#WorldCup 2018: France vs Argentina: Team news, injuries, possible line-ups

France will take on Argentina in the round of 16 on Saturday afternoon.

The Les Blues finished top of Group C, following a goalless draw against Denmark on Tuesday.

France coach, Didier Deschamps has already proven that he is happy to mix up his squad, leaving it difficult to predict which players will feature today.

Goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris will return in goal, while Samuel Umtiti and Paul Pogba will feature in defence and midfield respectively, but Deschamps has decisions to make regarding the make-up of his attack.

Forward, Kylian Mbappe is expected to come in for Ousmane Dembele, but Olivier Giroud is not a certain starter and Antoine Griezmann could play down the middle.

Nabil Fekir has impressed from the bench and may start, while Djibril Sidibe could get the nod over Benjamin Pavard at the right-back.

Deschamps has now new injuries worries in his squad ahead of this clash.

Meanwhile, Argentina head into the match after beating Nigeria 2-1 on Tuesday in Group D to finished second place behind Croatia.

Argentina coach, Jorge Sampaoli has no new injuries worries in his squad ahead of the clash.

Striker, Sergio Aguero will hope to get another chance in the starting lineup after Gonzalo Higuain was ineffective against Nigeria earlier this week.

Franco Armani will almost certainly retain his place between the sticks after making his debut in midweek, but Angel Di Maria’s spot in the team is at risk.

The La Albiceleste have met France twelve times, with Argentina recording six victories and French side prevailing on just the two occasions.

France potential starting XI: Lloris; Sidibe, Varane, Umtiti, Hernandez; Kante, Matuidi; Mbappe, Pogba, Fekir; Griezmann

Argentina potential starting XI: Armani; Mercado, Otamendi, Rojo, Tagliafico; Mascherano, Banega, Perez; Meza, Aguero, Messi

Kick-off is 3pm Nigerian time.
