Argentina, a 4/1 shot with Stan James to win the tournament, start their campaign against Bosnia late on Sunday.
Nevertheless, with Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko leading the Bosnian line, this might not be as straight forward a win for the South Americans as some believe.
Bosnia for example, are more than capable of scoring against a team whose defence is certainly a potential weakness and odds-against quotes of 11/10 (BetVictor) for both teams to find the net are subsequently hard to resist.
Potentially replicating Brazil’s opener on Thursday however, Argentina’s attacking prowess should ultimately see them home and Ladbrokes chalk 14/5 in favour of them winning by a solitary goal.
More accurately, the same firm quote Alejandro Sabella’s troops at 17/2 to shade it 2-1 and it’s 13/5 via Coral for them to prevail but also concede.
Argentina to win and both teams to score – 13/5 (Coral)
