Jorge Sampaoli’s men looked in danger of going out in the group stages after collecting just one point from their first two games but scraped through thanks to Rojo’s 86th minute volley in their final match.
Things don’t get any easier for Lionel Messi and Co. now though, and dabblebet’s dabble of the day is a 14/1 (15.0) shot that the match features a France win, over 2.5 goals, over 9.5 corners and Antoine Griezmann to score.
These odds are hardly surprising since the Europeans won their first two group games and drew their final one against Denmark with both sides knowing a point each was enough for them both to qualify.
Griezmann scored his country’s first goal at this tournament – a penalty against Australia – and has been the focal point of France’s attacks, as evidenced by the fact he is responsible for nine of their 35 shots at the tournament.
Although France only have three goals at the tournament so far, their first game saw over 2.5 strikes and two of Argentina’s group games also did, which would have been three had Messi not missed a penalty against Iceland.
France may only have 12 and all-but two of those came in their first two matches, meaning these sides should see plenty of corner kicks between them.
Both countries have similar attacking approaches that lead to open games and makes this multi-market selection a tempting 14/1 (15.0) longshot ahead of the game in Kazan.
