The World Cup winners could claim their first Nations League win but our tipster doesn't expect them to have it all their own way against the Oranje

World champions France host the Netherlands on Sunday night looking to stay unbeaten in the Nations League after two games.

Les Bleus drew 0-0 in Germany on Thursday in arguably their toughest fixture of the tournament, which will give them hope that they can go on and win their group.

Latest Odds

Unsurprisingly, France are 10/21 (1.47) favourites with SportPesa to claim victory in Paris and make it 12 competitive games unbeaten, whilst the draw can be backed at 16/5 (4.20).

Netherlands have failed to qualify for the last two major tournaments and are understandably massive 23/4 (6.75) outsiders to claim an unlikely victory.

Team News

Ousmane Dembele will be pushing for a start after a 25-minute cameo against Germany, whilst Nabil Fekir also came off the bench but may struggle to break into Didier Deschamps’ side.

Wesley Sneijder has retired from international duty, which should allow 21-year-old Frenkie de Jong to step in after impressing on his Netherlands debut against Peru on Thursday.

Class apart

France did the double over the Netherlands in 2018 World Cup qualifying, including a 4-0 thrashing just over 12 months ago, and it is difficult to see anything other than another home win here.

Although the Oranje have certainly improved under Ronald Koeman, who has won two and drawn two of his five games in charge, the gulf in class between them and the world champions should still remain.

Predictions

Since that 4-0 success for France a year ago, the Netherlands have scored in all six of their away matches and Les Bleus have kept a clean sheet in just three of their seven at home.

With that in mind, SportPesa's 37/20 (2.85) price on Deschamps’ men to win and both teams to score looks good value ahead of this Nations League clash in the French capital on Sunday night.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
