France looks to defend their World Cup title facing an Argentina team that has not won the tournament since 1978.
This is the third time these soccer giants have faced off in the World Cup and they met in the last tournament in Russia in 2018 where France ousted Argentina in the round of 16.
This match is every even with Argentina the slightest of favorites at +175 with France at +180 and a draw at +285.

The French booked their ticket in the finals by beating Morocco in the last match.
Like Argentina they were not facing a great attack but they scored early to throw Las Atlas off their game.
The clean sheet in the Morocco match was the first by the French in the tournament and the defense is a big of a concern. No shock their facing Messi and company. Mbappé has not scored in the last two matches but he has had a lot of help and Olivier Giroud has four goals in the tournament.
Antoine Griezman leads this World Cup with 21 chances created for teammates. The French have been solid at getting chances to score and they must also look for the counterattack when the fast Argentina attack presses forward.
While there was a big issue with a virus in the French team it looks to have passed and there are no major injury concerns.
Argentina comes into the final after beating Croatia 3-0 in the semis. While they lost the time of possession battle, they kept a clean sheet allowing only two shots on target.
While three goals were impressive one was a gift of a penalty that should not have been and another was a little lucky after a couple of ricochets.
Lionel Messi is tied with France’s Kylian Mbappé in the race for the Golden Boot, and likely Golden Ball as well, with five goals each. Messi has a goal and an assist in each of the last three matches and has scored in each of the three knockout stage matches.
Teammate Julián Álvarez has four goals and the duo will be a handful for Les Bleus defense.
Look for Argentina to try to get the attack going on long balls. The Albiceleste kept a clean sheet in their last match but that was facing a less than dynamic Croatia attack.
They had given up three goals in their previous two matches and they have to shore up their defense facing Mbappé and company.
Marcos Acuna and Gonzolo Montiel both missed the Croatia match due to suspension but they should be ready for the starting 11 in the finals.
Alejandro Gomez has an ankle injury and if he plays he will likely have to come on as a sub.
Free Argentina vs. France Final Prediction: Argentina Wins 2-1 in extra time
Oh man, what a final. We have two superstars and two soccer giants facing off on the world’s biggest stage. Each team has a great attack and while I think this will be a low scoring affair each team will score.
Don’t look for too many scoring chances with each team being careful pressing forward. Just like there will be pretty even time of possession, as I see this match ending in a 1-1 draw.
I like Argentina to end up with the win, as I think they will score in extra time.
