Match # 64 FIFA World Cup 2014 will figure out the next world champion in soccer. There were 32 countries which qualified to battle for the title, and now it comes to 2 sides only. It will be either Argentina or Germany which will be called the world leader in football for the next 4 years.
Head to Head
These 2 sides played 20 occasions against each other before. Argentina won 9, Germany 6, and 5 of those ended in a draw. There were 56 goals scored in total. Both scored 28 each. So, simply there is nothing that can separate the 2 in terms of overall previous data. Germany, however, has a better record against Argentina in world cups. (West) Germany won against the South American team in 1958 (3-1), 1990 (1-0 in final), 2006 (4-2 in penalty shoot-out) and 2010 (4-0). Argentina won only in 1986 (3-2 in final).

FIFA World Cup 2014: Argentina vs Germany match predictions
Argentina, which began slow in the event, has constantly developed in its game from one match to another. Even though it never seemed as overwhelming as Germany, it always managed a restrained control over the matches it played. Germany, however, has seemed threatening on its best days but looked susceptible at times. Lionel Messi will make all the difference and win it 3-2 for his side.
