Argentina will go head to head with the reigning champions France at the Lusail Iconic Stadium on Sunday afternoon which could turn out to be a fierce 2022 FIFA World Cup Final. La Albiceleste defeated Croatia in an emphatic manner as they recorded a 3-0 victory over them while keeping a clean sheet and dominating the game in the final third. Similarly, Les Blues managed to produce a splendid 2-0 win against Morocco as they held them off in the final quarter of the match to keep their hopes of defending their title alive. It all boils down to this final showdown where Lionel Messi’s side will be bidding against Kylian Mbappe’s team to strive for international supremacy.

Argentina Vs France: Talking Tactics

Lionel Scaloni will make use of the 4-3-3 formation this time and he might make a couple of changes for the upcoming fixture as Marcos Acuna could make his way back into the playing XI. Leandro Paredes is likely to drop back to the bench making way for Angel Di Maria in the final third.

Didier Deschamps will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation which has been working for them; however, he is expected to make a couple of changes for the upcoming clash as Youssouf Fofana takes a spot on the bench making way for Adrien Rabiot’s return to the midfield.

Team News

Argentina

Scaloni should only be working with one injury doubt in the form of Alejandro Gomez, who has not yet recovered from an ankle sprain and may only make the bench at best. Lionel Messi was seen stressing over his hamstring in the semi-finals against Croatia but there is nothing to worry about as the Argentine captain will make sure that he starts will full capacity for the upcoming contest.

Argentina Predicted XI

E. Martinez; Molina, Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; De Paul, Fernandez, Mac Allister; Di Maria, Messi, Alvarez

France

Deschamps has been handed with fresh concerns in the backline as Dayot Upamecano joins Raphael Varane and Ibrahima Konate in the sick bay. Adrien Rabiot was under the weather for the semi-finals against Morocco but now seems to have fully recovered from his illness ahead of the final showdown. The French tactician will likely push Upamecano and Varane to start at the heart of France’s defence but Konate remains doubtful.

France Predicted XI

Lloris; Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez; Tchouameni, Rabiot; Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe; Giroud
