The stand-out match on Friday night is in Paris where World Cup finalists France host the Netherlands in a blockbuster Euro 2024 qualifier.

A penalty shoot-out defeat to Argentina put paid to the Netherlands chances in Qatar, otherwise it might have been Louis van Gaal's side who squared up to the French in the Final. The legendary Dutchman called it a day after the tournament and Ronald Koeman has stepped in to the role for a second time.

There's no doubt he has a talented squad at his disposal but there's a core that are the wrong side of 30 and are running out of opportunites to make their mark at an international tournament. 2010 was the last time they reached a major final and you have to go back to Euro 88, when Gullit, Van Basten and Rijkaard were in their pomp, for the their last tournament success.

Tonight gives them the chance to put down a marker but in opponents, France they're up against the nation with arguably the strongest and deepest pool of talent in the world at the moment.

Unlike the Dutch squad the French have a youthful look to them, Giroud and Griezmann and two of just four over-30s, with an average age of 25.6.

However… the French haven't been very convincing at home in recent campaigns. Across World Cup qualifying and their Nations League campaign they only won three of seven on home soil, against Finland, Kazakhstan and Austria. The Dutch look more than capable of springing a surprise at 7/2 but goals could be a better angle to approach this one.

The Dutch scored 2 or more in 10 of 13 outings in 2022 and kept just four clean sheets so, with plenty of attacking talent on display, both teams to score looks a good option at 5/6.

Sweden look a little over-priced at 12/5 to beat Belgium this evening. The Roberto Martinez era is over for the Belgians and arguably that of the supposed ‘Golden Generation'. 12 of their World Cup squad won't be in Solna tonight as Domenico Tedesco takes charge for the first time.

The Swedes struggled in the Nations League, suffering relegation from League B and have included 41-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic in their squad. The mercurial striker has scored two international hat-tricks at the Friends Arena so don't rule out him adding to his 62 goals for his nation.

There's a clutch of games in the lower leagues in Scotland tonight and Queen's Park have the chance to open up a crucial seven point lead at the top of the Championship.

The Spiders are unbeaten in 10 at home – that home being Stenhhousemuir's Ochilview Park – and look backable tonight at 8/11 against an Arbroath side who are involved in a three-way battle to avoid the drop.

Falkirk‘s chances of going up as champions from League One were dealt what looks like a terminal blow at the weekend when they went down 1-0 to Queen of the South. That followed a 2-0 loss at leaders Dunfermline but there's still plenty to play for for the Bairns who have a Scottish Cup semi-final to look forward to. Kelty Hearts are the visitors this evening and they should get things back on track with a win

    PP are not paying out on a bet regarding Harry MacGuire. I had him in my bet builder to commit at least 1 foul and he did he was carded for a foul just before the Italian goal . The ref had played advantage but then carded him .PP are saying they use OPTA and not showing a foul. What yous think ?

    • adriang 9 months ago

      I didn’t see the match but according to Flashscore match report he was booked for “roughing”

      “This yellow card was deserved. The tackle by Harry Maguire (England) was quite harsh and Srdjan Jovanovic didn’t hesitate to show him a yellow card.”

      Good Luck

      I had a similar one with Busquets against Madrid. I really don’t see how it cannot be considered a foul if the referee “played the advantage”. Why would there be any need of advantage play if there wasn’t a foul committed? Your case is even stronger by the fact he got booked. What did he get booked for? I really detest the bookies sometimes.

      Thank you will try !

      PP have now got back to me.They are saying it is not regarded as a foul because the ref played advantage.The game must be stopped and free kick awarded. Total poppycock.

    • petet 9 months ago

      Unfortunately @chelseagirl PP‘s terms state:

      “For a foul to be awarded, play must be stopped and a free kick must be given. If the referee plays advantage and later distributes a yellow card once the ball goes out of play this will not count towards a foul as a free kick was never awarded.” so they are bulletproof in their decision. That said, I work in the industry and I was more than a little surprised by this although it’s not uncommon for different bookies to apply different rules to their bets.

      The one I always have to check is when tennis players retire from a game as some settle it as a void, others as a lost bet.
