World Cup Preview: Qf 3: Argentina V Germany

WORLD CUP BETTING: Live on BBC1: Sat 15.00: Day 23 (Saturday) of the World Cup and moving on to the 3rd quarter final: Argentina v Germany is a mouth-watering clash between 2 attacking outfits.

The games certainly become harder to call as the World Cup progresses and the quarter-final showdown between Argentina and Germany undoubtedly falls into the ‘could go either way’ category despite the fact that Diego Maradona’s men are relatively strong favourites at 29/20 with Betdaq.

The South Americans have looked formidable so far and many pundits fancy them at 17/4 (Jaxx.com) to go all the way. However, they have yet to face a side as good as Joachim Low’s and the team that accounted for England so emphatically look overpriced at 5/2 with Ladbrokes. That said, even against Fabio Capello’s dismal charges, the Germans showed moments of vulnerability, so even though they shade this one in terms of value, viewers could be in for a cracker.

It would also be unwise to ignore the threat of a draw, quoted at 11/5 by Stan James, and bet365’s 13/10 for Low’s troops to qualify is a safer bet than a victory in normal time, especially as you wouldn’t bet against Germany winning a penalty shootout (10/1, Betfred), if it’s all-square after 120 minutes.

Elsewhere, it seems inconceivable that with the quality of attackers on show, bets on both teams to score at 10/11 (William Hill) won’t prove profitable and in-form Gonzalo Higuain looks like a man to follow in that department; the Argentine marksman a tasty 6/4 courtesy of Paddy Power, to add to his four goals in a clash that is an alluring 11/10 (Totesport) to produce three or more.

Compare all World Cup odds for day 19 and bet at the best prices.

Recommended Bets:
Germany to qualify – 13/10 (bet365)
Both teams to score – 10/11 (William Hill)
Match to produce three or more goals – 11/10 (Totesport)
