Uefa Euro 2020 football predictions, fixtures and results: Monday 21 June

Euro 2020 confirms its first knockout nations on Monday, as Group B and Group C both come to a climax across the continent.

The Netherlands face North Macedonia and are nailed on to progress, while Ukraine battle it out with Austria to attempt to scramble out of Group C.

Belgium are seeking a clean sweep in Group B against Finland, as Russia face a tricky trip to take on Denmark in Copenhagen.

Group C: North Macedonia vs Netherlands

It’s top versus bottom in Group C at Euro 2020 on Monday, as the Netherlands go up against North Macedonia in Amsterdam.

The hosts are home and hosed with a game to spare, thanks to back-to-back wins on their return to tournament football.

Their visitors, however, are pointless coming into their final match, having gone down to Ukraine and Austria.

Dutch coach Frank de Boer could use this one as an opportunity to shuffle his pack, with the likes of Luuk de Jong and Davy Klassen pushing for a chance to impress.

Likewise for the minnows, who have a swing to nothing before bowing out.

Probable North Macedonia Starting XI: Stole Dimitrievski, Stefan Ristovski, Darko Velkovski, Visar Musliu, Boban Nikolov, Enis Bardhi, Arijan Ademi, Ejif Elmas, Ezgjan Alioski, Goran Pandev, Aleksandar Trajkovski.

Probable Netherlands Starting XI: Maarten Stekelenburg, Jurrien Timber, Mattijs de Light, Stefan de Vrij, Denzel Dumfries, Frenkie de Jong, Georginio Wijnaldum, Owen Wijndal, Davy Klaassen, Memphis Depay, Luuk de Jong.

Group C: Ukraine vs Austria

Ukraine and Austria clash in Bucharest on Monday with qualification from Group C at Euro 2020 very much to play for.

The pair have three points apiece with both having beaten pool minnows North Macedonia and lost to the Netherlands, who top the pile.

Ruslan Malinovskiy looks set to continue in attack, particularly is Oleksandr Zubkov doesn’t recover from his minor injury in time.

Star man David Alaba could end up practically anywhere on the pitch for the Austrians as they strive for the right recipe.

Marko Arnautovic could return following his one-game ban.

Probable Ukraine Starting XI: Georgi Bushchan, Oleksandr Karavaev, Illia Zabarnyi, Mykola Matvienko, Vitalii Mykolenko, Mykola Shaparenko, Taras Stepanenko, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Andriy Yarmolenko, Roman Yaremchuk, Ruslan Malinovskiy.

Probable Austria Starting XI: Daniel Bachmann, Aleksandar Dragovic, Philipp Lienhart, Martin Hinteregger, Stefan Lainer, Konrad Laimer, David Alaba, Marcel Sabitzer, Andreas Ulmer, Sasa Kalajdzic, Christoph Baumgartner.

Group B: Russia vs Denmark

Russia are in prime position to seal progression from Group B at Euro 2020 on Monday night, but they face a tricky assignment against Denmark.

Giving up home advantage for the first time in the tournament, the Russians head to Copenhagen to take on a side that has endured the most dramatic competition so far.

The Danes roared out of the traps against world number one side Belgium last time out, as they tried to move on from the harrowing scenes of Christian Eriksen’s collapse on the opening weekend.

But the Belgians hit back to leave their hosts without a point, although the discharge from hospital of their star man provides plenty of comfort outside of the white lines.

Mikkel Damsgaard could well keep his place for the home team, while Mario Fernandes is unlikely to feature for the Russians.

Probable Russia Starting XI: Anton Shunin, Igor Diveev, Andrey Semenov, Georgi Dzhikiya, Vyacheslav Karavaev, Roman Zobnin, Daler Kuzyaev, Aleksandr Golovin, Magomed Ozdoev, Aleksey Miranchuk, Arterm Dzyuba.

Probable Denmark Starting XI: Kasper Schmeichel, Anders Christiansen, Simon Kjaer, Jannik Vestergaard, Daniel Wass, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Thomas Delaney, Joakim Maehle, Martin Braithwaite, Mikkel Damsgaard, Yussuf Poulsen.

Group B: Finland vs Belgium

Belgium are hunting a hat-trick of victories in the Euro 2020 group stage as they go up against Finland on Monday in St Petersburg.

Having thumped Russia in the opening Group B fixture, they overcame a wave of emotion and an on-field onslaught from Denmark in Copenhagen to seal a second win on the bounce.

The Fins are in contention for the knockouts thanks to the three points they collected from their opening match against the Danes, overshadowed entirely by the collapse on the pitch of Christian Eriksen.

Russia had the edge of the men on tournament debut in their next game, leaving both fighting it out for qualification behind Roberto Martinez’s world number one side.

Bad news for them is that Kevin de Bruyne, who set the Denmark match alight from the bench, could start for the first time in the competition.

Tim Sparv could earn a start in midfield if the Fins fell they could use a wise head, while Joona Toivio looks to have made a successful return from his injury.

Probable Finland Starting XI: Lukas Hradecky, Joona Toivio, Paulus Arajuuri, Daniel O’Shaughnessy, Jukka Raitala, Glen Kamara, Tim Sparv, Robin Lod, Jere Uronen, Teemu Pukki, Joel Pohjanpalo.

Probable Belgium Starting XI: Thibaut Courtois, Toby Alderweireld, Dedryck Boyata, Thomas Vermaelen, Nacer Chadli, Youri Tielemans, Axel Witsel, Yannick Carrasco, Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne, Michy Batshuayi.
