Netherlands vs Turkey Preview


The Dutch team delivered one of the standout performances in the round of 16. Unlike France, England, Portugal, and even Germany, the Netherlands displayed a well-structured game with strong positional attacks.

Cody Gakpo and Xavi Simons excelled on the left flank. Gakpo played wide, keeping right-back Andrei Rațiu occupied and stretching the Romanian defense, while Xavi Simons operated in the left half-space behind the Romanian midfielders. This strategy allowed the Netherlands to consistently launch dangerous attacks from the left flank.

On the right, Steven Bergwijn, Memphis Depay, and Denzel Dumfries formed a dynamic trio. The Netherlands continuously broke through the Romanian defense at a fast pace, causing confusion among Romania’s players.

If Ronald Koeman’s team can replicate this powerful attacking display in the next match, it will be incredibly challenging for Turkey to progress to the next stage.

Despite making numerous defensive mistakes in all four matches of this tournament, the Turkish national team managed to advance to the top eight teams in Europe.

After the group stage matches, Vincenzo Montella realized that his team needed a more solid defensive performance in the playoffs. Turkey could have conceded many more goals against Georgia and the Czech Republic, and without improving their defensive play, success seemed unlikely.

That’s why Montella changed from the 4-2-3-1 to a more defensive 5-2-3 formation, providing additional cover for the flank defenders from the center-backs. Nevertheless, Turkey still had three players in attack to create and finish counterattacks.

In the first half, Austria hardly created any chances, while Turkey launched a fast attack in the first minute, leading to a corner kick from which they scored the opening goal. The Austrians struggled to press the Turks and failed to capitalize on quick transitions from defense to attack.

However, the situation changed dramatically in the second half. Austria attacked more dynamically and with more variety, often exploiting the center and creating numerical advantages over the Turkish central midfielders with dangerous passes and shots on target.

Ralf Rangnick’s team greatly improved their positional structure, utilizing clever openings between the opponents’ lines, passes from deep behind the backs of the Turkish center-backs, and regular crosses from both flanks.

Montella switched the formation to 5-4-1, but it didn’t significantly help Turkey. The Turkish center-backs regularly lost aerial duels in their own penalty area and surprisingly conceded only one goal, thanks in part to Austria’s poor finishing and the excellent play of Mert Günok.

Turkey may struggle with their defensive play against the Netherlands’ formidable attacks. Nevertheless, in the match against Austria, the Turks displayed their attacking potential and were particularly strong on corner kicks.

Notably, Turkey had three significant opportunities after a corner kick to the near post, where Merih Demiral, with the help of two teammates, posed a threat to the opponents’ goal. Ultimately, Demiral’s efforts allowed Turkey to qualify for the Euro 2024 quarter-finals.

Merih Demiral’s absence due to a UEFA suspension will significantly weaken the defensive line and Turkey’s play on corner kicks.

Netherlands vs Turkey Player Focus

Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Arda Güler are undoubtedly Turkey’s key players. Güler and Çalhanoğlu are adept at moving the ball into the other half and taking deadly shots from various positions. They could chinks in the armor of the Netherlands’ central midfielders, who struggle to read the game effectively and often make tackles in the holding area.

For the Netherlands, their success in the next match will hinge on their ability to convert chances, as Turkey’s advancement to the quarter-finals was largely due to their opponents’ inability to punish defensive lapses.

Cody Gakpo, already on three goals at Euro 2024, will likely find himself in promising one-on-one situations against susceptible Turkish defenders. His clinical finishing will be pivotal for the Netherlands’ hopes, especially considering the other players’ struggles in finding the back of the net.

Xavi Simons, who delivered a standout performance against Romania, will be instrumental once more. His knack for weaving through the lines and delivering incisive passes into the penalty area will be key to unlocking Turkey’s defense.

Netherlands vs Turkey Preview, Tactical Analysis

In tactical terms, Turkey may play open-attacking football against the Netherlands. If Vincenzo Montella decides to go this route, he will most likely employ a 4-2-3-1 formation and rely on attacking through the center, where the Netherlands lack a top-class defensive midfielder.

However, this approach might leave Turkey too vulnerable in defense against the Netherlands’ attacks, both in the central zone and on the flanks. This is because Koeman’s team, in a 4-3-3 attacking formation, will have a numerical advantage in the 3v2 center over the Turkish midfielders, alongside individual class advantages on the flanks.

Netherlands vs Turkey Prediction

  • Football Pick: Total Netherlands Over 1.5 
  • Odds: 1.66 (22Bet)
  • Score prediction: Netherlands 2-1 Turkey

Turkey has allowed too many chances in this tournament and they are unlikely to withstand the relentless Dutch attack, especially considering the suspension of Merih Demiral. 

Despite their occasional problems with finishing, the Dutch will likely find the back of the net enough times to secure their spot in the next stage of Euro 2024.

Netherlands vs Turkey Prediction, Betting Tip

  • Football Pick: Netherlands to win
  • Odds: 1.58 (22Bet)

While the Netherlands may face defensive challenges in this match, most UEFA EURO 2024 predictions still favour them as the more likely side to clinch the victory.
