France v Netherlands. Betting tips, odds & prediction for World Cup 2018 qualifiers

World Cup 2018 road is almost over. France alongside with Sweden is leading Group A with three point’s handicap over Netherlands. The Dutch side can miss the second big international tournament after Euro-2016. Dick Advocaat needs a victory at 31 of August in 7-th matchday in Group A to stay in a race for reaching Russia 2018. Les Blues in case of winning at Stad de France over Netherlands will almost guarantee top-2 for France. Didier Deschamps has several players missing due to injuries bur France is still the strongest squad in Europe.

Betting Tip: France had not lost any home soil outing since Euro-2016 final

Netherlands have switched two head coaches in this qualification term. Oranje are in epicenter of generation changing. Form one side Dick Advocaat still needs Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben in the national team. From another side there are no doubts these footballers can’t be a part of Netherlands in Russia 2018 due their ages. So the Dutch boss has to find natural balance between the veterans and new leaders such as Quincy Promes and Memphis Depay. The task is really hard and it is not the time to envy Dick Advocaat.

Betting Tip: Netherlands have collected just one point in three outings against top-3 in Group A of World Cup 2018 qualifiers and in was an away soil game with Sweden

France had surprisingly lost to Sweden in the last matchday with Hugo Lloris made a terrible and funny mistake at the last minute. Les Blues are so strong that they try to get a victory even when they do not need one. Didier Deschamps is an experienced international player and head coach and he has to explain such simple things to his guys. Now France can also rely on a draw against Netherlands but at home soil of Stad De France it is unbelievable to see defending Les Blues.

Betting Tip: The first personal clash between Netherland and France in World Cup 2018 qualifiers ended in favor of Les Blues 0-1 with the only goal scored by Paul Pogba

France v Netherlands is a central game at 31 of August in all the qualifiers. Stad De France is already sold-out for this clash and Les Blues are favourites in bookmakers odds. Bet365 provides the following odds for France v Netherlands encounter:

These are not big missing for Les Blues and they have to get an easy victory over Dutch national team. Wikibet’s prediction is a win by France and a win with a handicap (-1).
