France vs Croatia
Live on BBC & ITV
France take on Croatia in the 2018 World Cup Final.
Both teams deserve their place in the Final, and both have impressed en route.
Les Bleus were deserved winners against Belgium on Tuesday, despite many pundits suggesting otherwise, but they were always in control of the game (xG: FRA 1.76 - 0.54 BEL).
Croatia knocked out England in their Semi Final, and they were the far superior team based on chances created (xG: CRO 2.14 - 0.73 ENG).
The Infogol model suggests that France have a 68% chance of lifting the trophy on Sunday, with their young superstar to guide them to glory.
Kylian Mbappé has had a superb World Cup, and was in great form again against Belgium, tormenting them with his pace and trickery.
Mbappé is France's biggest goal threat, and is averaging 0.34 non-penalty xG per 90 at this tournament.
He will fancy his chances of causing Croatia's backline a lot of problems in this game, and looks a good bet to open the scoring.
