FIFA World Cup 2014: Argentina vs Netherlands match predictions
Argentina’s slow strategies will not work in this game. It has to match the Nederlander pace. However, it will be more vital which side will finish more. Failing to score against a fairly weakened side like Costa Rica is scary for the Dutch which will score against Argentina anyway. Argentina will control to score one goal more than its opposition this time as well and win it 3-2.
