Everything has changed atop the bwin World Cup Bloggers’ League and, having been usurped by some spectacular punts form Soccerlens.com and EmpireOfTheKop.com, the boys in black and gold are wading in to Argentina v The Netherlands.
Soccerlens lead the panting peloton with but three opportunities to address the situation remaining, so getting heavily involved in the second semi-final is a necessity.
For in-house punters’ periodical news.bwin.com/en/ that means unloading on the fixture in service of the hunch that it will be a low-scoring affair at odds with last night’s net-bulging fiesta.
The eight reasons referred to in the headline to this update each represent a clean sheet kept by the Argentina defence in their last ten internationals and they’re fancied to negate the Dutch, along with themselves, until the half-time whistle.
Louis van Gaal’s men haven’t notched more than a single strike before the interval in their last ten games, failing to bag a first-half goal in five of those, including their last three outings.
Our chosen wager is the 27/20 about a half-time correct score of 0-0, one that would have copped in three of the four knockout ties at the World Cup involving our adversaries.
