Netherlands Stats & Form
The Oranje missed the previous European Championship in France, failing to qualify for the first time since 1984. They returned on the big stage after finishing second in the qualifying Group C with 19 points out of eight matches (W6, D1, L1) and a 24:7 goal difference. Holland won three of its four contests at home along with a 3-2 defeat to the mighty Germany team.
Over their previous five outings in all competitions, the Oranje have recorded four wins and a loss. Holland started the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup with a tough 4-2 defeat at Turkey, but they bounced back with a couple of wins over Latvia 2-0 and Gibraltar 7-0.
The head coach Frank de Boer counts on a bunch of young and talented players. They could make some noise this summer if everyone stays healthy, and the Netherlands are listed as 13.00 odds to become the European Champions.
Ukraine Stats & Form
The Yellow and Blue failed to reach the knockout phase in their previous two appearances at the UEFA European Championship. Back in 2016, they lost all three games, scoring no goals in the process and conceding five in a return.
Ukraine qualified for the EURO 2021 as the best team in Group B, recording six wins and a couple of draws along with a 17:4 goal difference. The Yellow and Blue won all four matches at home including a 2-1 victory over the reigning European champs Portugal. Ukraine is winless in five games in all competitions, tallying three draws and two defeats in that stretch.
The Yellow and Blue should come in full strength, led by the 24-year-old versatile midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko (38 caps, 5 goals). The head coach Andriy Shevchenko prefers to play with five guys in the middle of the park, so the 31-year-old forward Andriy Yarmolenko (92 caps, 38 goals) hasn’t been in the starting lineup over the last few months.
Netherlands vs Ukraine Head-to-Head Stats

Netherlands vs Ukraine Betting Tip:
Ukraine is winless in five straight outings, but Andriy Shevchenko’s boys have earned a 1-1 draw against France on the road during that stretch. Four of those five contests saw both teams scoring, so we’re expecting some goals on both sides when the Netherlands takes on Ukraine in the opening round of the EURO 2021.
Holland has conceded in five of its previous seven games overall. The Netherlands has been pretty inconsistent over the last few years, especially on the defensive end, while their offense should have enough firepower to find the net against Ukraine at home.
