Argentina vs France

Calendar 18th December
Football icon kick off 15:00

Both teams have netted in 4 of France’s 6 games at the World Cup. That includes to conceding to the likes of Australia, Poland and Denmark.

Their defence is questionable and that was shown against England, which forced Deschamps to make changes.

I struggle to see how they contain Messi and co for a full 90 minutes.

Similar story for Argentina. They’ve conceded to Saudi Arabia, Australia and of course the Netherlands.

Their defence really doesn’t convince me. It’s full of rash players like Otamendi, Romero and Acuna. They don’t have a true shield in front either, with Fernandez working more as a ball carrier than a ball winner.

Both sides have averaged an xG of above 2 throughout the competition. Of course, they both netted in the prior meeting

Football icon Kylian Mbappe 2+ Shots On target
Arrow down

Mbappe is the tournament’s top goal scorer, the PSG froward has notched up 5 goals in Qatar. He averages 1.88 shots on target P/90 minutes. He delivered 2 shots on target in that previous meeting and he was devastating in the 2018 final against Croatia, I expect him to step up again on the biggest stage.

Football icon Nicolas Otamendi To Be Carded
Arrow down

Otamendi is one of a small group of players to be booked twice at the tournament. Along with his partner Romero, which enforces that rash nature I’m talking about.

Otamendi has always been a card magnet, throughout his career. Not only thanks to how he plays but also with his love of chatting back to the ref and also getting involved in altercations with other players.

I can guarantee you that if there’s a bust up, you’ll see Otamendi move quicker to get there than to any ball throughout the game. He’s the favourite to be booked for a reason. He was booked late on in that 2018 meeting.
