Croatia and France will meet in Final of this magnificent 2018 Word Cup in Russia. The Game will be held at Luzhniki, Moscow and will be refereed by Nestor Pitana - FIFA's favorite son this championship. This is a 10 unit play.

Few fast facts: forget what you saw till now cause the Finals are different from what goes on beforehand in the Championships. The Last 3 finals all ended in draws and were decided by the penalties once (2006 in Berlin with Italy edging France 5-3 in a penalty shootout after 1-1 (1-1) in 90 minutes and no goals in Extra Time), and in Extra Time twice (2010 Spain beat Holland 1-0 on Iniesta's goal in Extra Time (116th minute) and in 2014 Germany edged Argentina 1-0 on Mario Gotze's goal in Extra Time (113th minute).

This game won't be much different than those. Forget France's scoring abilities and forget Mbappe. You won't see him moving as much as he did in his previous games. Pogba and Modric will be fighting in trenches while none of the teams will be attacking from a middle but only from the wings. That is the nature of those two.

The first 90 minutes will end in a draw or a surprise Croatia win as it is again 20 years since the fresh world cup winn er has been introduced (1958 Brazil wins for its first cup, 1978 Argentina wins it's first cup, 1998 France wins it's first cup) and the French owe to the Croats from that improbable Thuram comeback 20 years ago. Therefore:

Croatia +0.5  -122  10 units
