After their decisive 2-0 victory over Poland in the last game of the group stage, Argentina secured the top spot in Group C. This means that they have avoided playing the French, who were winners of Group D and are instead rewarded with facing the second place team, Australia.

The Socceroos are making their second appearance in the knockout stage of the competition after stunning Denmark with a solid 1-0 performance.

Very much not an afterthought in this World Cup, the Australians are in it to win it, although Argentina might be a bite too big for them to swallow. Argentina, on the other hand, are the firm favorites, and one of the top picks to win it all, but have shown themselves to be vulnerable after giving up a humiliating 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia.

The winner of the match will go on to face the winner of the Netherlands vs USA game.
