class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Oranje have been in superb scoring form in recent months and Goal is backing that run to continue this weekend in their last-16 clash at Euro 2020
Netherlands face Czech Republic at the Puskas Arena on Sunday afternoon in the last-16 of Euro 2020, with Frank de Boer’s men clear favourites to progress to the quarter-finals.
The Dutch finished top of their group with three wins from their three matches and are the top scorers in the tournament, having managed eight goals.
Jaroslav Silhavy’s side, meanwhile, made it through to the knockout stages as one of the best third-placed nations thanks to a win over a Scotland and a draw against Croatia.

Netherlands vs Czech Republic Team News
Striker Luuk de Jong has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament with a knee injury, although the Sevilla forward had only featured for 10 minutes in the competition for the Netherlands.
The Czechs have no major injury concerns heading into the game.
Netherlands vs Czech Republic Preview
While question marks remain over the Netherlands’ defensive solidity, their firepower up-front remains impressive.
De Boer’s men have scored at least twice in each of their last 10 matches in all competitions and their eight goals at Euro 2020 have come from four different players, with Gini Wijnaldum responsible for three strikes.
The Netherlands should be be confident of continuing their strong scoring form this weekend considering Czech Republic have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight matches, and conceded four goals against Italy in a friendly earlier this month as well as twice against Estonia in a World Cup qualifier in March.
Netherlands vs Czech Republic Tips and Predictions
The Dutch are priced at 4/5 (1.80) to score over 1.5 goals which looks like an excellent option, given their record in the final third this year and in Euro 2020.
