Here is one way:

l1 = {{True, False}, {False, True}, {False, False}} ;
l2 = {{True, False, False}, {True, True, True}, {False, True, False}} ;



Count[Transpose[{l1, l2}],
   _?(#1[[1,2]] == False && #1[[2,3]] == True & )]

0

Changing the criterion to L1[[row,2 ]]==False and L2[[row,3]]==False


Count[Transpose[{l1, l2}],
   _?(#1[[1,2]] == False && #1[[2,3]] == False & )]
