Argentina will book their place in the knockout phase of the 2014 FIFA World Cup if they claim maximum points against Iran in Belo Horizonte.

Alejandro Sabella’s side will start the game as huge favourites with the bookmakers.

However, they have never beaten Iran. The one previous meeting between the two sides ended in a 1-1 draw in 1977.

Argentina began their World Cup campaign with a 2-1 victory over Bosnia & Herzegovina on Sunday, hours before Iran and Nigeria bored each other to a 0-0 draw.

Lionel Messi was on target in Argentina’s win over Bosnia. However, the Barcelona legend has only scored two World Cup goals in his career, despite this being his third appearance at the finals.

Messi is expected to start tonight and he will surely fancy his chances of adding to his modest World Cup tally, although Iran have conceded just once in their last five games – against Belarus, Montenegro, Angola, Trinidad & Tobago and Nigeria.
