Final: Germany v Argentina
Today, 3:00 PM Eastern • Final •Estádio Maracanã, Rio de Janeiro
This is what it all comes down to, what we’ve spent the last month enjoying is all for. Germany and Argentina have worked hard to get here even though they’ve seemingly gotten here by two similar but different paths.
Germany has absolutely shined at moments in this tournament, and has looked unstoppable, especially in their 7-1 dismantling of Brazil. Argentina on the other hand has won all of their matches by just 1 goal each. That means nothing though, as all that you need to do at the World Cup is win, there aren’t any bonus points for winning games by 6 goals.
Germany is an incredibly strong and stacked team, and there probably isn’t a better overall team in the tournament. Argentina isn’t a second rate squad by any means though. They’ve got enough quality to match Germany, and the Argentine attack is probably better than any attack any national or club side could put together (especially if Di Maria is healthy), we just haven’t seen them put everything together.
I think today is the day we see Argentina break out, not that they’re going to score 7 or anything, but I think they’ll surprise people and pull off the win.
Prediction: Argentina 3-1 Germany
