North Macedonia v Netherlands Match Preview & Trends

A Chance for squad members to get valuable minutes?

With both sides knowing their future in the tournament ahead of this final group game, we may see some experimentation from the coaches in terms of the starting line-ups. The Netherlands are already confirmed as group winners with their two previous Group C wins and Ronald De Boer may take the opportunity to freshen his team up with some new faces. Likewise, North Macedonia may want to blood some youngsters and give them some international experience on the big stage.

Two players who will definitely want to play and not be rested are Memphis Depay and Goran Pandev. It was announced this week that Depay would be joining Barcelona next season a free transfer following the culmination of his contract with Lyon. Having scored in the last game, Memphis will want to continue his momentum and show his new supporters what they can look forward to seeing at the Nou Camp. Pandev at the age of 38 may never play at this level again and it could well be an international swansong for the long-serving talisman.

North Macedonia covered 209.4km in the opening two rounds and have maintained a passing accuracy of 78% and averaging 44% possession. The Macedonians have made 52 passes into the attacking third with 30 of those in key areas. They have completed 3/18 crosses, which left them at 17%. In comparison, The Netherlands has covered 209.8km in the first two games, maintaining a passing accuracy of 86% and averaged 55% possession. The Dutch made 92 passes into the attacking third with 61 of those in key areas. They completed 4/20 crosses, which left them at 20%.
