After throwing away a two-goal lead, Netherlands were lucky to go home with all three points in their opening match against Ukraine after they scored a late winner

The win ensured that their first game on their return to international football after missing out on the World Cup in 2018 did not end in shame. 

They will now aim to build on the win when they welcome early table-toppers Austria to Amsterdam. 

With the match set to be played in front of Dutch fans, Frank De Boer’s men will hope to record a more straightforward win to set them on top of Group C table as they look to win the group.

Possible line-ups 

Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt did not play against Ukraine and is still unlikely to be fit to play in this game. 

Maarten Stekelenburg, Matthijs de Ligt, Stefan de Vrij, Daley Blind, Denzel Dumfries, Marten de Roon, Georginio Wijnaldum, Frenkie de Jong, Patrick van Aanholt, Wout Weghorst, Memphis Depay.


After a 3-1 win over North Macedonia in the opening round, Austria have set the pace early in this group and are heading into round two top of the table. 

The win, which was their first-ever win at a major tournament since 1990 ensured that they enter the second round ahead of the Netherlands, based on goal difference. 

Their aim now is to remain there and they can achieve that by picking up at least a point from this game. A point will ensure that they can go into the last round of this stage with a chance of qualifying for the next round.

Possible line-ups 

Daniel Bachmann, Philipp Lienhart, David Alaba, Martin Hinteregger, Xaver Schlager, Stefan Lainer, Konrad Laimer, Marcel Sabitzer, Andreas Ulmer, Sasa Kalajdzic, Marko Arnautovic
