Leonel Messi, the maestro of football, will be desperate to issue a response this weekend after "La Albiceleste" experienced one of the biggest shocks in football history on matchday one. In case you don't know, Argentina are considered favourites to win the 2022 World Cup, so a win here is the only way to give bettors like us some hope. Considering the defeat to Saudi Arabia was only their first in 37 games in all competitions, there is a good chance that Lionel Scaloni's men will leave Saturday's game with all three points.

Meanwhile, Mexico picked up a point against Poland on matchday one to move ahead of Argentina in the Group C standings. But given that the Mexicans have won only one of their last eight meetings with "La Albiceleste" in all competitions, it would be another shock if they were to pick up a win this weekend.

Argentina vs Mexico Betting Tips: Team 1 to win

Although the Argentines left their opening game empty-handed, they did not disappoint some bettors, as they are known for their fast start to games. In each of their last seven matches in all competitions, they have scored the first goal within the first 30 minutes, which is likely to be the case here too.

And given Mexico's poor record in head-to-head meetings between these two teams, we think they will have to wait for their next game to get their first win at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Argentina Team News

Argentina did not suffer any injuries in their defeat to Saudi Arabia, but head coach Lionel Scaloni is expected to make some changes to the side that started that game.

Manchester City striker Julián Álvarez impressed after coming on in the final 30 minutes of the game and could therefore be in the starting eleven, although there are plenty of other options.

Should either of them start, Lautaro Martinez would have to settle for a place on the bench, while Alexis Mac Allister could get a place in the engine room.

Mexico Team News

Just like the hosts, Mexico did not suffer any major damage in their opening game, so there is no reason why coach Gerardo Martino should shuffle the team that merited the point against Poland.

However, the team lacked penetration in the final third and that is the only area where we can envisage changes, with Liga MX winger Uriel Antuna leading the race for a starting spot.

Ajax midfielder Edson Álvarez and Napoli winger Hirving Lozano are the big names in the squad and are set to make their 60th and 62nd international appearances respectively for the Mexican national football team.
