Argentina Under Pressure as They Face Mexico in Group C

Argentina vs Mexico - 26/11/2022

The 2022 World Cup continues on the 26th of November with four fixtures including the meeting between Argentina and Mexico in Group C. The second round of games is always key in the group stages of the competition and both teams know a win could be vital for the chances of progressing to the knockout stage.

Argentina come into the game on the back of a huge shock as they went down 2-1 to Saudi Arabia in their first group match. Argentina opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 10th minute and everyone expected them to go on and win the game comfortably.

However, Saudi Arabia came out strongly in the second half and equalised in the 48th minute. The unbelievable happened just 5 minutes later as Saudi Arabia took the lead and Argentina had no answer to their high defensive line.

The loss for Argentina was one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history and they need to bounce back quickly. If we look back at previous World Cup matches, their form is not good and Argentina have won only 1 of their last 7 games at the tournament.

Recent form shows Argentina are undefeated in 36 of their last 37 games in all competitions, including friendly matches. They managed to score at least 1 goal in 7 of their last 8 World Cup qualifying games .

Mexico started their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a 0-0 draw against Poland. Mexico will be happy to come away from the game with a point as they started the match well only to concede a penalty in the 58th minute. Guillermo Ochoa rose to the occasion and saved the penalty to earn his team a point.

That result means Mexico have won only 1 of their last 4 games in all competitions, including friendly matches. They lost against Colombia and Sweden in friendly games prior to the tournament with the win coming over Iraq in a friendly match earlier this month.

Trends show Mexico have not been beaten in 32 of their 35 most recent matches in all competitions. They finished World Cup qualifying with a run of 6 games without defeat, including wins over Jamaica, Honduras, Panama, and El Salvador.

Mexico have scored at least 1 goal in 4 of their last 5 matches.

Team news and Argentina could make some changes to their starting XI. Lisandro Martínez could come into central defence with Enzo Fernández starting in midfield.

Mexico could make just the one change from their opening game, with Raul Jiménez replacing Henry Martín in attack.

This must go down as a game Argentina need to win. They cannot afford another poor performance and we expect them to step up a level against Mexico. The Mexicans could score in this game but Argentina, on their day, should have too much for Mexico and claim their first win of the tournament.
