Qatar vs Argentina Match Preview
Qatar have not been the whipping boys of the tournament that many expected having drawn 2-2 in their opener with Paraguay they only lost 1-0 to Colombia in their second fixture. It means they have one point from two games and are above their opponents here on goal-difference.
Al-Annabi are still capable of qualifying if they get a positive result as 8 sides will qualify from the three groups of four. They are outsiders but this Argentina have side not impressed so far in this Copa America campaign.
Argentina find themselves bottom of the group after two fixtures having played two and lost one (to Colombia 2-0) and drawn one (with Paraguay 1-1). Lionel Messi was once more their saviour in the last game helping them to come from behind to claim a point.
Albiceleste will be fancied here given the gulf in class between the players both sides have to choose but they have not shown much form of late. Getting to the last eight is still very much possible but you would not fancy them when they met some of the better sides.
It is hard to side with Argentina at such short odds and while they probably should have enough to get over the line I do not see them blowing Qatar away. Taking the South Americans to win the game and under 3.5 goals looks sensible while the same result and under 2.5 goals increases the value.
