Argentina meet Bosnia and Herzegovina in the opening Group F game at Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro and it could well be these sides occupying the top two positions in the table come the end of the group phase.
Two time World Champions Argentina will be looking to get off to a good start and looked in good shape when beating Bosnia and Herzegovina 2-0 in a friendly last November. The sides have only met twice with Argentina victorious on both occasions, but this is the first ever competetive fixture between these nations.
Argentina have a depth of talent throughout their squad with Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero all leading candidates for goalscorer bets, but they will have to also keep Edin Dzeko and Vedad Ibisevic quiet to succeed and both of those players look capable of finding the net on the back of their goal-scoring exploits during qualification for the 2014 World Cup.
