Netherlands vs Austria: team news, head to head record and Probable starting xi
Matthijs de Ligt missed the first game because of a groin injury. Although he has returned to training it is very unlikely that De Boer will start him with more important matches yet to come. Despite a late scare against Ukraine, the 51-year-old might stick with the same team and formation for the upcoming match.
Netherlands possible starting lineup:
Stekelenburg; Timber, De Vrij, Blind; Dumfries, De Roon, De Jong, Wijnaldum, Van Aanholt; Depay, Weghorst
David Alaba will have to produce yet another match-winning performance if Austria stands any chance against the Dutch. Gregoritsch and Arnautovic had a huge impact on the game after coming in from the bench for Foda’s side. However, Arnautovic’s angry celebration has earned him a one-match ban from UEFA for “insulting another player”.
Austria possible starting lineup:
Bachmann; Dragovic, Alaba, Hinteregger; Lainer, Laimer, Schlager, Sabitzer, Ulmer; Baumgartner, Kalajdzic
Head to head:
The Netherlands and Austria have played 18 games against each other in the past. However, there is no one-sided domination against each other. The Dutch have won 8 games among 18, on the other hand, Austria has won 6 among 18. The other four occasions ended in a draw.
