Argentina vs France Match Odds

Team  Odds On Bet365
Argentina  2.80
Croatia  2.80

Bet365 has given both Argentina and France the same betting odds at the time of this writing as there is very little difference between both teams.

However, there are small factors that must be considered carefully before you bet as our experts believe that these small factors will make a big difference in the end.

Argentina played the first semi-final and hence they one extra day of rest when compared to France who have just 3.5 days to recover.

That one extra day for recovery that Argentina has to recover will make a big difference, especially during the second half of the final.

2022 Fifa World Cup fINAL Prediction – France vs Argentina

Lionel Scaloni has always been very wise with using all 26 players for Argentina during this World Cup.

Only four players have been regular starters for Argentina and the rotation has not only given all of the players a chance to play at the World Cup but it has eased the pressure and workload on the main playing XI.

Argentina are also going to have most of the crowd support at the Lusail stadium as Lionel Messi will be the most loved player on the field and the crowd support will add pressure to France.

These factors give Argentina that extra edge and that’s why we are going to back them to win.

Recommended Betting Tip: Argentina (2.80)

France vs Argentina: How Did They Reach 2022 FIFA WC Finals?

Argentina demolished Croatia in the semi-finals and won 3-0. Julian Alvarez set up the first goal which gave Messi a penalty kick that he converted.

Alvarez went on to score two more goals that deflated Croatia and helped Argentina progress to the finals.

France went 1-0 up against Morocco after just 5 minutes and ended up scoring another goal in the second half to win 2-0.

However, it was a difficult match for France as Morocco gave it everything and kept France under constant pressure. To France’s credit, they never conceded a goal and held up well under pressure.

Argentina vs France Match Betting Options

The last time these two sides faced each other in a World Cup match was in the round of 16 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

It turned out to be a banger as a total of 7 goals were scored and France came out on top with a 4-3 scoreline. Kylian Mbappe was the star of this game as he scored two crucial goals in the 64th and 68th minute to send Argentina home.

France have done incredibly well even without Karim Benzema and Paul Pogba missing at Qatar which shows the depth of talent that is available to coach Didier Deschamps. Their key players will once again be Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud.

All Eyes On Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi is just one game away from achieving a childhood dream of lifting the World Cup. They say if Messi wins the World Cup for Argentina, he will be on the same platform as Diego Maradonna in terms of cult-like status.

While Argentina have performed well as a team after their shock loss to Saudi Arabia in the opening game, we think they will need the individual brilliance of Leo Messi to beat France.

Recommended Betting Tip: Argentina (2.80)

FIFA World Cup Final Betting Tip For Top Goal Scorers

Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe are both teammates for PSG in France.

The two players are currently tied with 5 goals each in Qatar and are battling it out to see who will win the Golden Boot award. Olivier Giroud and Julian Alvarez are next in line with 4 goals each.

We feel Messi has a slight advantage over the others in scoring and winning the Golden Boot award because Messi is the first-choice penalty taker for Argentina.

If France does concede a penalty, it gives Messi an extra opportunity to get to 6 goals.

Recommended Betting Tip: Lionel Messi
