Euro 2024 Betting Tips: Poland vs Holland

Euro 2024 Betting Tips: Poland vs Holland

Holland begin their Euro 2024 campaign against Poland on Sunday, June 16, at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg. The Dutch have been placed in a challenging Group D alongside pre-tournament favourites France, Austria and Sunday’s opponents, Poland. Despite the stiff competition, Holland should advance to the knockout phase.

A cloud of injuries hangs over both teams as they head into this encounter. Poland will be without talismanic striker Robert Lewandowski, their top scorer in European Championship history, due to a thigh injury sustained in a friendly against Turkey.

Lewandowski, scorer of five out of Poland’s 11 goals at the tournament, leaves manager Michał Probierz with a significant void in attack. The 35-year-old Barcelona star is also joined on the sidelines by defenders Matty Cash and Arkadiusz Milik, both of whom are missing the tournament through injury.

While the Dutch squad is also dealing with injuries, notably to midfielder Frenkie de Jong, manager Ronald Koeman has capable replacements in the form of PSV Eindhoven duo Jerdy Schouten and Joey Veerman. Veerman, in particular, could prove influential against Poland, especially considering he was the top player in key passes and finished with an impressive 17 assists in 29 Eredivisie matches last season.

Injury problems aside, the Dutch head into their Euro 2024 opener in excellent form, having won five of their last six matches. This strong run includes a commanding 4-0 victory over Iceland, with goals from Xavi Simons, Virgil van Dijk, Donyell Malen, and Wout Weghorst in their final warm-up game.

They also have the added advantage of Koeman’s wealth of experience. Koeman lifted the European Championship trophy as a player with the Netherlands in 1988 and will be aiming to replicate that feat as manager.

Interestingly, Germany also hosted the 1988 tournament.

Lewandowski’s absence means Poland’s attack loses its focal point and main source of goals. With fellow striker Milik also missing, it is hard to see where their goals will come from.

Holland, on the other hand, have Veerman offering creativity in de Jong’s absence and come into the game on the back of five wins in six games.

The Dutch are in excellent form, have the better players, and should have enough to beat Poland.
