Germany Vs Argentina

The 2014 FIFA World Cup has finally arrived. It’s been a long road for both these sides, who thoroughly deserve their spot in the biggest sporting game in the world. Argentina will have a huge support for the final and will be drooling at the prospect of being crowned champions at the Maracana. La Albiceleste were my pre-tournament favourites however, we haven’t seen a top class performance from them as of yet. Of course any team that possesses Lionel Messi can never be written off but they struggled to break down a stubborn Dutch side and I wonder how much that game will have taken out of the South Americans.

Germany cruised through their semi-final and crucially had an extra day to recover ahead of Sunday’s final. I do think though that everybody’s judgement may be slightly clouded in light of that emphatic win against Brazil and it will be an extremely close match. Joachim Low is fortunate enough to have a fully fit side to choose from and is expected to feature the same line-up he did against Brazil, with veteran Miroslav Klose linking up with Thomas Muller up top.
I’m backing the Germans to end their drought for World Cup glory and edge past Argentina in Rio.

Prediction 2-1
