Netherlands vs Ukraine – Euro 2020 Betting Tips

The Netherlands are hosting the Ukraine national football team in the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on the 14th of June 2021 at 00:30 IST. There is not much to separate the teams in terms of the FIFA rankings, their only earlier meeting had ended with a stalemate as well, a win here could prove pivotal to either side going into the tournament. 

Netherlands Form and Team News

The Netherlands were as dominant as the number one placed team Germany in the Group rounds of the qualification but managed to slip up one extra game in the process which lead them to be second in the group.  After the eight games played, they won as many as six matches while losing just a game. They also drew a game. They scored the second-highest number of goals in the group netting 24 goals in the eight games. They just conceded seven goals in the process. They finished scoring 19 points. Group C where the Netherlands played had the likes of Germany and Northern Ireland in the mix as well. They have won five games in the last ten while also being on a four-match unbeaten streak coming into the first game of their EURO 2020 campaign against Ukraine at home on Sunday.

Frank De Boer has a brilliant set of youngsters at his disposal in the team who can turn out to become part of a world-beating setup in the future. He just has to manage them in the right direction going forward which given the standards he is keeping presently seems to have taken effect on the side. Memphis Depay, Maken, Luuk De Jong, Weghorst are the forwards for the side. Barcelona Superstar Frenkie De Jong, ManU star Van de Beek, Liverpool regular Wijnaldum, Promes, Gravenback and co. would contribute to the midfield. Juventus stalwart De Ligt, Nathan Ake, De Vrij, Daley Blind, Aanholt and Dumfries being the defence line while Krul or Stekelenburg would be on goal.

Ukraine Form and Team News

In the EURO qualification rounds, Ukraine were part of Group B with the likes of Portugal, Serbia, Luxembourg and Lithuania too in the mix. Ukraine finished as the number one team in the group with 20 points from eight games played. They won six games while losing not losing any games in the process. They also drew two games in the campaign. They did not score many goals with just 17 strikes in the back of the net, but still their defensive game was spot on thus prompting them to the number one status in the group with the Christiano Ronaldo led Portugal too being in the frame of things. Their last ten games have not been the best in terms of the results gathered. They won just three games in the last ten matches, losing just two but drawing a massive four games within that. They are going into the championship with wins in their last two games which augurs well for the team.

Andriy Shevchenko, the Ukraine national football team coach has been so far spot-on with his defensive game where the team have defended brilliantly, but this has also in a sense affected the team as well, they have not been able to score many goals in the process as well. Andriy would need to rectify that aspect of the game as well which could prove vital in this tournament. Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk, Zubkov and co are the strikers. Malinovskyi, Tsyygankov, Marlos, Shaparenko and co. would be the midfielders, Zinchenko, Mykolenko, Sobol, Zabarnyi and Popov defending and Trubin probably on goal.

Our Tipster’s Angle

 The Netherlands have a great recent seven matches where they went on to win five matches while Ukraine have won both of their last two games but before that, they had a very lean patch in terms of not getting the desired results. The Netherlands are the favorites going into the game with the recent consistent form and the team strength on the paper at least. Ukraine to continue their unbeaten streak will be a great effort from the touring side. 

Tip 1: Total Goals over 2.5

Six of the last seven matches that the Netherlands have played across competitions have had the total goals to be over 2.5. While playing at home, Netherlands have had three of their last four matches where the total goals have been over 2.5. In the case of Ukraine, in their last match played, have had the total goals to be over 2.5. Playing away across competitions, three of their last five matches also had the total goals to be over 2.5. In the Qualification rounds, Netherlands have had five of the last four total matches where the above condition was satisfied. Out of their last four qualification matches, Ukraine had three matches where the total goals were over 2.5. So it’s quite likely the match will have over 2.5 goals. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be over 2.5 is 2.25.

Tip 2: Both teams to score

In the last nine matches played by the Netherlands across competitions, six of those have had both teams score. While playing at home, three of the last five matches the Netherlands have played across competitions have had both teams scoring. In the qualification rounds, Netherlands had three of the last six matches where both teams have scored. Four of the last six matches Ukraine have been part of have had the above condition being satisfied. Playing away, two of their last three matches Ukraine was part of has turned out to have both teams scoring. Their last head to head match between the two sides also had yielded the condition as mentioned above, so it’s most likely both teams might end up scoring. The odds for Both Teams to score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 2.14.


The Netherlands have a good recent record while Ukraine is not having one. We can expect quite a few goals in this game with the attack of both the teams likely to make the match swing either way. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Total goals over 2.5 @ 2.25
  2. Both teams to score @ 2.14
