Argentina vs Australia Preview

World Cup Round of 16, Saturday, December 3rd, 19:00 (UK)

Argentina recovered from their defeat in the opening match and secured top spot in the group. The Argentines came into the tournament unbeaten in 35 matches. However, they got off to the worst possible start as Saudi Arabia came from a goal behind to win 2-1 on matchday 1. Scaloni’s men have gradually improved as the group stages progressed.

Argentina followed up the opening match defeat with back-to-back 2-0 victories. They weren’t as routine as they sound. The South Americans struggled to break down Mexico before Messi’s long-range strike. The seven-time Ballon d’Or then missed a penalty in the final group game before Alexis Mac Allister found the net. Two wins were enough to secure a seeded draw in the round of 16. The Argentines now take on Australia.

Getting out of the groups will be seen as a success for the Aussies. They beat both Denmark and Tunisia on their path to the knockout stages. They have already played France in this tournament so the quality of the Argentine attack shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Australia will be hoping they can dig in and defend for their lives. This has already been a memorable campaign for Graham Arnold and his players. Making it to the last eight at the expense of one of the tournament favourites would be the icing on the cake.

Argentina vs Australia Stats & Facts

  • Australia’s matches in this tournament have the second-highest average throws per game with 53.
  • Argentina’s World Cup matches are averaging 37 throws per game.
  • Lionel Messi is looking to score his first goal in the knockout stages of a World Cup – although he has assisted a goal in each of the last three editions of the tournament.

Argentina vs Australia Bet Builder

Australia have shown great fight in this tournament and a willingness to press their opponent. They came to Qatar with very few picking them to win a match, let alone make the knockout stages. Their work ethic and strength as a unit make them tricky opponents for anyone.

The Socceroos’ matches at this World Cup are averaging 53 throws per game. Their competitive games in 2022 are averaging 43.25. They will look to stop the Argentinian wingers in their tracks and this should lead to plenty of throws yet again.

Argentina’s matches are averaging fewer throws. Poland offered very little in terms of pressure when they played them in their last match. Don’t expect Australia to be as passive defensively. So far at this tournament, Argentina’s matches are averaging 37 throws per match.

Argentina had 22 corners across their three group matches. Australia will look to frustrate their opponents in the early phases of this one. This should lead to a few corners for Scaloni’s men. Australia’s opponents in Qatar have had six, five and eight corners. Over four corners for the favourites looks like a good pick here.

Finally, we are backing Argentina to win in 90 minutes. Australia quickly succumbed to the French attack after the first game. The South Americans have an embarrassment of riches in attack. They should be able to carve open the Aussies on Saturday. Argentina shouldn’t allow complacency to become an issue after the warning provided by Saudi Arabia at the start of the tournament.

  • Over 35.5 Throws In The Match
  • Over 4 Corners For Argentina
