Live on ESPN: Sat 23.15: Argentina and Uruguay will fight out a very tight quater final; Tevez & co are 12/5 to win it by 1 (Paddy Power).
Thanks to Sergio Aguero, Argentina come into this quarter final looking a lot sharper than when they started out so Stan James make them 8/13 to beat Uruguay and progress to the semis.
On the balance of things, Argentina deserve to be favourites but perhaps 8/13 is a bit disrespectful to Uruguay who are pretty large at 11/2 to win (bet365). Uruguay have been sluggish though so far, scoring just 3 in 3 games with 1 win to show. A draw is probably the best they can hope for (14/5, ) in a game that is likely to be quite feisty.
Tight scorelines in Argentina’s favour is the order of the day; Paddy Power going 12/5 for an Argentina win by 1 goal after they finally found some sort of gear against Costa Rica. More accurate punters can look at 2-1 to Argentina, 8/1 with Skybet, or 1-0, 6/1 with Betfred.
