  • Francia pendiente de Messi Dinamarca se las verá con Croacia en octavos

Sampaoli, though, is focusing on ensuring Argentina are set up so "shining light" Messi can make the difference in Kazan. "You can do everything OK and fail, like Argentina in Brazil". They have not conceded a goal in open play in the group phase for the first time since 1998, when they went on to win the trophy on home soil. "'Plan' is a big word, but of course we will try to limit his influence".

France and Argentina will officially kick things off in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Round of 16.

The Barcelona legend has only managed one goal so far in Russian Federation, which came in the decisive 2-1 Group D win over Nigeria in St. Petersburg and set up the French encounter. Argentina had a roller-coaster ride in the group stages as unusual tactics, ineffectual play, an unpopular manager and terrible chemistry saw them only pick up one point from their first two games.

"Lionel Messi is Lionel Messi", said the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship-winning former captain.

Just as France know the threat of Messi, Argentina coach Sampaoli is fully aware of the dangers of an on-form France - led by Paris St Germain teenager Kylian Mbappe.

He said: "There is so much expectation around Messi, which I think is normal, but still I think the Argentina team has a lot to show".

Sampaoli was unstinting in his praise of Messi, describing him as "the best player in the world" and a "genius", but preferred to focus more on the display he expected from his whole team on Saturday. On both cases, Argentina reached the Finals. The teams will score at least one goal apiece, so bettors should take the over. The last time these two sides met was in 2009 in an global friendly which Messi and co had won 2-0.

When and what time is the round of 16 match between Argentina and France?

Where and how to catch the live stream of France vs Argentina match? France have failed to click as their star-studded attack still struggles to gel as they have only scored three goals in three games.

"We need to control the match, that's our starting-point, we need to control the game throughout". La Albiceleste has been under heavy scrutiny during the current World Cup campaign - and for good measure, considering how poor the team has been.
