This Friday night, France travels to Amsterdam to take on fellow Group B contenders, the Netherlands. With two games remaining, France must win only once more to secure a spot at Euro 2024. Oranje is six points behind their next opponents, even though they still have a game in hand, while Les Bleus has dominated the opposition thus far, taking 15 points out of a possible 15.
The Netherlands vs France
In group B of the Euro qualifying competition, France leads handily and will visit the Netherlands, which is ranked second, on Thursday. The French team has not let up a goal in any of their five qualifying matches. Though they have played one more game, they lead the Dutch squad by six points. Greece, which has played the same number of games as France but is six points behind, is in third place.
There is still a game to be played in Gibraltar, but qualifying for the finals appears to be assured. They defeated the Netherlands 4-0 at home to start this group, scoring three goals in the opening twenty-one minutes. Greece, Gibraltar, and Ireland have all been defeated by the French team since then, all with spotless records. They lost an away friendly against Germany in their most recent fixture. Since a loss to Turkey four years ago, France has been unbeaten in 12 European qualifiers, winning 11 of them.
Against the other teams in this group, the Netherlands won that match. They are already assured a spot in the play-offs due to their Nations League performance, but they won’t want to go down that path. This group has progressed nicely since that terrible first game against France.
Ireland, Greece, and Gibraltar have all been defeated. The latter, though, proved difficult for the Oranje, as they had to overcome a 1-0 deficit to win 2-1. They will travel to Greece after this match, and that will be a major factor in determining who advances to the finals automatically.
Currently occupying the top two spots in Group B are France and the Netherlands. France has won all five of its preliminary matches, whereas the Netherlands has won three and lost one of their four. The Netherlands’ domestic league doesn’t appear all that good right now. Three of their last four home games ended in losses. France, however, is playing well on the road. Out of their last five away games, they have won three.
Currently, France has prevailed in two of the previous three meetings between the two teams at this venue. As a result, we anticipate that France will defeat this Dutch team on Friday.
Not only have they scored in all five of their group stage matches thus far, but in their last 12 competitive games, they have only failed to score once, that being in a dead rubber match against Tunisia during the World Cup last year. Because of this, Les Bleus ought to deal at least one blow to a Dutch team that, in their most recent qualifier, was unable to shut out a timid Republic of Ireland team. But Holland is also strong in the latter third, so several goals should be scored in this match.
