Fans in La Plata were most likely disappointed with Argentina’s opening 1-1 draw with Bolivia, Sergio Aguero’s 75th minute equalizer averting embarrassment. Batista’s men now head to Santa Fe as 4/9 favs with bet365 to beat Colombia, themselves 15/2 with Boylesports to maintain a 100% record and beat the host nation.
Colombia hardly sparkled against a very inexperienced Costa Rica side but a 1-0 win put 3 points on the board. The feeling is that 1 point with Argentina will set them up nicely for their game with Bolivia and give them an excellent chance to progress. The draw is 7/2 with .
Colombia may struggle to keep out the Argentinian attack though, comprising of such talents as Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi and Angel di Maria so may have to utilise their own talents (such as Falcao) to register a goal. William Hill’s 13/10 about both teams to score holds appeal as Argentina’s defence is not traditionally strong but their attack should challenge the Colombians.
Carlos Tevez, perhaps mentally lifted after confirming his desire to leave Man City, is 13/10 to notch anytime with Unibet.
