Follow the results of one of the favourites to win the tournament with our Argentina vs Mexico prediction for Group C. This match, which will be played on 26/11/2022 at 19:00, is just one of the many World Cup 2022 predictions we have prepared for this edition. This is a historic match, so we have carefully analysed all the statistics available on both teams. We also explored the main bookmakers in the UK to tell you which ones offer the highest odds to bet on this Argentina vs Mexico match.

⚽ Argentina National Team

After winning their first title in more than 30 years, the Argentina national team will go to Qatar in search of their third star. After winning the Copa America, the Argentines are third in the FIFA rankings.

👟 How Did Argentina Qualify?

The Argentina national team qualified easily during the CONMEBOL Qualifiers. They came second, only behind Brazil. However, they did so undefeated.

Their final tally was 11 wins and six draws. They played one game less than the rest of the teams, as their match in Brazil was cancelled after problems with the Brazilian football federation.

🔝 Argentina's Players to Follow

Argentine players average 27.4 years of age. This is not surprising, as this is a team full of players who will be playing in their last World Cup (although there are some promising young players).

These could be the most valuable players during the World Cup for Argentina:

  • Lionel Messi (PSG)
  • Ángel Correa (Atlético de Madrid)
  • Cristian Romero (Tottenham)
  • Lisandro Martínez (Manchester United)
  • Lautaro Martínez (Inter)

Lionel Messi knows: if he wins this World Cup, he will be considered the greatest player in the history of football. This is the last chance for a golden generation full of great players.

⚽ Mexico National Team

Despite no longer being the CONCACAF giants, Mexico is still the best team in the region in terms of FIFA rankings: it is ranked 13th, above the United States and Canada.

👟 How Did Mexico Qualify?

Mexico started the CONCACAF Qualifiers in the 2nd round. They got the direct ticket by finishing in second place behind Canada. They tied on points, but the Canadians had a better goal difference.

It was one of the most closely contested qualifying rounds in CONCACAF history. Mexico finished with 28 points, just three more than the United States and Costa Rica. One false step could have left them out of the World Cup.

🔝 Mexico Players to Follow

A very interesting aspect of the Mexican national team is that its players come from Liga MX and the best leagues in Europe. This is an excellent combination. That said, the average age is a bit high: 27.6 years.

These could be the most valuable players during the World Cup for Mexico:

  • Alexis Vega (Chivas)
  • Hirving Lozano (Napoli)
  • Raúl Jiménez (Wolves)
  • Edson Álvarez (Ajax)
  • Érick Sánchez (Pachuca)

Despite being the all-time leading scorer for the Mexican national team, Javier Hernández will not be on Tata Martino's list of call-ups. This is undoubtedly a very delicate loss considering the current form of other Mexican strikers.

🆚 Argentina vs Mexico History

Of all the group stage matches, this Argentina vs Mexico prediction is the one with the most history to consider. The two teams have been meeting for almost 100 years.

Argentina and Mexico have met 31 times, with 15 wins for the Albicelestes (Argentina National Team), four for El Tri (Mexico National Team) and 12 draws. This includes a long list of friendly matches (the last of which was in 2019).

They have met 8 times in official tournaments, with a largely favourable balance for Argentina: 6 wins, 1 draw and just 1 defeat. They only failed to win against El Tri in the Copa América.

This is the record of Argentina 🆚 Mexico in the World Cup:

Tournament: Result: Date:
World Cup 3-1 (Argentina)27/06/2010
World Cup 2-1 (Argentina)24/06/2006
World Cup 6-3 (Argentina)19/07/1930

According to the record, Mexico should be worried about not getting beaten by Argentina to try to fight for second place in the group. The Albiceleste have not lost to El Tri since 2004.

💸 Statistics for Argentina Mexico Predictions

As we have already mentioned, we do not leave out any data to prepare these Argentina vs Mexico predictions. We see no way the Mexican national team can get the 3 points.

Take into consideration these 3 facts:

  • Argentina are two games away from equalling Italy's record as the team with the most consecutive matches without loss. The Albiceleste have gone 35 games without defeat since doing so in the 2019 Copa America.
  • Lionel Messi has returned to the level he was at when he played for Barcelona. In his first 17 games for PSG, the Argentine cracker was involved in 25 goals (12 goals and 13 assists).
  • Mexico have a dismal record against Argentina: 15 defeats, 12 draws and 4 wins; only one of them in an official tournament. They have met 3 times in the World Cup, with 3 wins for the Albiceleste.

The history and current form of both teams makes us think that the Albiceleste will take the 3 points with relative ease. Especially considering that Mexico had the luxury of leaving Chicharito at home.
