Argentina and Mexico go head-to-head on Saturday in a match that is set to be very exciting. The South Americans lost their first game of the cup against Saudi Arabia and saw their undefeated streak come to an end at 36 games. Messi and the rest of the squad want to avoid what happened to Argentina in 2002 and a win against the Aztecs is the only way to go.
During the last 30 years, Argentina and Mexico have faced each other on 17 occasions, with 16 wins for Argentina, 14 draws and just 5 wins for the Aztecs. This win was way back in 2004, when Mexico defeated Argentina 1-0 in the group stage of the Copa America.
If you are looking for strikers in the Argentinian national team to rely on, you should keep an eye out for Lionel Messi (of course) and Lautaro Martinez, who scored the same amount of goals as Lio Messi in the World Cup Qualifying stage.
Argentina tends to score in the first half, as they did against Saudi Arabia in their first game of the cup. They scored the first goal at under 20 minutes in four of the last five matches they played, so it’s expected for them to surprise Mexico with a fast attack to assert their dominance in the World Cup game on Saturday. While Mexico is a good contender for the runner-up position in the group, with Argentina’s loss in the first game, both group positions are up for grabs.
Normally, Argentina would be huge favorites, but after what happened during the week, Mexico has a great chance of finally beating them in a World Cup and sending them home in the group stage, which would definitely be the total upset of Qatar 2022. However, this is when Argentina is most dangerous, and the Mexicans will have to look out for Messi and Lautaro.
