Argentina vs Mexico / International – Only four days after they won defeated them by 4-0 in Cordoba, the Argentineans will again face Mexico but this time in Mendoza. Naturally, it will be interesting to see what changes will make both managers compared to the previous match, especially as the Argentineans have seven-game unbeaten streak of six wins and one draw against Mexico.
Argentina vs Mexico begins 21.11.2018 at 01:00 CET
The last victor of 2-0 in Cordoba was a welcome development for Argentina as it helped them to regain their self-confidence after they lost last month in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to their biggest rival Brazil 1-0. Before that, under command of new manager Scaloni the Argentineans won two friendlies, with Guatemala and Iraq, and drew one with Columbia, although we all still remember their pale performance from the last World Cup in Russia as they were eliminated already in the round of 32.
Right because of that no one was surprised that Scaloni made number of changes after he took over the national team and for some time he doesn’t invite Messi, Higuain, Aguera and di Maria, and instead he promoted Icardi and Dybla into new leaders of the national team. Still, he doesn’t use them often together and in the second match with Mexico we expect to see players who weren’t starters in Cordoba four days ago.
Probable lineups Argentina: Romero – Saravia, Funes Mori, Otamendi, Tagliafico – Lo Celso, Ascacibar, Meza– Lamela, Icardi, Cervi
Regarding the Mexicans, we have said earlier that they didn’t win Argentina for a long time, and their self-confidence went down further after they lost in Cordoba 2-0 four days ago. True, manger Ferretti has a partial excuse for defeat as he hasn’t invited for this gathering of the national team several biggest stars like defenders Salcedo, Moreno and Ayala, midfielders Herrera, Guardado and Pizzarro, and forwards Corona, Vela, Lozano and Chicharita.
On top of it, the Brazilian coach has managed to defeat only Costa Rica since he took over Mexico, while before the Argentineans he lost another three friendlies; to Uruguay, USA and Chile. Right because of that we are certain that he will make several changes in the team before new match with Argentina, and will probably use different tactical set-up.
Probable lineups Mexico: Gonzalez –Layun, Reyes, Araujo, Gallardo – Guemez, Gutierrez – Brizuela, Fabian, Aquino – Jimenez
Argentina vs Mexico PICK
