Netherlands vs France: Tickets, TV channel and match preview ahead of Euro 2024 glamour clash

Posted by

The Netherlands and France face each other in the next chapter of their Euro 2024 journey and a win for either team will go a long way in deciding who finishes top of Group D.

The two sides won their opening games with the Dutch defeating Poland 2-1, while the French had to overcome a very tough Austria side and just got past Ralf Rangnick’s men with a 1-0 scoreline.

All the talk coming into this clash has been about the nose injury suffered by Kylian Mbappe and the superstar is set to miss this crucial game in Leipzig as a result. France have more than enough quality to replace him, but the 25-year-old’s absence will certainly have an impact on his team.

These two nations have a head-to-head record of 16-3-11 in favour of France, with Didier Deschamps’ men winning 2-1 the last time the pair met back in October 2023. In fact, France have won seven of their eight previous meetings and will be confident of coming away from Leipzig with all three points and complete control of Group D.

Netherlands vs France team news

As previously mentioned Kylian Mbappe will miss France’s clash with the Netherlands due to the broken nose he suffered against Austria with the superstar expected back at a later date.

The Netherlands came through their first game unscathed and Ronald Koeman is unlikely to make many changes to his line-up for their clash with the French.
