Not going to waste too much time discussing this match in detail, we all know the players well enough. Gilberto Silva is suspended for Brazil and Argentina, who have swept all before them , in 5 easy victories, look the strongest team on paper. Especially in midfield, where Riquelme looks back to his very best. His return to Boca Juniors, albeit coinciding with some ugly drug rumours, certainly seems to have revitalised him. Crespo seems to be fit to return, so once again, they have an abundance of riches up front.

However, these things are never as simple as they seem when these two meet, last time round Argentina had one hand on the cup, only to be robbed at the eleventh hour, by a late Brazilian equaliser. It could easily happen again. I feel that we will see goals, last 7 meetings have been "over", with six of them producing 4 or more and this is the better option to my mind.

5.5 points "over" 2.5 goals 1.84 asian line.

Good Luck.
