Head to head: Pumas stun France in World Cup opener
September 7, 2007
France and Argentina have met a total of 39 times since their first clash on 28th August 1949 when Les Bleus beat the Pumas 5-0.
France hold the historical advantage having won 30 of their previous meetins while Argentina have won seven times with two draws.
Since France's comprehensive 47-26 victory against Argentina at Lansdowne Road during RWC'99, it is the Pumas who have had the better of their meetings.
A hat-trick of victories on home soil in 2002/03 were followed by an historic triumph at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille in 2004.
More recently, France edged out their rivals 27-26 in a dress rehearsal for this clash last November at the Stade de France.
