Netherlands vs France Predictions

[wptb id="391293" not found ]

The Euro 2024 Qualifying Conundrum

Key Stats
– France boast an invincible run in Euro 2024 qualifiers, with 5 clean sheets.
– The Netherlands, on their home turf, have netted at least three goals in their last four qualification matches.
– Les Bleus stand dominant with six wins in their last seven meetings against the Oranje.

France, having painted a masterclass on the Euro 2024 qualification canvas, head to Amsterdam with a tantalising matchup against the hopefuls from Group B, the Netherlands. Les Bleus, untouched in the race, have garnered a full 15 points from 15, leaving the Oranje trailing by a formidable six points. However, with a game less played, Ronald Koeman’s squad remains optimistic.

The Netherlands, reeling from their less than satisfactory performance in the Nations League, where they suffered four losses from five matches, aim to bounce back and rise from the ashes of those defeats. Their return to the qualifying battleground last month witnessed a resurgent spirit. Victories over Greece and the Republic of Ireland, a combined score of 5-1, injected fresh hope in their campaign. The thrilling comeback against the Irish, with goals from Cody Gakpo and Wout Weghorst, was particularly notable.

While sealing a direct qualification spot this Friday remains a distant dream for the Dutch, a triumph over France and Greece could tip the balance if Ireland manages to thwart Greece.

France, meanwhile, walk with a swagger, having brushed aside the Republic of Ireland, thanks to strikes from Aurelien Tchouameni and Marcus Thuram. Riding high, they look poised to cement their place at the Euro 2024 Finals. Their invincible run in Group B, including a recent win against the Dutch, stands testimony to their prowess.

Venue Vibes and Historical Hues

Amsterdam’s arenas have seen the Dutch dominate in their last four Euro 2024 qualification games. Venues like De Kuip, Philips Stadion, and the legendary Johan Cruyff Arena witnessed Oranje netting at least three times in every match.

France, too, have been a beacon of consistency. Even after a hiccup against Germany in a friendly, their journey in Group B remained untouched. Les Bleus have a badge of honour with their defense, not letting a single goal slip past in the qualifiers. A record they share only with Portugal. Their impressive 12-game unbeaten run in this stage further amplifies their might.

Squad Struggles: Injuries Galore

The Netherlands, still nursing the scars of their 4-0 drubbing by France in March, face an injury storm. Notable players including Gakpo, de Jong, and Depay are ruled out. Their thin attacking options rest heavily on Steven Bergwijn. Yet, the return of Denzel Dumfries provides some relief. On the horizon, there’s hope as uncapped Micky van de Ven might strengthen their defense.

Didier Deschamps of France too wrestles with a decimated defense. The likes of Fofana, Kimpembe, and Upamecano are on the sidelines. However, new inclusions Malo Gusto and Castello Lukeba, paired with returning stalwarts Konate and Clauss, might just fill the void.

Predictions:

  1. Match Result: France to Win

Justification: The momentum favours the French side, having secured a flawless 15 points from the possible 15. In contrast, the Netherlands sit with a deficit of six points, albeit they possess a game in hand. When we roll back to their previous encounter in this qualifying campaign, France decimated the Dutch with a 4-0 victory. Additionally, the history books showcase France’s dominance, winning six out of their last seven face-offs with the Netherlands. With France’s consistency in this campaign and their record against the Dutch, it’s logical to predict a win for Les Bleus.

  1. Correct Score: 2-1 to France

Justification: Analysing both team’s scoring trends, France’s attack is in a formidable state, averaging more than 2 goals per game in their qualifying matches. Furthermore, their defence remains unbreached in the Euro 2024 qualifiers. However, considering the home advantage for the Netherlands and the potential for unexpected match events, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to envisage the Dutch side registering a goal. Combining France’s potent attack and their near-impenetrable defence, a 2-1 victory in favour of France seems a plausible outcome.

  1. Goalscorer: Kylian Mbappé to Score

Justification: Despite Mbappé’s recent subdued form at Paris Saint-Germain, his international record can’t be overlooked. He stands as one of the top performers for France in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, boasting a commendable average rating. Additionally, with his explosive pace and impeccable finishing, the Dutch defence, which is riddled with injuries, might struggle to contain the Parisian maestro. Given the spotlight and the weight of the occasion, it would be typical of a player of Mbappé’s calibre to rise to the challenge and find the net.

  1. Corner Prediction: Netherlands to Have More Corners; Total Corners Over 10.5

Justification: The Dutch side has been consistent with their attacking intent, averaging 8.5 corners per match. Their style of play, which involves wide play, pushing full-backs forward, and creating overloads on flanks, naturally leads to more corner situations. On the other hand, France, while dominant in possession, averages slightly fewer corners at 5.2 per game. When considering both teams’ attacking prowess and the high stakes of the match, it’s likely that we’ll see a total of over 10.5 corners in the game, with the Netherlands edging out in individual corner stats.
