    "Two down, two to go - Zidane is on course for one of the most remarkable comebacks in history." I've copied down the image link for your reference. thank you

    Re: the meaning of "Two down, two to go"

    I don't follow soccer, but the expression means that, there was an objective or goal of four incidents, and he has accomplished two of them.

    Perhaps there are four games in the series and they have won two of them already?

    Maybe you have four tests to take and you've finished two. You have two down and two to go.

    It probably should be "two done" but the idiom is "two down."

    Two matches down = the two matches France has won; They now have two to go = to win two more matches to win the series.
