Netherlands vs. Argentina odds, prediction
This clash is a throwback to a classic World Cup rivalry, with the Netherlands aiming to make up for lost time, after missing out on the 2018 tournament, and Messi determined to win a first World Cup.
Argentina are slight favourites in this tie, with goals expected at both ends, as the Dutch have scored eight goals in four games in Qatar, and La Albiceleste have netted seven in Qatar.
