Argentina vs Mexico
International – Friendly
Date: Wednesday, 21 November 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Malvinas Argentinas (Mendoza)
Argentina host Mexico for their second clash in just days but in Mendoza this time around, hoping to build on the Saturday’s success against the rivals and impress in front of the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas with a rotated line-up as Lionel Scaloni lifts the dressing room spirits.
Albiceleste have been quite unpredictable beforehand and the win in Cordoba marked a return to the winning ways after Brazil turned a narrow contest their way with a last-gasp winner from Joao Miranda. They’ve had troubles connecting winning results and they now look for their only first streak of two in a row since November last year.
Mexico, on the other hand, have a crisis on their hands and the last week’s loss was the sixth in seven outings for Ricardo Ferretti’s men – despite reaching the World Cup 8th Finals along the way. They will now be desperate to end the unwanted streak late in 2018 and we expect a solid challenge on Wednesday too, with Wolves’ Raul Jimenez leading the line.
Argentina vs Mexico: Head-to-head
- Mexico haven’t beaten Argentina since 2004 and their Copa America Group stage win (0-1).
- Argentina have earned six wins and two draws in eight head-to-head matchups since.
- We’ve seen three or more goals in five of the last six too!
Argentina vs Mexico: Prediction
We do believe Argentina now have what it takes to put on another solid display here and we’ll back them to another comfortable win, sticking with Asian Handicap -1.5 at 2.75. We believe Scaloni’s men will be very motivated to impress and Mexico could have troubles coping.
However, we do feel we’re in for more goals between the sides this time around and with that in mind, going for Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.20 seems overpriced. The visitors will be wanting to find the net this time around and we do see it coming at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas.
