Netherlands have been fun to watch at Euro 2020 and should prove too classy for the Czech Republic in Budapest, judged on the evidence seen so far.
The Dutch have proven performers in key areas and a highly-promising supporting cast is helping them to play with plenty of self-belief.
We’re going with 6/4 for Holland to win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our first Netherlands vs Czech Republic prediction.
A Look At Netherlands’ Betting Odds
Netherlands had to survive a few scares when edging out Ukraine 3-2 but were then comfortable victors in their next two matches.
Austria were beaten 2-0 and North Macedonia brushed aside 3-0, with all their games taking place in Amsterdam.
Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay have been the star players, netting three times and twice respectively.
“I feel a special connection with Memphis,” said former Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum, who will switch to PSG next season.
“We have played for a really long period together, first at PSV and then in the Dutch team, so there is a connection.
“But I don’t think it’s only Memphis and me, I think there are more players who can make a difference.”
PSV wing-back Denzel Dumfries has definitely impressed while Barcelona playmaker Frenkie de Jong is also on song.
Frank de Boer seems to have faith in Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst doing the business up front and he has been consistent in the Bundesliga for the past three seasons.
Looking at the Netherlands vs Czech Republic odds, we like 7/2 for the 28-year-old to break the deadlock here.
A Look At Czech Republic’s Betting Odds
Czech Republic will be pleased with how their Group D campaign panned out, starting with a 2-0 success versus Scotland at Hampden Park.
Holding Croatia to a 1-1 draw was another creditable effort, with Bayer Leverkusen striker Patrik Schick scoring all of the goals.
Head coach Jaroslav Silhavy admitted England’s pace got the better of them in a 1-0 Wembley loss but they were already through at that point.
“We qualified with a game to spare and competed against England for first place,” said Silhavy. “We have to look at it positively – we achieved what we wanted.”
Holland will have noted how uncomfortable the Czech defence looked when Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka were running at them, though.
However, the Dutch are prone to the odd lapse in concentration at the back, especially with Virgil van Dijk still missing.
Let’s finish off our Netherlands vs Czech Republic betting tips by taking 17/5 for the Oranje to oblige 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market.
