Lionel Messi and Argentina won’t be happy to see Drake backing them to beat France in the World Cup final.
The superstar rapper has been making headlines in recent months due to an apparent curse associated with him that has hampered many top sports teams and stars.
He has built an undesirable reputation for being bad luck to those he supports.
And ahead of the World Cup final in Qatar on Sunday, he bet $1 million on them to win.
While in a video posted on social networks with a friend, he declares: “I will take Argentina, he will take France. It will be an atmosphere.
The South Americans are hoping not to suffer the same fate as one of their former stars, Sergio Aguero.
The former Manchester City star posed for a photo with the Canadian entertainer before losing to Tottenham in the 2019 Champions League quarter-final, while Anthony Joshua also suffered a shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr after taking a picture with the rapper.
Drake also bet that Charles Leclerc would win the Spanish Grand Prix this year, only for the Ferrari driver to suffer engine failure during the race.

More recently, Drake was spotted wearing an Arsenal shirt in a video, leading talkSPORT presenter Laura Woods to jokingly send him a hilarious warning with his beloved Gunners trying to win the Premier League title.
When asked if she had a message for Drake, Woodsy replied, “Drake, you’re a brilliant artist and a brilliant performer. I saw him at the O2, actually he was wonderful, but take it off this jersey and put on a Spurs jersey!
“Take your interest elsewhere, Drake!” We don’t need your support, we don’t need your curse!
“Go write some more music and go sing a little with your friends, okay?
“Stay away from the Premier League unless you want to start supporting teams like Spurs or Man City.
“Is that clear enough? In so many words, stay away from this football club!
But all of Drake’s previous victims will seem like small fries if he prevents Messi from enjoying a fairytale ending to his international career.
Argentina will take on defending champions France on Sunday, live on talkSPORT.
