France vs Argentina | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds

France are hoping Didier Deschamps is the man to lead them to the World Cup final just like he did as captain in 1998.  The French have not performed to their best in recent World Cup finals and despite making the final of Euro 2016, they fell at the final hurdle.  This match will be a big test. Argentina struggled badly in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup and their troubles have continued for much of the tournament.  They reached the final in 2014, only to be defeated by Germany and would be more than happy to grace the showpiece occasion again in Moscow.

Match Preview

France have not hit the heights their talent suggests they could but they have done enough to progress to the Round of 16 as group winners.  The French will be hoping they can grow into the tournament and have the attacking threat to damage the Argentina defence in this game. Argentina have been difficult to watch at this World Cup and their performances have not been as good as expected.  However, they scraped through the group stages and have given themselves a chance of reaching the latter stages if they can up their game.

France

France began the 2018 World Cup with a 2-1 win over Australia and required a late, deflected goal to take 3 points.  They endured another tough evening against Peru, who played well but France scored the only goal of the game to secure their place in the Round of 16.  The last game against Denmark had nothing riding on it and it showed with a 0-0 draw.

France vs Argentina Head to Head

France and Argentina have met 11 times in their history, with the most recent game coming in 2009, which Argentina won 2-0.  Argentina have won 3 of the last 4 meetings between the two teams, including a 2-1 win at the 1978 World Cup.

Odds and Predictions

Perhaps owing more to their own erratic performances than the greatness of France, Argentina come into this match as the outsiders with the bookmakers, priced at 3.70. The French have not been brilliant but have shown more consistency than Argentina and can be backed at 2.30 to win the game, with the draw on offer at 3.10. If Argentina defend in the same manner as the group stages, the French forwards will have plenty of chances to score in this game.  Do not be surprised if we see many opportunities, with the bulk for the French and over 2.5 goals is 2.50. Kylian Mbappe started on the bench for the match against Denmark but is sure to be in the starting XI for this game.  The pacey forward has looked France’s most lively attacker at the tournament and is  to get the opening goal of the game.  Lionel Messi is clearly Argentina’s biggest threat and  to score the first goal of the match.

France vs Argentina Top Betting Tip: France (2-1)

Both teams are capable of scoring goals in this game and it will come down to which team can keep the chances at a premium.  Judging by previous matches in the tournament, Argentina could struggle to cope with the French attacking threat and the European nation look set to progress to the quarter-final.
