Match Preview

The Netherlands host France at De Kuip Stadium in Rotterdam needing to beat the visitors to keep their progression hopes alive in League A, Group 1 of the UEFA Nations League (UNL). France, meanwhile, just need to avoid defeat to guarantee top spot.
After a 2-1 away loss in the reverse fixture, the ‘Oranje’ (NED) came back strongly and hammered Germany 3-0 last month. In all competitions, including friendlies, that result was their third 3-0 success in their last four wins and the fifth to nil out of their last six victories.
Ronald Koeman’s Netherlands’ side have been impressive at home, winning six of their last seven fixtures (W6, L1), and scoring at least two goals in each win.
The French remain unbeaten in the competition (W2, D1), defeating Germany 2-1 in front of their fans in their last UNL outing. The current world champions are on a great run of 15-straight games, including friendlies, without a loss (W11, D4), nine of which did see both teams score.
If anything, complacency could be an issue for France here, having won five-straight H2Hs against the Netherlands.
Players to watch: Dutch striker Memphis Depay has scored four goals in his last four with Lyon, and found the net in the Netherlands’ last UNL match. Meanwhile, Antoine Griezmann scored France’s two goals against Germany in their last UNL game.
Stat attack: Matches between these two sides are usually high scoring affairs with four of the last five competitive meetings seeing at least three goals.
The Netherlands’ first two UNL games produced more than 2.5 goals (total).
France have conceded an average of 6.7 corners per match in their three UNL fixtures.
