Argentina – Iceland : Preview & Prediction
After a final lost in the 2014 edition, Argentina begins its World Cup with a lot of ambitions. If the qualification course proved to be very complicated, the Argentinian players know that the competition will be completely different. Fellows in a delicate hen with Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria, the Argentina will not have the right to the error for their entry in the lists. Opposed Icelanders, the men of Jorge Sampaoli will try to win the three points. Dreaming of being able to lift one of the only trophies he did not win, Lionel Messi should be back as ever for the event. Author of a double in the only preparation meeting of Argentina, La Pulga could play bad tricks on the Icelandic defense. If the players of Heimir Hallgrímsson will still play their chance luckily in this first round, the game against the Argentineans could however be tricky for Iceland.
During the preparation phase, Argentina won largely their only game against Haiti (4-0).
Iceland remain on a series of four games without a win.
During their last three meetings against a European nation, the Argentines have imposed themselves twice. 2-0 against Italy. 1-0 against Russia.
Albiceleste have lost only two games in their last eleven outings.
The Iceland compete for the first time in their history the World Cup. Lack of experience ?
Hoping to achieve a beautiful course as at Euro 2016, Iceland intends to beat the odds in this first round. However, the march of Argentina seems too high for the Icelandic team. On a series of four games without a win, the Icelanders do not arrive with full confidence in the Albiceleste. Having a Lionel Messi in great shape, Argentina should be able to return in the best possible way in the competition.
