Head to Head

-Both Argentina and France have won the FIFA World Cup twice, which indicates that both countries have had a similar level of success. Argentina won the World Cup in 1978 and 1986, while France more recently won it in 1998 and 2018.

-Argentina is now on a 36-game winning streak and didn’t drop a single game during their successful Copa America campaign. The Albicelestes have been undefeated for almost three years and lost their most recent game in 2019.

-Argentina’s previous match against France saw them give up four goals after keeping two clean sheets against the French in 2007 and 2009. On that particular day, Kylian Mbappe was practically unstoppable, winning a penalty and scoring twice to eliminate Argentina from the competition.

-In their last three games against the European powerhouses, Argentina has a solid scoring record versus France, tallying a total of six goals.

Lionel Messi will.be fully prepared to end his international career with a title. Nevertheless, the No. 10 player and Argentina will not be underestimating the opponents after seeing the extended periods of pressure Les Bleus endured in their semifinal matchup against Morocco. The Albiceleste are built well to control the ball against France’s defence and counter the speed. Despite having several injuries before the tournament began, France has been outstanding, destroying opponents with speed and accuracy on the counterattack led by Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann. They are a difficult opponent, especially with No. 9 Olivier Giroud in outstanding form.

There is hardly any difference between the two teams’ probability of winning in the ordinance and their odds of winning the World Cup. Some bookmakers even divided the difference evenly, unable to favour one side over the other with both the teams having top class players.
