The Netherlands Betting Preview
Despite not having Virgil van Dijk ruling the defensive line with an iron fist, the Netherlands won their opening match. Truth be told, VVD’s absence was felt on more than a few occasions. Oranje spilled a two-goal lead in the second half, but managed to get back ahead thanks to Dumfries’ brilliant header in the 85th minutes.
The sheer passion, both teams’ performances, and brilliant goals, were what made it so darn good. Much of the same can be said about Austria vs. North Macedonia too. There was flair, sweet goals, and historical moments.
Come to think of it; I am not quite sure which of these two played better in their opener. Score-wise, it was Austria… but North Macedonia is nowhere near the quality of Ukraine, and I’m certain Zynchenko and the co. will prove that tomorrow.
Austria Betting Preview
Even though North Macedonia played a solid game last week, scoring their first-ever goal on a major event, they couldn’t hold off potent Austria’s attack in the last 15ish minutes, which led to not one but two late goals in their net.
Arnautovic, who came in off the bench in the 59th minute, scored in the 89th-minute brace, with Gregoritsch scoring the 2:1 goal just 11 minutes earlier.
Overall, Sabitzer was on top of his game in midfield, while David Alaba did all he could on both defensive and attacking ends. Alaba came in with the assist on Austria’s second goal – and it was a superb assist, mind you!
Well, now that they have three points, they are the creators of their own fate. If they snatch at least one point away from the Dutch tomorrow, they’ll have a wide-open shot at the top spot against Ukraine.
The Netherlands vs. Austria Betting Predictions
The time has come for us to wrap up our “The Netherlands vs. Austria picks”! We’ve closely examined both sides, and I firmly believe we’re ready to call it a day.
In this case, the Dutch national team. While I do believe they are the stronger side here, at -175, a match-winner on Depay and the company isn’t the best option.
However, we can rest assured Oranje will score a goal. Alongside that, we can also rest assured their defensive line will make at least one mistake that’ll lead to a conceded goal. Even if they don’t, Austria has fine attackers ready to pounce at even the slightest of openings in the final third.
With all that in mind, opting for both teams to score at -125 is what we’re going with for this one!
Both teams to score at -125 is a real treat here. We all know they can score; they made sure of that in the opener matches where they both scored three.
Debutants from North Macedonia stood their ground, but I doubt they’re near the level of the fiery Ukrainian team.
As always, thanks for reading the whole piece; fingers crossed we see a goalfest on the Netherlands vs. Austria tomorrow.
