Why Should I Bet on France vs Argentina?
The paths these two nations have taken to get to the round of 16 couldn’t have been more different. Les Bleus topped Group C with an impressive seven points from a possible nine and, despite the catcalls from the French media back home, Deschamps’ side haven’t broken a sweat doing it. Argentina have lived life on the edge and have recorded every possible result during their three group games as they crashed the party late on to send Nigeria home.
When these two meet in Kazan, the obvious result looks like a French win given the precarious situation in the Argentinian camp and the unpredictability of this team. Betstar has a French win at 2.25.
France vs Argentina Preview
Marcos Rojo’s stunning volley late on against Nigeria would have sent Argentina into meltdown as Messi and his charges pulled it out the hat when all hope seemed gone. It was a moment to remember in the World Cup and capped off a thrilling encounter with the Nigerians who can leave with honour and dignity.
France will be hoping their organized style will overcome any Argentinian challenge. If the French keep their shape and deal with any threat Messi could pose, they will win this game reasonably comfortably.
France vs Argentina Score Prediction
The French team haven’t been setting the world alight in front of goal and, for all their domination in Group C, they have only managed three goals. Argentina have only netted three times as well and a relatively low scoring affair looks to be on the cards here. Punters can back a 2-1 scoreline with Bet365 at 11.00.
France vs Argentina Odds
Two of Argentina’s three group games saw over 2.5 goals scored, with the South Americans having conceded in all of them. France should find their goalscoring boots here and, like every team that has played Argentina so far at the World Cup, breach their defence. Over 2.5 goals is priced at 2.55 with Ladbrokes.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
Argentina seem to find a goal when they need it and France have an impressive set of attacking options that will prey on an erratic Argentinian defence. Both teams to score can be backed at 2.10 with Betfair.
- Argentina have qualified for the round of 16 for their fourth consecutive World Cup.
- Messi’s goal against Nigeria was his first World Cup goal in 662 minutes of football.
