PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The knockout stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia begin on Saturday, with France and Argentina set to meet in Kazan for the first Round of 16 encounter. These two heavyweights of international football are always among the favourites to lift the Trophy, and boast of some of the game’s biggest superstars, from Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann to Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria. It is a duel to warm the hearts of every devotee of the beautiful game.

L’Equipe Tricolore navigated their way out of the group stages with two wins and a draw. While Didier Deschamps’ star-studded squad have not yet faced a truly challenging test, they have certainly not dazzled either. The 1998 world champions will have to step things up at least one more gear. Will conserving energy and resting some of their biggest names in the last group match against Denmark work to France’s advantage? The Europeans seem to have the measure of South American teams, having gone eight FIFA World Cup matches unbeaten against these sides – but the last nation to defeat Les Bleus in the competition in 1978 was Argentina – who else?

Having finished as runners-up at Brazil 2014, La Albiceleste narrowly avoided suffering the same fate as reigning champions Germany in the group stages. The tournament now begins in earnest for the two-time World Cup winners. A tough start to the competition could be exactly the motivation the South Americans need to raise their game against better teams and harness their immense attacking potential, which centres around Lionel Messi. Argentina have emerged victorious from both of the pair’s two previous World Cup meetings, ultimately reaching the Final on both occasions.

Possible line-ups
France: Hugo Lloris; Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti, Lucas Hernandez; Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante; Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele; Olivier Giroud

Argentina: Franco Armani; Gabriel Mercado, Nicolas Otamendi, Marcos Rojo, Nicolas Tagliafico; Ever Banega, Javier Mascherano, Enzo Perez, Angel Di Maria; Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain

France has won its qualifying group with small efforts, having scored just three goals and conceded only once from the penalty spot. Didier Deschamps knows how to act further and use the forces and across a whole distance. Argentina on the contrary showed a poorly organized play with a lot of bewildered footballers on the field including Messi the captain. Argentina’s coach Jorge Sampaoli cannot define an optimal line-up within a whole tournament. We believe the French side will add a hidden potential both human and tactical to win this game. As minimum we expect the hosts will not lose tonight and recommend to bet on their win with an Asian handicap of 0 featured with a good coefficient of 1.70.
