Match-Up: Greece (Win or Draw) vs. Argentina (Win)

AP

Greece (1-1-0, 3 points) will meet Argentina (2-0-0, 6 points) in the Group B finale on Tuesday afternoon. Argentina has been extremely impressive with wins over South Korea (4-1) and Nigeria (1-0). With those wins and past tournament success, Argentina appears to be one of the favorites. Led by international superstars Lionel Messi and Carlos Teves, Argentina presents an extremely potent attack. Factor in Gonzalo Higuain who recorded a hat-trick against South Korea and Argentina has an offensive juggernaut.

Greece, who is making its first World Cup appearance, defeated a short-handed Nigeria team, 2-1 last week to keep their World Cup hopes alive. With Greece tied with South Korea in terms of points for second place, they will need at least a draw against Argentina in hopes of advancing.

Argentina is already moving onto the next round, so they may opt to rest some key players. However, there is always that competitive drive in soccer to dominate and Argentina definitely has that mentality. If they score a few times early, expect their core players to come out of the game. Potent attack alone, I’m picking Argentina to sweep Group B.

The Pick: Argentina Win

June Record: 9-11
