The Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow will host the finale to the 2018 World Cup. On Sunday in the 2018 World Cup final, it will be France vs. Croatia for the biggest prize in the game.
Croatia came from behind to beat England in extra time and reach their first-ever World Cup final. But Croatia have never beaten France, drawing two and losing three of their five previous fixtures, including the 1998 World Cup semi-finals.
Who wins France-Croatia? Let’s break the matchup down!
Both teams have some talented players, but France team has young stars like Kylian Mbappe, who is the symbol of a new era for French football thanks in large part to his superb UEFA Champions League performances for Monaco, and Antoine Griezmann, nominated as one of three finalists for The Best FIFA Men’s Player Award.
Moreover, the Croatian defense isn’t a bad pair by any means, but France’s is so much quicker and better. That doesn’t mean this will be one-sided, but the clear edge goes to Les Bleus.
In attack Griezmann is great, Olivier Giroud is solid, Kylian Mbappe is a superstar, but Croatia is complete in the final third as well. The Croatians don’t have a player in attack better than Griezmann or Mbappe — they really don’t have anyone close — but they are so dangerous with Mario Mandzukic’s poacher ability and Ivan Perisic on the wing.
The coach of France team, Didier Deschamps, is more experienced and the bigger name, and he’s gotten his team to finally play well, but Zlatko Dalic has worked wonders at Croatia.
To sum up, France is just too talented, and they are on a roll.
