Special Bet! Argentina are 4/1 to beat Bosnia

| 13.06.2014

Coral are offering customers outstanding enhanced odds of 4/1 for Argentina to beat Bosnia Herzogovina in their first Group F game, with €/£10 the maximum bet.

Equipped with arguably the best attack in Brazil with Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, and Gonzalo Higuain, they are more than capable of doing the business at the right end of the pitch. Bosnia Captain, Emir Spahic’s legs are ageing and he may have trouble marshalling his defence to cope with the Argentine attack rotating at will.

Mercurial Messi has netted on 41 occasions in 46 appearances this term for Barcelona, also chipping in with 15 assists. One of his strike partners, Gonzalo Higuain had no trouble settling straight into new club Napoli, and scored 24 times in 46 outings. Aguero meanwhile, has tasted success twice already this season with Manchester City, after winning the League Cup and the Premier League title and will be hungry for more. The striker notched 28 goals, having appeared 34 times in all competitions.

In Angel di Maria, they have an assist machine, and a lot of the play will go through him. However, Alejandro Sabella also has the option to play Pablo Zabaleta at right full back, and if he is unleashed in place of Inter Milan’s Hugo Campagnaro, he can do damage with his marauding runs.

Javier Mascherano and one of either Lucas Biglia or Fernando Gago will provide an effective midfield screen, denying the likes of Miralem Pjanic and Zvjezdan Misimovic any space. Handily for Argentina, key Bosnia midfielder Sejad Salihovic is injured, so they will be lacking a spark to their crack-a-jack attack.

At the back for Sabella’s side, Ezequiel Garay is more than equipped to handle Edin Dzeko and his hammer-stroke, battering-ram approach. Argentina could select Premier League title winner Martin Demichelis alongside Garay, and with goalkeeper Sergio Romero, Argentina can not only win this, but also keep Bosnia at bay.
