Match preview

2021 International Friendly, Netherlands will play against with Scotland at home. In their last round of international fixtures in March, Netherlands kicked off their World Cup qualifying campaign with a disappointing 4-2 defeat to Turkey, as Burak Yilmaz netted a hat-trick before Hakan Calhanoglu added a fourth, and late goals from Davy Klaassen and Luuk de Jong were not enough to salvage a result. Oranje bounced back from that loss with two consecutive victories, firstly defeating Latvia 2-0 thanks to goals from Steven Berghuis and de Jong. Frank de Boer's side then recorded an eye-catching 7-0 win away against Gibraltar, as Memphis Depay netted a brace alongside goals from Berghuis, de Jong, Georginio Wijnaldum, Donyell Malen and Donny van de Beek. Having failed to qualify for Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup, Oranje will be hoping to make a strong return to major tournaments, as they head into Euro 2020 with a strong chance of making it out of the group stage. De Boer's men will look to add a third straight victory on Wednesday, as they aim to build confidence with their first group game coming in under two weeks. They take on a Scotland side who will also look to build towards the European Championships, as they head into their first major tournament in over 20 years. After a mixed qualification campaign in 2019, which ended with three straight victories, Scotland made the playoff round for Euro 2020, firstly taking on Israel.

That game finished goalless and went to a penalty shootout, and the Tartan Terriers progressed as Kenny McLean netted the winner after John McGinn, Callum McGregor, Scott McTominay and Lawrence Shankland had all scored from the spot. Steve Clarke's men then took on Serbia with a place in Euro 2020 at stake, and they looked to see out a 1-0 win thanks to Ryan Christie's opener before Luka Jovic took the game to extra time with a 90th-minute equaliser. The additional 30 minutes saw no further goals, resulting in a second consecutive penalty shootout, with goalkeeper David Marshall being the hero as he saved Aleksandar Mitrovic's penalty to book his side's spot in their first major tournament since 1998. In their last round of international fixtures, Scotland kicked off their World Cup qualifying campaign with draws against Austria and Israel, followed by a 4-0 victory over Faroe Islands, as McGinn netted a brace alongside goals from Che Adams and Ryan Fraser. They will now turn their attentions back to Euro 2020, as they aim to build confidence for the group stage with what would be a statement victory on Wednesday.
