Argentina vs Samoa Betting Tips Rugby World Cup 2023
The Argentineans are coming to the Rugby World Cup 2023 after finishing fourth in the Rugby Championship in which New Zealand won the title once again. The Pumas obtained the first victory in history in Kiwi lands after beating the black team by a narrow 25-18. To talk about the Samoans and their recent history, they have just been crowned champions of the Pacific Nations Cup 2022, beating rivals such as Australian Barbarians, Fiji and Tonga. They finished the series of matches with 14 points, two more than their immediate pursuers, the Kangaroos.
How The Pumas and Samoa play and statistics
Samoa is an island team that has always stood out for its physicality and forcefulness in contact, either with or without the ball. It is worth mentioning the inclusion of three former All Blacks: Charlie Faumuina (49 caps and 2015 World Cup champion), Steven Luatua (15 caps) and Lima Sopoaga (17 caps).
The Pumas, with Australian Cheika at the helm, have taken on a more tenacious character and where they fight to the end. The team competes on equal terms with everyone and has good forwards and backs that make the difference such as Santiago Carreras or Juan Cruz Mallía. One of the strengths of the team is the line out throw in the hands of the captain, Julián Montoya.

Prediction Argentina vs Samoa Rugby World Cup 2023
The record favors the number 12 in the world ranking, however, Argentina vs Samoa is far from a foregone conclusion. Michael Cheika’s men are obliged to win this match in order to continue their progress in the Rugby World Cup 2023. The men in blue and white have more strength in all their lines than the difficult opponent in blue. It is clear that it will cost, perhaps, more than the account, but the South American team will overcome the adversities.
Prediction: Argentina 31-19 Samoa. Los Pumas win.
