The Netherlands and Czech Republic will be bidding to reach the quarter-finals at Euro 2020 when they clash in the last 16 this evening.

The Dutch have won all of their games so far to top Group C, but Frank de Boer opted against making wholesale changes for their final fixture against North Macedonia - despite having qualification assured - as he wanted to build the understanding and rhythm within his side.

His main selection decision tonight was whether to bring striker Wout Weghorst back in to partner Memphis Depay up front, or else allow Donyell Malen to continue.

De Boer opted for the latter option at the Puskas Arena.

Meanwhile, left-back Jan Boril is suspended for the Czech Republic, with Hoffenheim’s Pavel Kaderabek filling in.

Petr Sevcik and Antonin Barak also start in place of the injured Vladimir Darida and Jakub Jankto.

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek captains the Czech Republic with Darida out.

Here is how the two sides shape up in Budapest...
