France v Argentina Betting Preview
Neither side has shown anything particularly impressive in terms of performances in Russia as yet, with France’s qualification looking more straightforward than it actually was and Argentina only reaching the knock-out stage by the skin of their teeth.
In both cases, tactics and team selection have come under question and it would seem a fair bet that whichever team exits the 2018 World Cup at this stage will be looking for a new head coach within a matter of days.
There has been concern over the quality of Argentina’s squad since well before the World Cup 2018 finals and the over-reliance on one Lionel Messi. The reality is that defeat to France may well signal the end of Lionel Messi’s international career.
If Portugal beats Uruguay and Argentina beats France, it will be Argentina vs Portugal in one of the most anticipated World Cup games of all-time. Messi vs Ronaldo. RIP Twitter if this happens. pic.twitter.com/BhnqCCI1WL

France has the quality throughout their squad that Argentina lack and certainly look a better balanced team. The 7/5 (2.40) betting odds on a France win in 90-minutes with Betway looks decent given Argentina’s longstanding issues.
Griezmann to Score?
Antoine Griezmann hasn’t been at his best as yet, but taking the 5/1 (6.00) on him scoring the First Goal with Paddy Power could prove to be an astute investment. A 2-1 Correct Score punt on a France victory with bet365* at 10/1 also looks attractive.
