Argentina v Australia = Under 2.5 Goals

Argentina have been priced up as the 2/11 favourites to win this round of 16 match and they have been handed a fairly straightforward passage. Lionel Scaloni’s tinkering has paid off and although La Albiceleste haven’t been completely convincing, they have enough match-winners in their squad and more than enough depth on the bench to win this game.

Nevertheless, Australia will be scrapping and battling throughout the 90 minutes and although we’re expecting them to fall short, they should give a good account of themselves. The Socceroos were battered by France, however, they managed to keep things tight against both Tunisia and Denmark and they should be able to hold firm for large periods here.  

Netherlands v USA = Cody Gapko (Netherlands) to Score Anytime

Not many members of the Netherlands squad have covered themselves in glory in Qatar with Louis Van Gaal’s side having looked fairly slow and laboured despite topping Group A. The Oranje were drawn in a fairly straightforward section and they have been given a fairly favourable draw in the round of 16.

Despite their underwhelming performances, PSV’s Cody Gapko has been one of the stars of the tournament so far and his price tag has been significantly inflated over the last couple of weeks. Gapko is the most likely player to shine in this tie and he could produce yet another masterclass on Saturday.
