France can clinch top spot in their Nations League group by picking up a point against the Netherlands and that makes a draw in Rotterdam stand out.
Les Bleus prevailed 2-1 when these teams met in Saint-Denis a couple of months ago but Didier Deschamps would settle for a share of the spoils at De Kuip.
The Dutch have improved under Ronald Koeman but we’re still snapping up 12/5 for a stalemate as our first Netherlands vs France prediction.
A Look At Netherlands’ Betting Odds
Netherlands followed up that loss in France by securing a memorable 3-0 home win over Germany, so they are clearly back on an upward curve.
Liverpool duo Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum struck against Die Mannschaft, either side of former Manchester United misfit Memphis Depay hitting the target.
Arnaut Groeneveld’s equaliser then earned the Dutch a 1-1 friendly draw with Belgium in Brussels to give them another confidence boost.
We’ve also been impressed by Luuk de Jong this season, with the PSV forward netting 11 times in the Eredivisie and scoring at home and away in Champions League tussles with Tottenham.
A Look At France’s Betting Odds
France have maintained the momentum of their World Cup triumph with a four-match unbeaten run since Russia 2018, meaning they have now gone 15 matches without defeat.
Les Bleus have been more workmanlike than spectacular of late, though, drawing with Germany and Iceland alongside 2-1 wins over the Dutch and Die Mannschaft.
Antoine Griezmann’s second-half brace helped them come from behind to edge out Germany last time, but it should be noted that Les Bleus had been outplayed in the opening period.
Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial have withdrawn from the squad, but Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette and Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko are solid replacements.
The feeling is that Holland have the potential to pose problems, but France are professional enough to get the result they need to progress.
Let’s add 6/1 for a 1-1 draw to our Netherlands vs France betting tips.
Belgium 1-1 NETHERLANDS – Arnaut Groeneveld
FRANCE 2-1 Germany – Antoine Griezmann (2)
Head-to-head: France 2-1 Netherlands, France 4-0 Netherlands, Netherlands 0-1 France, Netherlands 2-3 France, France 2-0 Netherlands, France 1-4 Netherlands
