It’s Day 2 of the Euro 2020 Round of 16! After two exciting matches on Saturday, Sunday brings us two more games with four teams vying for a place in the quarterfinals of the European Championships.

We begin in Budapest, where Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong and Memphis Depay will look to lead the Netherlands to a place in the Last Eight when they meet Patrick Schick and the Czech Republic. The Dutch were one of the most impressive teams in the group stage, exciting the home crowd in Amsterdam with three great wins to come into the knockouts full of confidence.

The Czechs had a great start with a 2-0 win over Scotland and a Goal of the Tournament contender by Schick, but their last two performances against Croatia and England left a lot to be desired and they come into this one as bigger underdogs than first expected.

The winner faces Martin Braithwaite’s Denmark in the quarterfinals. This should be fun.
