Netherlands and Czech Republic are playing at Ferenc Puskas Arena in the Round of 16 in the Euro Cup 2021. Netherlands has improved their form greatly, and they are now undefeated in their last 7 games while being on a 4-game winning streak. After being at the top of their group ahead of round 3, Czech Republic sunk to 3rd place, but they still advanced to the next stage.
Netherlands was outstanding in the group stage with 3 wins, 8 scored goals, and only 2 conceded goals, and they have won their group. Netherlands was playing solid soccer on both ends, especially in their last game against North Macedonia. Netherlands has had 59% of ball possession in that game, 7 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. I know North Macedonia was probably the weakest team in this tournament, but Netherlands still played well, and they have won this match 0-3. Wijnaldum is now the leading goalscorer for Netherlands with 3 goals, while Depay and Dumfries added 2 goals each. Malen has 2 assists. Overall, Netherlands has done really well, and I didn’t believe they could, but they will need to keep it up if they want to get past this stage, and the stages after.
Czech Republic has done a decent job in the group stage, and they have done just enough to get through the group stage but getting further will be really hard for them. Czech Republic ended the group stage with 4 points, 3 scored goals, and 2 conceded goals, and they ended up in 3rd place. Schick is the only goalscorer for Czech Republic with 3 goals, while Coufal added 1 assist. In their latest game against England, Czech Republic has had 44% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 4 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. After conceding a goal in the 12th minute, Czech Republic was playing well, and they created a few decent chances, but their offense just wasn’t good enough to score a goal. Czech Republic has lost this match 0-1. There are no injuries in Czech Republic at this time. There are a few good players in this team, and they proved they can play decent soccer on both ends, but they will need their best game yet against a really good opponent.
The trends are actually on Czech Republic’s side in this matchup, but Netherlands is in great form, they are scoring a lot of goals. I think Czechs could score a goal here, and it will be a tense game for a while, but I Netherlands getting the upper hand here.
