A two year-old octopus Paul, the so-called octopus oracle predicts Germany's victory in their 2010 World Cup quarter-final soccer match against Argentina by choosing a mussel, from a glass box with the German flag instead of a glass box with the Argentinian flag, at the Sea Life Aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen June 29, 2010. Paul has so far rightly predicted Germany's first and second round victories over Ghana, Australia and England plus Germany's defeat against Serbia.

Argentina star Lionel Messi is expected to play against Germany despite missing training on Thursday with a cold.
Walter Samuel has recovered from a thigh problem but is not expected to displace Nicolas Burdisso or Martin Demichelis at centre-back.
Germany’s counter-attacking prowess could persuade coach Diego Maradona to replace winger Angel Di Maria with the more defensive-minded Jonas Gutierrez.
Maradona must also choose between Maxi Rodriguez and veteran Juan Veron.
Germany will assess Lukas Podolski, who is nursing a muscular problem.
Playmaker Mesut Ozil is expected to start despite skipping training on Thursday due to fatigue.
Striker Cacau is still suffering from a strained abdominal muscle, and is unlikely to be involved.
One booking from suspension: Bolatti, Heinze, Mascherano (Argentina); Friedrich, Khedira, Lahm, Ozil, Muller, Schweinsteiger (Germany). (BBC Sport)

Two old World Cup enemies come face to face in Cape Town with Diego Maradona’s Argentine side taking on Joachim Low’s German contingent in what is a repeat of so many previous high profile encounters. These two sides bet in both the 1986 and 1990 finals with both sides registering a crucial win a piece. It would take a brave man to predict who will survive triumphant from this battle.
