South American giants Argentina get their World Cup campaign underway today, taking on Iceland at the Spartak Stadium. Jorge Sampaoli’s men make the trip to Moscow as heavy favourites to qualify from Group D and they’re expected to roll out comfortable winners on match day one. They had a rocky ride during qualification for Russia but with a star studded squad to pick from, they will be one of the sides to beat this summer. Their opponents on the other hand have done something incredibly special just by making it to the World Cup finals. Iceland were one of the stories of the 2016 European Championships and their fantastic success story has another chapter, by making their first ever appearance at the World Cup.
Argentina vs Iceland @ 14:00 GMT
Prediction: Argentina to win against Iceland at odds 1.40
Another one, of that World Cup 2018 Group Stage matches, Argentina faces Iceland.
Might be a close one, you are right, if you are thinking that but there are several points, why I think, that Argentina will get it done.
First of all, Argentina is in a very hard Group, with Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia, so getting the 3 points, in the first game, is extremely important for them if you consider the qualifications which was a disaster movie for the most part. But they are here now.
More than enough quality is available for sure, I don’t need to give you names right?
Messi have a dream and that is getting a big title with his national team, its almost his last chance to do it.
Opponent, Iceland,the team, which scared whole Europe in 2016 in France, right now the big question is can they do it again? My answer is, hmmm maybe but more so nahh …. 🙂
They can perform incredible strong as a team and with Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton) they have a star plus Johann Berg Gudmundsson (Burnley) and Alfred Finnbogason (FC Augsburg) aren’t that bad either.
But there is another fact, at least according to the latest matches they aren’t in their best shape: Only 1 win in 4 matches this year with 3 defeats. Against Ghana, they were 2 goals up already at the end the game ended 2:2.
This should be an easy win for Argentina. 1.39 – 1.40 is a must try here, avg 1.36 maybe it will fall slightly down.
Prediction: Argentina to win against Iceland in 1st half at odds 1.94
The Argentinians will win this game hands down they are very determined in this world cup games and may want to reach a very good stage in this competition.
This is their first game and so therefore the will win this game and that winning is to be recorded from the first half of this particular game. Both teams scoring in this particular game is not too much possible for me because the Argentine will totally dominate this game and they will avoid conceding.
This game will produce tow three or even four goals and the winning team will win by two goals margin at least.
