North Macedonia vs Netherlands: Team news & stats

Netherlands boss Frank de Boer has the license to change things around in his team ahead of the Round of 16. However, he mentioned before the game that he would make only two changes. One of them is likely to be midfielder Marten de Roon who picked up a yellow card against Austria and would be banned for the last 16 if he receives another. Ryan Gravenberch is expected to replace him while we could see Donyell Malen or Luuk de Jong replace Wout Weghorst in attack.

North Macedonia are unlikely to make huge changes to their team. However, there is a chance Darko Churlinov and Aleksandr Trajkovski replaces Stefan Spirovski and Boban Nikolov in the starting XI. 

Key stats:

  • The Netherlands have never lost against North Macedonia, winning two and drawing two of their four previous meetings.
  • In four previous meetings between North Macedonia and the Netherlands, North Macedonia haven’t led for a single minute in any game, and they are yet to go ahead in a match at the European Championships, scoring both of their goals when trailing.
  • The Netherlands have scored two or more goals in each of their last nine games in all competitions, their longest run since May 1935 (also nine in a row). They have never scored 2+ goals in 10 consecutive games in all competitions.
