France – Argentina Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 03:15

The first last-16 match of the 2018 World Cup in Russia sees 1998 champions France take on two-time winners (and 2014 runners-up) Argentina meet at the Kazan Arena. Group C winners France will be looking to beat Group D runners-up Argentina for just the third time in their history, with the match taking place on Saturday June 30. Kick-off is at 5pm local time.

Unsurprisingly, Argentina made several changes Sergio Aguero one of the other high-profile players to drop to the bench, though he was brought on and played his part in Argentina Football team grabbing the all-important late winner. Winning goalscorer Marcos Rojo also returned to the starting line-up, with Jorge Sampaoli opting for a back four. Franco Armani made his Argentina debut in goal in the final group game as Willy Caballero paid the price for his clanger in the defeat to Croatia.

They shipped as many as three to Croatia in the second round and we wonder how they intend to stop the star-studded attacking line of Frances here. Argentinas defensive line might be the biggest problem for such bet as Jorge Sampaolis men conceded at least once in all of three group matches even though the opposition included Iceland and Nigeria there.

In their last meeting at the World Cup finals Argentina recorded a 2-1 win over France. All eyes will be on Kazan Arena when France and Argentina face each other in the last 16 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. Leo Messi opened his goal-scoring account and the Barcelona striker will be looking to give Argentina fans yet another reason for celebration when Jorge Sampaolis men face France in Kazan. Anyhow, both teams are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Saturdays football match and we predict that the game will go into extra-time. Les Tricolores have been struggling to find their best form at the showpiece tournament, whereas la Albiceleste were more than fortunate to book their place in the knockout stages. Kylian Mbappe, who has been producing fine performances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, will be the man to watch in Didier Deschamps team.

France vs Argentina Prediction

The battle of the hookers will be key in this game but Agustin Creevy can come out on top and that can help his side claim the win in their opening game as they look to match their efforts in 2015, where they made the semi-finals. This game between France and Argentina could go a long way to determining the fate of both teams at the tournament. England are favourites to win Pool C but either of these two are capable of progressing to the quarter-finals.

Expert Verdict: Argentina will rue not topping Group D when they take on France in their last-16 fixture. France will take confidence from Argentinas recent record, however - a run which includes heavy defeats to Spain, Croatia and Nigeria. France topped Group C without looking fully convincing, while Argentina salvaged their place in the second round with a late winner in their final group game. While unconvincing themselves, they got results when it mattered - and can add to Argentinas woes.

With none of the replacements standing out, it is likely the XI that started the second group game against Peru will be back in action against Argentina. Didier Deschamps rested players against Denmark, with the squad rotation making for a scrappy game of few chances. That would mean Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Samuel Umtiti, Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Kylian Mbappe all returning to the starting line-up.

I can't really say who I think will win this as the pre game stats are so 50/50, so for that exact reason I've gone for Argentina to not lose by more than 4 points. Today is what counts and whoever comes out victorious I'm sure all will be forgotten. Argentina won't forget when 12 years ago they got a stunning victory in the opening game of the 2007 world cup in France, against France. Now they both meet again in the group stage. Neither side are coming into this with beaming confidence, France had a miserable six nations finishing 4th, then we have Argentina without a test win for more than a year. Here we have a cracking game between France and Argentina.
