Match Preview: Argentina vs Mexico

After suffering one of the greatest shocks in World Cup history, Argentina is set to take on Mexico in a must-win encounter.  For Lionel Scaloni to put his team back together for a game that has grown incredibly important, only four days left. No of the initial results, Gerardo Martino, the manager of Mexico, knew this match would be important. Before retiring in 2016, the manager, who was born in Rosario, led Argentina to two Copa America finals. Both of those games were won by Chile via penalties.

Despite obviously having their reputations tarnished by the devastating loss to Saudi Arabia, Argentina seems to bounce back without any fresh injury concerns. On Tuesday, Scaloni decided not to employ any of his attacking options, staying exclusively with Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria, and Messi.

Henry Martin was substituted for Raul Jimenez in the final 20 minutes of the play against Poland because Martino preferred Henry Martin over the Wolverhampton Wanderers striker. Jimenez, who has been slowly getting back into form following a season marred by injuries, might soon make his first start in a competitive game.

Argentina vs Mexico score prediction

Argentina entered the game with a 36-match winning streak, therefore Scaloni’s team may no longer be regarded as unbeatable. Nevertheless, this shouldn’t be fully ignored. The Albiceleste have never lost back-to-back matches under Scaloni. After his first loss as a coach, Argentina actually defeated Mexico in their very next game.

Following his initial disappointment, Messi’s post-game thoughts swiftly turned to his next opponents, who defeated Poland with a superior team but need Robert Lewandowski to miss a penalty in order to earn a point. He made it clear that “The time has come to emphasize the group’s cohesion and strength. We need to work on our unity even more now. It’s time to unwind.” If Argentina can recapture the composure that underpinned their winning streak against El Tri, they should be able to prevail. However, they haven’t so far carried out the plan.
