Argentina vs Netherlands: 2022 FIFA World Cup | Quarter-final

When Louis van Gaal’s team plays Argentina in the FIFA World Cup quarterfinals on Friday, Netherlands defender Timber will have the difficult chore of attempting to contain perhaps the best footballer in the world.

Messi, who scored three goals for Argentina in Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022, put on a masterful performance as the Albiceleste defeated Australia 2-1 on Saturday. One of the main questions in the Opta Challenge, below, is whether Messi will score once more.

Friday’s highly anticipated quarterfinal between Argentina and the Netherlands in Qatar is also a rematch of some of the best games, continuing Lionel Messi’s quest for his first World Cup.

Nine times have passed between the Netherlands and Argentina, with four victories, one defeat, and three draws. Five of those occurred during the FIFA World Cup: the Argentines defeated the Netherlands 3-1 in the 1978 championship match after the Dutch defeated them 4-0 in the second group stage in 1974.

Prior to two goalless draws in the 2006 group stage and their most recent meeting in the 2014 semi-finals, which the Argentines ultimately won on penalties, the Dutch won 2-1 in the 1998 quarter-finals.
