On the other hand, Ukraine has not been that good as well. Although they have avoided defeats in recent times, they rarely seemed comfortable on the pitch. They have been undefeated in their last six games, but every game was very close and they were lucky at times to finish the match in a draw. Ukraine must try to avoid defeat in their opening game if they want to go through to the RO 16.

Netherlands vs Ukraine: team news, head to head record and Probable starting xi
Donny van de Beek’s groin injury caused the Manchester United midfielder to withdraw from the Netherlands squad. With Jasper Cillisen also ruled out of the Euro because of Covid-19, De Boer has a tough task ahead. The spine of their team Virgil Van Dijk is also unavailable because of an ACL injury he sustained against Everton last October. The only positive thing that happened in recent time is Memphis Depay has stepped up his game and scored crucial goals when the team needed. With the squad available De Boer might stick with his 3-5-2 formation.
Netherlands possible starting lineup:
Stekelenburg; Dumfries, De Ligt, De Vrij, Blind, Wijndal; De Roon, De Jong, Wijnaldum; Weghorst, Depay
Shevchenko has used a 4-3-3 formation recently, will he stick with the same formation against the Dutch is a big question. Although Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko plays a Left back role for his club, he plays in his preferred midfield position for his country.
Ukraine possible starting lineup:
Bushchan; Karavayev, Zabarnyi, Kryvtsov, Matviyenko, Mykolenko; Shaparenko, Sydorchuk, Zinchenko; Malinovskyi, Yaremchuk
