Argentina v France: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

The summer international friendlies have produced an enticing set of fixtures and an intriguing encounter could be on the cards when France travel to Mendoza to face an Argentina side who have not played since finishing fourth at the Rugby World Cup.

Les Bleus will be taking to the field for the first time since finishing second in the Six Nations and they will be hoping that they could put that disappointment behind for the first of two meetings in their South America series, with an historic first away meeting with Uruguay sandwiched in between them.

Argentina v France stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

France boast the superiority in terms of the head-to-record with 38 victories from their 53 total meetings in all competitions, including their most recent encounter in a 2021 friendly - as Melvyn Jaminet went six for seven in kicks to help Les Bleus to a 29-20 victory.

Los Pumas may not have history on their side, but their home record against France is more than admirable with four wins from six encounters.

The most recent of these came in 2016 with a comfortable 30-19 win and remains the last time that Argentina claimed victory over Les Bleus.

Argentina v France team news

Argentina team news

Head coach Felipe Contepomi could hand a number of milestone caps to his squad during this series, including flanker Pablo Matera, who could move to within one game of reaching 100 matches for Los Pumas.

Full-back Mateo Soler, hooker Bautista Bernasconi, prop Francisco Coria Marchetti, lock Franco Molina and flanker duo Joaquin Moro and Juan Bautista Pedemonte could all receive their first international caps on Saturday.

France team news

There is plenty of inexperience within Fabien Galthie’s squad, with 19 uncapped players named for the South American tour.

These include Munster’s Antoine Frisch, the only member of the squad to ply his trade outside of France, Simeli Daunivucu and Theo Attissogbe - with the latter duo potentially becoming the youngest debutants in the current squad at 19.
