Expert match review
Europe (uefa) - Qualification Round 2023/2024
Both team score
Didier Deschamps' team was able to reach the final at the last Winter World Cup in Qatar and only had to admit defeat to Argentina on penalties. In the Nations League season 2022/23 France only managed to record one win in six group games and came close to being relegated to League B. Only promoted Austria got one point less with a record of one win, one draw and four defeats in the group. Overall, the defensive problems of the French are striking. At the World Cup, they only stayed clean in the 2-0 win against Morocco. France manage to record only two clean sheets in their last 13 international matches. In total, the Oranje has only recorded a defeat at the World Cup against Argentina in the past 20 games. In those 20 games they always score at least one goal. This statistic alone suggests that the Dutch do not remain without their chances against France. France have scored 26 goals in the previous 12 home games against the Dutch, but have also conceded 20 goals. Netherlands have not lost a game after regulation time since the 0-2 defeat by the Czech Republic at the Euro finals.
