France emerges as a favorite against a grown Argentina

France looks slightly favorite after its devaluation prior to Qatar, thanks to the exceptional bomber it possesses and a relentless ship in each line, against an Argentina that recovered from the initial bump, in perhaps the most anticipated World Cup duel in many decades.

The French ship, commanded by the infallible striker Kylian Mbappé, has everything to win against the troupe of genius Lionel Messi, the main duel between a host of individual kill or be killed matches.

Both the French and gauchos will go for their third World Cup, the second time that such an event happens (the previous one was in 1970, Brazil-Italy).

In the World Cup matches, the albiceleste won two (1-0, in Uruguay 1930; 2-1, in Argentina 1978); against a European victory (3-4, in Russia).

Argentina will seek to match its archrival Brazil (Korea-Japan 2002), as the only winners on Asian soil.

The “Bleus” arrives at the instance not without having stumbled, with the intruder Tunisia dealing him a defeat that only mutated his monarchical pride; while the albiceleste bit the dust against Saudi Arabia, a fall that seemed like the catastrophe of Las Malvinas.

This France also has absences, mainly from Karin Benzemá and Paul Pogba, but it showed throughout the contest that only Brazil had a larger squad in individual terms.

His team, equally walled in with the superb Aurélien Tchouaméni, Antoine Grizmann, Ousmane Dembélé, the rediscovered and historic scorer Oliver Giroud, Theo Hernández, Jules Koundé, Dayot Upamecano and Raphaël Varane, as well as the great Hugo Lloris, is more than enough to prevail against the best on the planet.

Is it enough for Argentina?

The facade of this Argentina has been very similar to that of Italy ’90, with their debut loss and their enormous role, both as a team and as individuals in the semifinals.

Patagonia had to resurface against a very brave Netherlands, dispatching it on penalties, thanks to the unfathomable leadership of Emiliano Martínez, just like Sergio Goycochea’s heroism in transalpine territory.

What Lionel Messi did against the best central defender in the World Cup, Josko Gvardiol, also brought to mind the unrepeatable Diego Maradona against Brazil in 1990.

But this Argentina, like that of the “god”, will have to show the best Messi of his life, together with the attack of Julián Álvarez (4 goals in 4 games), the tireless Ángel di María, Nicolás Otamendi and Cristian Romero, as vertebral, in addition to Alexis Mc Allister, Enzo Fernández, Rodrigo de Paul before the volleys and Praetorian defense.

The constant siege of Noodle in attack will be key against the unbreakable lock, while the biggest challenge for the Argentine defense will be placating Mbappé, mainly in the penalty area, where he is almost infallible.

The gaucho’s great dilemma will be who can against the lethal striker, probably with Rodrigo de Paul the one indicated, due to his strength and speed, together with al-Cuti-Romero to lock up the native of Bondy in his perimeters of greatest havoc.

This is the France that is not lame when it puts the eye of the bullet. And his counterpart would be the sensational Álvarez, with his fast counter-attacks and accurate shots on goal, which would save La Pulga’s last chance to lift the gold massif.

The second big duel will be between the center-forwards Àlvarez and Giroud, both with four goals, the first with one game less.

Perhaps the only notable Argentine possibility will be to stop Mbappé without causing the collateral damage that Griezmann can do, who moves quickly on all flanks with a lot of gunpowder. Not to mention the Tchouaméni and Dembélé. It will be a crossfire before the
