Netherlands are playing in their first European Championship since the 2012 tournament when they went out at the group stage. They will be hoping to avoid a repeat of that performance and a win in this game will go a long way to securing their place in the round of 16. The Dutch qualified for this tournament by finishing second in their qualifying group to Germany.
We have to guard against underestimating Ukraine. They were in the same qualifying pool as Portugal and won it. We know how hard it is to beat Portugal, and luckily they are not in our group.

Netherlands won 6 of their 8 matches in qualifying which included an excellent 4-2 away win in Germany. However, their only defeat in the group actually came at home against the same opponents with the other dropped points coming in a 0-0 draw at Northern Ireland.
Nonetheless, Netherlands have a strong record when playing at home. They have won most of their last matches on home soil including a very good 2-0 win over France in the Nations League. Netherlands reached the finals of the Nations League, defeating England in the semi-final which will give them confidence they can go far in this tournament.
The betting odds for Netherlands vs Ukraine have the hosts as the clear favourites to win the match. Continue below for more Netherlands vs Ukraine tips and predictions as we take a look at the chances of the latter.
2. Ukraine vs Netherlands Outsiders
Since playing as Ukraine from the 1996 European Championship onwards, the nation has struggled to become a regular participant at the tournament. The only previous occasion on which they have actually qualified for the European Championship was in 2016 and they were eliminated from the competition in the group stage.
Ukraine also played in the 2012 European Championship but did so as one of the host nations and again they failed to progress from the group stage. However, Ukraine will be hoping to make history in this tournament by reaching the knockout stages for the first time having enjoyed a strong qualifying campaign. Ukraine finished above Portugal and Serbia in what was a difficult qualifying group. They remained undefeated throughout the campaign, winning 6 and drawing 2 of their 8 games including a 5-0 home win over Serbia and 2-1 home win over Portugal.
Ukraine will be hoping they can carry over their form from the qualifiers into Euro 2020 but could not have asked for a much tougher start to the tournament. Having previously played 6 matches at the European Championship in their history, Ukraine have managed to win just one game. They have also failed to beat the Dutch in the two meetings to date and therefore it is little surprise to see the Netherlands vs Ukraine odds at high price for a Ukraine win. Read on for more Ukraine vs Netherlands betting predictions.
3. Netherlands vs Ukraine Predictions
Netherlands managed to score plenty of goals in qualifying for the 2020 European Championship but clean sheets were not always as easy to come by. The Dutch conceded goals against Germany, Northern Ireland and Belarus. Ukraine will believe they are stronger than both Northern Ireland and Belarus and therefore should find the back of the net in this game.
Ukraine scored 17 goals in their 8 qualifying games and even if they go on to lose this game, they should cause the Dutch problems at the back. The odds for Ukraine vs Netherlands offer a nice price for Netherlands to win and both teams to score.

However, we should not expect a high scoring game as Ukraine will be concentrating mostly on trying to keep out the Dutch attack. You can back a 2-1 win for Netherlands at attractive odds with most of the bookies.
