THE SKINNY: The defending champion Argentines are the heavy favourites, having won the title on five previous occasions. The Czech Republic, on the other hand, has not won a FIFA title since the country gained its independence.

PREVIOUS MEETING: The two teams battled to a 0-0 tie during the opening day of competition.

ARGENTINA WINS IF: It lets its talent take over and doesn't make any silly mistakes. It is the most skilled team in the tournament, leading in goals (14) and goals allowed (1). Overconfidence could be an issue.

CZECH REPUBLIC WINS IF:

It can withstand what is expected to be an early flurry from the Argentines.While South American teams are noted for their flair, European sides are known to be technically sound and disciplined. The Czechs will have to be just that if they want to pull this one out.

TACTICS: The Argentines are on record as saying they will push the ball upfield as much as possibe in order to create offence. The Czechs plan on playing a conservative game, attempting to avoid any odd-man rushes.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON: Argentine striker Sergio Aguero -- the talent forward is tied for the tournament lead in goals with five. Czech Republic striker Martin Fenin -- judging by the first meeting between the teams, scoring opportunities will be few and far between for the Czechs. It will be up to Fenin to convert his chances.
