Why the Netherlands Will Win

The Netherlands looked lost for the majority of its showdown with France. Aside from a few chances, the Dutch were clearly outmatched. The Netherlands finished with eight shots, four of which hit the target. Also, the pass accuracy was at 88 percent, displaying how well the Dutch passed it to one another. But the Netherlands struggled with possession. Sadly, the Dutch only held a 42 percent possession rate.

Cody Gapko was quiet, generating just one shot attempt. Likewise, Memphis had two shots, while Simons finished with one. Jeremie Frimpong finished with two shots, including one on target. While there were numerous chances, the skilled players could not get past the French and were unable to punch one in.

The defense was not efficient, generating a 43 percent tackle rate. Regardless, it did enough to not allow a goal. Goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen only had to make three saves to preserve this one.

The Netherlands will cover the spread if they can get their forwards and midfielders going with good passes to set up better scoring chances. Then, they need to avoid melting down against Austria.

Why Austria Will Win

Austria started strong in their second match, getting the early lead. Then, after allowing Poland to tie it, they bounced back. Austria finished with 14 total shots, including nine on target. Likewise, they were accurate on 86 percent of the passes they attempted. Having a 56 percent possession rate also helped them thrive. Additionally, they were staunch on defense, with a 52 percent tackle rate. The only issues they encountered were two offsides and two yellow cards.

Arnautovic played well, netting in one of the goals. Ultimately, it was a good bounce-back after a nonexistent performance in the first match. Baumgartner delivered one goal on his only shot. Meanwhile, Marcel Sabitzer took four shots on goal. Prass was awesome with crisp passing to set up one of the goals.

But the defense was the true hero in this one. Amazingly, Philipp Lienhart finished with 11 tackles and eight clears, while Stefan Posch had 16 tackles and four clears, which puts him at 34 over two matches. Mwene was a force on offense and defense, with an assist on one side, five tackles, and a clear on the other. Trauner delivered a goal on two shots with eight tackles on the defensive side. Overall, the defense did enough to protect goalkeeper Patrick Penze, who made two saves while allowing one goal.

Austria will cover the spread if the defense can continue to play stingy. Then, they need their goalscorers to get them the lead early and prevent the Netherlands from gaining any momentum.

Final Netherlands-Austria Prediction & Pick

The Netherlands could have beaten France. Unfortunately, the referees did not agree about the goal. It probably ruined the momentum and destroyed any chances of grabbing a win. Luckily, it did not cost them the match, and the Dutch managed to survive. The Netherlands are the better squad on paper. But can they show it on the field? We believe they will. Take the Netherlands to win this match and seal their ticket to the next round.
