    I think if Argentinia does not find some extra 50% they'll have a really hard time. Germanys weakness, counters could he their chance, but not if they play like yesterday. They weren't really trying to play quickly through midfield and break the dutch defense with speed. Messi will be always marked. He'll have two players standing on his feet.

    The question will be how the argentinian defense will perform. Yesterday they weren't facing the quick and direct play Germany has shown against Brazil (also before the first goals).

    The crowd will probably be on Germanys' side as well. I don't know if that will effect any of the players, but we'll see.

    In the end Germany are the big favourite for me.

    Sorry Germany. Messi is taking the trophy where it belongs.

    Can we stop lumping everyone together right there ? Random remarks by germans equalling the standard of the BILD comment section anywhere on the interwebz aren't representative of a country. They merely represent the bottom of the barrel.

    So would not be too happy if Germany wins it. Want to see Leo lift the trophy.
    If you don't like Löw you better hope for a germany win because dis guy won't go anywhere if he doesn't take a trophy. Another 4 years with dis guy, don't know if I could stomach that tbh.

    Well, one thing that goes in Argentina favor is Germany's style of play. Correction, two. They do have the best player on the planet in their ranks.

    Argentina won 3-1 last time they met with Germany.

    Come on, Messi!

    Are you sure about that?

    I hope so. One can hope, right ?

    Argentina didn't play with urgency throughout the entire tournament and yesterdays match was the epitome of it. Quite the contrary actually, they play it safe out of a solid organization.

    1. Argentina defense performed admirably throughout the entire tournament. The organization is rock solid and nice too watch as well, if you're into that sorta thing. If there was no quick play by Holland, it's because it was suffocated on the spot.

    2. The quick and direct play of Germany met a defensive organization in Brazil that resembled headless chickens, the shape of their defensive formation was abysmal. Drawing conclusions from that match is about as valid as drawing conclusions from the Portugal match.

    Don't let the hype fool you, the match will be balanced. And unless somehow Germany score early and forces Argentina to abandon their shape, this might be a really long night.

    Can only hope Messi finds his form and shows people that a once in lifetime player like he is can defeat the systematic machine Germans have created. Then I want them to over analyze where they went wrong doing so.

    Hero football is dead for quite some time now.

    Why do you fear that? The last time he tried to man mark a player out of the game was in 2012, Kroos vs Pirlo You can be sure that if he tries that, he'll choose the least suitable player to do it.

    He'll get Neuer to mark Messi

    Will Di Maria play?? I think that should be the biggest question here.

    Di Maria should play only if he's 100% match fit.

    Di Maria should come on as a substitute, even if he is not 100% fit. He will make a great impact in later stages of the match with Germany tired like hell. Enzo Perez is playing nice, he should start.
