Match facts

Argentina

  • Argentina and Iceland did not have the chance to take on each other in the past.
  • Jorge Sampaoli had to make changes to the initial 23-men squad calling up Enzo Perez to replace the injured Manuel Lanzini.
  • The first-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero is also sidelined as Willy Caballero will find his place in the starting lineup.

Iceland

  • Iceland have been very easy to break down in the last couple of months. The Nordic country conceded as many as 11 goals during the thread of three defeats and a draw in last four friendly internationals (against Mexico, Peru, Norway and Ghana).
  • Kolbein Sighthorsson is completely ruled out with a knee injury, while the physical condition of super important attacking likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Aron Gunnarsson and Alfred Finbogasson is quite complicated given all of them carried injuries in the past couple of months.

Predictions

This will no doubts be the music to the ears of Lionel Messi & company who will be lethal up front if given the smallest amount of space to shine. Given Iceland’s opposition in last two friendlies involved the likes of Norway (2-3 loss) and Ghana (2-2 draw), we do have to fancy the 1.66 odds offered for Lionel Messi to score anytime in his tournament opener.

Final Score 3 - 0

This will be a draw. Argentina have been poor in front of goal. They scored least number of goals in qualifiers. Iceland is very defensively organized and counter attacking team could create problems for Argentina defense and Messi will be man marked entire game. 0-0 FT
