Messi to match Neymar at 19/5

Lionel Messi finally enters the World Cup stage on Sunday evening as Argentina - one of the tournament favourites - face Bosnia & Herzegovina in Group F.

Messi is expected to light up the tournament despite having a frustrating season at club level with Barcelona. He will look to rise above that just as his club-mate Neymar did with Brazil in the opening match of the tournament against Croatia.

If you fancy Messi to match Neymar's exploits by scoring at least twice in his opening match, you can get odds of 19/5 from William Hill on him doing exactly that.

A Messi to score/Argentina to win double is priced at 11/10, while if you fancy a shock double, try Edin Dzeko to score/Bosnia & Herzegovina to win at a mighty 12/1.
