Netherlands vs Austria Live Euro 2020 Predictions: Team News
The Netherlands needed a late Denzel Dumfries header to beat Ukraine last week, but Frank De Boer's side got their Euro 2020 campaign off to a good start.
Austria looked competent against North Macedonia, but despite the 3-1 scoreline, they weren't exactly convincing, so we're going with Holland to take all three points today in what is expected to be a close match.
The Netherlands has won yet again.
While not entirely convincing, the Dutch were able to secure a win against Ukraine in their Group C opener, bringing Holland's record to six wins in eight games, including victories over Poland and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In comparison, Austria has only won twice in their last seven games, losing to Denmark and England along the way, and Franco Foda's side looks far from convincing against North Macedonia on Sunday.
On Sunday afternoon, Holland clearly outshot and out-passed Ukraine, who scored with two of their only real chances of the game, leaving the Netherlands unlucky to win by one goal.
Given all of this, betting on Holland to win all three points today appears to be a sound bet.
In Amsterdam, there are a number of offenses on display.
Both the Netherlands and Austria found the back of the net in their first games, despite their respective defenses not exactly shining.
Both teams have scored in six of Holland's last nine games, with the three exceptions coming against Latvia, Georgia, and Gibraltar, all of which aren't exactly replete with attacking talent.
In comparison, Austria has scored and conceded in nine of their last fourteen games, indicating that their defense is clearly unable to keep up with their consistent offense.
With these stats in mind, both teams finding the back of the net today appears to be a very strong bet.
Goals aplenty in the Dutch capital
In their first Euro 2020 games, Holland and Austria scored five and four goals, respectively, with both teams scoring at least three times.
Four of Austria's last six games have seen three or more goals, whereas the Netherlands have seen at least three goals in seven of their last eight, with De Boer's side scoring 34 goals in these eight games at a rate of more than four per game.
During Euro qualifying, Holland scored 31 goals in eight games, while Austria scored 27 in ten, demonstrating that both teams frequently score a lot of goals.
