Argentina – Mexico World Cup

Argentina face Mexico in a crucial game for both teams at the World Cup in Qatar on Saturday. This is a match from Group C of the competition. Let’s preview it in these free soccer predictions daily.

 

Argentina had the worst start possible in the World Cup – they suffered a shocking 1-2 defeat against Saudi Arabia in Lusail. Everyone expected a true domination by La Albiceleste, but in the second half the Green Falcons scored twice and managed to top the group. Football is just unpredictable!

 

Lionel Messi scored Argentina’s only goal in the game while in the first half three goals by them were disallowed. In the second half they tried to get back in the game, but without success.

 

Most likely Argentina’s manager Lionel Scaloni will make changes in the team. Players like Lisandro Martinez, Marcos Acuna, Enzo Fernandez and Julian Alvarez could find themselves in the line-up. Surely Argentina needs to try something different in the next game.

 

Mexico had a little bit better start of the World Cup as they got a point in the match against Poland – 0-0. Things could have been different if Guillermo Ochoa didn’t save Robert Lewandowski’s penalty in the second half. For Ochoa it was another majestic performance in the World Cup in his career.

 

Mexico’s manager Gerardo Martino started Raul Jimenez from the bench against Poland, but Wolverhampton Wanderers’ striker could find a place in the line-up again. The Argentine head coach is facing his home country so it’s going to be interesting. Gerardo Martino managed La Albiceleste between 2014 and 2016. He’s a very capable manager who is participating at his second World Cup after 2010.

 

That’s the free soccer predictions daily for the World Cup match between Argentina and Mexico from Group C. Can Messi’s team win its first points in the tournament? Or Mexico will put an end to their hopes?
