Brace yourself for 2/1 Leo double

Live on ITV: Sat 17.00: Lionel Messi is a 2/1 shot at bet365 to net at least twice for Argentina against Iran in World Cup Group F.

Iran battled well to secure a deserved point against Nigeria but despite rarely being troubeld in that one, it’s hard to see them keeping up with a far stronger opponent in the shape of Groupf F leaders Argentina. Indeed, it’s difficult to argue with Paddy Power’s price of 1/7 for La Albiceleste to come out on top.

The pair have met only once – to celebrate Real Madrid’s 75th anniversary in 1977, when Argentina won 1-0. It’s likely to be a wider margin of victory here and punters who concur can head to the handicaps to get 11/10 (BetVictor) against Argentina prevailing despite kicking-off two goals in arrears.

The Iranians will find it difficult to make much of an impact going forward, making Alejandro Sabella’s men a banker at 4/7 with Ladbrokes to win ‘to nil’.

More accurately, Betfred quote Argentina at 11/2 to rack up a 3-0 victory, although they might need the quick feet and skill of Lionel Messi to break down a team that will undoubtedly set up to keep things tight.

The Barcelona man is just 5/2 courtesy of 888Sport to open the scoring and bet365 post 2/1 against him notching twice or more.

Recommended Bets:
Lionel Messi to score two or more goals – 2/1 (bet365)
