Argentina v France: Betting Tips
Argentina needed a last-gasp goal from nobody else but Marcos Rojo to break down the Nigerian side and book their place in the last 16 round at the World Cup in Russia. They are now set for the mouth-watering clash with the European heavyweights France in the battle for the quarterfinal of the tournament.
It was anything but an easy route for La Celeste in Group D where they came into the last round fixture with no more than a single point in pockets, following a draw with the Iceland and a disappointing 0-3 loss to group winners Croatia. We were minutes from seeing an end to Lionel Messi’s international career as the Super Eagles had the 1-1 draw before the Manchester United centre-back bagged the amazing volley home to bring Argentinians into delirium and keep their World Cup dream alive.
Les Bleus did not impress either, but they’ve had a much easier path towards the knockout stage, winning seven out of nine possible points to top the Group C. Whilst Deschamps’ men struggled to create in the final third in spite of possessing a world-class quality there with the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe in their ranks, the defensive line did look pretty solid shipping just one goal in three group stage affairs.
Argentina v France: Head to Head Stats
Argentina have a superb head to head record against France.
La Celeste won each of past four meetings with Les Bleus conceding just once in the process.
Their last meeting saw a 0-2 victory for Los Gauchos in a friendly played back in February 2009.
Argentina v France: Prediction
France have to be considered at least slight favourites following Argentina’s sloppy set of performances in the group stage. The South American outfit looks to be disorganized as Jorge Sampaoli obviously lost any sort of authority over players. Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano create the starting lineup and we doubt the Argentines can go far under such circumstances.
France are much more solid at the back and we believe it should make the difference here. The main betting pick will be France to win at the odds of 13/10 (2.30), while you can alternatively try with Les Bleus to score two or more goals at the 2.62 (13/8) odds.
