🏆👉  Netherlands overturned the result and won the UEFA EURO Quarterfinals defeating Turkey on Saturday 6 July 2024 at the Leipzig Stadium in Leipzig, Germany. Ironically, the winner goal was an own goal giving the Netherlands the qualification to the Semifinal.
This was the 15th meeting between the Netherlands and Turkey (six wins for the Netherlands, four draws, four wins for Turkey), but the first in a major international tournament (European/World Cup).

Note: Before the game, Turkey have received 18 yellow cards at EURO 2024; in the history of the European Championships, only the Czech Republic in 1996 has received more cards in a single edition (20 – 19 yellows, one red).

Stats before the game: In the last two matches between the Netherlands and Turkey, a total of 13 goals were scored (6.5 on average per game): 4-2 victory for Turkey in March 2021 and 6-1 success for the Netherlands in September 2021, both in qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup. The Netherlands have progressed five of the last seven times they have played in a quarter-final of a major international tournament (European/World Cup), although one of the two exceptions was the most recent: defeat on penalties against Argentina in World Cup 2022. This will be the Oranje’s first European Championship quarter-final since 2008, when they lost 3-1 to Russia. Turkey has reached the quarter-finals of a major international tournament (European/World Cup) for the fourth time in its history, after EURO 2000, the 2002 World Cup and EURO 2008. In the last two they reached the semi-final, while EURO 2000 was eliminated by losing 0-2 against Portugal. The Netherlands have only progressed in three of their last nine knockout matches at the European Championships. After beating Romania 3-0 in this year’s round of 16, the Oranje could win two knockout matches in a single edition of the tournament for only the second time since EURO 1988, when they won the competition.
