One exciting game is ahead of us. Even though it is a friendly match, whenever Argentina and Mexico meet, that is a spectacle. Both sides nourish a big rivalry, and those clashes are very intense. Plus, we have another interesting situation here. Mexico’s coach Tata Martino is not only from Argentina, but he also led their national team a few years ago. So that will just make everything even spicier.
The Argentinian side is struggling to deliver a big success. The last time they had a chance to win a trophy was in 2016, during Martino’s stint when they played the finals of Copa America but lost for the second year in a row against Chile. Everything following that was even more frustrating for the Argentinians who experienced failure after failure. The last match they played was against Chile on Friday, which ended 0-0. Before that, they met with the same rival at Copa America, in the battle for the third place, and they won 2-1. They are playing very tough and strong, and there aren’t many goals in their matches. Only that victory against the Chilean side saw more than 2.5 goals in the latest 7 events. Plus, five of those games ended without both teams scoring.
Mexico flourished under Martino. El Tri have 11 games in which they haven’t lost, and even those two which ended with a draw, were, in the end, victorious after the overtimes or the penalties. It is a pleasure to watch this team, as they play very fast and efficient, with a very aggressive approach in the midfield. The transition is superb, and Martino perfected that aspect of their game. The Mexicans won the Gold Cup played in the USA, by defeating the hosts in the finals with 1-0. They played this Friday against the same opponent and beat him even easier with 0-3. In those 11 victories, El Tri hasn’t scored two or more goals only twice, and this tells you a lot about the way they play.

What everyone wants to know is will Lionel Messi play in San Antonio this Tuesday. The answer is no because Barcelona’s leader wasn’t planned to spend time with his national team.
On the other side, La Roja comes without Arturo Vidal who also plays for Barca, but with Alexis Sanchez.
We believe that the Mexican side has fantastic potential. With the arrival of Martino came fine-tuning of an already very strong team. By looking at the names on their roster, you can see that they aren’t behind the Argentinians when talking about the depth and the overall quality. Because of that, we are going to be courageous and propose betting on their victory. 888Sport has a very good offer, with the odds at 14/5 for El Tri to rout the two-time World Champs.
The second recommendation will be about goals. The Mexican team plays offensive and efficient, but they too know how to close all the paths towards the goal. Argentina, in the meantime, relies upon a heavy defence, and waits for the counterattacks, especially without Messi. Therefore, a moderate efficiency 2 or 3 goals, will be the most realistic outcome. Bet365’s odds for that are 21/20.
