Netherlands vs France. Offense vs defense. Netherlands is known most for their high pace handball and France for their tough tight defense. Tricky match with Netherlands taking a big scalp in easily taking out Brazil in the QF. France stood for a crazy turnaround after only scoring 5 goals in 1st half. Picked up their pace in 2nd half and manage to get a overtime win vs Spain. These two played each other in the first group match ending 14-18 to France after 6-10 in halftime. Both Wester and Leynaud had 40%+ in that match. Netherlands have the wider squad and more players that are a threat while France gets a bit more stuck in their offense looking a lot towards Lacrabere to take the shoots. France knows their strength is in defense and don´t tend to bring up the pace or get caught in the quicker pace of teams like Netherlands. Think Netherlands have picked up their play since their meet in the group but will it be enough against the defense of France. Like always when France plays the lines are real low. 22,5 goals in halftime is a line that France have gone above twice, vs Sweden and Russia. Netherlands kept Brazil to 11 goals at halftime in their QF, and imo Brazil is a stronger offensive team then France. Glauser/Leynaud have 40 resp. 39% over 6 matches and Jankovic/Wester have 36 resp 30%. Think we will see a tight first half with few goals. Under 22,5 goals in halftime is the prediction.
