France vs Argentina World Cup Tips
Of course, both teams are aiming for a quarter-final place in the world. No benefit in terms of motivation
State of form
Directly qualified for this 2018 World Cup and after a successful preparation (2 wins and 1 draw), France has made a first round of serious competition but not really exciting. After 2 wins won against Australia (1-0) and Peru (1-0), Didier Deschamps decided to install the team of “hairdressers” during the third day (0-0), which has released a very sad performance against Denmark (0-0). Solid behind, the Blues have still ripped the first place in Group C, just in front of the Scandinavians.
Author of a catastrophic world debut, Argentina has finally snatched the 2nd place in Pool D from extreme accuracy. Indeed, the players of Jorge Sampaoli began the tournament with a poor draw conceded against Iceland (1-1), before completely explode against Croatia (3-0). Fortunately, the Albiceleste hardly overthrown Nigeria during the final day (2-1) with a goal from Rojo in the 87th, thus getting his ticket to the 8th finals.
The staff for France vs Argentina
After running for the third match, Deschamps should hand the same eleven aligned against Peru. Captain Lloris will find the cages, Pavard his right lane and Umtiti his place of stopper. Pogba and Matuidi will accompany Kanté in the midfield, while Mbappé will reform the attacking trio with Griezmann and Giroud. Released injured against Denmark, the left side Hernandez is for the moment uncertain.
It’s hard to imagine a typical eleven for Argentina since Sampaoli has installed 3 different systems and a lot of players since the beginning of the competition. We still think that the starting team should look very much like the one facing Nigeria. In 4-3-3, goalkeeper N ° 3 Armani will again hold, as will the defense Mercado-Otamendi-Rojo-Tagliafico, midfielder Enzo Perez-Banega-Mascherano and the attacking trio Messi-Di Maria-Higuain . The big losers are called Caballero, Agüero, Biglia, Pavon or Lo Celso.
Probable compositions for France – Argentina (appointment at 15h for the official compositions):
France: Lloris – Hernandez, Umtiti, Varane, Pavard – Kanté, Pogba – Matuidi, Griezmann, Mbappe – Giroud. .
Argentina: Armani – Mercado, Otamendi, Rojo, Tagliafico – Perez, Mascherano, Banega – Messi, Higuain, Di Maria.
Prediction France vs Argentina
Still as friably defensively, Argentina could be punished by a team of France much more compact and organized.
