Brazil vs Argentina (Friendly Match, 11.10.2014)

It’s not just Euro qualifiers with interesting matches this weekend as friendlies take front and center with some clashes for history books. One of these matches is the Brazil vs Argentina one, a clash that had a friendly vibe to it only by name. This rivalry dates way back and is only fueled by endless disputes of which country has the greatest footballer ever, is it Argentina’s Maradona or Brazil’s Pele?

Both teams changed managers, but only Brazil made a shuffle of their entire squad. Even if they have won their two friendlies after the disaster that was the World Cup for them, where they managed to concede 10 goals in two matches, it takes a little more time for the new players to integrate into the team. Dunga is now relying on Miranda and Maicon to keep the backline in check after dropping David Luiz out of the squad. Barcelona’s Neymar is set to clash with his teammate Messi for a chance to score, but unlike the Brazilian who might have to work alone for goals, Messi will have a very in-form Di Maria by his side.
Argentina lost the World Cup final against a Germany side that wanted the win more; a few months later they managed to win in a friendly match, where Germany did not want to win anymore. La Albiceleste has great players capable to decide or assist in deciding a match, but it takes Messi’s genius to actually make Argentina shine. Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria can be your backup plan for the goalscorer market for Argentina.

Julio Cesar has also been dropped from the squad and now Jefferson is set to do the impossible and keep a clean sheet for Brazil. Argentina will want to prove a point as in their last five head to head matches they only managed to win once, record a draw and lose the other three matches with minimal difference. Despite it being only a friendly it has too much at stake and pride won’t let either team take the match lightly.
William Hill did not pinpoint an obvious winner and offers 2.70 odds for an outright Brazil win, 2.40 for an Argentina one and 3.30 for a draw. For this market as well as for the correct score one the bookmaker offers the cash-in option which you could benefit from.
