Argentina face Greece in the third and final match of group B as both teams look for the win that could take them into the last 16 and the all-important knock-out stages of the 2010 World Cup. Argentina are the big team in Group B with Nigeria and South Korea the other two teams in the section and they will be playing at exactly the same time. Diego Maradona will be under pressure to take his team to the latter stages of the tournament and will be expecting to claim the three points here. The Argentinians struggled in qualification but are still expected to go well in the World Cup, they are full of top class players and should be too strong for the tough Greek side. Argentina have all but qualified and a draw against the Greeks would definitely see them through. A draw might also be enough for Greece but they would have to rely on the result of the other match.
Greece went through the play-off route to get to South Africa but will be out to make it to the last 16, they are most remembered for their Euro 2004 win when huge outsiders so should not be underestimated.
Argentina v Greece Match Odds
Argentina are one of the top teams in world football and that id reflected in their odds-on status to beat the Greeks here and claim the three points in Group B. Greece are not without a chance and may fancy their chances of picking up a point against the sometimes inconsistent Argentinians. Even the most patriotic Greek would struggle to justify a punt on the Greeks to take the three points but we feel that the draw looks like good value.
