The Netherlands are expected to reach the latter stages of the tournament and they’ve been drawn in a relatively kind group. However, Ukraine will be their toughest opponents, this is unlikely to be a walk in the park for the Oranje.
Frank de Boer has been largely unconvincing since leaving Ajax and his abrasive style of man-management isn’t for everyone. He’s been dealt a blow with Donny Van de Beek being forced to leave the squad due to injury.
Matthijs de Ligt is also touch and go for this fixture and they may be left short-handed at the back. Ukraine have picked up some notable results including a 1-1 draw with France and a 1-0 win over Spain.
They won’t be easy opponents and have a number of talented players in their squad. With just four goals conceded during qualifying and having claimed four points from a possible six against Portugal, they won’t be overawed by the Netherlands.Ukraine - Draw No Bet - 19/5 Paddy Power
