Storylines

Netherlands:

Frank de Boer's men nearly threw away a 2-0 lead as Ukraine temporarily pulled level, but they ultimately came through to win and are now favorites to go on and top the group. Oranje will need to tighten up defensively after Roman Yaremchuk's headed effort, but there was no stopping Andriy Yarmolenko's blockbuster. If they can maintain their current scoring rate, they should be fine.

Austria:

Marko Arnautovic is in hot water for his celebration against North Macedonia, but David Alaba and the Germany-based contingent's early form will have encouraged Franco Foda. With the Netherlands and Ukraine to come, Austria are arguably about to face their toughest test in this group stage. Like their Dutch hosts, though, they should make it through if they can remain this prolific.

Prediction

An entertaining score draw with plenty of goals. Pick: Netherlands 2-2 Austria.
