[World Cup 2022 Prediction] A fascinating World Cup 2022 quarter-final that guarantees goals takes place at the Lusail Iconic Stadium on Friday evening, when Netherlands battles Argentina.

Netherlands vs Argentina Prediction: Tough match for Messi?

The Netherlands and Argentina will meet in the World Cup Quarter-Finals for the sixth time in their history when they meet in Qatar 2022. We're anticipating an intriguing 90 minutes between a Dutch side that loves to play on the front foot and an Argentina one that has been depending on the magic of 35-year-old Lionel Messi.

Netherlands form

Cody Gakpo's hot streak in front of goal may have ended against the USA, but Van Gaal's effervescent wing-backs carried the goalscoring weight in Saturday's last-16 clash when the Americans failed to capitalise on a quick start and were punished for it.

Netherlands form

Indeed, the Netherlands has already reached the last eight in four of their previous five World Cup competitions, with the exception of a last-16 exit in 2006, and they advanced to the semi-finals in both 2010 and 2014 before failing to qualify for the Russia edition.

The 2010 runners-up have not won a World Cup quarter-final game since 1994  and the Netherlands are unbeaten in 19 matches in all competitions, but something has to change when two attack heavyweights fight for supremacy.

Argentina form

The script had been written for Lionel Messi to overcome his knockout hoodoo in his 1,000th career match, and the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner eventually scored his first non-group stage World Cup goal in a characteristic Messi manner against Australia, who did not go down waving the white flag.

Argentina form

The Paris Saint-Germain veteran scored with a low finish before Julian Alvarez robbed Mathew Ryan of the ball for Argentina's second - much to the chagrin of the goalkeeper's Copenhagen opponent Kamil Grabara - before Craig Goodwin's deflected shot gave Australia hope of an unlikely comeback.

History does not favour Lionel Scaloni's men, but a 13-game scoring streak in all competitions does, and La Albiceleste would be wise to wrap Messi in cotton wool as they look to end a barren streak in previous meetings with the Dutch. Indeed, Argentina has failed to score in each of their past three encounters against the Netherlands, who had held La Albiceleste to two 0-0 draws in their most recent two World Cup meetings - winning the 2014 semi-final on penalties - but the Qatar tournament does not need another goalless match.

Netherlands vs Argentina H2H Stats

Across all competitions, the two sides have met nine times. Five of these matchups have taken place in the World Cup, while the remaining four meetings have been friendly contests. 

The Netherlands have been the superior team in these games and have a 4-3 advantage in victories, while the spoils have been split just a handful of times between them. In the five World Cup matches, both nations have two wins to their names, while one game has finished in a tie. They last met in the 2014 World Cup semi-finals, which Argentina won on penalties following a goalless 120-minute match.

As you can see, the odds are currently stacked in favour of Argentina, but we anticipate a competitive encounter between these two great footballing nations. If you want to support a First Goalscorer in this game then the bookies recommend Lionel Messi whose odds are presently valued at about 9/2 to score first.

The bookies also appear to anticipate that this game will be won by Argentina in 90 minutes as you can obtain odds of 6/5 on that event, while the Netherlands to win in extra-time is priced at 13/1. If you wanted to support a 35-year-old Lionel Messi to score a hat trick in this game then you may get some extremely fantastic odds of 66/1.

Netherlands vs Argentina Betting Tips

Netherlands 2-2 Argentina (Argentina to win on penalties)

The footballing gods should not provide another dreary 0-0 with so much offensive quality on the Lusail pitch and the Dutch's habit of lightning-quick counter-attacks, and both teams also possess a slight weakness to imply that a high-scoring encounter should be on the menu.

Stalemates between the Netherlands and Argentina have been typical at the World Cup, and we don't anticipate that to change here, so Scaloni's team may have to rely on their penalty-kick skill to advance to the World Cup semi-finals against Croatia or Brazil.

Over 2.5 Goals

Argentina has scored at least three goals in five of its past seven international matches across all tournaments, while the Netherlands defeated the USA 3-1 in the World Cup's last round. We absolutely expect at least three goals in this Quarter-Final match between two clubs that thrive when they play offensive football. Neither defence inspires great confidence, and we believe the game will be determined by the attackers.

Netherlands vs Argentina Best Tips From Betimate

  • Both Teams to Score: Yes

We are anticipating goals in this game at both ends of the pitch. Both sides have scored in two of the Netherlands' four World Cup games in Qatar, while Argentina has done the same. Both Netherlands and Argentina scored at least two goals in their past 16 matches but also surrendered a goal apiece against lower opponents, so you can understand why we're not picking either team to preserve a clean sheet in their Quarter-Final encounter.
