Match Summary

1 Look out for:

There has been a few surprises so far in the newly-formatted UEFA competition, making Nations League predictions trickier. 

France were held to a draw by rivals Germany in their first match of the tournament, but they should have too much for an improving Netherlands.

Didier Deschamps’ side are at 4/9 with Sky Bet to win as a profitable football prediction for the international break.

2 We fancy:

Despite the unpredictable nature of the new competition, there is still plenty of value available in football score predictions. 

France looked effective and efficient during the World Cup, and while Ronald Koeman has developed this Dutch team, France should be clear winners.

With that in mind, a 2-0 France win is at 6/1 with William Hill.

3 It's a long shot, but…

France have won their last four games against Netherlands, including home and away victories during the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.

In those four games, Griezmann netted two goals, and so did Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

Indeed, Giroud could be worth a shout on your weekend football predictions list, coming in at 13/8 with Betfair to score anytime.

One to Watch: Antoine Griezmann

Griezmann was France’s top scorer at the World Cup with five goals, and he is expected to feature heavily in their UEFA Nations League previews. The Atletico Madrid forward is always a strong option as a football prediction, having netted for his club already this season. He is at 13/5 with Paddy Power to score first in this one.

France should be at full strength following their friendly stalemate with Germany. Therefore, Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola should continue in goal, with captain Hugo Lloris injured.

France vs Netherlands Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will France make home advantage count against Netherlands?

France’ success in Russia was underpinned by Didier Deschamps being able to pick he same starting XI for most games, with little need for rotation.

He looks set to continue with the same core group of players as they prepare for Euro 2020, with Alphonse Areola the only change from the side who started the World Cup final. 

The Netherlands are making strides under Ronald Koeman, losing just one of his five games in charge. Against future opposition, the Dutch would be an option to win in your football bet tips and predictions list, but France will be even stronger at home. 

However if you are looking for something non-score related in our football betting tips for the weekend, it is worth remembering that in every World Cup game where France scored two or more, they bagged in both halves.

They are at 2/1 with MarathonBet to score both sides of the break in his game. 

Predicted Score: France 2 - 0 Netherlands
