The big game of the Second Round of Group D in the European Championships will see the Netherlands take on France at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig at 20:00 GMT. This is likely to be the match that will decide which team will go on to top the Group. So, will the Dutch claim the title of Group D winners, or will that accolade go to the French? Take five minutes to read this prediction, and all of my views will be revealed.

🏆 Netherlands vs France: Who Will Win?

The Netherlands are the sixth favourites to go on and win Euro 2024, and it is easy to see why as they have quality players across the pitch, who play in some of the top leagues in Europe. In defence, they can call upon the likes of Ake and van Dijk and in an attacking sense their opponents need to deal with the likes of Gakpo, Reijnders, and Depay. If they play to the best of their ability, which they did not do against Poland, then there is no reason why they cannot go deep in this competition.

France are the joint favourites with England to lift the title, and it is easy to see why when you check out the players that Didier Deschamps has at his disposal. Some of their top players include Saliba, Hernández, Kanté, Griezmann, and Mbappé - these are players that would walk into most international teams without a second thought. However, for all of their attacking verve, they needed an own goal to see off Austria. We can put that down to rust, and they should get better as the competition wears on.

This should be a great match to watch, but it is not an easy one to predict. Both teams will fancy their chances of winning, but I can see it ending in a stalemate. As for the scoreline, I am going to opt for a 2-2.

My Prediction: 🏆 Netherlands 2 France 2 ⚽

💯 Netherlands vs France Match Odds

Established and new UK betting sites will offer odds and markets for all of the matches at Euro 2024, but many are mediocre, and nobody needs to suffer from mediocrity in the world of sports betting. There are many top bookies out there, five of which you can find below, alongside their odds for three of the most popular football betting markets.

If you want to register with any of these bookies, check out our bookmaker reviews to find out all you need to know before you commit financially.

🏅 Netherlands vs France: Match Winner Odds

Previous recent matches between two teams can tell you plenty as to what might happen in future games. Sometimes two teams might not have played each other for many years, but this is not the case with France and the Netherlands as they were in the same Euro 2024 qualifying group. France won the first match 4-0 while the second match was much closer, although the French still won 2-1.

With these two recent results, it is not that surprising to see that the bookmakers have France as the favourites to win. Although, as you can see from the match winner odds for this Netherlands vs France match, they have not completely ruled out the Dutch:

Team
Netherlands3.103.103.103.003.00
Draw3.253.253.303.453.45
France2.202.202.252.332.33

⚽ Netherlands vs France: Both Teams To Score Odds

With the attacking talent that both teams have at their disposal, we are pretty sure that you can guess which way the bookmakers are leaning when it comes to whether both teams will score or not. If you guessed the "Yes" option, then give yourself a pat on the back. Below are both teams to score odds:

BTTS
Yes1.721.721.751.661.72
No2.012.011.951.921.98

🥅 Netherlands vs France: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

Since they have France as the favourites to win and reckon that there is a higher chance that both teams will score, it would stand to reason that the bookmakers also believe that there is a good chance that over 2.5 goals will be scored in this match.

However, as you can see from the table below, they think there will be under 2.5 goals scored in this game. You already know that I disagree with this, but that gives us some value. Check out the over/under 2.5 goals odds below:

Over/Under 2.5 Goals
Over 2.51.921.922.001.861.93
Under 2.51.771.771.801.801.86

✔️ Netherlands vs France - Betting Tips

Now that you have a better understanding of the kind of Netherlands vs France odds that some top bookmakers are offering for this game, it is time for this betting guide to focus on something else. I am now going to give you some top Netherlands vs France betting tips that you should think about before betting on this match.

If you have a free bet available, you might be tempted to put down a risky wager, but I recommend that you do not waste your free bets like this. Check out some tips from experienced bettors, and then try to make good use of your free bet, even if you do not end up with a big return.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a draw: The bookies have France winning this one, but I can see the game ending in a draw. Why is this? Well, I think both teams have quality in attack and half-decent defences, so they will end up cancelling each other out. Furthermore, a draw is not the end of the world for either side, and they might both be happy with such a result ahead of their final group games.
  • Tip 2: Bet on BTTS: With the attacking talent on display for both nations, I would be really surprised if both teams did not find the back of the net in this game. There should be plenty of goal-scoring chances for both teams, and you can find odds of 1.75 at 10Bet for both teams scoring.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Griezmann to score: Antoine Griezmann has rarely ever let his country down when he pulls on their shirt, and it is fair to say that he knows where the goal is. In his international career, he has notched up a total of 44 goals, and I can see him picking up his 45th against the Dutch. There is a chance that Mbappe might not be playing, so he will see the ball a bit more. If you think Griezmann will get on the scoresheet, then LeoVegas currently have 4.35 for him to score.
  • Tip 4: Place a wager on a 2-2 draw: You already know what I think the score will be for this match and the reasons why I think it will end this way, and those who agree with me can place a bet on this outcome. At the time of writing, Betiton Sport are offering odds of 12.00 for this to be the correct score.

N.B. Always make sure that you gamble responsibly. Set up deposit limits and a budget that you stick to no matter what.

1️⃣Netherlands Update

The Dutch lost twice to the French in the qualifying rounds for Euro 2024, so they will have to put these two defeats out of their mind when they take to the field on Friday evening. For me, the Netherlands have quality all over the pitch, so I am expecting a close game between these two nations. If France leave any space at the back, then the Dutch have the speed to counter fast and cause all sorts of issues.

One player who I am always excited to watch is Memphis Depay as he has the talent to cause the best defenders in the world a whole range of issues. He also has no trouble finding the back of the net as he has netted 45 goals in 93 appearances for his country. Below are their previous five results:

France Update

It will not be a surprise to many if France go on to win Euro 2024 as they have one of the best squads in the competition - there are not many players from other countries that could break their way into the French team. However, they might not be able to call on Mbappe for their two remaining group matches as he broke his nose in the narrow victory over Austria. He will be a big loss for Deschamps, but they are more than Mbappe.

If Mbappe cannot play, Olivier Giroud might be called into action from the start, which would give France plenty of presence in the air. He is also France's top scorer, so it is not like they would lose any attacking threat. Below are France's previous five match results:
