Argentina-France: the state of the lawn of the final challenges


Synthetic plates have been laid in front of a goal to replace tired pieces of pitch after nine games already played at Lus

Light therapy sessions after the semi-final between Argentina and Croatia last Tuesday failed to protect the entire pitch at Lusail Stadium.

The playing surface of the Argentina-France final, which kick-off is scheduled for 4 p.m. this Sunday, is, according to the testimony of a special correspondent from beIn Sports, "well damaged".

It is true that this is the tenth meeting in 26 days in this stadium.

🇦🇷🇫🇷 The Lusail Stadium lawn was so damaged that synthetic was added in the 6 meter area!

It is in particular in the area in front of a goal that the observation is the most spectacular since a totally synthetic turf square had to be laid.

This is enough to give goalkeepers Hugo Lloris and Emiliano Martinez a few cold sweats.

We know that synthetic pitches usually require special studs and lead to different rebounds compared to a conventional pitch.
