Germany Argentina is a mouth-watering football match that is fit for a world cup final let alone a quarter final. Germany has a young expansive team against Argentina's multi-talented mix of seasoned world beaters.
England were well and truly taken apart in Round two against this exciting German side with the talented Ozil at the centre of most things good, Thomas Mueller also impressed during that match.
At the other end the Argie's will be confident of unleashing Lionel Messi on a shaky back four as well as the other attackers such as Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Diego Milito. The top scorer is of course Higuain and i expect him to start this match.
So where will this match be won and lost?
Of the two nations it appears Argentina have the better organised system and more power in attack. Much like Brazil they play two holding midfield players and three advanced midfielders in front supporting the main striker, allowing the likes of Messi to roam in any position which spells danger for the Germans as Lionel Messi is due a World Cup goal.
Germany will hope there height from set pieces will count as only Demichelas can perform well in the air against such tall players. Germany play with three attackers in Podolski, Klose and Ozil however in this match i expect them to form a 4-5-1 for most of the match and counter attack as they did against England.
I expect errors in the German back-line which Argentina will almost certainly punish should it happen.
Lionel Messi - Needs no introduction, with his roaming role like his Argentina legend Manager Diego Maradona once had he terrorises defences. Expect him to score or set one of the goals up in this match. เว็บคาสิโนออนไลน์
Mascherano - One of those un-sung hero's that allow star players to win games, will sit deep and cut out the counter attacking forces.
Ozil - One of the players that can do something special and his stock is rising game by game, when he learns how to finish the chances he creates, his goal tally will rise.
If you like to place bets on football matches i suggest for both teams to score however an Argentina win in 90 minutes. As a side bet it would be Lionel Messi to score at any time during the match.
