On a friendly match.

When it comes to goals, they counted with 3 goals scored and 5 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.7 goals per match.

The Argentinian manager Scaloni won’t be able to count with some well renown players, such as Messi, but Argentina can’t complain about lack of players, especially on the offensive chapter.
Argentina vs Iraq – Betting Tip and Prediction:
That’s precisely where I think there is value on an encounter where the South-Americans are highly favoured and have their odds crushed.
Argentina’s attacking arsenal doesn’t need any descriptions, knowing that they can fulfil the “Over” line by themselves.
Still, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Iraq helped out on that task, taking into consideration the defensive fragilities that are usual on this Argentina, and also because they’ve scored in 8 of the last 10 matches they’ve played.
