Netherlands vs Austria Betting Tips & Predictions

Betting on Netherlands - Austria in the second round of play in EURO 2020/2021 is quite interesting, but could change depending on the situation after the opening games have been played. If Austria fails to win against North Macedonia, they will have to open up more against the Netherlands than they usually would want to. The same goes for the Netherlands if they somehow miss out on three points against Ukraine, which in all honesty is not impossible at all. Still, the facts that remain are that Frank de Boer and his men are way stronger on paper than Austria is, and they will also benefit from the home advantage.

Austria logically only possesses one weapon in their arsenal for the upcoming EURO 2020/2021 game - their defence. That in combination with the Netherlands having the same strength speaks for a low scoring game, and in all honesty it’s hard to imagine Austria scoring at all. As such I will make a decision between the home win, and a low scoring game. The odds for Under 3 goals with Asian Handicap (money back on exactly three) seems worth a shot, instead of a home win for worse odds. There is a scenario where Austria manages to park the bus, and stop the weakest part of the Netherlands team. Other betting options for this game would be the Netherlands to win to nil for example, but we feel confident in our O/U selection.

Netherlands vs Austria EURO 2020/2021 Game Analysis, Odds and Betting Predictions

The second round of play in Group C will see the Netherlands inviting Austria to the newly named Johan Cruijiff Arena for an important matchup. There is little doubt that the home side led by the legend, Frank de Boer, will be favourites and expected to win. It is a story of revenge that looms for the EURO 2020/2021, as the Netherlands have missed out on two major tournaments through failed qualifiers for both EURO and the World Cup lately. The new generation of the proud football nation will be relied upon to bring back glory to the iconic orange shirts. On the other side Austria is ready to do their best to spoil the long awaited party. Could they add another heartbreak to their opponent? That’s what we will try to find out as we analyse Netherlands and Austria, as well as finding the best odds and betting opportunities for this exciting matchup.

Group C is beforehand an interesting story, with the Netherlands being the clear favourite to win the group. Ukraine and Austria are expected to fight for the second place finish for a guaranteed playoff spot, with one hanging on to the hopes of qualifying as the best third placed team. However, North Macedonia will act as the joker who could spoil it all, and if Austria could get a draw or better in Amsterdam they would be well on their way to guaranteeing their survival. Likewise, the pressure will be on the Netherlands to grab the expected three points, or they can quickly end up in an awkward situation.

Netherlands - Overview & Facts

As we have already mentioned, the Netherlands are looking to bounce back after years of disappointment. Missing both EURO 2016 and the World Cup 2018 were massive missteps for a nation ranked among the best in the world for decades, with only one missed major tournament since 1986 (WC 2002). Change was needed and the first came through Ronald Koeman taking over as acting manager, which has now turned into the legend Frank de Boer leading the Netherlands for EURO 2020/2021. Having the second most caps (112) in history for his nation, only after Wesley Sneijder (134), it’s fair to say that experience from the good old days has been added. With bronze medals from EURO 2000 and 2004, Frank de Boer brings a winning mentality to a team that has gone hell and back since 2016. It’s finally time for the Netherlands to return to the biggest football stage, and that’s where they belong.

The qualification for EURO 2020/2021 was easy for the Netherlands, as one could have expected considering their group draw. In the five nation group they had to place higher than Northern Ireland, Belarus and Estonia to secure a ticket, which proved itself being no issue at all. A score line of 6-1-1 with a goal differential of 24-7 is telling enough, and the only team to beat the Netherlands were the rivals, Germany. Netherlands did however get their revenge there too, as they won the second meeting, 2-4 in Hamburg, after four goals in the last 30 minutes of the match.

While the qualification itself does not prove that the Netherlands are back to full glory, they have also managed to reach the Nations League finals in 2019, and all signs are pointing in the right direction.

The Netherlands will be a force to be reckoned with during EURO 2020/2021, that much should be clear. With defensive giants such as Nathan Aké, Stefan de Vrij, Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt under Frank de Boer we should expect a top class defence. That is not to say the offense isn’t there however. The new midfield marshal, Frenkie de Jong, will be accompanied by Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum and many others for an explosive attacking force too. The Netherlands look very interesting on paper, and it’s no accident they belong to the favourites to make a deep run in EURO 2020/2021. One thing is guaranteed - Johan Cruyff Arena will be cooking in June, as the Netherlands return to where they belong.

UPDATE: The Netherlands have like all other teams been involved in the World Cup qualifiers, and have played a couple of friendlies ahead of EURO 2020/2021:

  • Turkey 4-2 Netherlands (WC qualifier)
  • Netherlands 2-0 Latvia (WC qualifier)
  • Gibraltar 0-7 Netherlands (WC qualifier)
  • Netherlands 2-2 Scotland
  • Netherlands 3-0 Georgia

As much as we think there's potential in the Dutch team to go far, their results in 2021 have been shaky at best. The 4-2 loss away against Turkey is worrisome, and so is their 2-2 draw to Scotland in the preparing friendly. While the Dutch offense is shaping up well and delivering, there are certainly defensive aspects to work on. With a certain Frank de Boer on the bench that is rather surprising, and he has his job cut out for him if the Netherlands are to succeed at EURO 2020/2021.

