Group D

One of the most attractive groups of this European Championship consists of two superpowers of European football in France and the Netherlands. Two of the world's biggest talent producers have been battling it out for top five status in the UEFA coefficient in recent years, with Ligue 1 pulling out of the Eredivisie last season. However, the French and Dutch face two tough sides: Ralf Rangnick's Austria and Poland with some quality pieces despite their general inability to translate that performance on paper into results on the pitch. Almost everyone will expect Les Bleus and Oranje to advance as the top two here, but in what order is yet to be determined and both will know they cannot afford to make a mistake against the Austrians or the Poles.

Team news

Poland: Arkadiusz Milik's threat will be a miss, especially with Lewandowski now in, while Karol Linetty has fallen out of favor along with Tomasz Kedziora and Matty Cash. Lewandowski will of course be captain when fit and will be joined by regulars Wojciech Szczesny, Kamil Grosicki and Piotr Zielinksi, all of whom are approaching the 100 cap mark that Lewandowski has long since surpassed. However, it has been confirmed that the Barca man is after this, so expect to see Krzysztof Piatek more prominently. Moreover, only three of the players chosen by Probierz practice their profession in their home country.

Possible Poland XI: Szczesny; Bednarek, Dawidowicz, Kiwior; Frankowski, Piotrowski, Slisz, Zielinski, Zalewski; Swiderski, Piatek.

The Netherlands: The big news for Koeman in the run-up to this match is the loss of both Frenkie de Jong and Teun Koopmeiners to injury in midfield, while Marten de Roon is also injured and Jurrien Timber has been absent from any action for a long time. Bologna's Joshua Zirkzee is also out despite looking fantastic at club level in Serie A, but is not injured like AFC Ajax's Steven Berghuis, who is not far from the 50-cap mark. Sven Botman is absent for a long time due to an injury operation and therefore has yet to play for the Dutch team at senior level.

Possible Netherlands XI: Bridge; Dumfries, De Vrij, Van Dijk, Aké; Reijnders, Schouten, Veerman; Simon, Depay, Gakpo.

Prediction

Although this match is somewhat stripped of star power now that there is no De Jong or Lewandowski anymore, it should still be a quality encounter, with the Dutch outpacing their Polish counterparts by a goal or so. Choose: Poland 1, Netherlands 2.
