France v Croatia Preview, World Cup Final, Sunday 15th July 2018, Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, Kick off: 16:00
France and Croatia contest the 2018 FIFA World Cup final at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday afternoon. This will be France’s first World Cup final since losing to Italy in 2006, while Croatia have never been in the last two.
France lifted the trophy back in 1998, beating Croatia in the semi-final in the process. That was the first and only time these two nations have met at a World Cup. On paper, France have the better players, and Didier Deschamps’ men head to Moscow as favourites. However, Croatia have some very dangerous players, who are more than capable of causing the French problems on the day. We should be in for a cracking final in the Russian capital this weekend.

Relevant Stats, Injuries and Suspensions
France’s Olivier Giroud could miss out after picking up a knock in the win over Belgium. Meanwhile, Ivan Perisic, who had such a vital impact against England on Wednesday, is a doubt with a thigh strain. France have several dangerous attackers, with Kylian Mbappe in fine form. However, Croatia’s midfield is as good as anyone’s, as Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic look to dominate the middle of the park in the final.
France v Croatia Tips
France have slowly but surely grown into this tournament without really setting the world alight. After three sluggish group games, Les Bleus have displayed their qualities in the knockout rounds, beating the likes of Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium. The French have proven why they were one of the tournament favourites ahead of this World Cup
This is uncharted territory for the Croatians, but they have shown every attribute needed to get to this showpiece final in Moscow. With both teams pretty evenly matched, we’re expecting another very tight World Cup final. Dalic’s troops have been a pleasure to watch at times in Russia, and we fancy them to go all the way. Although we’re siding with a narrow Croatian victory, France have too much quality to fire a blank on Sunday. Because of that, have a punt on Croatia to win and both teams to score, which is available at the generous price of 11/1 with Ladbrokes.
