International Friendly Odds – Brazil vs Argentina
Zack GarrisonNo comments
Argentina is the slight favorite to win, listed at +130 in the money line compared to +200 for Brazil. The draw pays out at +240.
Brazil and Argentina have met 95 times in the past, and there is little to separate the two rivals. La Albiceleste have 36 wins compared to 35 for La Canarinha. The remaining 24 matches ended in a draw. However, in their last five battles, Brazil has gotten the better of Argentina (3W, 1D, 1L).
This will be the first game for Lionel Messi in an Argentinian jersey since losing the World Cup final against Germany. Knowing what kind of athlete and competitor Messi is, he should be in top form for this match.
On the other side, Dunga called on the 2007 FIFA Ballon d’Or winner, Kak?, after he missed the World Cup in 2014.
Fans should expect a high-intensity game between these fierce rivals and, ultimately, an Argentina win. La Albiceleste have more playmakers on offense and a better team overall.
