Argentina vs Mexico Match Info

2022 FIFA World Cup — Group Stage
Argentina (0-0-1) vs. Mexico (0-1-0)
Date: Saturday, Nov. 26, 2022
Time: 2 p.m. ET
Venue: Lusail Iconic Stadium — Lusail, Qatar
Coverage: FS1

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing with more action slated for Saturday, Nov. 26. One of the more interesting matches of the day is a Group C collision between Argentina and Mexico.

Argentina was absolutely shocked in its opening matchup, falling 2-1 to underdog Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, Mexico was involved in a 0-0 draw with Poland on Tuesday, making many people wonder if they have what it takes to contain the Argentinians.

Can Argentina overcome the last match's unfortunate result by winning on Saturday? Or will Mexico prove that it can successfully hang with one of the tournament favorites?

Argentina vs Mexico Prediction & Pick

Even though the Argentinians didn't open the World Cup with a victory, there are still reasons to back them in this matchup. After all, Argentina did control the ball for 69% of the game and even recorded six shots on goal compared to Saudi Arabia's two.

While Mexico held the ball for the majority of the time (61%) against Poland, Argentina is a completely different beast. La Albiceleste will be angry after the aforementioned loss. With Mexico also losing four of its last five games against Argentina, I'm backing the latter to get things done.

Final Score Prediction: Argentina: 2 | Mexico: 0
