Nigeria were solid in their 1-0 loss to Argentina before they were beaten 2-1 by Greece when luck was against them on the day and they were reduced to 10 men which didn’t help their chances.

South Korea scored a top win over Greece before being hammered by an impressive Argentina side.

Nigeria vs South Korea match prediction

South Korea impressed against Greece before being dismantled by Argentina and a win here will almost assure qualification if the South Americans beat Greece as expected in the other game.

Nigeria can still qualify if they can win here and results go their way in the other match with an Argentine win by a couple of goals.

The Koreans have been more impressive for ours and we think they can get the job done here in what should be an entertaining game

Greece were deplorable against South Korea in their first match before a much better showing in their 2-1 win over Nigeria, although the Africans played with ten men for most of the game to allows the Greeks to be more offensive on the day.

They won;t have the same luxury against Argentina.

Argentina have progressed well with a 1-0 win over Nigeria before a thrashing of South Korea has them primed for this game.

Greece vs Argentina match predictions

Argentina have been very consistent this tournament and while they are on 6 points they still have not assured qualification.

A win or draw against Greece will make that happen and the class of Argentina should be too much for a Greece side who will find and 11 man Argentina a hotter proposition than a 10 man Nigeria.

Argentina the win here or if you want to be more adventurous have a crack at the -1.0 handicap.

Argentina Win @ $1.57 at Sportsbet

Back the South Americans to win and Messi is due for some luck so could be worth a shot to score at anytime @ $1.83.
