Argentina vs Belgium

Online Odds: Bovada has Argentina -185 and Belgium +155

Again we have 2 teams who were expected to win their groups and advance to the Quarterfinals. And again we have 2 teams who have not disappointed. Both have staved off upsets game after game, each winning 4 straight heading into Saturday’s showdown.

Many picked Belgium as a possible sleeper to reach the finals before this tournament started. Then they looked shaky, scoring few goals and winning games in the final minutes during group play. However, they seem to be emerging and playing their best at the right time. In their match vs the USA, they managed to put together a very strong performance. Though again they didn’t score until very late, they had many incredible opportunities that would have gone in against a lesser goalkeeper. Once they finally put in the first goal, they quickly followed it with an impressive second goal to seal the game in extra time.

Argentina has also won a few matches with late goals (such as their Iran win). Their greatest criticism is that the team relies too much on Messi. They don’t have any other confident performers to take some of the pressure off of Lionel. Frankly, this is one of the truest analyses of this entire tournament. And it will be the downfall of Argentina this weekend.

Belgium have more depth, better overall strikers, and are peaking at the right time.