Netherlands at EURO 2020/2021

If we are to mention one match as the best of EURO 2020 thus far, it's without a doubt Netherlands - Ukraine. After 0-0 at halftime a goal explosion awaited in the last 45 minutes of the match, which both showed Netherlands strength and weakness simultaneously. Wijnaldum and Weghorst put Amsterdam Arena in euphoria after their two goals in the 52nd and 58th minute respectively. That should have been good night for Ukraine, but Yarmolenko scored a real treat through a long shot in the 75th, just to have Yaremchuk equalize the match four minutes later.

The dramatic finish still ended with a Dutch triumph as Dumfries scored his first goal in the orange shirt to secure three points, and a great start to EURO 2020/2021. The Netherlands might have survived a scare, but they showed a great offensive threat against a well organized and defensive Ukraine. That's a good sign for things to come, but the defensive worries continue for Frank de Boer - what's the solution? Netherlands might need one fast against a dangerous Danish squad with loads of power in attack.

Austria - Overview & Facts

In the 2000’s Austria has participated in EURO 2008 and 2016, with zero appearances in the World Cup. While qualifying to the EURO’s twice is a good accomplishment, the results have not gone the way any Austrian would have wanted. Two points in total, with a goal differential of 2-7, is the total score from two tournament runs. The manager Franco Foda will want to change this record for the better for obvious reasons. If anything Austria might have their best shot at making the EURO playoffs ever this time around. While they are expected to take a beating in Amsterdam, the matches against Ukraine and North Macedonia are a different story.

If Austria bags three points in their opening game against North Macedonia they can play relaxed against the Netherlands. That could be a positive, but if points are dropped in the opener it could be as much of a negative. The good news is that Austria beat North Macedonia twice in the EURO 2020/2021 qualifiers, and should as such walk in confident for that game.

Qualification itself was not an issue for Austria, who had a five point margin to spare, while trailing dominant Poland by six points. 19 goals scored in 10 games while having conceded nine sounds good on paper, but considering the competition the goal scoring department was lacking. Moreover, Austria had a 6-0 game against Latvia, which kind of highlights the other nine games even more. Can Austria’s defence make life troublesome for the Netherlands? Without a doubt. Will their offense be able to crack the home team? Not in a million years.

David Alaba is once again the massive star of the Austrian team, that’s no secret. There are however quite a few other well known players backing him up. Marcel Sabitzer, Konrad Laimer, Martin Hinteregger and quite a few more are solid pieces for Foda to work with. The problem? They are all defensive strengths, not offensive ones. The situation is simple - Austria needs to park the bus in Amsterdam and put their hopes to that, and only that.

UPDATE: Let's take a look at how Austria has been shaping up in the months ahead of EURO 2020/2021:

  • Scotland 2-2 Austria (WC qualifier)
  • Austria 3-1 Faroe Islands (WC qualifier)
  • Austria 0-4 Denmark (WC qualifier)
  • England 1-0 Austria
  • Austria 0-0 Slovakia

The WC qualification could have started better for Austria, but it has not been all too bad either. A draw against Scotland away is not the end of the world, but a 0-4 loss to Denmark at home kind of is. While the Danes are red hot it was unexpected to see Austria crumble that hard defensively. Then again, the good sign is that the team only allowed one against England, and kept a clean sheet against Slovakia. Defence is likely to be the strength as expected, but the issues of scoring will more than likely trip this Austrian team, although they should still be able to beat North Macedonia in this opening match.

Austria at EURO 2020/2021

Austria got off to a great start in their opening match against North Macedonia in Bucharest, Romania. Stefan Lainer opened the scoring after just 18 minutes with a volley from a great cross into the box. While North Macedonia managed to utilize a goalkeeper mistake from Bachmann, and score 1-1 through Goran Pandev, Austria would go on to control the match quite clearly. Still, it took until the 78th minute before Franco Foda could finally put his arms in the air, as Michael Gregoritsch scored the crucial 2-1 goal.

The Austrian veteran, Marko Arnautovic, eventually punctured the game with his 3-1 goal in the 89th minute and secured three historical points for Austria, who had never won a match in a European championship. The victory was well deserved even if North Macedonia had a few good chances to take the lead. As Austria now moves on to play the Netherlands, a much more defensive approach need to be applied, but this is also where Austria can shine. With three points in the bag, Franco Foda and his men can play relaxed and give their best to snatch one point in Amsterdam.

Netherlands vs Austria Head - to - Head Analysis

Netherlands and Austria have a rich history between each other with 18 meetings since 1933. Netherlands leads the results with 8-4-6 in their favour, but the more recent times are what sticks out. In six meetings since 1990, the Netherlands have won them all, with the latest match being from a friendly in 2016. These head to head results don’t necessarily say much about how EURO 2020/2021 might play out, but everything is pointing in the way of the Netherlands, and so is the H2H.
