Netherlands v France Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm UK Time, Friday 13th October 2023

 

Thus far France have completely blown this competition right out of the water with maximum points taken with relative ease in each of their five games and a full six points separating them from their closest rivals in the qualifying group.

Having lost in an unimportant friendly against Germany, France’s excellent start to their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign continued with an excellent 2-0 victory over the Republic of Ireland, goals from Aurelien Tchouameni and Marcus Thuram putting Les Bleus on the verge of qualifying for the competition. Victory over the Dutchmen on Friday evening will ensure France’s progression into Euro 2024 although even a draw will be sufficient should Ireland beat Greece in Dublin on the same evening. France are one of just two sides yet to leak a goal in the tournament – the others being Group J leaders Portugal – and they haven’t tasted defeat in 12 qualifying matches since losing 2-0 to Turkey four years ago.

The Netherlands sit second in their qualifying group with a game in hand over the leaders, this due to their ultimately failed involvement in the finals of the Nations League, Ronald Koeman’s men losing to Italy and Croatia to make it four defeats from five. They reignited their bid to qualify for Euro 2024 by recording back-to-back victories over Greece and Ireland with five goals scored and just one conceded. Irrespective of the outcomes of this round of qualifying matches, the Netherlands can’t secure a place in Euro 2024 just yet but wins over France and Greece (Monday 16th October) would be enough if the Republic of Ireland can avoid defeat to the latter.

France have brushed aside each of their opponents in Group B thus far and the likelihood is that they will maintain their perfect record on Friday evening. With an opportunity to guarantee for themselves a place at Euro 2024 with two games to spare, we expect Les Bleus to silence the home fans and edge their way to victory while keeping the hosts at bay throughout.

 

Back France to win-to-nil at best odds of 10/3
