Argentina vs Germany match prediction

Should be a fantastic clash between two teams with plenty of history and Argentina will looking to turn the tables on Germany for  2006 when the South Americans were knocked out at this stage on penalties.

Germany has been most impressive and their youngsters have shown experience belying their years and they face their biggest test in this clash.

Many football pundits have declared Argentina weak down back but they have only conceded two goals to date in four matches and have averaged 2.5 goals a game themselves.

We fancy Argentina to get through to the semi finals against a German side who will have a crack but be found wanting when the game is there to be won.

Argentina Win @ $2.38 at Sportsbet
