Euro 2024 | Netherlands v France

France in Limbo

France suffered a blow to their Euros campaign when Kylian Mbappe was forced off with a broken nose. The star player clashed with an Austrian player causing his future in France’s next game or two to be in doubt. They face Netherlands on Friday night in a vital match which will have a say on who tops group D. With a France camp in a state of shock with their captain possibly unavailable, I’m tipping Both Teams to Score’ at odds of 1.72.

Better Late Than Never for Netherlands

Netherlands staged a comeback to beat Poland 1-2 in the first game of the tournament for the sides. Cody Gakpo was the star of the show as the Liverpool player scored the equaliser and showed plenty of attacking threat. Alongside Memphis Depay and Xavi Simons, Holland possess a dangerous strike force and I can see them scoring against France who were lucky not to concede against Austria.

France’s Squad Depth

Mbappe was pictured in training on Wednesday wearing a mask to protect his face, increasing the chances he may feature. A great sight for French fans and all of those who have backed him in their golden boot outright bets. Even if Real Madrid’s new signing doesn’t start, France has experience in Olivier Giroud and Kingsley Coman as back up. However Mbappe played a big part in the goal that won France the game against Austria.

Expect Goals

Under Ronald Koeman, Holland are playing free flowing, attacking football as seen in their last six matches which have seen three or more goals in. Whereas France have the quality to score in abundance on their day with or without Kylian Mbappe. This is a match fans should not miss!
