Head-to-Head
Argentina 11 wins, Mexico 1 win, 4 draws

Quick Stats
  • Over 2.5 goals is 6-0 in Argentina’s last 6 games
  • Argentina is undefeated in its last 8 games against Mexico (7 wins, 1 draw)
  • Mexico has failed to score in 4 of its last 10 matches overall and its last 3 at the World Cup

Preview
Argentina’s loss means that they will have to come out with all guns blazing. Their history against Mexico indicates that they can bounce back in style. Argentina is undefeated in its last 8 against Mexico with 7 wins and a draw. Moreover, they have scored multiple goals in all 8 of those matches with an average of 2.75 goals per game during that stretch. Almost 70% possession and 15 shots should have been enough to collect maximum points against Saudi Arabia. Over 2.5 goals is 6-0 in Argentina’s last 6 and with both sides needing a result, we believe that this will be a high scoring contest. 

Mexico has had next to no success shutting down Argentina’s attack in the past, or South American opponents in general. They have lost their last 4 against South American opposition at the World Cup, two of which came at the hands of Argentina. Inconsistency can creep into Mexico’s game. They have failed to score in 4 of their last 10 matches leading into the tournament and have also been kept scoreless in their last 3 World Cup matches. 

Player To Watch
They say the cream rises to the top when it matters most and Argentina needs its talisman to step up like never before. He put his side ahead from the spot against Saudi Arabia but had multiple opportunities to put his side further ahead. We believe Messi will be able to get into space but cannot afford to rely on his teammates this time around. Di Maria is the only other player in the squad with a World Cup goal to his name. The time for Messi to show us his greatness has arrived!
