Memphis Depay and Denzel Dumfries scored a goal in each half as the Dutch comfortably beat Austria 2-0 on Thursday to advance to the round of 16 at the European Championship.
Thirteen-time winners Real Madrid were drawn against English champions Manchester City while title-holders Liverpool must face Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 following Monday's draw.
It was Germany's first win in a competitive game since last year's World Cup, and came after a game in which coach Joachim Loew's side showed strength and fragility in equal measure.
The Dutch dominated the field with Georginio Wijnaldum scoring just before halftime. The result means the Netherlands can win the group if they draw in Gelsenkirchen against Germany.
