World Cup 2022 Argentina vs Australia: Predictions

On the first side, we have one of the main favorites of the tournament, Argentina. On the other side is ambitious Australia.

Argentina are favorites in this match, we also expect an extra time in this match. Though the disastrous start, Argentina were strong enough to win the other 2 matches and now they are ready to move forward and win Australia as well. Lionel Messi and friends will strive to give their best to overcome any opponent and potential obstacle in the journey of their much desired World Cup trophy.

Yet, surely Australia does not agree with all this, and will not easily let Argentina win. Even if they don’t have an impressive football history, like Argentina, they have a well-organized team, ready to fight till the end.
