One of the top contenders to win the 2018 World Cup in Russia is Argentina at odds of +800. Argentina is led by one of the top players in the world in Lionel Messi who scored seven goals in ten games in qualifying. Argentina has played in the World Cup a total of 16 times and won two titles, but none since 1986. Argentina has won 42 matches in World Cup history, fourth all-time behind Brazil, Germany and Italy.

Argentina 2018 World Cup Odds: +800

Argentina is getting a lot of respect from the oddsmakers at odds of +800.  Perhaps that is too much respect, as Argentina struggled just to get out of qualifying and needed heroics by Messi just to advance. Only Germany, France, Brazil and Spain have lower odds to win the 2018 World Cup than Argentina.

2018 World Cup Qualifying Results

Argentina went 7-4 with 7 draws in qualifying to finish third in CONMEBOL. They outscored opponents by a combined 19-16 and needed Messi to come through in a big way. Messi scored seven goals in ten games, as Argentina scored just 19 times overall, their lowest goal total since the round-robin format in CONMEBOL was introduced. Messi missed eight of Argentina’s qualifying matches but when he was on the field they picked up 21 of their 28 points.

Players to Watch

It is all about Lionel Messi when it comes to Argentina. Messi threatened to retire after Argentina lost the Copa America Centenario final in 2016, but he decided to return and continue playing for the national team. Other players to keep an eye on include Sergio Agüero, Ángel Di María and Gonzalo Higuaín

The Coach

Jorge Sampaoli took over from Edgardo Bauza in early June of 2017. He had previously spent a year coaching Sevilla. He also coached different teams in Peru, Ecuador and Chile. He led the Chilean national team to the Round of 16 four years ago in Brazil.

Argentina World Cup History

Argentina has a rich World Cup history with 16 appearances and two titles. They have played 77 matches in the World Cup, scoring 131 goals for an average of 1.7 goals per contest. They have participated in every World Cup since 1970. They have won it all twice, in 1978 and 1986. They finished second to Germany four years ago in Brazil.

Argentina 2018 World Cup Predictions

Can one player do enough to win a title at the 2018 World Cup?  Argentina has Lionel Messi but far too often they don’t get much from their other marquee players. If Argentina is to live up to their advance billing, they need players like Sergio Agüero and Gonzalo Higuaín to provide scoring support for Messi. They also need to get quality play in goal from Romero if they are to challenge teams like Germany or Brazil. Overall, Argentina looks overvalued at odds of +800 and matching the second place finish of four years ago seems unlikely.
