At the World Cup in Qatar, Argentina will play Mexico on Saturday night in Group C's second round.
Since losing to Brazil in the 2019 Copa America, Argentina had begun a record-breaking 36-game unbeaten streak. They came into the competition as one of the favorites since they were the defending South American champions. When they suddenly fell to Saudi Arabia in their World Cup opening, 1-2, it was one of the biggest surprises we have ever seen.
Mexico and Poland drew 0-0 on Tuesday to give their campaign a largely stable start. The Mexicans in this occasion did not allow the Polish invaders any room. We must acknowledge, though, that their defense did not appear to be at its best in recent friendly against Sweden and Colombia.
Eight games between Argentina and Mexico have been played, with seven victories and one tie. More than ever, they are in desperate need of a victory. It is challenging to think that Argentina won on Saturday night without their highly motivated team.
Pick: Argentina -0.5/1
