Argentina v Croatia Odds
Clashes between two heavyweight teams are few and far between in the group stages of the tournament so this one really is a match to saviour.
Argentina start the match as favourites for the win but they are under massive pressure following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Iceland at the weekend. Anything other than a win against the Croats could see them miss out on the last 16 and that makes this game all the more intriguing.
Lionel Messi was the villain of the peace for Jorge Sampaoli's men as he fluffed his penalty in the first match but few would be surprised if he bounced back here. Argentina will need their main man at his best against an experienced Croatia team which is fresh off a comfortable 2-0 win against Nigeria in their opening Group D game.
The World Cup hopes of both teams could hinge on the result of this one and it is Argentina who are the clear favourites at 21/20 with William Hill for the win. The same firm rate Croatia as 29/10 shots to claim the three points.
Both Teams To Score Looks A Big Price
There is no doubting the quality of the attacking players at the disposal of Argentina but their form over the last 18 months doesn't not warrant their price for this game.
Sampaoli was brought in to save their ailing qualification campaign and although they did eventually limp through to Russia, they have not been convincing at an stage of late. Lionel Messi has becoming increasingly deep in a bid to impact games which is causing havoc with the system and their defence looked a shambles against Iceland.
Croatia on the other hand are a settled group full of experienced players at this level and it showed as they swept past a woeful Nigeria. Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic are amongst the best midfield partnerships in Russia and in Dejan Lovren and Mario Mandzukic they have a spine which can see them through this game.
Iceland cut through Argentina with ease at times during their clash so we can certainly expect Croatia to score at least once in this match. Argentina have struggled but their is no denying their attacking talent which means that both teams to score looks a monster price at Even money with Ladbrokes.
