In the World Cup semi-finals, coach Zlatko Dalic's team now faces the next endurance test. Before the match between Argentina and Croatia, the tip for the South Americans is much lower. Accordingly, Lionel Messi and Co. are seen quite clearly as favorites. However, it has already been proven several times that this "Goliath status" is hardly relevant at this World Cup finals.

Of course, the checkers will not be without a chance. Especially against the background that the Croatians were able to bring the gauchos to their knees 3-0 in the preliminary round at the World Cup in Russia four years ago. Some of the players from back then will be back on the pitch on Tuesday evening and will hopefully duel at a good level.

Because it turns out to be quite complicated to make a prediction on the outcome of the game between Argentina and Croatia after regular time, we will also present alternative betting options below.

Argentina have never been eliminated from a World Cup semi-final

Statistically, there are facts that speak for and against the sky blue and white. On the one hand, it is certainly helpful to know that the gauchos have never failed in a World Cup semi-final, but have finally reached the big final in all five semi-final games to date. All in all, the sixth entry into the final beckons. Only Germany played more often for the World Cup.

On the other hand, there is a poor record against European nations. Only one of the last seven matches against teams from the UEFA zone has been victorious at the World Cup. Three such encounters were lost and three more ended in a draw after 90 minutes, although the Argentines won on penalties in two out of three cases.

Lionel Messi on record hunt

Also exciting is the fact that the Albiceleste have scored at least once in all five World Cup games and always made it 1-0. With the Croatians, on the other hand, often falling behind, a prediction between Argentina and Croatia that the South Americans will score the opening goal of the game might be an appealing option.

In terms of personnel, however, there is one or the other failure to cope with. For example, Scaloni is forced to bring in a new left rail player as Acuna is missing yellow-banned. It is quite possible that Tagliafico will slip into the starting eleven. By the way, supplementary player Montiel also saw his second yellow card against Holland and is not available. Of course, the greatest hopes rest on Lionel Messi, who could equal Lothar Matthäus' record with his 25th World Cup game. The multiple world footballer is only a single goal away from going down in history as the sole Argentinian record goalscorer at World Cup finals.

Expected formation of Argentina:
E Martinez; Molina, Romero, Otamendi, Tagliafico; Fernandez, De Paul, Mac Allister; Di Maria, Messi, Alvarez
