While neither team was at their best during the group stages of Russia 2018, France and Argentina have the capacity to lift their game on Saturday night to give us the best tie of the Round of 16.
With Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero facing Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud on the other side of the pitch, there should be plenty of attacking intent on show and a thrilling 90 minutes, or more, in prospect.
For those looking to take a bet on the game, there are a number or bookmaker promotions up for grabs but we think this new customer deal from 888Sport* is up there with the best. Here, you can make your choice between France and Argentina and get an excellent price boost if you call correctly. Here’s what 888 have put on the table.
*New customers only. €10 minimum deposit required. Qualifying bet must be placed at the normal odds Min bet €5, max bet €5. Extra winnings paid in FREE BETS and added within 72 hrs of qualifying bet settlement. Free bet stakes not included in bet returns. Free bets expire 7 days after credit.

8/1 France or 11/1 Argentina
Those are the numbers involved under this promo – 8/1 for a France victory or 11/1 if the Argentinians come through. Remember, those are the prices for either team to progress to the next round and it doesn’t matter if they do it in 90 minutes or if they need extra time and penalties to go through.
With those figures in mind, if you want to proceed with this 888Sport offer, here’s what needs to happen.
This is an exclusive offer for new customers to 888 and if you qualify on that basis, the first step is to get an account sorted. The registration form can be found here and you’ll see that it’s a quick and easy process that requires the most basic of information.
This should be fully complete in around five minutes and from that point you should land at the cashier’s page. There are some important points to remember here so firstly, please add at least £10.00 which is the minimum deposit set by this offer.
We suggest using a debit or credit card to do this as most eWallets are not acceptable in terms of this promotion and finally, please ensure that you input the Promo Code 888ODDS when prompted to do so.
It’s a quick and easy procedure to get to this point and once complete, you now need to make your choice between the two teams.
Making The Bet
Funds are expected to clear straight away and you can then stake the fixed amount of £5.00 on the team of your choice. Back either France or Argentina when the teams meet in the Round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup on June 30 and then simply wait for the result.
If, at the end of that game, your bet is a winner, 888Sport will pay your returns in two steps with an initial profit paid out on their standard market price in the equivalent To Qualify market. Expect to see that in your account shortly after the final whistle while the balance, up to the price boost in question, comes back to you as free bet tokens within 72 hours.
Remember to look out for those free bet tokens as they must be used within 7 days and while that completes a full summary of the main terms of this deal, you can check all rules in full at the 888 offers page if you prefer.
France had the better record in the group stages so they are obvious favourites and may be your preferred pick for this game. Argentina started poorly but as they often do, the side came through and did just enough to make it to the knockouts.
It could be a tight call but if you have made up your mind and you qualify for this promo as a new 888 customer, the price boosts involved are generous ones and can lead to excellent profits in return for a correct prediction.
