It would have been a catastrophic embarrassment for Argentina to miss qualifying for the World Cup. It would be an epic failure if such an amiable side blessed with some of the most audacious frontline in the world would have missed the summer showpiece in Russia.
However, Lionel Messi stepped into the savior shoes for Argentina and savaged qualification for them by means of a hattrick in the last match. Argentina would be heading to face Spain in an international friendly at the new Wanda Metropolitano as the two sides hope to warm up ahead of the summer World Cup.
Lionel Messi particularly is in good form. He is scoring with an addictive frenzy at Barcelona. He was the major inspiration in Barcelona’s triumph over Chelsea in the Champions League. Being the highest goal scorer this season in the La Liga you can understand that the Argentine maestro has goals stuffed up in his boots.
While Messi missed the match against Italy, he has shaken off the injury that kept him off the victory over Italy and he is set to lead the line. Do you think the Spanish defence of Sergio Ramos, Pique and the rest would be able to keep Messi off from scoring? Do you think Messi will score the first goal in this match?
Yes and 9/2 is yours from BetSafe for Messi to score the first goal in the match. The offer is open to both old and new customers. All you have to do is place a bet on the match for Messi to score the first goal and the odds are yours.
