Netherlands vs Ukraine Prediction & Tips
In a European “itinerant” one like the 2020 one, there are teams that are much more advantaged than others and one of these is the Netherlands who will play their group stage matches at home, at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam. The “oranje” selection coached by the former Inter coach Frank de Boer will be seen in the first match against Ukraine of the former AC Milan star Andriy Shevchenko. The Netherlands had finished the group stage in second place behind Germany and played two friendlies in preparation, drawing 2-2 against Scotland and winning 3-0 against Georgia. The Dutch could have an important defection as Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt is in strong doubt. If we add that goalkeeper Cilessen was injured in the preparation phase and Virgil van Diijk has been out for a long time, the problems of the oranje could be above all behind. Ukraine, on the other hand, won the qualifying round leaving CR7’s Portugal behind and in preparation drew 1-1 against Bahrain before defeating Northern Ireland 1-0 and Cyprus 4- 0.
Holland has become the protagonist of 6 Over 2.5 in the last 7 races.
The Netherlands will have great difficulties especially behind where they will miss the starting goalkeeper and two top-level central players like de Ligt and van Dijk.
Ukraine are in a streak of 6 games, but have only won the last 2 and in the previous 4 draws they have always finished 1-1.
In 6 of the last 9 games played, the Netherlands have always conceded goals except against modest Latvia, Gibraltar and Georgia.
The temptation to bet on Over 2.5 is strong above all because the attacking terminals are not lacking in both teams and the Netherlands will have to do without their starting defensive block. A risky but doubling share. Try it while hunting for a single.
