Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Argentina vs. France at the Qatar 2022 World Cup Finals | Group Stage, World Cup Qatar 2022

  • Where: Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail, Qatar
  • When: Sunday, December 18, 6 pm local time

Argentina and France are the last teams standing at the World Cup in Qatar. They clash in the finals, and to be fair, deserve this chance to fight for the World Cup title. Overall, these two units are the best in the tournament, showing the most and beating all of their rivals with more or less, a routine procedure. Also, they have the best individuals, on one side Messi and Alvarez, while on the other, Mbappe and Griezmann, plus the veteran Giroud, who is in combination for the Golden Boot.

Argentina vs. France Preview

Argentina

The Gauchos cruised past Croatia in the semis, trashing the silver medalists from the previous World Cup, 3-0. They got even for the defeat in the group stage back then, and now want to avenge one more loss, as France eliminated Argentina four years ago. 

Messi showed his magic in the knockout stage, being the pivotal player in Scaloni’s unit. The way he handled the Croatian defense was magnificent. On the other hand, Julian Alvarez is the surprise of the tournament, with four goals, and an indispensable contribution to the attack.

Argentina scored at least two goals in all the games but the opening one, the famous loss to Saudi Arabia, 2-1. One by one, Mexico, Poland, Australia, Netherlands and now Croatia, all felt the power of the Argentinian attack.

France

Meanwhile, France has scored 13 goals so far, and they had one game too in which they couldn’t net twice, but it was a match without competitive meaning for them against Tunisia. Mbappe has five goals, Giroud four, yet they two aren’t as important as Griezmann, the playmaker and the soul of this crew.

He compensates Pogba’s and Kante’s absences, playing a much different role than he used to do in the past. He is the top chance-creator in the World Cup and the key link in France’s transition. 

French defense isn’t playing very well in Qatar, and we often saw it making cardinal mistakes. That’s why the game against Morocco was the first for them with a clean sheet here, and even then, the Gauls had massive luck, as Moroccans missed quite a few big chances.

Argentina vs France Head-to-Head Games

In Russia, France beat Argentina in the round of 16, 4-3, in a roller coaster game. It was the moment when everyone realized that the Gauls had come to win the trophy. The two sides met twice more at the World Cups, in 1978, when Argentina won, 2-1, and in 1930, when Argentina won too, 1-0.

Argentina and  France Prediction

Both sides have excellent offenses, with superstars who can create chances and score without help from their teammates. As for the defenses, we need to acknowledge that they present weaker parts of the respective lineups, which is why our pick here is for both teams to score. 

Our verdict: Both teams to score
