Betting Tip: @ France to win @ 10/11 with bet365

France weren’t much to write home about during the World Cup group stage, seemingly doing the bare minimum when collecting seven points during their Group C encounters.

Didier Deschamps hasn’t been the flavour du jour for many France supporters, although the knockout stages have seen the real team come to the fore, winning 4-3 against Argentina before 2-0 and 1-0 victories against Uruguay and Belgium respectively.

Kylian Mbappe has emerged as a superstar, N’Golo Kante has made his country as defensively stout as he managed to achieve with Leicester and Chelsea, while Rafael Varane and Samuel Umtiti are proof that not all defensive heroes wear capes.

The French have a great system and Croatia certainly can’t afford to experience the same slow start that saw England take the initiative on Wednesday, with the Three Lions failing to get that second crucial goal and the Blazers eventually gaining a foothold.

Croatia aren’t mugs and here is an opportunity to win a first ever World Cup for a relatively new nation, with the team having come from a goal down against Denmark, Russia and England to take the game into extra-time and get over the line.

Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic are seasoned campaigners who will hope to steer this proud nation to victory although France just seem like a very tough nut to crack.
