NED vs AUT Dream11 Prediction Tips for Netherlands vs Austria Euro 2020 Live Score 18 June

Share

NED vs AUT Dream11 Prediction: Netherlands take on Austria in Group C of Euro 2020 on Thursday night. Both nations can play without too much pressure having made winning starts to their respective campaigns on Sunday. Netherlands, who have home advantage on their side at the Johan Cruijff Arena for all three of their group stage matches, secured a highly entertaining 3-2 victory over Ukraine on Sunday night. Austria enjoyed a fairly dramatic win of their own after sinking North Macedonia 3-1 to record their first ever victory at a European Championship.

NED vs AUT Dream11 Prediction

Neither of these two sides were totally convincing in their respective matches last Sunday, but having each won and netted three goals in the process, both will be in a positive state of mind heading into this clash at Johan Cruijff Arena. Austria will be confident they can take advantage of the defensive frailties shown by the Netherlands in their opening match, however Franco Foda’s men will have to be on their guard when taking into account the attacking prowess of the Dutch. Either way, a high scoring contest is expected here as was the case in the opening round of Group C fixtures.

Date: 18 June, Friday
Time: 12:30 AM (IST)
