Argentina vs Portugal: FIFA World Cup 2022 Prediction
Argentina is one of the favorites to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup and Portugal has been one of the European footballing heavyweights for the last few years. Although Portugal had a hard time qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, it does not mean that they are any less of a threat in this tournament.
The Cristiano Ronaldo-led side is powered by one of the strongest squads in the world and with the correct motivation, they can do wonders.
Argentina, on the other hand, looks unstoppable. Manager Lionel Scaloni has turned this side into a well-oiled machine and they are unbeaten for the last 32 matches which is unimaginable. And of course, they have a little magic in their captain Lionel Messi.
We thus think that the La Albiceleste will register a win over Portugal if the two sides do happen to meet in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
