The Dutch eased to top spot in Group C with three wins out of three, while the Czechs finished as one of the best third placed teams.

Frank de Boer’s side are 4/6 favourites for the game with the Czechs at 9/2 in the full time result market. The Netherlands are 3/10 to qualify for the quarter-finals for the first time since 2008 with Patrik Schick and co hoping to emulate their Euro 2012 team by getting to the same stage at 12/5.

The Netherlands have been priced as seventh favourites at 9/1 to win the whole competition, while the Czechs are 80/1 but have heritage in the Euros by reaching the final in 1996.

De Boer has a selection headache about whether to start Memphis Depay, Donyell Malen or Wout Weghorst in a front two. Depay and Malen’s link-up against North Macedonia was superb and Depay is 11/10 in the anytime market with Malen at 11/8. Schick is 9/4 after three goals in the group stages.

Best bets: Gini Wijnaldum has had a super Euros so far with three goals and he’s 8/1 to carry on where he left off against North Macedonia and score first in this game.

Schick to score anytime and with a correct score of 1-1 is 22/1.

Given the Czechs are yet to concede more than one goal in a match, there’s a possibility they could take the Dutch to extra time.
