Netherlands – Austria
Netherlands are facing Austria at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam in a game from Group C of Euro 2020. We believe this is the right moment to grab your attention with a preview for this fixture.
For the Netherlands it wasn’t easy, but they kicked off their campaign just how they wanted – with the three points. Oranje faced Ukraine at the same ground in Amsterdam, but needed a late goal to secure a 3-2 win. The hero of the game was PSV’s Denzel Dumfries who scored a winning header in the 85th minute. Before this Wijnaldum and Weghorst gave a solid advantage to the Netherlands, but Ukraine managed to equalise with two goals for just four minutes of time.
Most likely the manager Frank de Boer won’t be doing changes in his 3-4-3 formation, but what about the line-up? Against Ukraine he picked players like Luuk de Jong, Owen Wijndal, Joel Veltman and Donyell Malen from the bench, so let’s see if he’s going to trust them again.
Frenkie de Jong and Gini Wijnaldum remain the key players in the middle area of the pitch while while Memphis Depay must lead the attack by example. According to the rumors, Depay is very close to joining Barcelona this summer.
Austria are leaders in Group C after their 3-1 win over North Macedonia in the first round. Until the 78th minute it was 1-1 between these two teams, but everything changed with David Alaba’s assist to Michael Gregoritsch for the second goal. Marko Arnautovic, who entered the pitch as a substitute, scored the third one against the Balkan team. It’s pretty much obvious that now Austria will have a much bigger opponent against them, though.
That’s our professional preview for the Euro 2020 clash between the Netherlands and Austria at the Johan Cruijff Arena. Surprisingly the Austrians are leaders in this group, but let’s see if they can keep this position.
