WORLD CUP 2022 :- Argentina vs Netherlands Preview, Line Up, Match Info


Lusail Stadium in Doha is going to witness the fireworks in Qatar today. Giants Argentina and Netherlands will clash in the second quarter-final match at 12.30 IST. A repeat of the 2014 World Cup semi-final match in Brazil is going to take place today. Argentina entered the final after defeating the Netherlands in a penalty shootout.

Louis van Gaal's Orange army take to the field today determined to atone for that one defeat. They enter the group stage unbeaten. And figures from the last two World Cups give them hope. The Dutch team, which entered the 2010 World Cup finals, reached the semi-finals in 2014 but failed to qualify in 2018. The Netherlands can overcome Argentina, who arrive with the strongest players in Europe, such as Van Dijk, Diong, Depay, Dumfries, Gakpo, Dilitt, Klaasen, and Blind. On the other hand, Lionel Scoloni and his team are determined to regain the title they lost in 2014. This could be superstar Lionel Messi's last World Cup, the Albiceleste will bring out the forgotten fight in today's match. What greater gift could Messi give them than the World Cup? After losing to Saudi Arabia in their first match at this stadium, Argentina defeated Mexico in their next match. Messi and his team will be able to repeat that feat. Meanwhile, it is yet to be confirmed if their midfielder Rodrigo De Paul is available for today's match. The player trained alone yesterday as he had minor problems with his muscles. There is no doubt that it will be a huge blow for Argentina if DePaul is unable to play. Fans hope that the he will play anyway. In the last 5 matches played between these two teams, both teams have won 2 each. A match was tied. We can see a life-and-death battle in which those who lose today will be eliminated from the World Cup. The winners of the Brazil-Croatia match will meet in the semi-finals. Therefore, an Argentina-Brazil dream semi-final is possible. Anyway, it remains to be seen how Messi and his team will react as the Dutch team prepares to avenge their defeat in the 2014 semi-finals.
