Competition: International Friendly
Market: Argentina win to nil
Odds: 13/8 @ Bet 365
Hoping this will be the year that they reclaim the World Cup, Argentina, led by Lionel Messi will travel to the National Stadium Ramat Gan to face off against Isreal on Saturday.
For Elisha Levy’s Isreal side, after enduring another difficult qualifying campaign, the hosts have once again missed out on the World Cup finals. Sadly for Isreal, their form of late has continued to disappoint, The Blue and Whites are coming off the back of a 2-1 loss to Romania at the National Stadium and Isreal have now lost six of their last eight. It will also be their form in the final third that will be a huge cause for concern for Levy’s side, Isreal have now failed to find the net in four of their six defeats and have only won one home match since September 2015.
As for Jorge Sampaoli Argentina side, after finishing runners-up four years ago, The Albiceleste will travel to Russia determined to go one step further this time. Although only a win on the last game of qualifying may have confirmed their spot in the finals, the visitors have been placed in a group with Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia and will be the overwhelming favorites to top the group. Coming off the back of a 4-0 home win against Haiti last week, unsurprisingly one man to watch is forward and captain Lionel Messi, crowned player of the tournament in 2014, Messi scored a hat-trick last time out. The visitors have also managed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last five.
