France v Croatia Betting Tips
- Both Teams to Score – 10/7, 888Sport
- Croatia to Lift the Trophy – 7/4, Betfair
France v Croatia Preview – Can France Make up for Mistakes?
France head to Moscow this weekend knowing that they came up short two years ago. They lost the Euro 2016 final in Paris to Portugal, when they came through the tough side of the draw and faced a side who were considered lucky to be there. The Portuguese flipped the script that day, and now Croatia are out to do the same on the biggest stage of all.
It’s easy to see why Croatia will fancy their chances here, with France throwing their own final in extra time two years ago. Extra time here would suit the Croatians, who have been through it in their last three matches, succeeding in all of them. They also know they’re facing a French side who have the same style and approach as Euro 2016, so they’re certainly vulnerable.
Relevant Stats, Injuries and Suspensions
These two are close to full fitness ahead of Sunday’s clash. There’s still many who consider Croatia to be tiring after their long run here, but they’re showing no sign of that. They’ve got no injury concerns, and no suspensions. However, the French are likely to miss Djibril Sidibe yet again, while Blaise Matuidi is another injury concern for the World Cup favourites.
France v Croatia – Could Croatia Shock the World?
France are seen as 10/11 favourites with William Hill, while Croatia sit at 15/4 with Bet365. The draw seems tempting at 21/10 with Ladbrokes, following the Croatians’ form so far. However, we think the value lies with both teams to score at 10/7 with 888Sport. It’s landed in Croatia’s last four games at this tournament, and they should have enough going forward to worry their defence. The French have individual moments of magic in games, and that’s likely to catch out a Croatian defence which has had weak points. We think BTTS is the way to go, as this could end the recent streak of low scoring finals.
Croatia can be found at 7/4 with Betfair to lift the trophy, and we think this game is going their way. By some means, we expect them to take advantage of France’s tactical and mental limitations and win this game. Given their price, the more experienced side seem like fantastic value to win this World Cup final.
