The Netherlands set a perfect record after three group stage matches at Euro 2021. But how good is the color orange? Is it enough to win everything? Knockout will reveal.
The Dutch defeated North Macedonia, Austria and Ukraine on their way to the Round of 16, but these teams weren’t exactly elite. Every team match was played at home in Amsterdam. In fact, the sportsbooks did not put Frank de Boer’s team in the top five countries that could win the Euro 2021 championship.
Successful wins at Puskas Arena in Budapest against the Czechs who came close to England (1-0) and Croatia (1-1) could defeat even more unsure skeptics of the Netherlands. The men’s team made a comeback after failing to qualify for the 2016 and 2018 FIFA Euros.
Meanwhile, the Czech national team plays with its own money after leaving the group. Their formula includes a compact, structured tactical structure that allows their superstar to advance to create competition-defining plays. Patrick Schick took charge of making the difference in these matches with three goals, making him one of the superstars.
The winner of this competition will be more than the semi-finals, as the Danish black horse awaits before the quarter-finals.

Can Memphis Depay carry the Dutch?
Deby, 27, is said to be a prominent player in world football, topped the list of $38 million in fees transferred from PSV Eindhoven to Manchester United in 2015. But he moved to French club Lyon in 2017 during his time in the UK, Where his star shines again. Now he is ready to join the Spanish giants Barcelona this summer and he is back in his national team as a great player.
Depuy has two goals and two assists in Euro 2021, the reference point for the Dutch attack. His shots are unexpectedly sharp, and his individual ability has undermined the opponent’s defenses. If he’s at his game and gets his touches, Orange fans will feel better about their chances. But you can also be sure that checkers has its own game plan.
Czech without a leader
Czech captain and midfielder Vladimir Tarida is reported to have missed the team’s last training session. John on the left was also suspended from the fight.
Midfielder Tarida, who plays for Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga, is a big loss for the Checkers. His absence upsets the balance of the team. In the middle of his team’s center, West Ham’s Tomas Soucek must make big strides by eliminating Tarida. This is the kind of Suzuki the Czech Republic needs in this game: players who are ready to run and hunt all day long. This also applies to striker Patrick Schick.
The Czech people will not give in to the illusion that they can walk on an equal footing with the Dutch. The position of the Czech Republic should come first with regard to security. The team is awarded the lowest number of scores it can score (2.4 goals in the three group matches without penalty).
Here are the starting lines announced by both teams for the match:
Holland (5-3-2, left to right): Morton Stecklenburg-GK – Patrick von Anhold, Daily Blind, Matisse de Ligt, Stephen de Vrij, Denzel Dumfries – Frankie de Jong, Georgino, Wenold, Morton de Ron – Tony Malone, Memphis Deboy
Czech Republic (4-2-3-1, left to right): Thomas Vaclik-GK – Pavel Kadirbek, Thomas Kallas, Ondrej Silostka, Vladimir Koval – Thomas Sosik, Thomas Holz – Peter Sevcik, Antonin Baruk, Lukas Masopast – Patrik Schick
Czech Republic Contradictions Vs. Holland and forecast
There is history between these two teams, and the Czech Republic are a big reason why the Netherlands failed to qualify for the 2016 European Championships. Prototypes are sure to be hoping that the Czech Republic can make another decision on neutral ground in Budapest.
The Czech people are a hardworking and conservative side that will sit deep and give in with little to no defense. Expect them to impose physical style on the quietly passing Dutchmen, trying to break out of the rhythm they want. Active sports are suitable for the disadvantaged.
The Czech Republic will ensure that this is an exciting match, and it will be determined by one or two important moments that define the balance. But if the Netherlands somehow score early, things get ugly. It can be useful to watch the first 10-15 minutes, then see if there are still “less than 2.5 goals” available with attractive prospects.
