Soccer Betting Preview of Possible World Cup Finals Matchups to Dream About

FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Finals

  • When: Sunday, Dec. 18 at 10:00 am ET
  • Where: Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail, Qatar
  • TV/Streaming: FOX

Dream Matchup #1: Argentina vs France

What makes this matchup so fantastic is a face-off between one of the greatest, if not the greatest, soccer player of all time in Lionel Messi versus the current best player on the pitch in France’s Kylian Mbappe.

Mbappe has Messi-like skills. So King Lionel would have to step it up. Also, both teams are deep in attack and although Argentina has a better backline, France has the edge in goal with Hugo Lloris. 

Argentina versus France would be epic. What a great way to end the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

Dream Matchup #2: Croatia vs Morocco

Soccer fans that love high-scoring games wouldn’t like this matchup. But soccer purists would the two best defensive teams at the 2022 WC throwing down in what would be a strategy-based matchup.

Whichever coach and manager for the participants, Morocco’s Walid Regragui and Croatia’s Zlatko Dalic, came up with the most effective strategy would come out ahead. Not only that, but Croatia versus Morocco would lead to a ninth nation finally winning a World Cup.  

Dream Matchup #3: Croatia vs France

Croatia entered the 2018 final versus the French after a brutally long match against the English. There’s no doubt that a one-hundred percent fresh Croatian side may have given France a tough game.

Also, France was much stronger in the back and in midfield in 2018 than they are in 2022. So Croatia versus France this year would be a great matchup.

The key for Croatia would be to break down France’s defense on the counter. England did throughout the quarterfinals game and if not for a Harry Kane botched penalty kick, the English would have tied the match versus the French.

Luka Modric is a technician. So we should expect the Croatians to provide an excellent performance on both ends of the pitch.

Dream Matchup #4: Argentina vs Morocco 

Only Argentina would bring the star power, but the Albiceleste versus the Moroccans would still be a great soccer match. The reason to watch is simple.

Can Lionel Messi, one of the greatest offensive wizards in soccer, poke holes in one of the top defenses the World Cup has ever seen? 

Put another way, can Messi set up his teammates and get the first goal at this year’s WC versus Morocco’s defense? 

Can Morocco pull off a fourth straight upset win, this time for one of the great soccer nations in history with the sport’s GOAT, and become the ninth nation to win a World Cup trophy? History would be on the line for sure if Morocco and Argentina were to meet for the title.
