    A champion will be crowned at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow as Matuidi's France faces Mandzukic and Pjaca's Croatia

    The road to the FIFA World Cup Final has reached the end as France and Croatia will meet at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow for the right to be crowned World Cup Champion.

    It's a Bianconeri derby as Blaise Matuidi's France will face Mario Mandzukic and Marko Pjaca's croatia at 17.00 CEST in the Russian Capital. 

    THE ROAD TO THE FINAL: FRANCE

    It's been a relatively straight-forward route to the final for Les Bleus who breezed through the group stage defeating Australia and Peru before drawing Denmark to secure top spot in the group.

    In the round of 16, France defeated Argentina in a wild 4-3 result while the quarter-finals and semi-finals saw Didier Deschamps' side shut-out Uruguay and Belgium.

    It's be a successful World Cup for Juve's Blaise Matuidi as well starting three out of the six matches, making four appearances in all with 264 minutes played. 

    THE ROAD TO THE FINAL: CROATIA

    What a tournament it's been for Zlatko Dalić's side playing in the first World Cup Final in the country's history! 

    The Croatian's had no trouble in the group stage winning all three matches over Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland, though things in the knock-out round have been much trickier.

    In all three of their knock-out round matches, Croatia have been level with their opponents after 90 minutes defeating Denmark and Russia on penalty kicks while dispatching with England courtesy of a 109th minute goal from Mario Mandzukic.

    It's been an excellent tournament for the Juve striker playing five out of six matches while tying with Luka Modrid and Ivan Perisic for the team lead with two goals. The other Bianconero, Marko Pjaca, has made two appearances logging 74 minutes played.

    Good luck to both sides and all our Bianconeri!
