Netherlands vs Argentina 2014 World Cup preview

Both teams are in great form to this point in the competition. La Albiceleste have qualified for semi finals after 24 years, whereas their rivals have qualified for second time in a row.

In last game against Belgium, the Real Madrid midfielder Angel di Maria left the field due to injury. He is still in doubt to make appearance against Holland. Once again, the team will depend on Lionel Messi more than before. Winning goal against Belgium scored by Gonzalo Higuain was netted after his last scored against Italy in Aug 2013.

So, Holland have an advantage of stopping Messi without Angel di maria. If they keep possession against their competitors, then it will be very tough for whites & sky blues to break the tough defense of Orange. Manchester City’s forward Sergio Aguero is expected to play against Dutchmen, but there are no strong words about his presence.

The South American team have won just one game out of last 8 games played against the European team. While, Netherlands have won 4 games in past 8 meetings. Can Messi take his national team to the final for the first time in his football history?
