Netherlands v Ukraine Prediction - Head to Head
Netherlands v Ukraine Prediction - Form (All Competitions)
The Netherlands have been in good form most of the time, posting three wins in the last five games. Ukraine, for its part, is undefeated in their last five outings, though most of these results were draws. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.
Netherlands v Ukraine Prediction - Preview
The Netherlands are still a force to contend with, even though the three-time World Cup finalists and 1988 Euro champions are currently a lowly 15th in the FIFA rankings. Lyon’s Memphis Depay, Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong and Liverpool’s Giorgino Wjinaldum are among the standouts in this Dutch side managed by Frank de Boer. The Oranje qualified when they lost 3-2 to Germany in Amsterdam but beat Estonia 5-0 there. In their last warmup before Euro 2020, they beat Georgia 3-0, with Depay (penalty), Wout Weghorst and Ryan Gravenberch contributing a goal each. Can they repeat the feat with a stronger Ukraine side? We’ll find out soon.
- This is the first time the Netherlands have featured in the Euros or World Cup since finishing third at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
- Memphis Depay had eight assists in the qualifiers, which is more than any other player has had. He scored six goals himself, meaning he had a direct role in 58% of the Oranje’s 24 goals.
Ukraine are one of the lower FIFA ranked teams in the tournament at 24th place. They are, however, participating in their third successive Euros since co-hosting the event with Poland in 2012. Players of note in the Andriy Shevchenko-managed side include Man City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko, West Ham’s Andriy Yarmolenko and Atalanta’s Ruslan Malinovskyi. Zinchenko and Yarmolenko both contributed to their recent victory over Cyprus (3-0) in a friendly, with Roman Yaremchuk (Gent) adding the extra goal. The Yellow and Blue have a formidable test with the Dutch in their first match, and we’ll see if they could go toe-to-toe with them.
- Ukraine have lost five of their six Euro matches, the exception being a 2-1 defeat of Sweden in their opening Euro 2012 fixture.
- They are one of five sides to not lose a game in the preliminaries, together with Belgium, Italy – (who both won all their fixtures) Spain and Denmark.

Netherlands v Ukraine Prediction - Final Thoughts
Despite not having acquired silverware since 1988, the Netherlands are always a strong side in any tournament. Ukraine have a talented cast that has the potential to go far. However, you can always count on the more skilled Dutch side to play with “total football” spirit, and handily beat their opponents in the yellow and blue. Let’s take a look at the prediction.
