Sunday's Euro 2020 predictions including Belgium vs. Portugal

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Sunday's Euro 2020 last 16 fixtures - Netherlands vs. Czech Republic and Belgium vs. Portugal.

Netherlands vs. Czech Republic (Sunday, 5.00pm)

A Netherlands outfit arguably exceeding expectations under Frank de Boer prepare for battle in the last-16 stage of Euro 2020 as they take on the Czech Republic at the Puskas Arena on Sunday evening.

Oranje eased through Group C as winners to advance to the knockout stages, while the Czech Republic booked their spot in the elite 16 as one of the four best third-placed outfits.

We say: Netherlands 2-0 Czech Republic

There would be no better time for the Czech Republic to record a third successive victory over the Netherlands, and they ought to be spurred on by the chance to emulate the 2004 luminaries.

However, De Boer's Oranje have quality in abundance in all areas of the pitch and firmly laid down a marker with their group-stage performances, so we can only back the Netherlands to safely advance to the last eight.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Belgium vs. Portugal (Sunday, 8.00pm)

One of the standout ties in the last-16 stage of Euro 2020 will take place in Seville on Sunday evening, with Belgium, who have a 100% record at this summer's competition, facing the holders Portugal.

Belgium breezed into the knockout round by winning all three of their Group B fixtures to top the section, while Portugal ultimately qualified from Group F in third behind France and Germany.

We say: Belgium 1-1 Portugal (Portugal win on penalties)

This is an incredibly difficult game to call, as it really is a flip of the coin. Both teams will feel that they can hurt the other in the final third of the field, and it is set to be a fascinating contest in Seville.

We are finding it tough to separate the two teams over the course of 90 minutes and indeed extra-time and have therefore settled on Portugal advancing to the quarter-finals courtesy of a penalty-shootout success.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
