Netherlands vs France Live | UEFA Nations League | Date: Friday, 16 November 2018 | Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET | Venue: Stadion Feijenoord (Rotterdam)
The Netherlands have missed the last two major tournaments, which is a big disaster for this soccer country, but they seem to be gaining momentum. Oranje won a big 3-0 victory over Germany, the 2014 world champion, in the second round of her League of Nations campaign last month. Can they come back and face the world champion of the scalp in 2018 on Friday night, while the two heavyweights will go out of their way in a derby of the Games Day in Rotterdam?
The visitors need a point to secure the first place in the group, as they are four points behind the Netherlands and six points ahead of Germany in the third. The Blues have reached such a margin thanks to their victory in the second half at Die Mannschaft, a month ago, in Paris. The superstar of Atlético de Madrid, Antoine Griezmann, was the hero of the meeting. He gave some energy to the men of Didier Deschamps at the Stade de France.
Holland vs France: face to face
- France was the dominant force in the most recent confrontation with Oranje.
- The Blues enter this game after five consecutive victories over Holland.
- The series includes a 2-1 victory since mid-September when Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud scored goals for the French team.
Holland vs France: Prediction
The defeat mentioned at the Stade de France is the only defeat suffered by the Netherlands in the last seven games in all competitions. It is a respectable race if we know that they have already played against Portugal, Peru, Italy, Germany, and Belgium.
Ronald Koeman will have almost all the players who played the October games against Germany and Belgium (1-1 draw) here. Deschamps, on the other hand, decided to remember Anthony Martial after he finally started producing at Manchester United.
Both teams have strong attack weapons in their ranks and we would be surprised to see tough competition when they face off against Rotterdam. The two teams that score are a mandatory choice with the odds of 1.61 here.
