In fact, the two national teams have already faced each other five times in the course of their World Cup history. It has already happened in 1974 (group stage), in 1998 (quarter-finals), in 2006 (group stage), in 2014 (semi-finals) and above all in 1978, when the Albiceleste won 3-1 after extra time, in the final .
The Netherlands got this far after winning Group A and then beating the USA in the 1/8 finals (3-1 with goals from Depay, Blind and Dumfries). More articulate is the path of Argentina, which, after starting with a historic defeat against Saudi Arabia, had to beat Mexico and Poland to win Group C, before eliminating Australia in the 1/8 finals (2-1 with the goals of Messi and Alvarez).
For this match, Van Gaal will design the oranges with 3-4-1-2, in which in front of Noppert in goal, Timber, Van Dijk and Aké will complete the defensive package, with De Ligt still on the bench.

Dumfries and Blind will play from the wings, with De Jong and De Roon in midfield, while Klaassen will play as a “playmaker” in support of Cakpo and Depay. Bergwjin’s hypothesis remains alive from the first minute.
Scaloni will rely on the 4-3-3, in which in front of Martinez in goal, Molina and Tagliafico will be positioned from the right and left sides, relegating Montiel and Acuna to the bench. Romero will be at the heart of the defense alongside Otamendi.
The triple midfield with the recovered De Pauli, together with Enzo Fernandez and Mac Allister, while the attacking trio will see the recovered Di Maria again, with Messi and Julian Alvarez. Paredes remains the first alternative to the former Udinese player and to “Fideo”.
Here are the possible formations:

NETHERLANDS (3-4-1-2): Noppert; Timber, Van Dijk, Aké; Dumfries, F. De Jong, De Roon, Blind; Klaassen;
Come on, Depay.
ARGENTINA (4-3-3): E. Martinez; Molina, Romero, Otamendi, Acuna; De Paul, E. Fernandez, Mac Allister; Di
Maria, Messi, Alvarez.
