Argentina, one of the favorites to win the World Cup, will look to get their campaign back on track when they face familiar foe Mexico Saturday. Lionel Messi and company are coming off of that shocking 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia and have no more margin for error as they aim to position themselves in the top two of Group C ahead of their final match against Poland. Mexico are also looking for their first win but are sitting in a better position after drawing Poland in the opener. Argentina and Mexico played at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups knockout stages with the South Americans winning both.
Argentina face Mexico at the Lusail Stadium on Saturday as the Albiceleste aim to get their 2022 World Cup campaign back on track after a shock defeat at the hands of Saudi Arabia, while El Tri also failed to make a winning start as they were held to a goalless draw against Poland.
Lionel Messi and co. succumbed to a 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia that marked the end of Argentina’s 36-game unbeaten streak, even as the reigning Copa America champions entered the tournament as major favourites.
For Mexico, meanwhile, veteran goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa kept out Robert Lewandowski’s penalty as Tata Martino’s side survived to earn a 0-0 draw. It therefore boils down to a crucial clash in Group C as both teams need a win to boost their knockout chances.
