They've not been at their free flowing best, but Argentina's defensive nous has seen them through to the final. Regular Argentinian football columnist Ed Malyon assesses the mood in the camp and picks out his best bets for Sunday night...

"With just one goal conceded all tournament in the first half of games and none in the knockout stage, you wonder if Sabella has finally got his back four right. Backing the half-time draw at [2.05] is tempting with it likely to be an opening period where both sides are petrified to fall behind."
