After collecting on 21/10 for over 1.5 first-half goals in the third-place play-off, we’ve picked out a final World Cup bet of the day from bwin’s price boosts.
Punters can take advantage of special offers involving all kinds of betting markets on Argentina vs France and here is our top pick for Sunday’s decider.
Messi & Mbappe each to have 2+ shots on target @ 9/2
These two players have dominated the Golden Boot and Golden Ball betting throughout the tournament, bagging five goals apiece so far.
Lionel Messi has failed to get on the scoresheet in only one of Argentina’s six fixtures.
The 35-year-old will become the record appearance maker in World Cup history when he plays his 26th and final match on this stage.
Having broken onto the scene as a teenager in 2006 and gone on to reach the final in 2014, he has claimed an unprecedented seven Ballon d’Or awards.
Now comes the chance to crown his glittering career by captaining Argentina to their first World Cup triumph since the late Diego Maradona inspired them to victory in 1986 and Messi has looked particularly driven.
Kylian Mbappe was kept relatively quiet by England in the quarter-finals and Morocco in the semis but had earlier threatened to take this tournament by storm.
After opening his account versus Australia, he netted doubles against Denmark and Poland.
The 23-year-old forward was named young player of the tournament at Russia 2018, where he scored France’s closing goal in a superb 4-2 final triumph against Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium.
Now he will do battle with PSG teammate Messi as Les Bleus seek to become the first back-to-back World Cup winners for 60 years.
All eyes will be on this duo and we’re backing them to justify their star billing in a bet which has been massively enhanced from 7/4.
Other World Cup final price boosts
Messi has broken the deadlock in four of Argentina’s matches already and is 9/2 from 7/2 to strike first once more at Lusail Iconic Stadium.
Mbappe opened the scoring when France beat the Danes during the group stage and has been nudged up from 4/1 to 5/1 to repeat that feat here.
In what promises to be an entertaining encounter, it is 4/1 for a score draw and the same price for each team to net and over 3.5 goals to go in.
France fans can get 9/2 instead of 19/5 for Les Bleus to prevail in normal time and the match to produce over 2.5 goals.
Four ties have gone to penalties since the knockout stage began and the final price boost is 9/2 from 7/2 for another shoot-out here.
