. Meanwhile, Denmark, who were put in an impossibly difficult situation in their opening fixture against Finland, have the talent to trouble Belgium. Here are some predictions and picks for Thursday June 17 at Euro 2020.
De Boer’s team left it late to get the job done against Ukraine in their opening Group C fixture, scoring an 85th-minute winner after squandering a 2-0 lead earlier in the match. While the Netherlands looked dangerous in an attacking sense, their lack of defensive structure could cost them as they move through the tournament.
The omens are good for the Dutch ahead of this one having won their last six meetings with Austria (all competitions). Not only this, but they have scored two or more goals in in 10 of their last 11 European Championships games including qualifiers. The Netherlands have their faults, but they know how to find the back of the net.
Austria will surely play David Alba in a more advanced role than the one he started in against North Macedonia. The 28-year-old is their most important player and is the one who makes things happen for Austria. His deliveries could cause a Dutch defence missing the aerial presence of Virgil van Dijk significant problems on Thursday.

Ukraine, who have scored two or more goals in their last five European Championships matches including qualifiers, were somewhat unfortunate to suffer defeat to the Netherlands in their first game. However, Andriy Shevchenko’s side should get their first points on the board here.

The collapse of Christian Eriksen on Saturday rocked Denmark and so it’s difficult to know what to expect from them here. Belgium, however, will be strong having started their tournament on the front foot. Romelu Lukaku looks to be in ominous form.
