Live in-play betting – 

France will be looking to bounce back from their loss to Sweden with a victory that could seriously damage the prospect of their visitors in this match.

The French men are in a three horse race with Sweden and Netherlands for a place in next year’s world Cup.

Sweden currently top the table after a shock 2-1 win over France with the French men only behind them on goal difference, while the Netherlands are three points behind the duo, and Bulgaria one point behind the Netherlands which makes this encounter an interesting one to bet on.

All four teams play each other this week and results could separate the best from the rest.

The French will be slight favourites for this match however don’t expect the Netherlands to just roll over at the Stade de France .

The situation is obviously bleak for the Dutch men but a loss in this game could all but confirm that they will not be finishing in the top two.

The Oranje have been struggling to impress since they finished third at the 2014 World Cup under the leadership of Louis Van Gaal.

However, since Dick Advocaat took over there has been an upturn of results and this game offers them an opportunity to continue a good run of form.
