Argentina narrowly escaped first round crashing out scare from Group D while France were unbeaten in Group C to advance. The two sides kick-off the knockout stages of the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Saturday at Kazan Arena. The performances from both the sides have been underwhelming thus far, although the French have been slightly better than the Argentines.
Speaking of the player’s availability, there is a question mark over the fitness of Samuel Umtiti. Hugo Lloris, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba will all return to the playing XI after the French side was rotated against Denmark. On the other hand, Argentina do not have any injury concerns or suspensions.
Once again, the spotlight would be on Lionel Messi. Can the Argentine, playing his fourth World Cup, move a step closer to the coveted trophy?
The odds are in favour of France, although you never know how the action will unfurl.
