French superstar Kylian Mbappe may be forced to miss out after he broke his nose against the Austrians, but that may not be enough to stop Didier Deschamps’s side coming out on top.

These two teams will know one another pretty well, having also come through qualifying together, and Les Bleus triumphed on both occasions.

France were emphatic 4-0 winners at home in March last year, before they triumphed 2-1 in Amsterdam and Deschamps has enough firepower amongst his options to negate the potential Mbappe blow.

Ousmane Dembele, Marcus Thuram, Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann are a strong supporting cast and the Oranje looked vulnerable to pace on the break in their come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Poland.

The Dutch were also shaky at defending set-pieces and France should be confident that they can exploit those frailties and make it two wins from two in Group D.

That said, a clean sheet may be beyond Les Bleus. Netherlands racked up 21 shots against Poland and France have conceded in six of their last 10 international matches, so there may be a consolation in it for them.

Netherlands vs France Tip 1: France to win & both teams to score

Denzel Dumfries is an enigma of a full-back, with him carrying a significant attacking threat from his right wing-back role, but his defensive duties are going to be tested by this fluent French attack.

The Inter Milan man will be looking to get forward at every opportunity, but that could be a risky ploy against Theo Hernandez and Thuram, who were both deployed down France’s left side in their win over Austria.

That French duo drew four fouls between them against the Austrians and that could spell trouble for Dumfries, who committed two fouls against the Poles and who was cautioned when these teams last met in qualifying.
