Predictions 13 – 16.10.2023

Netherlands vs France | Euro – Qualifiers

13/10/2023 19:45

Prediction: 1-1

In Amsterdam, the Netherlands face France in one of the most captivating matches of this European round. The Netherlands, tied with Greece at 9 points, albeit with a game in hand, are striving for second place to secure qualification for the European Championships. Meanwhile, France leads the group with 15 points, having won all their matches without conceding a single goal and guaranteeing their qualification, with a final match at home against Gibraltar. In the first leg, France displayed technical superiority, winning 4-0, and we expect a similar performance in the return leg.

The Netherlands may have suffered a 4-0 loss in the first leg, but they bounced back with convincing victories against Ireland and, notably, Greece. Coming off a strong World Cup performance, they are far from a national team in crisis, even though they haven’t reached the status of a footballing superpower. France, after reaching the World Cup final, continued their strong form in the qualifying tournament, winning all five matches without conceding a goal. The friendly defeat to Germany had little impact.

  • France won all five matches in the group.
  • France is yet to concede a goal.
  • The Netherlands have accumulated 9 points after 4 games.
  • France triumphed 4-0 in the first leg.
  • The Netherlands have some injured players, including Gakpo, and limited depth upfront.

Argentina vs Paraguay | WC Qualifiers – South America

13/10/2023 00:00

Prediction: 3-1

On the third day of the World Championship qualifiers, Argentina, the reigning champions, are set to return to the field. The Albiceleste is hosting Paraguay with the aim of continuing their positive streak, having secured 1-0 victories against Ecuador and 3-0 wins against Bolivia in the first two matches.

Argentina’s path looks promising, while Paraguay’s start to the qualifiers has been shaky, with a 1-0 loss to Venezuela and a draw against Peru. Currently, the guests are in sixth place with one point, which is the last qualifying position for the World Championship. However, they must improve their performance as they face tougher opponents going forward.

  • Argentina has won all of its last twelve matches.
  • The Albiceleste has kept a clean sheet in six consecutive games.
  • Paraguay has suffered four defeats in its last six matches.
  • In the two World Cup qualifying matches, Paraguay has yet to score.
  • Four of the last six matches have ended without both teams scoring (No Goal), including the last two.
