After smooth sailing in Group C and a top spot secured in a goalless draw against Denmark with a rotated line-up on Matchday 3, France meet Argentina at Kazan’ Arena for their round of 16 clash in great spirits.
They’ve been very confident but there’s now a lot to prove for Didier Deschamps’ men, who look to capitalize on the South Americans’ woes
Indeed, Argentina have seen a very shaky spell of form and this comes as a disappointment for what many see as the last big competition for Lionel Messi’s generation. They’ve netted three goals in three games and saw a thrashing loss to Croatian Blazers along the way, which has few believing they can win the tournament.
Jorge Sampaoli, the Argentina boss has no injury problems ahead of the match.
France Coach Didier Deschamps’ certainly has no worries too. Olivier Giroud is expected to lead the line with Pogba back in midfield.
Argentina likely starting XI
Caballero – Salvio, Otamendi, Rojo, Tagliafico – Mascherano, Biglia (Lo Celso) – Dybala (Meza), Messi, Di Maria – Aguero.
France likely starting XI
Lloris – Sidibe, Varane, Umtiti, Medy – Kante, Pogba, Matuidi – Griezmann, Mbappe, Giroud.
