Argentina will play in their eleventh world cup quarterfinal tonight, while the Netherlands will play in their seventh. In their last eight world cup appearances, the Netherlands made it to the final three times. The last time, Germany won the final, while Lionel Messi’s squad was eliminated in the Round of 16. They once more had a surprising FIFA World Cup 2022 opening match, losing 1-2 to Saudi Arabia. On the other hand, Louis van Gaal’s squad is yet to lose in the competition.

The Albiceleste are the only side in the world to have Lionel Messi, the greatest player to ever play the game of football. Since the Netherlands will be particularly wary of Messi, Argentina will need to play well as a team – without depending just on him. Fortunately, the South American club has already scored twice in the competition thanks to players like Julian Alvarez.
Argentina and Lionel Messi still have three chances to win the World Cup, but their match against the Netherlands will be their toughest yet. The two teams’ quarterfinal encounter on Friday at the Lusail Stadium promises to be interesting because of their World Cup histories.
They had previously participated in two knockout games: the final of the 1978 World Cup, which saw Argentina win the tournament for the first time, and the quarterfinal of 1998, which is most remembered for Dennis Bergkamp’s stunning winning goal. Eight years ago, they fought in the semifinals, a scoreless match that Argentina finally won on penalties.

Dutch defenders Nathan Ake and Jurrien Timber will be essential in stopping Lionel Messi. With a solid performance in the Round of 16, the Netherlands overcame the USA 3-1 to move to the round of eight. The Oranje advanced to the quarterfinals for the third consecutive year after teaching their American opponents a lesson in ruthlessness. They will need to score a lot of goals to beat Argentina in the semifinals. The Netherlands are looking well going forward thanks to Cody Gakpo, who has three goals in this World Cup, and Memphis Depay, who finished a lovely play against the USA in the round of 16.
While also presenting problems for Scaloni’s team, the Netherlands will be focusing on preventing Messi in a game that pits the little forward against Virgil van Dijk, the Netherlands’ huge captain and one of the best center-backs in the world. The return to fitness of clever striker Memphis Depay and forward Cody Gakpo, who has three goals in Qatar, have improved Van Gaal’s squad.

- Jurriën Timber

- Denzel Dumfries
- Marten de Roon

Argentina Vs Netherlands 2022 World Cup Prediction
- Both of these clubs seem to be capable of outperforming their competition results thus far. After having six days off, they should both feel refreshed coming into the quarterfinal showdown. Because Messi looked to be playing at his decisive best in the second half against Australia, having a player of his quality on the field may make the difference in what should be a competitive game.
- Prediction: Netherlands 1-2 Argentina
