France vs Argentina World Cup Prediction

The Kazan Arena takes on the challenge of the first round of the 2018 World Cup between France and Argentina. This is one of the most mediated matches of this round of the competition and involves two teams that were expected to make it to the competition in the first place. It is a fact that the French and Argentines have revealed prevalence of the defensive aspects and they only had 3 goals each in 3 games in the group stage, evidencing some offensive ineptitude.

It should be noted that both teams usually play with many athletes with defensive characteristics, especially the “Alviceleste”.
