Netherlands vs Austria: Euro 2024 prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h, odds today

Group D wraps up tonight with Netherlands and Austria going toe-to-toe in Berlin.

A place in the last-16 of Euro 2024 is already secure for the Dutch, having followed their opening 2-1 win over Poland secured by Wout Weghorst’s dramatic late winner in Hamburg last weekend with a hard-fought goalless draw against fellow European heavyweights France in Leipzig on Friday night.

Xavi Simons had a goal controversially ruled out in the second half of that otherwise tame affair and they must now better France’s result against Poland to top the group.


As for Austria, their superior goal difference over Group A’s third-placed team Hungary means they only need avoid a heavy defeat to secure a place in the knockouts.

Ralf Rangnick’s side have enjoyed an impressive start to the tournament themselves, being narrowly edged out by France in Dusseldorf only by virtue of an unfortunate own goal before a rousing 3-1 win over Poland in Berlin on Friday ignited their last-16 hopes.

Netherlands vs Austria is scheduled for a 5pm BST kick-off time today, Tuesday June 25, 2024.

Netherlands vs Austria prediction

The Netherlands should be very wary of Austria, who have impressed in both games so far in Group D despite their narrow loss to France.

Under former Manchester United interim boss Rangnick, who recently rejected Bayern Munich to stay in his current post, they are ultra-intense and extremely aggressive, pressing relentlessly from the first whistle until the last.

This is a very disciplined and well-drilled Austria unit who are seemingly able to sustain their sheer intensity and high energy levels throughout the 90 minutes, chomping at the bit to spring an upset after ensuring Poland were the first team to officially exit the competition.

The Netherlands, though, were dominant against Poland and struggled to finish their glut of chances before being possibly unlucky not to have beaten France with that Simons controversy.

This is all set up to be a fascinating and highly watchable contest between two good sides with designs on making noise in the knockouts.

Draw, 1-1.

Head to head (h2h) history and results
