France had already earned a berth in next year’s tournament with victories in all six of its game, giving it a total of 18 points and the top spot in Group B. That leaves Greece and the Netherlands to fight for second place and the automatic qualification that comes with it.
The Greeks are sitting in second place with 12 points (4 wins and 2 losses) while the Dutch have nine points (3 wins and 2 losses) but have played one fewer game.
History favors the Dutch. These two teams last played each other on Sept. 7 in the Netherlands, and the home team won 3-0, scoring three times in the first half. That continued a trend in which the Netherlands has beaten Greece in eight out of their last 10 matches, with Greece’s only victory coming in a friendly match in 2016.
Since that loss, Greece beat Gibraltar 5-0 and then topped the Republic of Ireland 2-0 last week in Dublin on goals from Georgios Giakoumakis and Georgios Masouras. A win on Monday would significantly boost its chances of qualifying directly for the tournament.
The Netherlands is coming off a disappointing home loss to France on Friday, as Kylian Mbappe scored twice. Mbappe scored at the 7-minute mark and again at the 53-minute mark, giving France a cushion. Quilindschy Hartman scored at the 83-minute mark to cut the deficit in half, but the Netherlands ran out of time to notch the equalizer.
Greece are now three points ahead of the Dutch in second place in the Group B table after Ronald Koeman's side lost 2-1 to France
Greece face the Netherlands in a huge Euro 2024 qualifier at the same time as the Republic of Ireland take on Gibraltar in Portugal.
Following their 2-0 win over the Boys in Green last Friday night, Greece are now three points ahead of the Dutch in second place in the Group B table after Ronald Koeman's side lost 2-1 to France in Amsterdam.
The Netherlands do have a game in hand over the Greeks though and come into this clash as favourites to emerge victorious.
Greece will take on Netherlands in a battle for the second spot in Group B of the Euro qualifiers on Monday. They are second and third respectively, behind leaders France who have all their games so far.
When these two teams met back in September 2023, Netherlands beat Greece 3-0 but Monday's hosts will be banking on home advantage to pick up a win in this reverse fixture.
Greece's form should give them enough confidence - they have won their last two fixtures with an aggregate scoreline of 7-0. Netherlands, on the other hand, are heading into the game on the back of a defeat at the hands of France.
Following their victorious encounter against Ireland, Greece head coach Gus Poyet is likely to be cautious about making changes to a winning strategy in Athens.
We can expect to see Atlanta United striker Giakoumakis in the starting lineup once again. Poyet also has no fresh injuries or suspensions as concerns for Monday's game
Netherlands have their fair share of fitness problems and those were further compounded during the first half of their defeat against France. Striker Wout Weghorst encountered an unknown injury, and was replaced by Donyell Malen after just 38 minutes.
Verbruggen, Tijjani Reijnders, and Joey Veerman also earned their debuts with the Oranje in the previous match and could feature once again on Monday.
