Russia vs. Argentina (22:00 BST)

Can Argentina beat Russia and reach the Futsal Grand Prix final? (credit: Ryu Voelkel)
Russia take on Argentina in today's first semi-final at the 2011 Futsal Grand Prix in Brazil.

Argentina came out on top in Thursday's South American classic at the 7th Futsal Grand Prix, beating Paraguay 7-3 to advance to the final four.

It was an impressive second half performance by the Argentines after a slow start and Santiago Basile, who scored four goals during the game, admitted afterwards: "In the first half, we didn’t play so well, but in the second we managed to improve and guarantee a place in the semis."

Russia were arguably less impressive as they beat the Czech Republic 4-2 on Thursday, but they were superb in the group stages of the tournament, winning all three games to finish top of Group B, scoring 21 and conceding just five.

Argentina were also unbeaten during the group stages and based on the form of both sides throughtout the Grand Prix de Futsal, this could go either way.

Prediction: Argentina to win.
