The 2022 FIFA World Cup is set to be underway and punters are already placing their stakes on who will lift the tournament gold.

to place long-term stakes on them so the pressure is on. But among these increased expectations, what are the bookies saying? How do they view Argentina? Read on and find out.

What Are the Odds Of Argentina Leaving the Group Stage?

Argentina is in group C and they are with three other countries namely:

  • Saudi Arabia

  • Mexico

  • Poland

Merely looking at the group table alone, it is quite obvious that Argentina is the favorite from the group. In fact, most people believe that the only team that will pose a little threat to the team is Poland and they are set to face them on the 30th of November, 2022. Their first two fixtures are Saudi Arabia and Mexico respectively and while both teams are formidable opponents, fans believe they don't have much enough to triumph over the Argentina side who are on a great run.

What Are Argentina's Chances Of Lifting the Gold?

It is pretty clear that Argentina has a significantly great chance of making it to the knockout stages but what about the matches after? Most bookies rank Argentina, France, and Brazil among the top three, and Argentina's odds averages around +500 with most of them. While some rank them as the third favorites, some others place them as the second — but it is clear that they are highly rated in the tournament.

Bookies don't carelessly rate teams that high so it is pretty obvious that they know their game. With their record of 36 games unbeaten since 2019, they are only behind Italy which holds the record of 37 games unbeaten—one which they held from 2018 to 2021.

Argentina just recently surpassed Brazil and Spain who had an equal record of 35 games unbeaten. Brazil's record-holding run was from 1993 to 1996 while Spain's was from 2007 to 2009. Italy appears again in fifth place with their 30 games unbeaten record from 1935 to 1939. And looking at the Albiceleste's upcoming fixtures, several experts and pundits predict that they will break Italy's record by a couple of games.

What Player Has Been Instrumental For Argentina?

Lionel Messi is undoubtedly the most instrumental player on the team. The

PSG man

has been outstanding for club and country in the 2022/23 season. He also earned his spot as the captain of the team, showing outstanding leadership skills.

Messi has seven Ballon d'Or to his name and the record books make it obvious that the 35-year-old has won arguably all individual and team trophies in modern football. The only major trophy that is missing from his resume is the FIFA World Cup and many believe that lifting the tournament would seal him as the greatest of all time in football history.

Apart from the PSG man, Argentina's squad is also fortified with the likes of Julian Alvarez, Laurato Martinez, Angel Di Maria, and several other formidable players in front. And they also have the likes of Lisandro Martinez and Christian Romero—two players that have shown their quality in the English Premier League this season.

Emiliano Martinez in goal is also another thing that fans and spectators look forward to; the 30-year-old goalkeeper was instrumental in their Copa America win in 2021. Overall, we expect a show from the whole Argentina squad as most players are in top form right now.
