This Sunday, December 18, the teams of Argentina and France will face each other for the Qatar 2022 World Cup final. The match will begin at 10:00 am (Peruvian time) and will be played at the Lusail Stadium.
La Albiceleste is one step away from achieving a historic victory after 36 years of World Cup droughts. The Argentines will play their sixth final and dream of being world champions at the hands of Lionel Messi, after they did it in Mexico in 1986 with Diego Armando Maradona, the greatest figure.
On the other hand, the European squad seeks to be the third two-time champion in history, after Italy (1934, 1938) and Brazil (1958, 1962), in addition to being the fourth team with the most titles, since it would reach three to be located after Germany and Italy, with four, and Brazil with five.
However, the bookmakers play their game separately and for this match there is no marked favoritism for either of the two teams, since the odds remain similar.
Betsson offers the odds of 2.85 if Argentina wins the match, 3.10 if it ends in a tie and 2.78 in favor of France.
In addition, that is, if a fan bets S/ 100 on this result and is correct, they would be earning S/ 1,200.
Conversely, if the French team wins 1-0, the amount is 7.40, and if they win by two goals, the figure rises to 12.00.
Lionel Messi’s goal pays the fee of 2.73, but if he scores two goals, the amount goes up to 9.80. In addition to this, if the forward achieves the feat of scoring a hat-trick in the match, the fee would be 43.00.
Likewise, the goals of Julián Álvarez and Lautaro Martínez have the figure of 3.90 and 3.75, respectively.
On the other hand, Kylian Mbappe’s goal pays the amount of 2.84, but if he scores two or more goals, the fee goes up to 11.00.
In addition, the goals from Olivier Giroud and Antoine Griezmann pay the figure of 3.35 and 5.20, respectively.
In total, Argentina and France have faced each other 12 times. The record marks six wins for Argentina, three draws and three wins for France.
However, as far as World Cups are concerned, there have only been three clashes, where the Argentines won two of them and the French the rest.
The first occurred in Uruguay 1930, where the albiceleste won 1-0. In Argentina 1978 both teams met again in the group stage and again the victory went to Argentina with a 2-1.
Lastly, the most recent match in world cups was in the round of 16 of Russia 2018, with a French victory 4-3.
