2014 World Cup Semifinal: Netherlands vs. Argentina
July 09, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Wednesday, Netherlands will play Argentina in the second semifinal match at the 2014 World Cup. Germany already qualified for the 2014 World Cup Final after a 7-1 victory over host nation Brazil.

Netherlands and Argentina last met in the 1978 World Cup Finals. Argentina was World Cup champion 36 years ago and has reached the semifinals for the fourth time in their campaign.

The Dutch advanced in the finals in 1974, 1978 and 2010 but all they got were bitter losses. Most fans did not expect Netherlands to get very far in the World Cup. But things have change after a series of convincing victories in the Round of 16 and quarterfinal.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Argentina as the favorite to beat Netherlands and booked the last spot for the 2014 World Cup Final on Wednesday.
