Duel for the promotion to the semi-final
On Monday the third day of play of the U19 EURO in Germany the Netherlands play against France. At the same time it’s the showdown for the promotion to the semi-final because both teams have three points at the moment. Kick-off on the 18th of July is at 7.30 p.m..
Current performance of the Netherlands
The young team still has all chances to make it to the semi-finals due to the first match which they have won with a score of 3:1 against Croatia. On the second day of play they could have led the group but England has won with a score of 2:1. A bitter pill to swallow for Holland: the winning goal was scored at the 92nd minute. Before they already have given their leading score (1:0) away. The chief of the team Aaron Winter uses a offensive and traditional 4-3-3-System. The wing players have an important role there. The qualities of the U19 team are more at the offensive play. At the defence always occurred some problems at the matches. Also at matches before the EURO they got goals from weaker teams like the Czech Republic or the Ukraine. A great method for them at the match are free kicks. With Abdelhak Nouri the Netherlands have a specialist for causing problems to their rivals. The central middle field player who played in his youth for Ajax Amsterdam is also the captain of the team. Against France it is especially important to have a strong defence.
Current performance of France
On the contrary to their rival the Netherlands, France wasn’t able to win the first match against England (1:2). The team of Ludovic Batelli has shown a great performance although. However this good performance hasn’t been rewarded. A full success was the second match against Croatia. They have won the match with a sovereign score of 2:0. The scorer in this match have been Jean Kevin Augustin and the only 17 years old Kilian Mbape. Frances trusts in a classic 4-4-2-System on the contrary to the Netherlands. In addition they had to suffer only one defeat in this year and this was the first match at the U19 EURO against England. In contrast out of all six matches they have played in this year 2016 they have won four matches and one match ended in a drawn. One impressing fact is that in all five matches before the EURO France didn’t get any goal from the other side. The defence is definitely an advantage for the young "Equipe Tricolore". We will see if this will be an decisive factor for France for winning this match and make it to the semi-final.
Betting tip for this match
Two teams that have shown great performances meet each other. France has shown especially against Croatia a sovereign performance but also against England. The Netherlands on the other side had to fight to win in both matches. That’s why we believe in a close victory for France. Our tip: tip 2.
