France (@1.72) vs Argentina (@2.2)

Our Prediction:

France will win

France – Argentina Match Prediction | 26-08-2019 03:15

France have won five of their last seven games and have drawn the other two. They had previously beaten Russia, Republic of Ireland and Italy in friendlies and, at the World Cup, saw off Australia and Peru to book their second-round place. Kylian Mbappe scored a late equaliser against the USA in their final warm-up game - the only other game they had not won prior to the Denmark match.

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. In their last meeting at the World Cup finals Argentina recorded a 2-1 win over France. 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. 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. 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. 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.

Messi and a late Marcos Rojo goal saved Argentinas World Cup hopes last time out, however. Argentinas victory against Nigeria was only their second in their last five matches the other coming against minnows Haiti in their only pre-World Cup game as Lionel Messi grabbed a hat-trick and Sergio Aguero scored. Aguero scored again but Messi missed a penalty in the draw with Iceland, before Willy Caballeros costly error and some sleepy defending led to the 3-0 defeat against Croatia.

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. 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.
