Argentina vs Mexico Match Preview and Team News
Nobody in their right mind saw Saudi Arabia beating Argentina on matchday 1, but it happened. Argentina started the game so well with Messi converting a penalty, but a series of offside goals seemed to hit the Argentina side hard, and in the second forty-five, they were outplayed and outfought by the Saudi Arabian players and deserved to lose the game. Argentina simply have to respond with a win against Mexico, and we believe they will, but if they don’t, Messi’s World Cup career will end on a very sour note. Angel Di Maria finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Lautaro Martinez is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Lionel Scaloni has a number of decisions to make ahead of Saturday’s clash, with the fitness of Lionel Messi still in doubt.
Mexico played out a goalless draw with Poland, which might not look like a bad result following Argentina’s surprise defeat. However, the game itself was poor, and both Mexico and Poland will have to improve in the final third if they want to get out of this group and go any further in the World Cup, as a solid defense alone won’t be enough. Mexico needs to get more out of their forwards, and that could be tricky, seeing as their best striker, Jimenz, hasn’t played much football over the last year or so. Alexis Vega enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and goes toward the goal, the opponent has problems because he passes through the defense like a fast train. Edson Alvarez found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. The form and fitness of Raúl Jiménez remain a concern for Gerardo Martino, who may look to field Hirving Lozano as a false nine against Argentina.
