Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Football Betting Previews, Odds And Tips
When you hear about a football game between Argentina and Honduras, what is your first idea? You would think that the Argentinians should have no problem with the Caribbean minnows, correct? That would probably be true in many circumstances, but the 2016 Olympic Tournament is not one of them – the two teams are almost perfectly matched after two days, and their direct game for a place in the Quarter-Finals will surely prove to be spectacular.
10/08/2016 – Brasilia
Both teams lost against Portugal, conceded two goals, but Honduras also managed to score in the first minute of their clash. They haven’t shown great talent or creativity but are a very hard-working squad that enjoys direct, simple football.
This type of game has proven to be too much for Algeria on day 1, a game in which Honduras only had the ball 42% of the time, but won 3-2. They will surely look to play the same type of football against Argentina, but will face a completely different challenge – because the South Americans are much deadlier on the ball.
Meanwhile, Argentina lost 0-2 against Portugal after a rather even game on day 1 and beat Algeria 2-1 on day two, after a game in which each team had a player sent off.
We could clearly see that when their attacking players are at the top of their game, it’s very hard for any team to stop them.
With the Hondurans more than willing to give them possession, the Argentinians must ensure two things: that they score and that they remain calm and composed in defense.
Both teams are battling for a qualification place, but the Argentinians need to win to take over second place. This is why we are sure they will have more possession, fewer yellow cards and will score at least once against the Caribbean team.
The Hondurans also know that playing for 0-0 isn’t a viable option, and they will be looking to score a goal or two as well. If you are looking for a high-odd bet, try Argentina to win and over 2,5 goals.
