Argentina v Holland Free Bets, odds, and World Cup offers – Get 3/1 Argentina to win

Latest Argentina v Holland odds and World Cup free bets offers released for the second semi final, with Germany waiting for the victor.

The Netherlands take on Argentina in the second of the World Cup semi-finals, in another tough to predict match.

The Dutch needed spot kicks to overcome Costa Rica in the quarter-final, despite dominating the majority of the match.

Wesley Sneijder twice hit the woodwork, whilst a deflected Robin Van Persie effort hit the post in the last minute of normal time.

The closest Costa Rica came to a breakthrough was an effort from substitute Marco Urena in extra-time.

Louis Van Gaal brought Tim Krul on for the penalty shoot-out and the Newcastle keeper saved two spot kicks to send the Dutch through.

Argentina won their fifth match at the World Cup, again by a one goal margin, as they reached their first semi-final since 1990.

Gonzalo Higuain’s early volley was the difference in their quarter-final fixture with Belgium, after an Angel Di Maria pass was deflected into his path.

The Napoli forward missed the best chance to double their lead, volleying against the woodwork early in the second period.

Belgium struggled to create a real chance of note, with Romelu Lukaku opting to pass when in a good position to shoot.

The win came at a cost for Argentina, as Di Maria went off injured, ruling him out of the semi-final with Holland.

Holland and Argentina have met four times in the World Cup, with the Dutch winning twice, including the most recent.

Argentina won the biggest fixture though, an extra-time 3-1 victory in the 1978 World Cup, with Mario Kempes scoring twice.

Team news
Holland are likely to keep the same starting XI to the one that edged past Costa Rica on Saturday.

Jermaine Lens will be hoping to start ahead of Memphis Depay, although the latter looks set to keep his place.

Dirk Kuyt has done surprisingly well from wing back and the former Liverpool man will again start.

Argentina will welcome back Sergio Aguero, after he missed the last two matches through injury.

Di Maria has been ruled out, with Benfica midfielder Enzo Perez the favourite to come in.

Fernando Gago and Federico Fernandez had started the majority of matches at the tournament, however both were left out of the quarter-final.

Holland (3-4-2-1): Cillessen, de Vrij, Martins Indi, Vlaar, Kuyt, Wijnaldum, Sneijder, Blind, Robben, Depay, Van Persie
Argentina (4-3-3): Romero, Zabaleta, Garay, Demichelis, Rojo, Mascherano, Biglia, Perez, Aguero, Messi, Higuain
