France vs Argentina predictions and betting tips for the first of the World Cup last 16 matches to be played. Kick-off is at 3pm on Saturday 30th June and our football tipster has picked the three best bets for the match in the betting preview below.
We are treated to a mouthwatering start to get the latter stages of the World Cup started and our France vs Argentina predictions below indicate we’re going to get a close encounter between two teams who haven’t exactly lit the World Cup up just yet.
France are slight favourites to qualify for the quarter final and to win this match in the 90 minutes they are 6/4 at Betway. They were one of the pre-tournament favourites but haven’t exactly set the tournament alight just yet and their first two wins were not convincing, however they did get the job done and played out a predictable 0-0 draw with Denmark in their last group match to ensure both sides qualified. Argentina needed an 86th minute winner in their last group game to get to this point and they look totally unbalanced and without any real defensive quality – one thing that is a positive is Lionel Messi and their striking options.
The first of our France vs Argentina predictions is for France to win the match. Argentina look really vunerable defensively and with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Dembele and Mbappe in their team, the French will surely get plenty of opportunities. Lionel Messi is capable of winning matches on his own but doesn’t seem to do it as often for his country. The best odds for France to win are 6/4 at Betway.
In their opening match France played without Giroud but the following two games seen Giroud start with Griezmann in behind, it is debatable which formation works best for the French but for our anytime goalscorer tip we’re going to look for some better value and go for one of the France wingers to get on the scoresheet. Kylian Mbappe scored the winner against Peru and given the Argentinan defensive worries, his pace should cause trouble here so we’re having a bet on Mbappe to score anytime. The best odds are 27/10 at 888Sport.
The final selection for today’s France vs Argentina betting tips is in the correct score market. We have already predicted a France win here but it would be no surprise at all to see Argentina get on the scoresheet. With Messi, Higuain, Aguero and Di Maria in their ranks they will surely get chances. The selection for our correct score prediction is France to win 2-1 and the best odds for this are 10/1 at bet365.

These two sides haven’t met since 2009 when Argentina ran out 2-0 winners. They also won a 2007 friendly 1-0. Their last meeting at a World Cup was in 1978 and once again, the South American side got the victory.
