Argentina vs Iceland Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Argentina’s preparation for the World Cup has been less than ideal with the team playing just one game – against minnows Haiti – in the build-up to the tournament. Iceland, meanwhile, may be without a win in four games but they have shown plenty of resolve to score goals. Games involving Iceland have witnessed a large number of goals and this may once again be the order of the day when they take on Argentina, who possess one of the most potent attacking line-ups at the World Cup. I see strong value in choosing over 2.5 goals in the game.

Iceland have been unable to score only twice in the last 12 months of football. The Icelandic team has been able to find the back of the net one way or the other. Argentina had to recover from a disastrous start to the World Cup qualification campaign in order to reach the finals, but clean sheets do not remain a strong point of the team. I would back both teams to score.

Total goals over 2.5 – 21/20

Both teams to score – 6/4
