Netherlands vs Ukraine Predictions


Ukraine have a talented attack that can score against Netherlands. This should be an exciting match with the home side to take all three points at Euro 2020.

  • Netherlands have won 5 of their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Netherlands have seen BTTS in 6 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
  • Ukraine have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 6 matches (all competitions).

Netherlands have a 1-0 advantage against Ukraine with one draw in two matches.

Both have been friendlies, the last encounter in 2010 which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Netherlands Form


Netherlands have won three of their last four matches in all competitions. 

Oranje lost their opening World Cup qualifier 4-2 in Turkey after going 3-0 down. They got back on track with a 2-0 win against Latvia and 7-0 win against Gibraltar.

Frank de Boer’s side have played two friendlies to prepare for Euro 2020. They drew 2-2 against Scotland with Memphis Depay scoring both goals.

Netherlands’ last match was a 3-0 win against Georgia. Depay, Wout Weghorst and Ryan Gravenberch were on target in Enschede.
