Karim Benzema: A few number nines are mainly hold-up men, some others aren't out-and-out strikers, some others will share the goals around. But Benzema ticks the boxes: good season, playing alongside multiple playmakers, easy group, should make the quarter-finals.
Lionel Messi: It's fill-your-boots for Argentina's front line until the quarters at least. Gonzalo Higuain has a better goals-to-game record than Aguero, but penalty-taker Messi looks the safest bet. For longer odds, Romelu Lukaku given Belgium's draw.
