France Squad and Predicted Lineup Against USA in the Round of 16
France is looking perfect and dangerous even in the absence of their superhero striker Karim Benzema. All the players including Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembélé, Olivier Giroud, Adrien Rabiot are looking in great form. Even though France lose to Tunisia, their pot a players were on rest due to which Tunisia completely dominated France in the first half. But after Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembélé got substituted, Tunisia completely lose control of the game. This is the power of Frenchmen. They have shown, they are ready for any situation in upcoming big knockout games.

Poland Squad and Predicted Lineup Against France in the Round of 16
Poland is a decent team and has the capabilities to compete with giants like France. So this will not be an easy match for France. Poland played outstanding against Saudi Arabia and even better against Mexico. But they looked uncomfortable against Argentina and lose by 0-2. Such a loss before a round of 16 may impact their game. Because France looks tougher than Argentina. So this could be a very difficult game for them. If they would like to defeat France, they have to improve their gameplay. One thing I like about Poland is they play a very decent game and fair play. Significantly less number of fouls you will see from Poland.

Poland might play in 4-4-2 formation

Defenders: Bartosz Bereszynski, Jakub Kiwior, Kamil Glik, Matty Cash
Mid-fielders: Przemyslaw Frankowski, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Krystian Bielik, Piotr Zielinski
Forward: Robert Lewandowski, Arkadiusz Milik

France looks much better side than Poland. But as I said before, this world cup is unpredictable. Anything will happen. But if you say the most winning chances from this two, I would go with France. France is a perfect squad and has the capability to defeat any team in this tournament. Same thing I can’t say about Poland. So in this match, the favorite team will be France.
If my opinion, France will beat Poland by 3-1.
