The Netherlands earned their spot in the final 16 of the Euros on Thursday night after they flexed their muscles against Austria in Amsterdam. Goals from Memphis Depay and Denzel Dumfries secured the three points for Frank de Boer’s side on Thursday, however, they prevailed without even getting out of first gear.
As a result of the victory for the Netherlands on Thursday, North Macedonia’s time in the competition will come to its conclusion on Monday in Amsterdam. Having lost their opening two games in Group C, the tournament debutants will be looking to make the most of their final 90 minutes against the Dutch.
Having already won Group C, De Boer will have a big decision to make ahead of Monday’s game in how heavily he rotates his squad. The Dutch will face a team that qualifies as one of the best third-placed sides, so they will certainly have their eyes on progressing deep into the tournament.
Going into this summer’s tournament there were certainly question marks as to how far De Boer’s men will be able to go. The early signs have been positive having won both of their opening two games but another clean sheet on Monday will certainly add to the confidence around the men in orange after conceding twice against Ukraine on their opening night.

North Macedonia vs Netherlands: Match Stats
The Netherlands have made a dominant start to this summer’s European Championship and their attacking threat with Memphis Depay leading the line has proven too much for both the Ukraine and Austria so far. In their most recent game against Austria, De Boer’s men opened the scoring through Depay inside the opening 15 minutes and we expect another quick start on Monday.
North Macedonia vs Netherlands: Corner Stats
In neither of their opening two games have the Netherlands recorded over five corners. Despite dominating in their victory over Austria on Thursday, De Boer’s men only totalled two corners throughout the entirety of the game.
In North Macedonia’s opening two games they have also not been able to record over five corners in a game with their opening game proving fruitless in terms of corners after not taking one corner at all.
North Macedonia vs Netherlands: Cards Stats
