Netherlands vs. Argentina Prediction & Pick

These two teams last met in the knockout round of the 2014 World Cup. It was an intense matchup that remained an 0-0 draw at the end of extra time. It was Argentina that moved on via penalties. This one could very well come down to the wire, too, as both teams continue to build positive momentum.

This may be Lionel Messi’s final World Cup and falling to the Dutch in the quarterfinals is certainly not how he wants to go out. It’s a legitimate possibility, though. Netherlands is riding a 10-game unbeaten streak dating back to Nations League play and has scored first in every World Cup match so far.

I see this one going to extra time, with Argentina barely squeaking by thanks to its experience playing in high-pressured games.

FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: Netherlands: 1 | Argentina: 2

Netherlands vs. Argentina Best Bet

It’s worth pointing out that both of these squads have scored at least one goal in each of their four World Cup matches. That’s because the Netherlands and Argentina each roster talented forwards, including Messi, Julian Alvarez, Cody Gapko, and Memphis Dupay. Both of these defenses also gave up a goal in the Round of 16. This matchup has the makings of a high-scoring battle in the quarterfinals.

Bet: Both Teams to Score (+102)
