Greece v Argentina World Cup 2010
June 22, 2010 - Kick off 19.30 GMT
Otto Rehhagel has played down his team‘s chances of making the last sixteen of the World Cup, claiming that Argentina are ‘far superior‘ to Greece, something which is designed to take any pressure from the Euro 2004 winners. However, it‘s also an honest assessment, especially as La Albiceleste broke down a South Korean defence in the last game which had previously seemed pretty strong. The reason why the current tournament favourites are longer odds than normal is based on the premise that Diego Maradona will rest some key players, although this is a squad that has real depth.
No other team has the luxury of having a player like Diego Milito on the bench, a player who scored both goals for Inter in their Champions League final win. There was an element of fortune about Greece‘s win over Nigeria which was achieved by the Super Eagles getting a man sent off and then a bad goalkeeping error. Is it really possible to believe that the Greek defence can keep a clean sheet after failing to do so in either of their other Group B games?
Best odds for the Argentina win is 1.70 with Interwetten.
