Argentina vs Mexico Analysis

ARGENTINA

Their 2018 tournament did not go to plan, and they got off to the worst possible start this time, with a 2-1 loss to perceived minnows Saudi Arabia. This is likely to be Lionel Messi’s last tournament, and they know that a victory here is required to keep them in the mix for a place in the last 16.

Key Players: Lionel Messi, Lautaro Martinez, Cristian Romero

Team News: They have strong attacking talent in the side and Lionel Scaloni will have to balance the creative flair with defensive discipline, something they lacked against Saudi Arabia.

Predicted Line-Up: Martinez, Montiel, Otamendi, Romero, Tagliafico, Mac Allister, De Paul, Lo Celso, Messi, Martinez, Di Maria

Mexico

World Cup regulars since 1994, they have made it to the knockout rounds of the last seven editions of this tournament. However, they had to rely on goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa to keep them in the match against Poland in their opener, and he is sure to be in for a busy 90 minutes in this clash once more.

Key Players: Guillermo Ochoa, Hector Herrera, Hirving Lozano

Team News: They have an ageing side with plenty of experience. Ochoa, Herrera and Guardado all have at least 100 caps and have been to multiple World Cup Finals. Their experience will be vital to any hopes of progression from the group.

Predicted Line-Up: Ochoa, Araujo, Montes, Sanchez, Gallardo, Alvarez, Guardado, Rodriguez, Corona, Lozano, Jimenez 

Argentina vs Mexico Prediction

Argentina have failed to lose against Mexico in their previous ten meetings. They have won all three matches against them at the World Cup and can continue that trend in Qatar in what is a must-win game for La Albiceleste.
