Why you should back North Macedonia

North Macedonia plays an aggressive style that many teams with its talent level wouldn't deploy. It doesn't shy away from attacking on the offensive side, and that puts pressure on opponents. That led manager Igor Angelovski to praise his side after an inspired effort against Ukraine. 

Beyond its style and the potential to disrupt any opponent, Goran Pandev is a significant factor. Pandev scored against Austria and is performing well. In addition, he is the all-time leading scorer for North Macedonia and Pandev is set to retire from national team play following the tournament. His teammates could be inspired to give their finest effort as a result.

Why you should back Netherlands

One of the more intriguing factors in this match is the lack of urgency, at least in the group table, for the Netherlands. Manager Frank de Boer, formerly of Atlanta United in the MLS, has interesting decisions to make as a result as he navigates how much to deploy his standout players. Still, the Netherlands is clearly the more talented side, as evidenced by its recent results and the market dynamics. 

The Dutch won the first two matches, ensuring the squad a place in the knockout stage. As such, there are chances to send some unsung players, headlined by Donyell Malen, Davy Klaasen and Luuk de Jong, into action. Netherlands did not play particularly well in the win over Ukraine, but seemingly found its stride in a nice victory over Austria.
