Argentina and Belgium have both enjoyed steady, if unspectacular progress through the 2014 World Cup. The sides have each won all four games, while a winning margin of one goal for every game implies that their attacking talent has not quite been firing on all cylinders.
On Saturday, however, all could change. The teams coached by Alejandro Sabella and Marc Wilmots promise an open game full of excitement and goals, as they play for a place in the semi-finals.
The Albiceleste prevailed in the quarter-finals 28 years ago thanks to two incredible goals from Diego Maradona. Lionel Messi would love to repeat that feat against Belgian goalkeeping nemesis Thibaut Courtois.
That clash is just one of several mouthwatering personal duels that could mark the upcoming quarter-final encounter.
