Netherlands will host Austria on June 17 at 8 PM CET at Johan Cruyff Arena, also previously called Amsterdam Arena, and both teams will be doing their best to win three precious points ahead of the last fixture. Winning this match would guarantee the qualification without having to lose a lot of energy and concentration in the last group stage match. And this is a big motive for the Netherlands and Austria since they both won in their opening games.
Netherlands however will try to avoid the scenario that happened against Ukraine which could have costed them the match since they conceded two goals at a delicate time before adding the third one to secure their victory. They will be relying on the services of Frenkie de Jong, Marten de Roon and Georginio Wijnaldum to create chances, link midfield to attack and support the attackers continuously in order to threaten Austria’s defensive line.
At the same time, Memphis Depay, Wout Weghorst, Luuk de Jong and the rest of the attacking players will need to be ready to exploit all the chances that they get since missing chances during such a decisive game could cost the team a lot. Moreover, Austria will most probably defend well to not allow Netherlands to get numerous dangerous chances.
Austria will try to confirm their convincing performance against North Macedonia which allowed them to win 3-1 and against the Netherlands they will need much more efforts to disturb their opponents’ organized defense. Although it wouldn’t be easy to beat the likes of Stefan de Vrij, Daley Blind and Jurrien Timber, Austria has got what it takes to threaten these defensive players and reach Maarten Stekelenburg’s goal.
David Alaba, Marcel Sabitzer, Marko Arnautović, Christoph Baumgartner, Saša Kalajdžić and Stefan Lainer will be the key attacking players who can create the difference and score goals for Austria. But at the same time, defending against the Netherlands will be even more complicated than scoring goals, since the latter have some excellent attacking players.
