The second round of the World Cup has seen the favourites for each match reach the quarter-final stage and Argentina and Belgium can complete the set tonight.
La Albiceleste and the Red Devils take on Switzerland and the USA respectively looking to join Brazil, Colombia, Holland, Costa Rica, France and Germany in the last eight – making it a clean sweep.
And those who were too late to get on the favourites to qualify gravy train can make up for lost time with Ladbrokes’ latest Price Boost offer.
Backing both sides to win their games inside 90 minutes has been boosted from 7/4 to a hugely tempting 9/4!
Argentina look well-placed to beat Switzerland despite Ottmar Hitzfeld’s men cruising to victory over Honduras in their final group game.
The 5-2 scoreline against France is perhaps a more accurate reflection of where the Swiss are when faced with elite competition and the comfortable 3-1 win Argentina enjoyed last time the two met should be an indicator of what’s to come.
La Nati have failed to get beyond the second round for some 60 years and with Brazil failing to live up to hype, Messi and co. know now is their opportunity to end their 28-year wait to reclaim the trophy.
Belgium, meanwhile, are expected to sail through their second round encounter with the US after cruising through the group stage with three wins despite not firing on all cylinders.
The US will be prepared to pounce should the Red Devils underperform again but with a quarter-final spot at stake Marc Wilmots’ side should have ample motivation to turn it up a gear.
The European outfit are better-equipped in almost – if not, every – position (on paper) so the #Professor in you should be screaming for a Belgium win to be the pick here.
