Netherlands vs Austria: Euros preview and predictions

After failing to qualify for the last European Championships and the 2018 World Cup, the Dutch are back at a major tournament for the first time since 2014.

They got off to a winning start, beating Ukraine 3-2 in perhaps the game of the tournament so far, and can now book their place in the last-16 with a game to spare by beating Austria.

The Austrians also have three points on the board already after beating newcomers North Macedonia in their opener, though this is likely to prove a much tougher test.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Netherlands vs Austria is scheduled for an 8pm BST kick-off on Thursday, June 17, 2021.

The match will be held at the Johan Cruyff ArenA in Amsterdam.

Netherlands vs Austria prediction

The Netherlands were one of the sharpest attacking sides we’ve seen at the tournament so far and should have the firepower to overcome a usually solid Austria defence.
