Netherlands – France, Nations League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NETHERLANDS - FRANCE
This group is one of the most interesting with perhaps the best teams overall. Germany has no chance of being 1st first after a draw and two losses so in their last match against Netherlands the German team will not play for anything. In this case, the Flying Dutchmen must necessarily take their game with France to have the chance to win the first place if they defeat Germany in the last fixture. The Dutch have much to prove themselves, as well as Ronald Koeman himself. They played strongly against France in the first match, but lost by 2-1, although they were even to the French team. The truth is that the last two official games that Netherlands lost were against France, but at home the Flying Dutchmen are very strong and a new era for them is coming. They are motivated and have enough class to qualify for the European Championship through the League of Nations.
France go match for the match and although there was some tiredness in the last matches, Les Bleus did not have a loss since March when they got beaten from Colombia in a friendly. They are the definite leaders in the group after taking a point against Germany in the first game and winning the other two matches at home by 2-1. If they also get the draw against Netherlands, they will surely guarantee their first place and play in the playoffs. The guests, however, are missing some very important athletes as the greatest impression makes the absence of Pogba, who is the leader of the team.
This match will be very spectacular and interesting. France is a slight favorite, but Netherlands go out for the victory at 100%. We think Flying Dutchmen will be the more motivated team. In addition, the home factor plays a big role. Van Dijk and De Ligt have built a very good defensive partnership and France will find it very difficult to break through. But it may not matter if the result stays even for a longer time. We do not think that France will be able to win this match and it will be interesting to see how influential Paul Pogba is for the French national team. Prediction Netherlands or Draw at 1.64
