The two teams meet again in the reissue of the 2018 World Cup final and we expect to have the same show on the field, even if the fans are not yet allowed in the stadiums.A real derby between two national teams that play spectacular football will take place on Tuesday evening at 9.45 pm, in Saint Denis, on the Stade de France. This match will be refereed from the center by one of the best Romanian referees, Ovidiu Hategan.
The best national team in the world will try in this match to beat the opponent from the 2016 World Cup final again, taking advantage of the fact that it seems weaker than 4 years ago.

Football Prediction of the Day France vs Croatia
The derby between two teams that won their groups for the preliminaries of the European Championship in 2021, is announced to be a very spectacular one, having as favorite the host team tonight.
In the previous 10 matches played by Deschamps’ students, they were defeated only by Turkey, instead the Croatians have 3 defeats, against Hungary, Tunisia and Portugal.
From the matches they played in the first round of the Uefa Nations League, we notice that France is going through a very good period and has big plans for the European Championship, and Croatia is declining in form, which makes me strongly believe that the hosts will manage a fairly easy victory.
