Argentina v Iceland Match Odds

This does have the feeling of a David vs Goliath clash with one of the historical super powers in the game taking on the smallest nation in ther tournament and making their FIFA World Cup debut.

Led by Lionel Messi, Argentina made it all the way to the Final four years ago and although the path back to the tournament has been a rocky one, they certainly do have enough talent to go all the way. The Argentine's limped through to Russia but their squad remains remarkable in attacking areas with Messi joined by the likes of Higuain, Dybala and Di Maria among others.

Iceland shocked Europe with their run at Euro 2016 but they remain a limited side and that is reflected in their price of 11/1 with Betfred to claim a massive shock win. Argentina start the match as the red hot jollies with the same firm rating them as 1/3 punts to pick up the win in Moscow on Saturday afternoon.

Lionel Messi Can Cut Through Tough Iceland Defence

This might well be the last chance for the great Lionel Messi to win the World Cup during his career and he goes into the tournament in great form.

The Barcelona striker has scored a hat-trick in two of his last three matches for the National team and it was his goals which saw the country squeak through to the Finals themselves.

A deep lying Iceland defence will of course be tough to break down but if any team has the tools going forward to cut through their stubbornness, it is Jorge Sampaoli's men.

The South American team are far from perfect and do look shaky in defence but in Messi they have the best player at the tournament and this is a match where they need their talisman to shine. Messi is going to be popular in the betting and backing him to score two or more goals on Saturday is a great punt at 16/5 with William Hill.
