Lionel Messi missed a penalty in La Albiceleste’s opening game against Iceland that finished 1-1. While the South Americans boast a wealth of attacking talent and should prove a match for any side on that basis, their defensive showing in that encounter means goals look assured here.
Croatia had few problems in getting the better of a toothless Nigeria side in their opening game and put themselves in pole position to qualify as group winners on matchday one.
The last time the European side played out a 0-0 draw as the second leg of their play-off match against Greece albeit the tie was essentially over thanks to the 4-1 victory in the previous meeting. Prior to that, their last goalless draw came in September 2015.
Argentina can’t afford to settle for a draw in this game given how well-matched this group looks and that need to force the issue is a great sign for goals backers.
A 0-0 draw looks extremely unlikely and at 28/1 (29.0) new Coral customers can cheer on a goal at a huge price on Thursday evening.
