Netherlands vs Argentina by Topspin77
What a shame last night, Brazil was destroyed by Zee Germans and no matter how much I like the Germans in general, I just want Netherlands or Argentina to beat them out - personal opinion.
Netherlands has lost just a single time with Argentina winning 3 times and making 2 draws. They have scored 8 times and have conceded twice.
Argentina has beat Netherlands in 1978 final with Kempes making them champions of the world on their own field. Eben that win came after 90 minutes.
Netherlands is having a splendid coach, a man with a great philosophy and skills, something that Argentina has never had. I am writing about Van Gaal. Seems that Van Persie will play and the rumors spread that he will not play are just a tactic of intimidation.
- Argentina played well in defensive after the group stage. They have not dominated the matches as ball possession, but they closed the spaces with Switzerland and Belgium. They managed to score with Belgium with a bizarre goal and after that they played defensively. They will play 4-3-3 with a midfield composed by players that have a defensive profile.
- Holland has played attacking football in every match. They have been good in defensive too, despite having some slow defenders. That might be their problem, though. They will play 3-4-1-2 with a midfield with players that are having attacking profile.
Will be a tough match. I expect cards to show, the match is extremely important and both have players that are not avoiding tough tackles.
The referee is Cuneyt Cakir, one that is showing many cards. He is 37 years old and I expect him to control the match by booking the contacts.
My bet is over 3 cards.
Holland (3-4-1-2): Cillessen – Martins Indi, Vlaar, de Vrij – Blind, Wijnaldum, de Guzmán, Kuyt – Sneijder – Robben, van Persie
Argentina (4-3-3): Romero – Rojo, Garay, Demichelis, Zabaleta – Gago, Mascherano, E. Perez – Lavezzi, Higuaín, Messi.
