Copa America hosts Argentina will be hoping their trinity of attackers are in top form as they face Bolivia in the opening match of the tournament.
Football betting fans with long memories will remember that the last time the two sides met, in a 2009 World Cup qualifier, unfancied Bolivia served up a shock 6-1 rout.
However, that was during an experimental phase for former manager Diego Maradona and new head coach Sergio Batista will set his side up to exact revenge over La Verde.
Argentina are odds-on favourites to secure a win and this is largely down to the attacking talent within the squad.
In Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain and Barcelona ace Lionel Messi, la Albiceleste boast three of the most sought-after attackers in world football.
Such talents see Argentina priced at 1/10 to win this tie, with the draw offered at odds of 7/1 and Bolivia priced as 20/1 outsiders.
Of the three front men, Messi is expected to get the tournament up and running by scoring the first goal of the game, with bwin pricing the Barca man at 2/1.
Tevez is available at 7/2 to score the game’s first goal, while odds of 3/1 can be had on Higuain achieving the feat.
By way of contrast, Bolivia’s front players are seen as less likely to be a goal threat, with Juan Carlos Arce and Marcelo Moreno identified as the most likely to penetrate the Argentine defence.
Both players are priced at 12/1 to stun the home crowd by scoring first and putting the 1963 South American champions in the driving seat.
While Bolivia stunned the football world with their heroic effort last time out, the previous three encounters saw Argentina victorious on all occasions.
As such, fans could be tempted to increase the returns available on a home win by looking at bwin’s handicap betting market.
Backing Messi and co to overturn a 2-0 deficit is priced at evens, while the draw is then at odds of 29/10 and Bolivia become a 9/5 shot for the win.
With revenge on their mind and the desire to please the home fans, Argentina are likely to put on a display of attractive, attacking football and this could see some of the more sensible football bets placed on a comprehensive victory for Batista’s men.
Opting for a 3-0 win, which has been the result in two of the last four matches between the sides, is priced at 21/4, offering new customers returns of £165.25 when using their free £25 first bet.
