Argentina vs Irak Betting Tips
Argentina and Iraq will face each other in a friendly match. The meeting will be played next Thursday October 11 (20:00 Spanish time) at the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in Saudi Arabia where we will have the opportunity to witness what will be the third meeting of Scaloni in front of the national team.
After a disappointing World Cup in the summer, everything has changed for Argentina. Jorge Sampaoli left his role as coach after being left out in the second round against France, after a disappointing performance in the group stage, which saw them draw with Iceland, lose to Croatia and beat Nigeria. Former international Lionel Scaloni assumed the position of interim coach, with the assistance of Argentines Pablo Aimar and Walter Samuel. In addition, it seems that a generation of Argentine players have left the organization, defenders such as Marcos Rojo, the attacking forces of Angel Di Maria, Ever Banega, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero and, most crucially, Lionel Messi. In their two matches after the World Cup, Argentina defeated Guatemala 3-0, with goals from newcomers Lautaro Martinez, Giovanni Simeone and Giovani Lo Celso
Ranked 89th in the world, Iraq has had a decent 2018 in terms of results. They have lost twice in eight games. Apart from that, Iraq has looked like a solid team, defeating a Saudi team 4-1 that went to the World Cup in the summer, as well as a 3-0 victory in Palestine. Now we will see how it unfolds first of all an Argentina that is full generational change and seems to have recovered its best face from the hand of Scaroni.

We are facing an unprecedented match since these two teams have crossed us previously neither in an official match nor friendly.
According to the sports betting houses, Argentina is clearly the favorite team to get the victory in that match. We think that those of Scaloni should not have many problems in adding the victory because at the moment it is a much more powerful selection than Iraq and with the arrival of the new selector we have been able to see a great improvement in the defensive section. We say this because the albiceleste has not yet fitted with Scaloni as coach, confirming that he has put a lot of emphasis on being solid in defense and appreciating the spaces in attack with fast jugadroes and lots of movement. Therefore, our bet will be aimed at the Argentine market without matching.
