Sweden’s impressive form in Group A has made Thursday’s World Cup qualifier between France and Holland a crucial clash and we’re backing Les Bleus to prove too strong on home turf.
The hosts go into this game joint-top of the table, with the Netherlands three points behind as the competition for places at Russia 2018 really hots up.
Anything could still happen in this intriguing pool but the value bet here is to go for a home win and both teams to score at 29/10 in our France vs Holland betting predictions.
A Look At France’s Betting Odds
France suffered a heart-breaking loss in Sweden last time out, going down to a stoppage-time goal after Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud had pulled them back level.
However, that followed a run of four straight wins, which included a 2-1 defeat of the Swedes in Paris and a 1-0 win over the Dutch in Amsterdam.
Les Bleus quickly bounced back from the Solna setback to beat England 3-2 in a friendly, with new Barcelona recruit Ousmane Dembele bagging the winner after they had been reduced to 10 men.
Didier Deschamp’s Euro 2016 runners-up have a ton of talent but did concede against Bulgaria and Luxembourg, so we like 31/20 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our France vs Holland betting tips.
A Look At Holland’s Betting Odds
It seems as though Holland have been plagued by inconsistency for a number of years now and that has been the case again during this qualifying campaign.
March’s 2-0 loss in Bulgaria dealt a severe blow to their hopes of advancing, although June’s 5-0 thrashing of Luxembourg in Rotterdam should have helped to lift morale back up.
In between those games, there was also a 5-0 drubbing of Ivory Coast after Dick Advocaat had been recalled to replace Danny Blind as coach, so there are goals in this team.
Veteran forward Robin van Persie returns to the fold after two years out of international football and links up with fellow golden oldies Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder.
The Dutch may fade late on but 17/5 they score more goals in the first half than the second takes the eye from the France vs Holland odds.
Sweden 2-1 FRANCE – Olivier Giroud
HOLLAND 5-0 Luxembourg – Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder, Georginio Wijnaldum, Quincy Promes, Vincent Janssen
Head-to-head: Holland 0-1 France, Holland 2-3 France, France 2-0 Holland, France 1-4 Holland, Holland 0-0 France
