Netherlands vs Turkey: Dutch take on underdogs Turkey in Euro Cup quarterfinals

All UEFA Euro 2024 matches will be live-streamed on the SonyLIV app and website

The Netherlands and Turkey will battle for a spot in the Euro 2024 semi-finals at Berlin’s iconic Olympiastadion on Saturday evening. The winner of the Netherlands vs Turkey clash will face either Switzerland or England in the final four.

Netherlands vs Turkey Preview

Despite an unconvincing start to their Euro 2024 campaign, the Netherlands have secured a place in the quarter-finals. After being handed a relatively favourable last-16 tie against Romania, the Oranje secured a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Turkey, on the other hand, has been one of the tournament’s most entertaining teams, with all four of their matches featuring at least three goals. They finished second in Group F with wins over Georgia and the Czech Republic before surprising many by knocking out dark horses Austria in the last 16.

Ronald Koeman is expected to field a similar lineup on Saturday, with Bart Verbruggen in goal and Virgil van Dijk captaining the side from centre-back. However, Steven Bergwijn was substituted at halftime due to an injury, so either Jeremie Frimpong or Donyell Malen could partner with Denzel Dumfries on the right flank. Up front, Liverpool forward Cody Gakpo, who has scored three goals in four Euro 2024 appearances, and Memphis Depay, who is just four goals shy of Robin van Persie’s all-time Oranje, are expected to start.

Turkey will welcome back their captain Hakan Calhanoglu, but they will be without two key midfielders due to suspension, Orkun Kokcu, and Ismail Yuksek. Additionally, it remains uncertain whether Merih Demiral will face sanctions from UEFA for his controversial celebrations, so Samet Akaydin is set to fill in at the back.

Netherlands Predicted XI: 

Verbruggen; Dumfries, De Vrij, Van Dijk, Ake; Schouten, Reijnders; Malen, Simons, Gakpo; Depay
