SEE HERE WHO IS THE FAVORITE IN THE MATCH!
Start of the meeting.
The Netherlands will face the Czech Republic in the eighth-final clash of Euro 2020, which will be played from 19:00 at the Puskas Arena in Budapest. Frank de Boer’s team has been declared the favorite, but the Czechs are a tough opponent and have proven it with their game so far.
In Group C, the Netherlands finished with a total of 9 points and 8 goals scored – the most of all so far. The Oranges beat Ukraine (3: 2), Austria (2: 0) and Northern Macedonia (3: 0).
Yaroslav Shilhavi’s team qualified for the round of 16 as one of the 4 best third teams. He started with a victory over Scotland (2: 0), then made 1: 1 with Croatia, and in his last match lost to England (0: 1), but this did not prove fatal.

Since becoming an independent country, the Czech Republic has never been eliminated in the round of 16 of the European Championships. After the final in 1996, the team always stumbled one step earlier than the previous championship: the semifinals in 2004 and the quarterfinals in 2012. Ambitions are now a negative trend to be broken, which means that the Czechs must overcome the Netherlands.
The Dutch have not recorded 4 consecutive victories in the European finals since 2000, when Frank de Boer was part of the team. After this period, the “tulips” can only boast a quarterfinal in 2008, which is too little for the claims of local fans. De Boer has come under constant criticism for imposing the 3-4-2-1 system instead of the traditional 4-3-3 for the Orange, but at this stage the results are in his favor.
The dilemma for the Dutch coach is whether to put on top of the attack Vaut Weghorst or Daniel Malen, who is said to be a transfer target for Liverpool. Martin de Roon is expected to return to the starting 11 after receiving a break against Northern Macedonia. The most serious hopes are placed on Memphis Depay and the great leader of the team Georgino Vainaldum. Frankie de Jong is also among the most important in the team.

The Czechs will be without left back Jan Boril, who has been penalized for accumulating cards. His place will be taken by Ales Mateu. No other changes are expected. The author of three goals from the beginning of the championship Patrick Schick will act in front positions, supported by Jakub Jankto, Vladimir Darida and Lukasz Masopust. A pair of inside midfielders will be Thomas Sucek and Alex Kral.
The Netherlands and the Czech Republic created one of the most memorable matches of Euro 2004, when the “orange” took the lead with 2: 0, but lost with 2: 3. The last match between them, played in October 2015, ended with the same result in favor of the Czechs.
