Having looked more and more impressive as the World Cup has progressed, Al Hain-Cole is backing Les Bleus to be crowned champions against Dalic's men

France and Croatia will compete for international football’s greatest honour when they meet at the Luzhniki Stadium in Sunday’s World Cup final.

Les Bleus are aiming to bring him the trophy they previously won in 1998, having lost the 2006 final on penalties to Italy.

Latest Odds

Having run out 2-1 winners over this opposition in the 1998 semi-finals, they are dabblebet’s 10/11 (1.91) favourites to be crowned champions by coming out on top once again.

Zlatko Dalic’s men have exceeded all expectations to reach their first ever World Cup final, and are available at 7/2 (4.50) to pull off yet another shock and come out on top in Moscow.

The last two encounters between this pair have both resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them taking this game into extra-time after another deadlocked 90 minutes.

Team News

Blaise Matuidi should be fit to start despite going off injured against Belgium, with Didier Deschamps likely to pick the same XI as started that 1-0 win.

Ivan Strinic is also likely to recover after limping off against England, while Mario Mandzukic should also be ready despite going off with cramp in extra-time.

Formidable France

In a World Cup not short of upsets, France have been the only pre-tournament favourite to live up to expectations.

As well as possessing a supremely talented squad, Deschamps’ men have generally looked organised and tactically disciplined enough to win in any circumstance.

Indeed, France prevailed in a frantic 4-3 victory over Argentina and a solid 1-0 over Belgium courtesy of a set piece, as well as comfortably seeing off Uruguay.

Predictions

Having come through all three of their knockout stage matches within 90 minutes, those 10/11 (1.91) odds offer solid value on France proving too strong for a Croatian side that has endured three 120-minute matches within the space of 10 days.
