Argentina (2-0) was victorious after their first match win against the Ivory Coast 2-1, their second match of the Olympics was against Australia in which they won 1-0. Ezequiel Lavezzi ended a well-worked move to score a 78th-minute goal to give Argentina six points from two games. The Australians were all over Lionel Messi every time he had the ball, which can be a good thing as it opens up more turf for other strikers. Regardless of defenders covering Messi he still managed three quality chances at a goal. After the match the Aussie Coach stated "It's going to take some team to stop them. Their movement off the ball is unbelievable, their technique is incredible and that's why I'm so proud of my boys. I thought we did a very good job on Messi today." Argentina are the 2004 Olympic Soccer gold medal winners and Olympic Soccer Betting Odds at BetUS.com has Argentina as 2/1 odds to win gold.
Serbia (1-1) pulled out a surprise 1-1 draw against Australia in their opening match only to lose to the Ivory Coast 2-4. Slobodan Rajkovic flashed a bullet header into the net against the Aussies for a draw, "There are three games to play, and to get one point is not so bad." The Serbs team is made up of a lot of European players and the heat and humidity have played a big factor in their last two matches. Against the Ivory Coast, the African nation got off to a quick start after a third minute goal set the pace, but the Serbs quickly replied with a 15th minute goal. Unfortunately an own goal in the 24th minute gave the Ivory Coast a 2-1 lead going into half time. After half time it was all Coast, as two late goals to the Serbs one goal ended the match at 4-2.
