Last World Cup for Messi. We predict the exploits of the Argentinean
The Argentine will leave the national team without a world title.
Unfortunately for many, the career of the winner of seven Golden Balls is gradually coming to an end. Not so long ago, he announced the end of his international career at the end of the World Cup in Qatar. Let’s try to predict how the last World Cup will turn out for the idol of millions.
The best predictions for the World Cup.
Argentina national team ahead of the 2022 World Cup
The recent friendly match with the United Arab Emirates showed that Albiceleste was well prepared for the World Cup in Qatar. She scored a major victory with a score of 5:0. Thus, the wards of Lionel Scaloni extended their unbeaten streak in all tournaments to 36 matches. There was one step left to the record set by the Italians.
Some of the Argentinian goals against the UAE – including Lionel Messi’s goal – turned out to be very beautiful. However, there were some worrying moments as well. There was an episode when the 35-year-old striker collided with an opponent and could not get up for several minutes. Fortunately, there were no injuries. We hope there won’t be any in the future.
Germany – Japan. Germans in pardon mode
The competition at the World Cup will be very serious. It is unlikely that Lionel Messi will be able to write down the victory at the World Cup in his huge list of achievements. Still, Brazil and France are very strong and are not going to play the fool. However, the Argentines can count on at least the semi-finals. You can bet that Argentina will reach the 1/2 finals of the 2022 World Cup for odds of 2.10.
Can Messi beat Neymar and Ronaldo?
If you pay attention to the 2022 World Cup qualifying statistics, then Neymar’s advantage is obvious. The Brazilian spent five matches less, but chalked up twice as many effective actions. This season, the Argentine has significantly improved and scored as many as 40 points in the “goal + pass” system in 27 matches in all competitions.
Klinsman named the two main favorites for the World Cup.
However, Neymar has accumulated not much less over the same period – 35 points. Therefore, it is difficult to predict whether Messi will score more than a partner in the Parisian club. In addition, yellow-green now look preferable to “albiceleste”. They have a better composition of the line-up – a better defensive line and midfield, which unties the hands of the attackers.
But Messi will certainly leave out of work Cristiano Ronaldo. The rivalry of famous football players has been going on for more than 15 years. However, alas, it is rapidly fading away. The leader of the Portuguese national team this season demonstrates far from his best football. Scandals happen much more often than goals.
Which European team will be the best at the 2022 World Cup? There is an obvious candidate
In 22 matches in all competitions, Ronaldo has provided only three assists and scored five goals. He sent two goals against Switzerland in the match of the 2nd round of the League of Nations, two – to Sheriff in the Europa League and one located near the relegation zone to Everton in the Premier League. You can bet that Messi will score more than Cristiano at the 2022 World Cup with odds of 2.00.
Generosity is the sign of kings
Messi is unlikely to score more than Kylian Mbappe. The Frenchman is currently PSG’s top scorer. For 20 matches in all official tournaments at the club level, he scored as many as 19 goals, but gave only five assists during this period. The Argentinean for the same period chalked up 14 assists.
Of course, the attackers have different functions and roles in the team, but in terms of assisting Messi, Mbappe is many times better. The Frenchman often does not share the ball with partners when going “two to one”, this has repeatedly led to conflicts. Leo is more generous in this regard. You can bet that he will make more assists with a coefficient of 2.55.
Bet 1: Lionel Messi will score more than Cristiano Ronaldo at odds of 2.00.
Bet 2: Lionel Messi has more assists than Mbappe at 2.55.
Express with a coefficient of 8.45.
Messi returned to training with Argentina’s general group.
Senegal coach: Mane is our leader, it’s a big loss.
Kane: I hope I can repeat Rooney’s record.
