Tip Netherlands - France
France continue their bid to add the UEFA Nations League title to the World Cup they won earlier this year. They sit at the top of this League A group with a lead of four points over the Netherlands, who have a game in hand and six ahead of Germany who can't win the group due to their results against the French. They only need a point from this match to win the group and so far have won two and drawn one of their games. That draw came in their away match against Germany and at home they have beaten the Dutch side 2-1 with a goal 15 minutes from time and came from behind to beat Germany with the winner coming with ten minutes left. France are unbeaten in their last 15 games and away from home have no losses in their last four games.
The past few years have seen the Netherlands missing out on both the European Championship and World Cup finals and unless they can win their last two games they will miss out on the UEFA Nations League finals next year. They still have a chance of winning the group but also have the possibility of being relegated. A draw here takes them to four points and that'd mean they'd have to avoid a heavy defeat by the Germans on Sunday to stay up. A defeat by France means just a loss to Germany will send them into League B. The Netherlands began the group with a 2-1 loss away to France but then had a great 3-0 home win over Germany. They have only lost one of their last six games and at home have won six of the last seven. This should be a great game and the tip is for over 2.5 goals to be scored.
Key points Netherlands - France
Six of the last eight Netherlands home games have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in three of the last four games played between these two countries.
Four of the last five France matches have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
Conclusion Netherlands - France
France only need a point to win the group and a draw will also make it unlikely that the Netherlands will be relegated. The Netherlands have decent form but seem to keep falling short of qualifying for major events. They have lost their last five games against the French and another loss will set up a relegation battle with Germany on Sunday. Both sides score on a regular basis but don't keep too many clean sheets either (France have one in their last five and the Dutch one in six), so the tip here is for over 2.5 goals to be scored.
