International Friendlies | Wednesday 12th November 2014 | 20:00
Crotia odds to win 12/1
Draw to win 5/1
Wednesday's test against Croatia in London should provide the Albiceleste with a good idea of how the team is progressing since Gerardo Martino took over post-World Cup. So far it has been a mixed start for the ex-Barca man; an excellent victory over Germany was followed by defeat to archrivals Brazil, who effectively nullified forward-thinking Argentina. With Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal waiting on the horizon, the international break gives Argentina the chance to measure up against solid European opposition ahead of next year's Copa America. Not only that, but Martino has the luxury of trying a few new faces in his team without the pressure of official competition demanding instant results. That freedom, added to a handful of injury and fitness worries in the Albiceleste camp, is likely to affect selection for the friendly. But the following 11 players, if picked, could just prove El Tata's best bet against the solid Balkan battlers. Croatia is undefeated in their last 4 matches and their last loss came against Mexico in world cup. In these matches they scored 12 goals while conceding only 3 goals. They are coming to this match after thrashing Azerbaijan by 6-0 before this match and they will be confident about their capability to win. So they will be in good mindset and they will try to walk out as the victor because of their last matches. But still they aren’t the favorites in this match. Argentina on the other hand is coming to this match after thrashing Hong Kong by 7-0. The world cup runners up had 3 matches after their loss to Germany in the world cups. Among those matches they defeated Germany in a friendly and lost to Brazil. So they will look to prolong their win even further in this match and thus they are the favorites to win this match. Messi might start in this match. So it will be a very exciting match to watch. Our prediction for this match is Argentina would to win by 3-1. but the score might vary.
