Argentina vs France World Cup 2022 Final: Other predictions

Argentina in general and Messi in particular entered the 2022 World Cup final with the highest determination. Understandably, this is an opportunity to help Argentina quench its thirst for the World Cup title since 1986 until now.

With Messi alone, if there is a World Cup title, the star born in 1987 will own all the noble titles that a football player dreams of.

However, before thinking about glory, Messi and his teammates still have 90 minutes of final survival before France. According to the assessment, France is a team that is slightly better as it has a strong squad in every position.

Notably, coach Deschamps' teachers and students still maintain a stable performance and they are confident of successfully defending the World Cup gold trophy. Since the qualifying round, Les Bleus has only lost 1 match against Tunisia (the match is no longer meaningful in the group stage when France has won tickets to the next round), the rest are 5 convincing wins.

In particular, France partly showed the physique of the champion when it overcame the British heavyweight candidate in the quarterfinals and tackled the dark horse Morocco in the semi-finals. In WC2022 journey, France performed a reasonable and cohesive game that did not depend on any star in the squad.

Standard UK’s prediction: While Messi would appear to be destined for the ultimate glory, this French team will take some beating. Seemingly incapable of panicking and boasting obvious firepower, they could feasibly whether the Argentine storm on their way to a third World Cup win.

France to win 2-1.

FIFA prediction shows Argentina win rate is 35%。

France has 34% win rate.

Draw: 31%

Supercomputer prediction:

According to a supercomputer, Messi's Argentina are favourites to win the World Cup in Qatar. ESPN citing FiveThirtyEight's SPI disclosed that La Albiceleste have been given a 37% chance of being crowned world champions.

According to BonusCodeBets, the Albiceleste and the reigning world champions will both make it through and meet in the final at the Lusail Stadium on Sunday.

And France have been tipped to become the third country to win back-to-back World Cup titles after Italy and Brazil.

The supercomputer prediction has been forecast using a range of informative outright odds markets to formulate how the final fixtures will play out.

According to the findings, Paris Saint-Germain team-mates Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe will lock horns for the grand prize in Qatar.

But Messi's late bid for World Cup glory as Argentina captain will be in vain as Mbappe has been tipped to lead his country to the top of the mountain once more.
