Colombia and Argentina to Draw

These two teams both have the same ambition – to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. Although Argentina is doing a bit better at the moment, Colombia has enough quality to make this an exciting and close match. With that in mind, our prediction is for this duel to end in a draw, like two of the last five h2h meeting between these teams.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

It’s hard to decide whether it’s better to bet on over or under in this game. After all, Colombia has gone over 2.5 total goals in all five of their matches in the WC Qualifiers, while Argentina has gone under 2.5 total goals in four of their five matches in the same competition. So, the number of goals in this one depends on which team manages to control the game. That being said, four of the last five meetings between these two teams have gone under 2.5 total goals, so that sounds like a more reasonable bet to us.

Lionel Messi to Score at Any Time

If we are to see any goals in the match between Colombia and Argentina, Lionel Messi has the greatest chance to score at least one of them. After all, the Argentinian captain has scored 72 goals for the national team in his career, more than any other player in the history of Argentina, but he is far from finished. It’s always smart to bet on a legend like Messi to score, so that’s our final suggestion.

Colombia vs Argentina preview: A close duel between two great teams

The two teams have enough quality to make it to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but there are other quality teams in South America too. So, let’s take a closer look at these teams and what we can expect from their duel.

Colombia

After participating in the last two World Cups, Colombia is certainly hoping to make it to Qatar as well. However, they are currently sixth in the standings and they need to improve their form if they want to achieve this. In the first five rounds of the WC Qualifiers, Colombia has won twice, lost twice, and drawn once. Furthermore, one of the losses was an embarrassing 6-1 collapse in Ecuador, which shocked their fans and the rest of the football world.

Argentina

Although the Argentinian team isn’t exactly playing as well as they can based on their potential, they are still undefeated in the first five rounds with three wins and two draws. However, the two draws have come at their home court against Paraguay and Chile, so there is still room for improvement for Argentine. In any case, the team is doing well and it would be a huge surprise to see them fail to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
