No helping hand needed for Diego's boys

Diego Maradona takes charge of Argentina for the first time as they face Scotland at Hampden Park on Wednesday.

Argentina currently lie third in the South American qualifying standings for 2010 World Cup. However the start to the qualifying campaign has not been good enough and after an embarassing defeat to Chile, coach Alfio Basile resigned.

Basile was often unable to galvanise a team full of talent so Argentina have turned to their World Cup winning national hero, Maradona, to help improve things.

The football legend has an array of talents at his disposal and his Argentine side should dispatch of Scotland easily.

Maradona is able to call on such talents as Man Utd's Carlos Tevez and Liverpool's Javier Mascherano.

Argentina are 4/7 favourites for the victory with the draw available at 13/5 and the home win is a 11/2 shot.

Scotland are without a win in their last four matches at Hampden and surely this will be extended to five.

A 2-0 victory to Argentina at 9/2 looks a good prospect. As does the 6/4 about Sergio Aguero to score.

The Atletico Madrid attacker already has five international goals to his name and should be backed to add to that tally against the Tartan Army.
