Argentina v Switzerland Betting Preview – World Cup 2014

The winner of this one will go on to face the winner of Belgium and the USA in the quarter finals, and this one has the look of being a good match. Switzerland’s games have produced a lot of goals so far at the World Cup, with the Swiss having netted seven and conceded six. So it is likely that this one is going to go over 2.5 goals. The young Swiss side look to play an open game and they will be hoping to get past the second round of the tournament for the first time in their history. The last two appearances at this stage saw them crash out.

Switzerland have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last 10 matches at the World Cup, but have only posted one so far in Brazil. Their record against South American sides at the World Cup isn’t great as they have won just one of their previous six encounters (W1 D1 L4), that lone victory coming over Ecuador in their final group match. Xherdan Shaqiri netted a hat trick in the game and he is 4/1 to add to that tally against Argentina. Their 5-2 loss against France was a bit of an anomaly, as they have lost just two of their last 21 matches played now.

After failing to score in seven World cup matches, Lionel Messi arrived in Brazil in some style. He has netted four already and is 4/7 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. It’s just as well that he has shown up because Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain haven’t. Argentina have won four and drawn two of the previous six meetings with Switzerland. The only World Cup meeting between them ending ain 2-0 win for Argentina Back in 1966.

Argentina have won their last three World cup second round ties, so are in good form, having been knocked out just one in their last six appearances at this stage. However, they have only managed to post three wins in their last 10 World Cup matches against European teams (L3). Argentina have recorded the highest average position so far at the World Cup, even though they haven’t played that well, it has to be said. They should have more in the tank to come the further the tournament progresses. Both teams to score looks a viable proposition.

Argentina v Switzerland Odds

Argentina 1/2, Draw 3/1, Switzerland 6/1

If this match goes to extra time then you can get lost stake refunds on the First and Last Goalscorer markets at Stan James. Good coverage with Lionel Messi around and this applies to all game in the round of sixteen.
