Sampaoli Upbeat About Argentina’s Chances Against France, Explains Aguero Substitution Vs Nigeria

Messi offered Argentina fans a tantalising moment of brilliance with his goal as Jorge Sampaoli's men beat Nigeria 2-1 to avoid a group-stage exit.

Despite this, Argentina continue to be a unsafe team and beating them will be hard for France.

Lionel Messi is not as effective with Argentina, as he does for Barcelona, says Samuel Umtiti.

"We've studied the three Argentina group matches which gives us indications and hints, but a player like Messi could step up his own level and decide the fate of the match", said Lloris.

If we talk about expectations, we might as well not mention Argentina at all.

"But it's not how you characterised it, we had several options in attack and I was just communicating to him that we'd be using one of the strategies that we'd rehearsed". France is a young team, which is not an excuse - it is the reality.

They will bank on Argentina's defensive struggles after the South Americans conceded five goals in three matches, notably losing 3-0 to Croatia.

Supreme Court Upholds Travel Ban 3.0
Hundreds of people gathered in New York City's Foley Square on Tuesday evening to decry the Supreme Court decision. Soon after the court's ruling, Trump took to his Twitter and tweeted, "SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS TRUMP TRAVEL BAN".

Instagram hits 1bn users, takes on YouTube with IGTV
Instagram is taking on TV and YouTube with a new property called IGTV, where videos can run up to an hour long . The Facebook -owned photo-sharing app has previously dealt in still images and videos of up to 60 seconds.

Sampaoli has made a fair few big changes after their disappointing performances but this would be very sudden and surprising.

Another shake-up looms for the Argentina match, with Deschamps unlikely to have teenage juggernaut Kylian Mbappe starting on the bench again or to rest Paul Pogba. The former Benfica and Valencia midfielder is dealing with physical problems, and will be a game-time decision. France enters this marquee matchup at +135 on the money line, meaning you'd need to bet $100 on a French victory to win $135.

We will have two Manchester United players going head to head in this one.

This will be their 12th meeting across all competitions.

Since then, France are unbeaten in eight World Cup fixtures against CONMEBOL opposition (W4 D4). Oddsmakers have pegged Group C victor France as the slight betting favorite over Group D runner-up Argentina. To make a comparison, two of Argentina's have seen over that same amount.

Where and how to catch the live stream of France vs Argentina match? On both occasions, they reached the final, losing it in 1930 and winning in 1978. "Hopefully we can all continue to improve". As such, I believe Les Bleus will take home the win and a spot in the quarterfinals.
