Prediction & Tip

Nigeria go into this game knowing that at a win or a draw will most likely see them go through to the Round of 16. Argentina are sure to progress onwards, but have relied heavily on superstar Lionel Messi who has scored all of their goals at the tournament so far. Hard to find some value here, so the 11/2 that Ladbrokes are offering for a Argentina 2-0 win looks good to us.
