World Cup Betting: Latest Group D qualification odds as Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland battle it out

Gabriel Rossi
Croatia are already assured of a spot in the last 16 with six points but who will join Zlatko Dalic's men in the knockout stages after matchday three?

Croatia's eye-catching 3-0 win over Argentina in Nizhny Novgorod left the South American side with an uphill battle to keep their World Cup hopes alive.

Jorge Sampaoli would have been relieved to see Nigeria pick up three points with a 2-0 win over Iceland and that result means all three sides have a chance of progression.

bet365's latest Group D qualification odds see Argentina as 4/5 (1.80) to go through to the last 16 ahead of their clash with Nigeria in Saint Petersburg.

The same firm make Sampaoli's side 1/2 (1.50) to win the match but that looks much too short based on their displays in Russia so far. The Super Eagles are available at 6/1 (7.0) and the draw is 15/4 (3.80). It's 7/4 (2.75) that the African side qualify.

Iceland were seemingly in pole position to join Croatia in the last 16 but their matchday two defeat sees them out at 6/1 (7.0) to make it through to the knockout stages.

With just a point to their name so far the World Cup debutants would need to beat the group leaders as well as relying on a favourable result in the other game on Tuesday night.

bet365 make an Iceland win a 9/4 (3.25) shot to win the match with Zlatko Dalic already confirming that he's likely to rotate some of his squad. Despite that, they're 11/8 (2.38) favourites to make it a perfect three wins from three in Rostov.

While Argentina may be odds on to make it through to the knockout stages of the World Cup thanks to Friday's result, the 1/2 (1.50) about them beating Nigeria looks much too short based on what we've seen so far.

There's 13/8 (2.62) available on the African side avoiding defeat and with their pacey, direct style they surely have a decent enough chance of them taking something from the game. Especially given the 4-2 friendly win they managed against La Albiceleste earlier in the year.

The bookmakers continue to price up Argentina based on reputation as opposed to results and going against them in their final Group D game makes plenty of appeal at such skinny odds.
