Not sure who will win tbh. I don't think either team has been that fluid but both have some great match winners.

An absolute World Cup classic. From the Dutch side, many hold a chip on their shoulder after the controversial 1978 final.


Argentina are favourites but the Dutch are generally quite confident of setting a few scores and setting up the dream-final with the old enemy Germany.

2 very different sides, Argentina often lacking a clear system and heavily over-reliant on Messi while Holland flexible and system orientated under Van Gaal with moments from Robben the spark.

Prediction: 2-1 Netherlands .

The higher the odds, the more money you get.

Only seen one Argentina match and they were poor against Iran.

The Netherlands have been ok. However, they look too reliant on Robben.

I expect Argentina to control large parts of the game and for the Netherlands to take their chance on the break. Expect it to be low scoring with Di Maria out and an unfit Aguero.

I think Leo will be the difference between the two sides, and Robben won't show up.

I see Netherlands winning. It's probably going to be nip and tuck though. Both sides look pretty poor if I'm being honest.

They describe your ratio of profit to bet. So at 2/1 bet £1 and win £2(get £3 back). At below 1/1 your profit becomes less than your stake.

Oh, so if it was 500/1 that would be something really unlikely since if you bet one pound you'll get 500 back?

They got to the semi's, couldn't have been that poor?

500/1 is an extremely outside shot, think England to win 3 world cups in a row(or even 1 perhaps!)

1/1 is basically a coin flip, and generally straying above 6/4 is considered quite risky.

2/1 means for every one pound you put, you get 2 pounds back.
