Argentina play Iran in their second Group F match at Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte and will be widely expected to pick up an easy three points.
The two-time World Champions topped the South American qualifying group and have world class personnel at their disposal, while Iran just don't look equipped to deal with their attacking prowess. This is the first ever meeting between these nations on a football pitch and Iran will be hoping to keep the scoreline at a respectable level.
Iran's best hope of a goal could be from a set-piece situation and with that in mind towering centre-back Maziar Zare could be a good shout to get on the scoresheet in this match. Argentina have an envious amount of attacking talent and any one of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero or Gonzalo Higuain will be hoping to get on the scoresheet to boost their tally against one of the minnows of the tournament.
