There are some great games on display in this international break with a big match in Europe between France and Netherlands at the Stade de France in Paris. Both teams have had a lot of history playing in the World Cup and a win here will be wanted by both sets of teams.
The big news coming in from the Netherlands camp is the recall of their legendary striker Robin Van Persie. While this is big news for some Dutch fans, it calls for concern regarding the quality of talent available to the Dutch national team. This is a side that once dominated world football but at the current state this team is in, they will be struggling to make any impact come the time of the world cup.
France, on the other hand, look like a really strong team. This team is well balanced and I think they can do really well. This team has the best midfield in the world with a perfect balance between Pogba, Kante and Matuidi. The attack line is amazing with Griezmann, Dembele and Mbappe. This is almost the perfect team and they will be at home for this game so I am expecting a great performance and a big win for the home side.
All in all, I am prediction the France National team to win this game. I think this will be a pretty easy win for the home side. We are getting a pretty good price for this bet so it is perhaps the best bet we can make. Another good bet is in regards to the number of goals being scored. France has one of the best-attacking sides in the world while the Dutch have defensive issues so as a result, this could be a very high scoring game. Considering the price we are getting for the over 2.5 goals bet, we are getting a really good price.
