I cannot accept these odds. Argentina showed nothing to deserve to be such favourites. I find 1X very tempting.
Messi is cursed in the NT, and I see no one who would be able to step up to help him.

I agree. I'm not convinced Argentina deserve these odds. They failed to impress in qualifying and there seem to be conflicts in the squad and with the trainer. I can't see them suddenly setting catching fire although this Nigerian squad isn't great to be frank. They get progressively weaker from front to back and would probably be the weakest side in the R16 (bar Japan), if they advance.

Argentina are really bad, but somehow i feel they will nick this one 0:1, 1:2, or in best case 0:2. Nigerian approach to this match could prove decisive, if they go for 1 point, i think they will lose, if they go out and play to win, they have a chance.

As against Croatia, XI at 95% sure

Armani;
Mercado, Otamendi, Rojo, Tagliafico;
Mascherano, Banega, Enzo Pérez;
Messi, Di Maria;
Higuaín.

bets on cards are always a gamble imo because the referees dont follow the rules strictly enough. for example yesterday for sure we should have seen a red in the game between spain and morocco but at one point the ref even stopped giving yellows. so you never know.

nigeria are pretty physical side and usually tackle hard. argentina dont often make nasty fouls but once they are high on emotion, like against croatia, yellow cards can start to rain down. the problem is, if a lot of yellows are given early on then the ref would either stop to 'not ruin the game' or the players would stop to not get sent off. but if you believe nigeria can keep it 0-0 or take the lead then a bet on cards is not nonsense.

bet365 has o4.5 cards at 2.10, not bad

Again no Di Maria in starting 11
Sampoli is More chaotic then Maradona was as coach.
Still one economical/marketing factor is on side of Messi & others - how much money will be lost if the best player on the world goes home after group games?
Messi is idol off half of Asian people, not only in Argentina. I know the contra argument on this "Yes, but C.R & Neymar are also best , and they are still in W.C "

Betting:
Only live bets for this game.
If you see Messi putting his hend between the eyes, like on game against Croatia (afte national anthems) it would be sign that they are relegated
Pre odds are low

Honesty I expect that we see bigger change tonight in the line up.Maybe Dybala in the starting 11.After last results don t think that Messi could make pressure on coach and I think that we could see smth like German secound half against Sweden.I mine they didn t forgot to play they just didn t prepared well clash vs Croatia...

If you think there will be cards,you could try a card before minute 31:00 or after minute 31:00 1.83 @bet365 Relatively the same value with just one card needed

Sampaoli is not the coach anymore, was sacked internally.

Oficially, he will stay with the group since the end of Argentina WC, but he don't make the line-up nor tactical formation, he decides nothing since 0-3.

Line-up is the same XI I wrote above, for the same reason. Messi & friends vs Nigeria.

Kind of difficult to predict how this "sacking" of the coach will affect Argentina tonight. My guess is that it will do very little change, unless the Argentine players played badly on purpose only to ruin it for Sampaoli. That seems too far fetch for me, so Argentinas cramped up play should continue. Odds on a draw here, which is more than enough for Nigeria are very tempting, imo.

Yea they are turning this into basketball. So many soft penalties, with all VAR we should have seen way more better improved performances from refs and instead we get this multitude of penalties for the slightest of touch, for handballs which are clearly non-intentional. This is not what i expected from VAR.
Argies got a lucky escape here, altghough they showed heart this time, Messi played good in first half, they all bossed the first half, playing better but after that crap pen everything change, we saw the same argies from previous games, they were there for the taking, but nigerian inexperience payed its price. Still i dont see how argies will cope with France, not that France is some kind of monster team, but this argies are just not a team, lots of heart today but little organisation, no coach, i mean how on world can you resist not fading them?

Argies being Underdog could change their approach and can be their chance. Hm, cannot imagine France cheering cause they play Argies now.
Think it***8217;s more difficult for Les Bleus

Argies showed how fragile they are. Brilliant first half, Nigerians didnt had single chance. Total control by Argies. Than funny penalty changed everything. Messi and co forgot to play. No team play no nothing. Higuain cant play for my street team and Mazza (dont have words to descibe him). Cant see them doing much here.

True. Dont understand these line-ups.
Enzo Perez: joke. Di Maria: totally out of form or overrated? Higuain: lol.
Why no Dybala? No Aguero?

Neither me.Where is Lo Celso?Why Federico Fazio and Icardi have not been called? Higuain looks slow and clumsy,he blasted the best opportunity far beyond the crossbar
