It’s fair to say that Scotland haven’t disgraced themselves in their first ever Women’s World Cup campaign and they have certainly proven themselves to be a tough nut to crack, however they just couldn’t cut it with narrow defeats coming in their opening two group meetings with England (2-1) and Japan (2-1). They will be in for a similarly tough test when they lock horns with Argentina tonight and the Scots will be eager to end their campaign on a positive note.
Nevertheless defensive frailties have been of concern and Shelley Kerr will need to address these issues should she wish to steer her charges to victory this evening. Indeed despite confidence remaining high in the Scotland camp following a five-game unbeaten run prior to the World Cup, we don’t envisage them managing three points in this clash with Argentina.

Argentina remain in with a chance of making it through to the knockout stages of the competition although they would need Japan to lose against England in the other group match tonight in order for them to progress. As things stand, Argentina will likely be heading home having picked up just a single point courtesy of a goal-less draw with Japan and a 1-0 defeat to England.
The South Americans have shown signs of promise however and with just a single goal conceded thus far in the tournament, we envisage them holding firm against the Scots and edging their way to three points by the smallest of margins, Paddy Power Bookmakers going 5/1 on Argentina to win.
