Argentina striker Sergio Aguero believes that Germany will be favourites to win the World Cup final in the Maracana on Sunday evening.

Die Mannschaft head to Rio in buoyant mood after demolishing host Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals, leaving Aguero to try and up the pressure on the Germans by saying that they will be expected to lift the trophy.

"Germany were always the favourites, along with Brazil, to win the World Cup," Aguero told reporters. "They continue to be so now. We need to play our own game and it suits us that all the pressure is on them.

"We want to have control of the ball, but we know that Germany is a great team that know each other off by heart having played together for many years.

"It is clear that Argentina always go out to win, but sometimes during the game you have to be cautious.

"We are all aware of what the objective is and we will leave everything on the field to achieve it."

Argentina needed penalties to see off the Netherlands in their semi-final, having won by a single goal against both Belgium and Switzerland in their two knockout stages games.

Superstar Lionel Messi has failed to score since the group stages, but remains the man who Argentina hope will be able to decide the final in their favour.

Argentina and West Germany met in the 1986 and 1990 World Cup finals, with the La Albiceleste winning the first meeting 3-2, before an Andreas Brehme penalty secured a 1-0 revenge victory for the Germans four years later.
