Argentina vs Mexico Prediction

The evening of Saturday 26th November 2022 sees Argentina meet Mexico in both teams’ second match of the World Cup group stages. Argentina are the favourites to top Group C, but Mexico are not far behind them so this promises to be an exciting game.

Looking back on previous World Cup tournaments, Argentina have won twice and have been no strangers to the quarter-finals and semifinals over the past 30 years. Conversely, Mexico have failed to progress past the final 16 over the same period, although no doubt they are keen to break that trend this time around.

Argentina Latest News

Argentina are on super strong form at the moment, having not lost in over thirty international games in the lead up to the World Cup. This impressive tally includes the 2021 Copa America final against Brazil and the UEFA Cup of Champions final, where they beat Italy 3-0. Now that Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi has confirmed that this World Cup will be his last, no doubt his team are hoping that he can go out on a high, by adding a World Cup title to their list of recent accolades. Bookmakers are fairly confident this is on the cards, as Argentina are currently amongst the favourites to win the whole tournament.

Messi isn’t the only talent Argentina have got up their sleeve, though; Inter Milan super striker Lautaro Martinez will also be one to watch, as he matched Lionel Messi’s seven goals in the World Cup qualification rounds. Argentina are far from shoddy defensively too, as they hadn’t let any goals past them in the four international matches in the run up to the World Cup in Qatar.

Key points Argentina

  • Outstanding unbeaten run puts them on top form.
  • Striking firepower in Messi and Martinez.
  • Strong defence.

Mexico Latest News

The Mexico national team may not have made it past the last 16 at the World Cup since 1986, but they are no strangers to causing an upset at this tournament; in the 2018 World Cup they shocked everyone by stopping title holders Germany with a 1-0 win.

Fortunately Wolverhampton striker Raul Jimenez is back to training after seemingly recovering from his chronic groin injury, but in bad news for Mexico, winger Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona has been ruled out of the squad after having to undergo surgery for an ankle fracture.

While Mexico performed well in the World Cup qualification, their recent international form has been far from perfect. We wouldn’t rule them out of a second-place finish in Group C, though.

Key points Mexico

  • Key striker Jimenez back to full health to rejoin the squad.
  • Shaky recent international form.
  • Failure to progress past final 16 in past three decades.

Betting tips Argentina vs Mexico

Now for our Argentina vs Mexico prediction: While Argentina are the favourites here, Mexico shouldn’t be discounted entirely as they have consistently progressed to the final 16 in previous World Cup tournaments and are no strangers to a World Cup upset. However, their recent form has not been great, while Argentina are in an impressive run of over 30 unbeaten games.

With regard to Argentina vs Mexico betting tips, we expect Argentina to take the win here. While Mexico have some talented strikers, their ability to gel cohesively and score goals is distinctly lacking at the moment, and their best striker Jimenez has only just rejoined the squad following a niggling injury. Conversely, Argentina have the goal scoring genius of Messi alongside Martinez, who have contributed heavily to the team’s current unbeaten run. Bookies will take all of this under consideration when generating their Argentina vs Mexico betting odds.

In conclusion, our Argentina vs Mexico tips are going to take into account the fact that Argentina are most likely to win, and so bettors are unlikely to find valuable odds on that outcome. As Argentina have a strong tradition of scoring early doors, we would suggest finding more favourable Argentina vs Mexico odds on variations of Argentinian dominance, for example Argentina to score in the first half.
