Carlos Mello: Even with some absences, France is still the favorite to advance to the next phase of the World Cup. The French team has more players who can define a match, but Poland will make things difficult for the French. So far, there isn’t a selection left in the tournament. Anything can happen, but Les Blues are the favourites.
guess: France 2 v 1 Poland
Ricardo Oliveira: It’s a game that favors France slightly due to the quality that the French have shown so far, in addition to the lack of football from the Poles in many moments. Even if a round of 16 game can even things out and it’s a new World Cup, I see France in the lead and should confirm this favoritism.
Guess: France 3 x 1 Poland
