Bet of the Day: France to claim narrow win over Netherlands

| 31.08.2017

Nations meet in World Cup Qualifier

World Cup Qualifying resumes today as France host the Netherlands at the Stade de France.

The pair sit second and third in Group A with France three points ahead of their rivals. However, the French boast a far superior array of attacking quality.

Didier Deschamps side can call upon Kylian Mbappe, Alexandre Lacazette and Antoine Greizmann going forward. Meanwhile, the Netherlands have been forced to hand a recall to 34-year-old striker Robin van Persie.

It all adds up to suggest that France should enjoy a straightforward home win. That means Coral’s Bet of the Day is France and Under 3.5 Goals at 6/5.

Hosts to keep it tight

The Netherlands lack bite up front. France, on the other hand, have a competent if inexperienced backline.

It’s difficult to see the visitors breaching the hosts’ defence this evening. Especially given that France kept a clean sheet against a more threatening Netherlands side back in 2016.

Coral go 29/10 for Les Bleus keep a clean sheet again this time around.

Pogba to be amongst the goals

Paul Pogba has started the season in excellent form. The 24-year-old is a serious threat going forward and has already scored twice this term.

In a similarly unchained role for France the ex-Juventus man has excelled. He has two goals in qualifying including a strike against the Dutch. Up against a lacklustre Oranje midfield he should have the freedom to advance forward with ease.

Pogba is 7/2 to score anytime this evening, while he’s an enhanced 10/1 to score first.
